Hi Folks & Happy Sunday to you all ~

Looks like so much fun and boy could I have done some major shopping. Wish I could have joined you for such a wonderful gathering.

You must be completely zapped my friend - you can just tell the work that went into that....wow...so glad you took the time, tho, to post these photos for those of us who do not have the opportunity to attend in person. Each and every trunk and booth looks wonderful to me - feeds and fuels my primitive soul....Wishing you a more restful week ahead...Smiles & Blessings ~ Robin

Looks like you had a great show -- sure do wish I lived closer -- the pics show some good-looking items that I might just have taken home with me!
No shows like that around these parts, much to my dismay. But love looking at all the pics from different shows around the country.
Your friend, Pinocchio, is too cute -- asking for more peanuts!

Oh... it all looks gorgeous! You did a great job showcasing all the offerings. I want to see the "after" shot... I bet your visitors did a fair amount of plundering. I know I would have. :)

Hi Lori,

Just wanted to say thank you for being such a wonderful hostess. Sue and I loved setting up shop at your farm and enjoyed the numerous visits from your donkeys!

We are already talking about what we can conjure up for next year's show.
