Farm Chick Chic...Oooh La La!!!

Well, hello again! I know, I're just bored to death with all this Farm Chicks stuff right??? .......wha......huh......????  No???? Not really??? WELLLLLLLL.....then I'll share a few more lovelies from the show with you....since you're thirsty for more! :o)
Get a good look at this lovely custom headboard! Isn't it fabulous? Ok, I must admit...I am not here yet in my life. My husband would laugh at me if I brought this home for us. He would probably ask how this burlap would look with itty bitty peanut butter and jam finger smears, and his dirty work hat slung over one side! Well, just because I can't achieve this sort of lovely look in my bedroom....doesn't mean I don't adore looking at it!!!
The sweet vintage velvet and satin heart pillows are the bomb, and those adorable handmade cushions with the silky poppies are too freakin' cute no?!?!
I did seriously consider this practical little hamper with the fun laundry sign....if I didn't already have a laundry chute in my home, I'd probably have bought it. What a great idea!
Well, according to this Audrey Hepburn quote, I was one of the Prettiest girls at the Show! Tee hee hee!
Is this the most adorable sign ever??? The florals are too cute! Big salute to the creator of Happy Endings They had more creative ideas....'s one of the gals at Happy Endings chatting with La Von....I think she bought something there....but I can't remember what! It's all starting to blur together for me!
Kim went off exploring for awhile, and I finally caught up to her in this great booth. We ended up buying some things here as store displays for Grandiflora ( our shop ). I believe it was called Today's Country Store
Then we fell in love with the cool furniture in this booth called Retreat  This gentleman made the best furniture out of reclaimed should've seen the gigantic table they sold; unbelievable! He was such a nice and creative man. I loved his tables pictured here made with commercial bakery sheets turned upside down for tabletops! How fun is that!
Shortly after that we found these sweet girls in their booth ...Wild Whimsy   Again...those girls were not only ADORABLE they had some of the cutest stuff ever! My favorite was all the guitars that they had found and "renovated" to unbelievable cuteness! You can make some of them out in the background of this photo. Aren't their necklaces fun? Way too much talent between those girls.
By this time La Von had found the Fun Junk booth with all the was so much fun sifting through all the mish mash of vintage and antique goodness. My mom bought a bracelet made of all vintage clock faces in this booth....and I believe La Von found a bunch of tiny Bibles (see them in her hand?) which she collects.
We had our Gardening Radar on when we saw this cute display by Forget Me Not Dreams   Kim actually makes something similar to this for our shop....but it's more of a cold frame idea.
I passed up one of these bottle dryers once before for a pittance....and everytime I see one I weep at the thought of it! This photo was taken in Heather Bullard's booth isn't it lovely??? She has impeccable taste, no??? Find her here
This is Poor Pitiful Pam's booth....I don't Pity Pam....she has it all! Doggone woman rocks it as a matter of fact! Who the heck does she think she is anyway??? Pitiful my...... No, just kiddin! I loved this booth! All the whimsy, all the girliness, all the cupcake liners....uh....cupcacke liners???? Yes, cupcake liners! The top of that adorable dress is made completely of CUPCAKE LINERS!!! How fun is that! Well, Pam....if I am to pity will only be for the creative juices that must've kept you up for hours and hours dreaming up this adorable booth!
Well, what'dya think? Lovely yes? was so much fun soaking in all the creativity around us at The Farm Chicks Show

I hope you've been enjoying all of this! One more installment to complete the trip stay tuned for my next post! Until then, I'd love to hear your thoughts so please leave me a comment ok?

Cheers all !
