                    Where has Summer Gone

Well I did it again,  I haven't blogged in 2 months.  I try but there just isn't enough hours in the day , days in the week or weeks in the months .  Really, I have just been busy.  

June was a whirlwind.  Getting ready and showing at the first ever New York Country Living Fair was crazy.  It was held at the  fairgrounds in Rhinebeck, NY. , which is in the Hudson Valley.  It was a gorgeous area.  So historic.  We passed by President Roosevelt's home and the Vanderbilts everyday.
All of the little towns were so quaint with shops and cafes.  I definitely will be going back.
The show was fabulous as always.  Great vendors. shoppers and food !  What more could you ask for? It did rain a little on Friday, but it didn't stop the shoppers.  They were out and about.  

When I used to have a retail store about 6 years ago,  I bought from Primitives by Kathy.  Well guess what ?  She shopped at my booth at the show.  Thought that was kinda neat.  She and Annie were even kind enough to take a photo with me.

The first week of July, we took a much needed vacation. And then it was back to work.  You know ...Auctions, junking, cleaning and fixing it all and of course sewing.  We have 4 fall shows, staring August 23rd and 24th with Bella Rustica in Nashville, TN.  So, I better get back at it.    I'll leave you with a few pics from the CLFair and some auction goodies !!!
