Two girls out on road trip calls for some background music. We found this album to be the best.
My first trip out to you wonderful blogging friends did bring about moments of discipline. One is I love to buy. I love to buy alot, and I love to buy beautiful vintage items. I also wanted to take pictures, because pictures give the memories. Pictures tell the story. Problem I found, I don't do the two of these disciplines very well together. You see, while I'm trying to take a picture, I can see next shopper buying lovely vintage item that I want out of the corner of my eye. So first lesson, this junkin' girl either goes with the intention of buying, or she goes to take pictures. I have a pretty good I idea what direction I will choose.
My picture does not do this entry way justice. The hand painted curtains were lovely.
Looking through a huge paper wreath. Wish I would have taken more pictures of Anne Marie's breathtaking homestead.
Vignette swoon! Organic cake mixes are ready for purchase in a rusted shopping cart set center stage with an industrial light shinning down.
There was vintage beauty everywhere. As the evening started to fade and darkness set in the barn took on a warm glow. I wondered to myself how can this city girl get herself a barn?
Oh my goodness can this Parisienne Farmgirl bake. Two junkin' girls went home with a bag of these.
Now the lovely Anne Marie and Jen. Still working, one holding a pen, the other a plate of cookies. The creativity was beyond words.
Wish, oh wish I would have introduced myself to other bloggers that I admire. But first time out felt awkward, oh don't get me wrong everyone was kind, gracious, and so happy for you to be there. But it's a whole new world to me. This Midwestern girl, who has been a mom for so many years, now that her youngsters are grown she has found a need to roam. First Stop took her to Na-Da Farm. I do have one last picture. I do not know who the mother and daughter are. They were walking, leaving the sale at the same time we were. I couldn't resist asking if I could take their picture. They were pleasantly surprised. They had dressed for the occasion, and seemed so content with their cherished purchase.
As always I can't thank you enough for stopping by!
