Our Yard Sale

Let me be totally honest here...I was kind of bummed. It was supposed to rain so pretty much everyone backed out one by one.

But Kristina from The French Canary and I stuck it out.
And guess what? There wasn't a rain cloud in the sky all day.

Kristina brought her daughter and she played with my daughter most of the day. 

Her set up was so pretty! I just slopped mine out there without much thought because I was so exhausted. 
But the girls had fun playing, people came out, the sun shined and the chickens tried to go home with people as usual. It was a great day!

 Kristina's is the tent with all the shabby Frenchy pretties.
Did you see the chicken checking herself out in the mirror?
 See I told you she was all prepared and set up nicely! Look at all this fun stuff!
and Pattie The Shabby Chick made it out to the sale.

I'm glad we stuck it out despite the fact that they were originally calling for 70% chance of rain. 

I think next year we will only do the spring sale though. Anyone on board for that one?? I'm going to start planning ummm NOW for it so we have plenty of vendors in advance.
