Spring Island Chicks Show in Anacortes!

Just home from Working at Joyworks today (Sunday) and finally gearing down after the "Island Chicks" Show in Anacortes yesterday!

We had a Great Show! I think everyone had a good time! Here are a few photos from my little booth...

Mostly neutrals, aqua and "old Lady Pink."

Had a stack of Vintage Suitcases,,,,,with a vignette in the top one.............

some headbands/fabric rosette's and Vintage jewelry.............

Fabulous Show!! I had SO much fun, on So many levels and went home with a LOT less than you see here!!

Perhaps I should have waited to post when I was a bit LESS tired,,,,,,,,but have a busy week ahead around HOME and working on my Fall Event, " A Scoop of Vintage!" Can't wait to share more with you all!!!

Before I end this post, I have to say that MOST of what made this event SO amazing, were the people!! The best Promoters for the show! (Jo and Jackie), the Amazing Vendors that worked SO hard, the Food that was Fabulous for US and the shoppers (Gere-a Deli) The great Friends that stopped by, shopped and Supported us All!! And for me, most of all, my dear friend Linda Jensen, who "had my back," made me laugh, thought of things that I'd forgotten, took charge at times AND helped me with anything I needed help with!! I am Blessed to call her "Friend!"

(On our way home, in the Skagit Valley, Linda, My "Rock Star" friend!!)

Happy Trails...........hope you are all well!!
Hugs, Love and a "Chickie" Bus!!

Getting Ready for Spring Island Chicks Show!

Getting ready for the Island Chicks Show on Saturday, April 27th! Hope to see you locals there!! Always love doing this show, but this time, I fear, it will be a bit sad/hard because I won't have my "Mary Girl" there. She is undergoing Chemo, each week again. And her spirit is Good! But the tumor cannot be removed.....apparently just held in "Check". So I hold my breath,,,,,,,,and each day, each conversation, each moment is a GIFT!

I know personally that this is how we all need to live our lives. In light of recent tragedies and disasters, that is the ONLY true way we can live.

On that note, I'll just say that I wish you the Best in every moment, every encounter,,,,,for we never know. But I DO know that these adversities and challenges bring out the best in so many. And for that I thank God. There ARE smiles/hope and kindnesses in our lives in these hard times.......I think it is important to focus on THAT!!

Hugs, love and a "Bus" on the Cheek of Gratitude for the Good in life!
