These are some photo's that I took from the Na-Da Farm Sale last May. I was living back in Dixon,Il at the time.I lived there for many years. Which is not far from Ann Marie's Farm in Creston. For me I planned on going for weeks and planned to go so I took the time and went to this FABULOUS sale.It was so good to be able to go to such a FANTASTIC sale.I still think about how everything was in place and how it looked that evening. The candles that flickered throughout and the BEAUTIFUL colors of delicious treats.I can't forget about the glass of wine that I drank while in the other hand I got to have a taste of a delicious chocolate while browsing around all over the barn and outside as well too. Ok, I had a glass or 3.It really fit the mood. This was FUN !!I didn't want to miss any details..It was CLASSY too.Oh... every where I turned I saw such INSPIRATION of some really WONDERFUL hand-made things.The woman that came were in awwws and oh's as they too saw the things that were displayed so BEAUTIFULLY.
This barn looked like something that should be out of a book.The kind that you would be PLEASED to pick up every time and NEVER get tired of what your eyes could see.I still love looking back at all of my photos and yes I still say "Oh my,I just LOVE all the things that I got to see there".I was seeing familiar faces.They were the woman that I saw everyday over morning coffee with.The faces of my favorite blogs.They didn't know it at the time.(Even though I had plenty of wine,he he).I got shy . So I wandered quietly through the crowd of them. Next time maybe I wont be so shy???The woman that put all their TALENT to make such WONDERFUL things and even all the time to pull it all together are ABSOLUTELY FAB.I probably would have been snacking on a few treats or more if I was helping out,he he.They made you feel very welcomed there. To think that this event will even have MORE TALENTED woman there is killing me ....I have to admit I am SADLY going to MISS this.. My friends that know me well know this. I'm am telling them all to go.I even posted this event on my facebook page .This will be a FANTASTIC event trust me Im am POSITIVE on this one.Go if you can it is well WORTH it.Next year for sure I plan on coming back to town and going to it.
To my sister Kimberly and Lauren(from Cracker Jax. A fun shop in Dekalb).Enjoy ...Think about me back here in AZ., girls !!Maybe I should have got hooked up with Beth Quinn he he ??Hey she is from out here.She will be displaying her jewelery there.Along with TALENTED woman.The list is long.Can you see that it is killing me (sniff).I am looking forward to seeing everyone's pic's that they put out there.
