Memories of Farm Chicks

Sorry for the late post today. You know when you come home from a trip you just get slammed with everything...tons of shipping to do, laundry and catch up in every other facet of life! But today I'm running on sweet memories of Farm Chicks. Good times shared with priceless friends, and new friends made are the best of those memories. I loved the experience in every way. Even the hard part as my Mom use to say, "good hard work is of the Lord". Here are more pics that I promised I would post including some sights and stops on our trip home. Thanks for sharing our journey with us! I'm sure there will be another Road Trip on our not so distant future, because.....well, we must!


We were excited to meet Lisa and her friend Isabel whom we've been blogging with before the show! Turns out we live nearly each other and a lunch date is in our future! Their booths were to die for!

Jardin's awesome booth...such nice ladies!

Candywinkle...darling candy themed gifts!

A cool display at Second Childhood Friends.

We stopped in the tiny town and Connell on the way home and hit the jackpot...3 antique stores! We scored here...

Scored big time here...

This one was a "small mall"...spent $4! Too much fun!
Part of the Gorge are filled with Wind Turbines. You know Oregon and their "green" mentality! Pretty Cool! What could be a better ending to our trip than a gorgeous sunset!

Hi Eileen and Karen... How fun to read all about your Farm Chicks adventure. Oh my what a job!!!

What a time we all had, huh??? I went to your booth a few times before the show and you were not there...probably shopping, huh??? Me, too! I hope you don't mind that I snapped a picture of part of your wonder-filled booth and put it on my blog....
