Wow!! What an amazing weekend….and exhausting:) We had our first ever occasional sale in the big red barn and it was a great success!! Thank you so much for everyone who came to support us. It was so fun to see your faces walk through the door. And the new people that we got to meet, from blog followers to neighbors, to facebook fans:) We feel truly blessed. And a huge shout out to all of my college girls that traveled a long way to come and make it super special!!! Thanks ladies!!!!! Love you:) :)
Also a HUGE shout out to my mom who was up every morning as 6 making fresh baked cookies and cleaning my house so people could walk through it and not have it look like a tornado:) Love you mom!!!
I just want to show you some pictures I snapped quickly Thursday morning before the craziness. Sarah snapped some that will look a lot better that I’ll show later, but I thought some of you might be curious what Whimsy Green turned out to be…especially my far and away blog fans:)
First I’ll show you the crew that put this together. Here is myself with 2 of my sisters, Mel and Sonia. We are hoping to get our other sister in on a sale too:)
I know…hard to tell we are related:)
My mom and my friend Sarah weren’t in the picture…but helped out immensely!! Mom’s baking cookies/housekeeping/watching kids/getting ready (that’s all) and Sarah’s behind the camera:)
My favorite area of the shop was the gallery wall. I love gallery walls and I think this one turned out pretty amazing with the wood background!
and one more..
The pictures aren’t the best quality, but it was a gloomy, dreary, rainy day. We actually got over 4 inches of rain on Thursday. The Lord took care of us and kept us dry in the barn:)
The bright kids room:)
and then a little shabby chic area..
and the cozy bedroom
and I loved the view from behind the checkout desk…
I feel like a broken record again, but one last big shout out to my hubby…who completely renovated our house, worked on a guest house, and helped me finish off a barn so I could pursue my dream….all within 11 months! You’re the best!! Love you lots!!!
