tea time at the Vintage Barn!

Yesterday was a special day. Rolane Hopper of the Vintage Barn Antique Show had her annual vendor tea.

It is a great opportunity to visit with fellow vendors and swap stories.

It's also a time of refreshment and restoration (which was the theme of this year's tea - appropriate since Rolane and her husband are in the middle of a huge restoration project on the actual Vintage Barn - more on that here)

Rolane and her crew outdid themselves this year - at the last minute they moved the entire operation to the cutest shed because of weather issues - it was aDORable and the food was as pretty as it was delicious.

But don't take my word for it - see for yourself.....

touches of pink everywhere - here on the cupcakes!

and even here!

the setting.


Here's Virginia, of the Rusty Bird teaching us how to make *S* hooks from barbed wire.

and cute Holli taught us how to make tissue paper flowers.

The Barn on it's new foundation.

don't miss this event.

I mean it.

photo - FUN!

I just wasted an hour or so of my life on the website Photofunia.

I used this photo (taken five years ago at my brother's wedding):
and played around with it.....
Andy would be so jealous....

Then I found this....
...from my old band days.
Now this is more like it.

I always wanted to be on T.V.

This is fun.

It's easy.

Best of all....

It's free.
(and you can save them to your computer too)

Have fun!

Stay tuned for the latest on what I am creating for my next show.....
