The Prairie Schooner...

i have been home since late last night from the most *unbelievable* experience ever!!

with a 20 hour drive with nothing much but my thoughts {and an *amazing* husband!} :0) i have yet to find the words to describe Barn House...

i cry thinking of the love, beauty, and complete *magic* that joe and jermonne have created and most important *LIVE*...

nothing but pure beauty in each and every way from the vendors, friends, shoppers, hosts, and location...

words are lacking; it is something i can simply not tell you about and have you understand...i hope with some photos the feeling of gentle *love* can be felt and shared...

i promised lots of photos and i do have many so i've decided to break it up into two parts, well maybe three, because i believe audree and tiffany deserve their own post!! :0)

first up....{The Prairie Schooner}...aka the saggin' wagon {NOT shaggin' wagon people!!} ;0)




the poor little thing had a pretty hard journey across the prairie...

i was worried that she wouldn't make it the entire day...

the heat and humidity where not very nice to her...but all was well and she made a beautiful covering for some faded goods...






this little photo is the first richard and i have had together since our wedding 13 years ago!?? can you believe it!!

*thank* you dear lara for the photo {it was SO good to finally meet you and your darling mom!!}, and *thank* you richard for being patient while i bossed, for building my crazy dream of having a covered wagon, and for being the best husband a girl could ask for!!


*thank you* dear joe and jermonne for including this humbled prairie girl, for the *amazing* support and encouragement, and for the *love* and *faith*... XOXOXO

*thank you* to all who stopped by and supported my dream...if you have photos please let me know, i would *love* to share them!!

tomorrow i will share some photos of the other booths and the *amazing* people who welcomed me with open arms...

Wow, no matter what vendor sets up at their show there's always such beauty there. It must be the BH Magic!! I see so many beautiful things here.

Amazing....you and your prairie finds are.

I was at the farm this weekend for four days. I did a little photo walk and took a picture of an old hog feeder that is Pride of the Farm! Absolutely love the one that you have. Smaller and easier to display than the monster out in the grove!

Ay yi yi! What amazing photos. I LOVE the photo of you and your husband-you guys are a fantastic looking couple.

I am so in awe of your booth---you are so creative and so humble. You ooze talent, but still seem as sweet as pie.

Hoping you have the best day!

Oh Kristin,
I am truly so happy that you got to live out one of your dreams!! Barn House looks absolutely amazing!!
And your booth looked fantastic!!! You are so talented. Love the photo of you and your husband, that sounds like my husband and I, not many photos of us in the past 18 years. That's a bit sad when you think about it! :)
I can't wait to see all of your beautiful photos.
Sincerely,
Melinda

Sorry we didn't get a chance to meet you all properly -- but you were too busy and we had to hurry through the show to leave for a wedding by 11:30. Your booth was wonderful and we absolutely LOVE the wagon! Hope to meet up soon.

Hey sweet Kristin!
What a J O Y to meet
you! I have to say,
your booth was really
the cutest there...I'm
just saying....it was
really clever and so
unique! I just wish I'd
been able to stop back
and say adios, but I
lost track of time and
had to skeedaddle on out
of there to meet my
mom by 1PM! I really
hope it was a successful
sale for you. You and
your hubby are such
a cute couple!
