Prairie Sisters Comes To Town!

You gotta love it when something as amazing as this comes to town

 The Prairie Sisters Vintage Market was at our convention center for a short stay last Saturday. I had been waiting on the edge of my seat for this event to finally roll around! And so had a throng of others

What a visual treat. You literally had to elbow (or at least wait your turn)
to get into the booths. With over 60 vendors, there was something for everyone.

 And super cute decorating ideas!  


 And super friendly Prairie Sisters!

And the fantastic girl band

In fact, I had so much fun and there was so much to see, that I had to go back for a second time later in the afternoon. If you ever get the chance to attend one of Prairie Sisters markets, this is a MUST DO! It is a real junk lovin'/vintage lovin' affair.

Next post I'll show you some of the AWESOME glamping trailers that were exhibited at the show.

Catching Up

Here we are into another week of April already. Time can really get away from me. Not that I have such an exciting social life...just everyday living that rolls one day into the next

Of course Easter day has passed. It was a quiet day here with just one of my fledglings and the Hubs at home. We celebrated with our traditional Breakfast Souffle, church service, delicious evening meal, and a cheery, but simple tabletop.
I did a little quickie craft project of decoupaged eggs with a tutorial I found here
Heather did an amazing job of explaining this easy little project. I added the "JOY" label to each egg and gave one to my co-workers.

 On Saturday, my youngest fledgling came home for an overnight visit. She was on Spring Break. Our time together was short, but so very sweet. We had a lot of fun at the Prairie Sisters Vintage Market.We brought her boyfriend and the Hubs along to try to get a grasp of the popularity of the "Vintage/Junkin'" trend.

 More about that and pictures in my next post. I had the rare weekend off. The weather was great. But alas, this morning I woke up to an inch of snow!
Gotta love that Spring weather. At least I can enjoy the season indoors.

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend. Next post I'll show you what fun I had at the Prairie Sisters Vintage Market.
