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.
