Getting back to normal...

Well! After an extremely long, dusty, WINDY and amazing weekend at the Vintage Market Days event, I am finally starting to feel like I'm getting back to normal. 

Yes, it took me Monday and most of Tuesday to get there.

SUV loaded up with goodies!
The event was ca-razy. We had some record-setting, hurricane-type winds sweeping through the plains the entire time. It was ridiculous. The event is outdoors and this time around, we decided to be out on the grass instead of on the big porch. We wanted more space and thought it would be fun. HA! On Thursday, we started setting up at 10 a.m., and by 2 p.m. our tent had bitten the dust. I literally felt like Moses holding my arms up to part the Red Sea as I stood there for I don't know how long, trying to keep that stupid tent from blowing over. I asked the girls running the whole thing if they had any space on the porch or inside the huge central tent or just somewhere else where we might get some cover. Thank goodness they moved a few things around and got us in the big tent! We were so relieved, even though we had to tear down, haul our stuff (on foot!) and set up all.over.again. But it was SO worth it!

I really wish I had taken more pictures during the weekend, but it was so windy and dusty, we were literally trying to wipe and dust the gross-ness off of everything the entire time. I didn't want to get my camera all dirty and I'm bummed I didn't get any pictures of my mom, Sarah and I. But here are a few of the booth that I took on Saturday:

We weren't really sure if Sunday was going to happen or not, because there was rain in the forecast for most of Sunday morning. A number of the vendors packed up on Saturday night, but I'm so glad we decided to stay. We protected our stuff really well Saturday night and we were all really surprised to see how many people came out after the rain stopped! By that time a cold front had moved in, so we were guzzling coffee to stay warm, but it was much better than that crazy wind!

It was an unforgettable experience, to say the least. :)

OH! And I started a Facebook page for Lilac Row, so come like our page! I realize I should have done this ages ago, and probably instead of creating the Lilac Row blog, but oh well! Hopefully it will be easier for me to post pictures of projects I'm working on and other fun happenings. Hope to see you there!
