me. oh. my. I love it all.
I am only slightly prejudice...
just a small amount.

junk bonanza ~ Vogue premiere - part two

LOVE the orange

Thank you all for being patient with me to get these pictures done.
The week after JB kicks my butt.
I feel as if I am so far behind...

a week away from home...
a week away from the Barn...
a week away from my office (real job)...
a week away from the computer...

things pile up and I feel so tired after this event.
Anyway, thanks for waiting and the post begins... 

long shot...
I'm standing by one of the main walkways as you come up to the booth.
The large ferns and the vine on the trellis we drug in from my back yard.... Mr. Miller was not at all happy about that decision... you can see the zebra rug....
too fun

the guys loved the old molds
the ladies loved the mini glove forms

I loved my moss chair...
she didn't sell so its back to the Barn for her

the wooden street sign was fun and we got lots of comments.
It came from my house .... we were taking bids... but overall, I decided I needed to take it back home with me.

I found this great sceen that I thought would make a fun wall partition if only I could find some funky wall paper... the wallpaper I found was $350 a roll.... no good, so I made my own....

isn't this metal cabinet too die for!!!

didn't sell.... back to the barn

The walls were fun and the orange life preserver rings sold quickly.  Everyone loved the pop of orange as much as I did.

these three gals sold immediately...

Wilma Bird made her first showing at the JB

My friend, artist, Laurie Bouta, showcased her wonderful canvases at this years show. I sell her work at the Barn and it flew out the doors here.

the greeting cards also flew out the doors...

(a couple more wholesale orders came in so that is always fun.)

and last but not least ... this years Vogue shirts we had a lot of repeat customers track us down just to find this years shirt.

I designed two different looks and had them printed on tanks, v-neck tees, and long sleeve thermals.  I also did different colors this year, which was nice because some people wanted one of each.


this one is a white tank top
peace. love. vogue.

this years vintage vogue shown on black thermal
(same print available on black tank and black v-neck tee)

this is my grey on grey
peace. love. vogue.
available long sleeve thermal in this color and a white/ grey tank top

different look at the v-neck and my boot evidently....
did I mention I didn't take time to edit

That's it for me for 2011 JB

now on to other things... like cleaning the house.... and buying some groceries.

peace. love. vogue.

Layer it on. Change it up.

Time for a refresh. Have you ever looked at an area in your house and thought I am done looking at that mess.   Or maybe it's just time...
