Farm Chicks FabLushNess!!! ~ Come Junk With Us SHoPFunWowNess!!!

Better late then never I say. So it's not January but I'm making a new resolution to blog more faithfully. So unless I'm flat up in bed sick or I meet Mr. Wonderful and he sweeps me off my feet to Paris to get married and take me shopping I'll do my best. For about a year I've been terrible at posting faithfully even though I have fibromyalgia and it’s been pretty rough this last year I've decided I’m not going to let it get the better of me anymore. I'm going to pray, dream, create, blog and shop my way to better health. So even though it's been over a month since I was in Spokane I just couldn't go without posting about one of my favourite trips, WOW, another amazing Farm Chick Antique Show.

It's still as exciting as my very first time there 3 years ago with Mom and Auntie. When we walked in the front door I was so awestruck and told them I'm sure when I die and go to heaven this is what it's going to look like. I look forward to this all year long, it always inspires me and I meet so many FRIENDLY, genuine, creative ladies!

This year was better then ever because I tried something new, my cousin Susan and I joined up with the one and only “Come Junk With Us” Junk Junket and we had an amazing time. Such a FUN group of gals, we had so much in common it was non-stop talk, talk, talk & tons of laughter! After losing my job earlier this year and battling depression I wasn't sure if I should make the trip but I'm sure glad I did. I felt my deep sadness lift that weekend and I'm feeling more hopeful about life then I have in a long time. It was lovely visiting with old blog friends as well as meeting new friends, many who are making a living doing their art - hey that's my dream too :) so it was delightfully inspiring of them to encourage me and send me back home with some hope and a few of my dreams back in tact.

Have a Pretty! day,

ps. I'll post some more pictures tomorrow
