My wonderful finds

Ok so I'm feeling alittle sheepish about my favorite find this weekend at the garden show. I kept hearing people ask if they knew who got the such and such. Well the such and such I had no idea was so well known and I just noticed it was so cute and then thought wow it is so different and well my husband said you better buy it if you like it so much and all this at least 20 minutes after the show started. So just to clarify this was no early sneaky purchase. Yes the cute pink pig is now in Eugene and we love it .Thanks Sue !! And heare are a couple other fun things I found.

Wow what a Garden Show !

We may have bit off more than we can chew, We sold our garden cottage at the Monticello right before the Spring show so Marv worked so hard to have another one ready. Yeah! he got it finished just in the nick of time and we left Eugene at 6 am to set it up. We were back in Eugene to frantically pack up the vehicles to head back up this morning early. I spent the day setting up and was amazed at all the beautiful treasure and lovely venders. I got to see Auntie Joy," A day in the life", Sister in law Debbie "My Shabby Roses" Lynn (No blog),Donna and Dianna "Annie, Fannie and Abigail Art Studio", Martha "Vintage Trifles",and Diane/ Molly Mo "Molly Mo's", and Judy across from me. And now its back to Eugene to pack up for the Garden and Antique show we are setting up in Coburge which starts Thursday at 4;00. And remember the Monticello in Portland starts Friday at 10 am.

Preparing for Spring sales

Wow i am kinda starting to feel a bit of pressure as we are doing 2 Spring Garden shows, in two weeks. Wouldn't be a big deal but they are both the same weekend and two hours apart. One in Portland at the Monticello and one in the Quaint town of Coburg,known for it wonderful antiques. This seems to be the story of my life living always a bit on the edge. I seem to produce well under pressure. When the time crunch hits, I also seem to do weird things like make cookies, and various other tasks that make those around me wonder if I will get focused and pull things off in time for the deadline. I usually do, just not in an overly orderly way. The show in Coburg is sponsered by a wonderful store called Primrose Lane. It will beheld in 2 large older buildings and include various other venders. There is a food area and also an exspresso bar (which my daughter Grace will be running and believe me she makes great coffee drinks) .If you are up for a drive come and check it out. Thursday the 23, 4-8
Friday the 24, 10-6
Saterday 25, 10-4
