Farm Chicks Show 2013

We took a little girls' trip to Spokane, WA yesterday for the Farm Chicks Show.
Just the four of us: chummy, best friend~cousins, sweet  Nannie {my Mom}, and of course, me!
We laughed and talked and snacked all the way to the show and then plopped ourselves into a surreal amount of vintage goodness.
Oh my...it was overwhelming, but tantalizingly fun to feast your eyes upon all of the treasures.
It's kind of like walking around and dreaming a little dream at each booth. 
Which, by the way, was a never ending trail between the hundreds of vendors.
Serena Thompson does an incredible job with the show!!
I think I will just let the pictures do the talking...
{which are less than perfect...I was quickly snapping shots between all of the people!}


























 I have no idea what that iron orb was used for, but isn't it beautiful?













 The chairs and dresser were panted in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint {French Linen}. 
I was pondering that color for my kitchen hutch and it was nice to see the color in person :).




 These gals were wearing gas station attire...near and dear to my heart as we have four generations of mechanics/engineers in the family! I didn't realize I caught this sweet lady mid~ bubble blowing! Haha! Isn't she cute?




At the end, I think we were all out of gas!!
Filled to the brim and overflowing with ideas.
I hope this brought a little inspiration to your day, too.
If you have ever considered going to Farm Chicks, do it. The experience was well worth the $8 admission and an absolutely fantastic visit.

Blessings on your day...

I was there all weekend, yet so many things in your photos were things I hadn't seen! So much eye candy!
I did manage to bring home quite a few goodies.
I go with 3 girlfriends every year and we too, have sooooo much fun!
Thanks for sharing!
