Queen of Tarte Grand Opening

These pictures do not do justice to the magic that I participated in on Saturday.

My sister Carrie and I began our trek down to Cindy's Queen of Tarte Grand Opening of her new space (a huge barn) at 4 AM. After 2 1/2+ hours of driving we arrived in Oregon City. Walking through the doors was like walking into Wonderland. It was breathtaking! Cindy's guest vendors were the Barnhouse men, Joe and Jermonne and their area was the icing to Cindy's cake. Their styles compliment each other. It was all simply beautiful.

I was to get there early to help before the hoards of folk began coming. I helped a little but I was to unfocused because of the beauty that surrounded us. I couldn't decide what I wanted. Every thing was a must have. I came home with some wonderful treasures.

"If you build it, they will come". They did and I will again. Please see her site for upcoming events.

Spring fever

We have had some beautiful days up here in the NW. I am getting antsy to work in my yard. I have neglected my yard for over a year so it's going to be alot of work to get control of it again but I am looking forward to the hard work. The picture is part of my back yard. This was about a year + ago. It's a bit more overgrown now & I have to get in there with a machette. The small gold fish pond is barely noticeable but that is the way we like it. A small hidden surprise.
