The Ruffles & Rust Ball...



While my old buddies and I were busy getting things ready for the Harvest Wedding , some of my new friends from the vintage world were working on a special event of their own.

RUFFLES & RUST 
{A Vintage Market to Inspire}
22 & 23 October 2010


I figured that you wouldn't mind seeing a few pictures.

 Laurie, and Ilsa of This Old Country House. Later in the evening, Ilsa was crowned "Queen of the Ball!"

Congratulations, Ilsa!


{I think she was kickin' some fantastic cowgirl boots under that gorgeous skirt!}

A Girl Named Timi was the mastermind behind the two-day event.  Dressing in "High Society" attire for Friday night's ball was optional.







I always get a kick out of visiting with Amy & Kris from Today's Country Store.

These li'l slips are from their dreamy booth.


Just down the way there were offerings for chillier days.


And boots!



I happened upon this cute couple who traveled to the show with Miss Twig.


I even bumped into Mr. T


He was very nice.

But did I get to see my new blog bud, herself....NO!  And I hear that she was one of the big winners of the night for her mad dress-up skills.

Congratulations, Miss Twig!

The gals from Grandiflora drove down for the ball too.  My mom and I had loads of fun visiting with them during the Farm Chicks Show.


The lovely lady from Lynden holding the big ol' flower won best sash!  
{All were encouraged to wear pageant sashes representing their blogs and/or shops!}

She used Scrabble letters for her name...
and won that incredible crown!!!

How cool is she!  I actually chased her down for the photo!

: )

{I'll be quiet now...at let you enjoy a few more scenes from Ruffles & Rust.}














Oooh...these would be great for organizing craft supplies!







This gal said that people just couldn't stop commenting on her beautiful "new" window.






John Bob Cool Junk!




Miss Patricia, aka Tippy Stockton 


Ahhh....


Is there anything dreamier than glittery snowmen...


...and this yummy sofa piled high with pillows?

What a lovely show!

Thank you so much to Timi & her amazing friends!!!

ps  I inadvertently photographed this li'l gal's feet...twice...upon first arriving at the ball.  She was visiting with Isabel, aka Miss Maison Douce.

Can you guess who she is?


Well, when last I saw her at the ball, she was happily nestled across the way amongst one of Auntie Joy's displays.


I hear tell that she was sportin' her prom dress!

: )

pps  Please let me know if you can fill in the blanks on some of my photos...I'd love to give proper credit to the vendors!

Thank you!!!

Little Ladies in Waiting...


"My mom said that we have to sit here," said my bff Jen's li'l flower girl, Emma, right after the wedding.


"How long do we have to sit here?"


I know that having to wait around can be a real drag.


That's why it's nice to have a twin cousin...


...who has your back.


More Harvest Wedding posts coming soon! 


: )

  Jenny found the flower girl dresses on ebay, then the groom's grandma sewed li'l burnt orange sashes to match his tie!

A Harvest Wedding Sneak Peek!


Hi!

I hope you had a beautiful weekend!

My friends & I certainly did...in fact, the last five weeks have been a bit of a whirlwind.  "The ants," as the sweet bride said, have been pretty busy...workin' their little hearts out to get one cute couple to the altar.  I hope to post more on the wedding soon, but I think we're all in need of some shut-eye.  

.............

In the meantime,

Here's a wee glimpse of the bride.



Can you see her?  

This is the moment that a new leaf was added to my dear friends' family tree.

........................................

Congratulations, Melody & Dan!!!

God Bless You!

: )

Please stay tuned for more scenes...from the Harvest Wedding!

Oops....


In a moment, if you are really REALLY quiet...you might hear my friend Jenny gasp!


Did you hear her?

You see, 

Jenny is pretty passionate about photography.  I just point and shoot.  This picture started out sort of blurry...so I played around with it...added some, (hold on, Jenny) GRAIN and made it worse.

I kinda like it.

Don't you think it's a little impressionistic?

Of course, Jenny will probably say, 

"It's more like...impressionist~icky!"


But the story makes me happy.  So, it's all good.  

I took that there picture...oh, did you want to see it again?

This is Alice's truck with the trailer full o' treasures.

I took this picture whilst on a road trip to Jenny's with my junkin' buddy, Alice.  This road, however, leads to her sister Muriel's house, (No, not Jenny's sister.  Muriel is Alice's sister.  Arielle is Jenny's sister : ) where we were fixin' to say, "Hello!" and snatch some goodies from her garden...for the wedding.

The wedding that is comin' up this weekend!!!

............................................


I'm heading back to Jenny's tomorrow...to help her wrap up whatever little projects need doin.'
(When you use a single quote...does is still go OUTSIDE of the dot?  It looks kinda funny.)


I'm also going to Jenny's to take more pictures.


Hopefully, they won't turn out icky.



What are YOU doing this weekend?  

(If you think I'm a little nerdy tonight...just wait 'til tomorrow.  There is a HUGE bag of "Oops" Jelly Bellys at Jenny's house with MY name on it!!!)

: )

Julie M.

ps  Oops!  I guess they are called Jelly Belly Flops!  Thank you, Jenny!  My brain will probably still call them "Oops," though.  I cannot, after all,  stop referring to Great Harvest Bread as "The Yummy Bread Store!"  : )

After my last li'l post about my friends' upcoming wedding...some of you said that I have to show you more "behind the scenes action!"


So...here you go!


Here's my friend Jenny's hubby, Casey, the groom's uncle, unloading some seating from his truck...right down to the last straw.


Yup.


It's all very exciting.

...................................................................................


But that's not how he rolls everyday...


This is much more like it!
