Farm Chicks and a Giveaway

Oh my gosh, We had the best time at Farm Chicks.
See those clouds?
Yep it rained the entire time while we stood in line for almost 3 hours.

Here we are with our umbrellas. So glad we brought them along!
Warning... This post is heavy in pictures.

Was it worth it? You bet!
Check out this gorgeous booth!

A dress form covered in sea shells

Awesome displays

Love the planter at the top. it has 3 silver platters at the back

Gorgeous statuary

Even the kitchen sink!
a darling display

These two gals Shar and Amy looked so cute in their American Country attire.
Loved their country aprons and cowgirl hats.

the Cutest display for their store at American Country

Shabby Chic was everywhere

Mindi loved the little denim jacket

The cute vintage bras and crinoline's with a sign that read.
Thanks for your support..Were holding up just fine!



the gals shopping

Mindi's find of the day! A gorgeous bracelet

Debbie's find of the day. A dress form from the 1900's.
She named her Steel Magnolia.
Are you drooling yet? LOL

My find of the day.
Whats in the bag?

a huge pile of crystals. Yum yum!

I snagged some cool metal findings.

Ever see a lightbulb this big?
I'll find a Steampunk use for this one.

A found a wire basket for my spools of vintage lace and a
gorgeous round crocheted
tablecloth to make my hand dyed skirt.


Bed springs...I know kinda funny but they look awesome
on wine bottles with charms or as a vase for flowers.
 Also fonud some darling rusty fencing for a Halloween project.
and lots more goodies but this is getting a bit long so.....

All in all we came home with a car load full,
 tired feet and a pretty good hole in all our wallets.

I'll be doing a giveaway with some of what I found at Farm Chicks
 and a few more goodies from my stash.
Just leave a comment. I'll use a random # generator to pick a winner on June 14th.
Please make sure I have a way to contact you!

Awesome finds! I love all the gardening decor popping up... gives me some inspiration. And that bulb! I have my eye on a Victorian floor lamp that would suit it perfectly!
