The Most Wonderful Show of The Year!
Well, for me it is! It has been a month now since we met up for this yearly event. Shop owners and Artisans come from all over the US meet up in Valley Forge for a few days of buying, selling, ooohs, ahhs and catching up! We meet new friends and embrace old. This is my fourth time doing this show and it is like "old home week".
At first I was sad to learn that Cathy from The Cheswick Company would not be showing, but she did arrive to help a friend. We were all so happy to see her! She is pictured with me at the top. Not only is her work beautiful and distinctive, but Cathy herself is truly one of my favorite friends here. The next picture is of Millie and Robert Huckabay, owners of American Country and considered in my heart to be the closest of family. Their log cabin is featured in Jill Peterson's book, The Settlement. It is a "must have", for those with a heart for Early American homes and furnishings. Jill was at the show, but I was unable to meet her as she was ill. It is my hope to travel to Georgia and visit with Millie and Robert in the future.
Finally there are a couple of pictures of my Halloween set along with some new wee folk making their first appearance. It was goode to visit and I am already anticipating next year!
