Ivy St. Market & Blogging Friends!

The Ivy St. Market was so much fun! I have lots of pictures to share. I got a new Apple Computer that I am trying to learn as I go. I found that I can have some fun editing pictures with it. This post is using the "antique" effects which goes well with my vintage trailer theme!
My FAVORITE part of the day was when some darling blogger friends I have never met, came to visit! I was thrilled to pieces and it was so surreal! I love these women. They are just as cute as their blogs!
From left to right:
Shelly, a soon~to~be blogger, Patty from Lemon Lane Cottage, Kris from Simplify, me, and Elaine from Sunny Simple Life.
Shelly, Patty and Elaine came together. 
While we were chatting, we heard a voice say "hi I am Kris from Simplify!" Of course we let out a big scream!


Then we heard someone shyly say "I am a lurker and have used lots of your recipes!"
This is sweet Karen and she brought her dear Mother.
I was touched and honored to met them all. xox
My hair sure went flat by the time it started. I started setting up at 5:30am, it was still wet and cold out (38 degrees). So any curls I may have had, were gone...
Here are some pics of my displays.
Now for a few pics of the inside of the trailer!
It was fun watching people coming in and out of the trailer all day taking pictures! The guys loved it as much as the gals.
Daughter Shelli, thank you so much for all your help too! A special day to always remember.
Looking forward to the next Ivy St. Market.

Do you like the vintage antique effect on the pictures?

Oh Mary Jane...your darling trailer and set up outside just made me want to be there and scoop up some delightful things. What a fun fun event. And to have friends there too, well nothing could be better.

I'm such a sap. I have tears in my eyes from this post. Weird I know, but I see how much love has been put into every inch of your darling camper trailer. I see how much fun your friends are having there with each other. Every thing looks so warm and welcoming. Tears of joy I tell ya. Those of us who live elsewhere are a bit awe struck and so wish we could have been there. Thanks for sharing all these photos.

Hi Maryjane,
I'm so disappointed that I missed your show. My hubbie didn't have to work after all, so we went to Big Bear to catch some snow.

Your pictures are fabulous. I love how you processed them...and your trailer, what can I say, it's simply the greatest!!!

XOXOX, Suzanne

Sweet Bee Cottage said...

I just love every stinkin' thing about your booth! The trailer - swoon! The product - drool! I so want to come and see your booth in person! Sadly, California is a very looooooooong state and I am about 300 miles north of you.

Love the sugar scrub recipe too. You are amazing!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Hi! I just found your wonderful blog through Sweet Magnolia's Farm and I love it! Your items are so vintage chic and remind me of many things I was accustomed to as a child. I adore your trailer and its decor - the pink cowgirl fabric is the best! I am now following and looking forward to reading more fun posts and admiring more photos! Thank you for sharing!
