Ruffles & Rust 2011

Kate and I had an amazing trip up to the Ruffles & Rust show. Timi sure knows what she’s doing, because I was in awe of the talent she pulled together for this event.  Eye candy everywhere you looked.  Booths where I literally wanted it all.  I really had to restrain myself because I could have gone a little crazy buying more than I actually did. I am not always the best at taking photos when I hit the shows, but I was proud of myself for getting a few snaps of some of my favorite peeps. I apologize as somehow, I always seemed to end up in the photo too.




Amy, Me and Kris from Today’s Country Store


Me and Deb from Garden Party (she’s a sweetie!)


Me and Karoline from Cherished Vintage


Mary Larsen and Me.


Shelly and Me.


Me and Timi’s posse.


Me, my home girl, Isabel and Kate.


Kate and me hamming it up.

Isabel took some amazing pictures of booths and lovely vignettes. You can see them here.

So, wondering what I bought? Thought you might be. That’s always my favorite part.


The two glass lamps came from a shop in Centralia we stopped at on our way there. The pillow was from Isabel’s booth, plates and juicer from Lisa, Sea Worthy Home, wicker basket from Karoline, wire planter from Shelly and I forget where I got the tea pot.


Button pins and blingy rings from Karoline, skeleton key necklace from Sara, bow pin at a shop in Centralia,  doll eyeball necklace from ReDeFind Vintage and metal hooks.

Didn’t buy anything big, which is a good thing as I am flush with furniture projects right now. Expo is coming up this weekend so there will be lots of out of town buyers coming into the malls. Need to get over, restock and fluff soon. Hope you have a fabulous Monday!

Added note: Not sure why some of my links aren’t working. I apologize for that, hopefully I can figure it out soon.

(Did you buy that Shade on the left from my booth when I wasn't there? Or is that one you got on your trip UP?....Because if you DIDN't buy it from me,,,,I have it's mate! If you want it, let me know,,I think it and the lamp were like $20,,but I'd sell you the shade for 5 Bucks,,,plus shipping (?) if you didn't get two....)Let me know!)
