I am grateful this morning, after a day yesterday paved with many speed bumps and pot holes.  I am blessed to have a husband who makes homemade perfume with my little girl when I'm out for the day, takes her to the movies, and dines on Chic Fil A.  I am blessed by the many kind words my customers share with me when they visit my booth, I am blessed by the fellowship of other creative souls, and I was tremendously blessed by a very special wedding in the middle of my whirlwind day yesterday.  My friend Rachel married Peter, her "pearl of greatest treasure", in a spirit-filled ceremony that brought the roof down with praise and worship.  It was an amazing place of rest and renewal in the middle of a very hectic day for me.  Praise the Lord!

I'm preparing for my return to the French Market at Meadowbrook farm this morning, stocking my purse with cold medicine, bundling up in a few layers, and getting set to put the booth all back together again.  The junk evolution team sold like gangbusters yesterday as a result of their MAD design skills and great prices on a barn stuffed to the gills with gorgeous vintage finds.  It is like flipping through the pages of Country Living as soon as you step through those red dutch doors. You've got to get out there today from 12 to 5 if you know what's good for your country-lovin' soul!  

French Market Barn Sale is this Weekend!!

I've been spending almost every waking moment stitching up Pillows and Posies, Pennants and Cozies--all for the sake of the first annual Junk Evolution French Market at Meadowbrook Farm in Goshen this coming weekend.  You can find out all about it on the Junk Evolution Blog.  When I'm not sewing, I'm dreaming up little display vignettes for the booth (I'm hoping the lady next to me in church yesterday did NOT see the sketch I was working on during the sermon), and I think it is going to be oh so chic!  Come find out what I do with a couple of old shutters, a dress form, my mom's Schwinn cruiser and yards and yards of vintage scraps! 

Speaking of mom, she's going to lend a few hand-knitted items to the booth too:  some lovely nubby camera cases and felted flower pins.

There will be plenty of antiques, art, jewelry, and food, so bundle up, bring your little wire cart on wheels, and don't foget a mug full of your favorite steamy drink.  The sun has promised me to shine!
