I'm quite tired, but want to show just a few more photos tonight. I will post more later..

Opening Day..WOW

Wow! We're all so exhausted! The barn was bedlum up until closing today..Yeh!! Fist I must show you Matilda in her bathing suit by the "water"...

These are a few of the talented gals in the barn
First is Colleen. She joined us a few months ago and has done such a wonderful job!!
Next is sweet Alexa..She finds the most fantastic things! Third is Sandra. She has such an amazing style!!

This is a black secretary I found...

This is the entrance to my area. I did black, white and aqua with a sea theme.

The barn is open June 26, 27, 28 from 10:a.m. until 5:00 p.m. It's an amazing event! Hope you enjoy the pictures! I'll be posting so many more pictures in the next day or so. It's our Sea to Shining Sea event. There is so much old Americana, Cottage, Victorian, Tattered Elegance, Sea Side Cottage, Primitive..

First, I want to thank so many people for visiting my blog, commenting and/ or emailing me! Such encouragement...thank you! Unfortunately, I STILL have camera issues! I ordered a new battery charger, but it won't be here for at least a week...I WEEK! Yikes! The show is this Friday. So, my generous son send me his camera...guess what, no USB cord. WHAT! I'm gonna blow both these cameras up, I tell ya! So, now I am going to have my husband bring home the office camera...I hope there are no issues with this one. I'm gonna fire myself if that the case!!
At any rate, Matilda's is looking absolutely fabulous! Most of the gals are almost finished and are left with the ever tedious chore of cleaning and pricing, ugh. Bare with me, and I promise pictures soooon!

Making Progress at the Barn

Well! Finally, I am making some progress in the Barn for our next show at Matildas Mouse. Today I was even able to find the floor! Unfortunately, I'm gonna tease you all a little more....I can't take any pictures, cause I can't find my camera charger (that's why I cleaned the floor, hoping to find the charger...not!) Any whoo, I will try to take a few sneaky peekys in the next day or so. I must say the Barn is already looking so amazing! Lots and lots of wonderful old old Americana, sea side, cottage, tattered elegance, with a twist of French. Can't wait to show you!
