Parade time!

When I think of the 4th of July I think of parades, popsicle sticky kids, dozens of flags, and of course, fireworks!
So let the parade begin! We're ready with our scooter and tricycle leading the celebrations this weekend!

Happy Independence Day everyone! Enjoy gathering with friends and family, barbecuing, and spending time with family and friends. And let's fire off a few firesworks for all of those in service fighting for our Freedom!

God Bless America,
Colette, Rachel

It's a sure sign that summer is in full swing when you drive by a firework stand (that has sat dormant for 11 months), and their are people there frantically unpacking boxes!

Are you ready? Independance day is one of those holidays that always sneaks up on me. I don't know why, it's on the same day every year! Here at Station 8 we are ready, thanks to our lovely vendor Cheryl who has brought her love of all holidays to us here at the store. She calls it My Maddness, and this month she has brought us a great selection of all things patriotic! We're loving it!

All the best,

Rachel & Colette

Camping anyone?

We've done it! We are set up for all of the summertime fun: camping hiking, fishing, river rafting....
So now we just need Mother Nature to cooperate and give us a bit of summer sun!
Let's all do the "sun Dance" and perhaps we will be blessed with some warm rays.
Till then, a girl can always shop!!
Happy summer

So sad, no photos came through

So I must be having severe computer and photo issues if NONE of my photos came through for viewing! Sadness!

I will try try again, so keep watching!

Summertime blues and aquas and...

I've got the summertime blues...
aquas, teals and robins egg blues that is!
We are emptying the trailer as fast as we can go, bringing out all of our new goodies from the Farm Chicks Show!

Take a peek at what we displayed last night! We worked through the downpours, ignoring the mud and squealed with glee as Rachel put out the scooter, the old wooden swimming pool ladder and all my collection of chippy peeely aqua furniture!!

Hope you enjoy the view, and more to come!!
Living in aqua bliss,

Farm Chicks, my favorites!

So, I am still not a great blogger, and my photos are blurry, and I don't have many photos because my batteries went low, but my heart is in blogging, and I know I will get better.

My feelings for the show are this: I am in awe of my fellow vendors.

Thank you for inspiring me to stretch beyond what I think I can do.
Thank you, Serena, for having the Best of the best at your show!
Thank you, to all of you who spent some time visiting with me, connecting, and motivating me to come back home to my shop, and to achieve more!
Thank you Ki, Heather, Catherine, Pat and all of the VIP guests who spent time talking with me and making me feel I can achieve my dreams!

I am so revved up, renewed and refreshed, I can't wait until I get to put all of my Farm Chicks purchases in my shop, creating amazing vignettes with all this great stuff I bought at the show, from all of you!!

I'm doing my Happy Dance right now for the joy I brought home with me, having connected with all of you great people!!

Enjoy the few photos I have, of some very lovely people,
and know that my smile cannot get any bigger!
(or the aqua flower on my head, any larger!!)
All the best,
