The First Day

We had a wonderful time, the first day of the Craft and Antique show. People were lined up a half hour before opening, anxious to be the first ones to get a chance at all the goodies.
This happy camper plans to fill the wheelbarrow with pumpkins in the fall.

Though this picture is rather dark, the colors used by the girls at Grandiflora are amazing!! What a way to brighten a day.

Here's a happy couple with a picture they purchased.

Some people just have to be Divas.

Teens for Christ once again is providing some delicious meals and snacks for us. They have their coffee stand, which also serves up milkshakes,

And their food stand. I love their taco salad. Here are the kids in the kitchen,

And here they are in the coffee stand. They are really hard workers and do a fantastic job of serving everyone in a timely manner.
So folks, it's not too late. The show is open until 8 tonight, and 5 tomorrow.

Hi Hoe Nursery

Hi Ho, Hi Ho, it's off to work I go. . .
You know, I don't think there is any more rewarding work than that you do in the garden. I am so excited that spring is here and I can start spending my time clearing, planting, replanting and growing. And the best perks are the beautiful bouquets to put in your house.

Hi Hoe Nursery is owned and operated by Sharon and Craig Haugen in Lynden. Talk about your Happy Place!!!! We are so glad to have Sharon with us at the show this year. It's been a few years since she has been here.

Here is Sharon with her mock up booth. By the way, Sharon is the proud Grandmother of triplet girls, so be sure to stop by and share brags with her.

Sharon has such a knack for incorporating yard art into her gardens.

And her arrangements. What a gift.
I'm sure you will love her and her booth.
Only 4 more days!!! See you all there!

She Who Sews

Cheryl Boddy is a fabric addict! Is this a bad thing? That is debatable. For those of you who don't sew, you can find a myriad of handmade kitchen accessories in Cheryl's booth at our show. This picture shows her crocheting the much needed, famous net scrubbies. I can't live without them! I use them to clean dishes, pots and pans, the bathroom, the floors, EVERYTHING. And look at those lovely, bright fabrics.
Cheryl started doing shows to accommodate her passion for fabrics, so help her out by buying some nice goodies for yourself or a friend. Then watch her buy more fabric and create even more accessories for us! What a lovely circle game.
