Farm Chicks...the goods...






Well, what can I say other than...IT WAS FABULOUS!!!  What an amazing show Farm Chicks was!  And it started right here, with these two gals...



Jen and Tara were the best Farm Chicks roomies a girl could ever ask for!  I miss you two so much already!!

Despite the fact that it was very crowded and I was completely overwhelmed {I didn't know what to grab first!}, I managed to take A LOT of pictures.  I was going to split it all up into a few posts, but then I decided just to widdle it down a bit and show them to you all at once!

I spent a stalkerish amount of time in Heather Bullard's beautiful booth.  I couldn't get over it, it was so incredible!!!  And the nicest part was finding out that this mega talented woman is a truly kind and down to earth person!  These first shots are from her gorgeous booth...



















































I can't wait to do it all again next year!!!


Have a great week!


Tracey

HOW did you restrain yourself? I would've come home to a very angry husband because I would have cashed out our 401 k or something rash with all that lovely stuff!

You traveled so far away to go to the show- I can tell by your lovely images that the trip was worth it. Thanks for sharing, it makes me want to venture that way next year!

Your photos are lovely. They bring out the beauty of the show. It is just the best . I am already looking forward to next year.
I'm so sorry I didn't get a chance to meet you but I"m so glad you got a photo of my space! Looks like the chippy white garden cart will be going to the Barn House show in July. :0)

Beautiful pictures!

Here's to next year.

So many beautiful pictures and so much inspiration. I would have loved to be there. A little too long a journey, though... ;)
