Purple Strawberry @ the Frogtown Hollow Bluegrass Jam

My first vendor event was April 9th and 10th. This was such a learning experience. The money didn't come flowing in like I was expecting not because I am greedy or the like but only because when I go to any outdoor event I normally buy something other than food and my tickets so I thought others would also.
Here are some pictures of my booth display... My logo that the sweet hubby traced on a piece of poplar and then painted it in for me.

My fabric postcards and flatware roll-ups.

The whole booth which includes fabric postcards, flatware roll-ups, t-shirt bags and turned bowls by my Daddy.

Keith and I enjoying some quiet time before the music started.

A Spring Weekend & GIVEAWAY

This weekend has been really a GREAT weekend for us. We started it off by having my Mom and Aunt Margaret over Friday night and then also Saturday morning (my Mom helped with some sewing/ironing that I will tell about later). Saturday morning for me was working inside with all the windows open enjoying God's air, for Keith it was redoing the mailbox and fixing our shower drain. After a great lunch outside my Mom left I could not bring myself to go back in the house. I watched Keith cut, weed eat, edge the grass and blow off the sidewalk, driveway and patio. I watched the pigs sleep and lay around, the chickens lay a few eggs that were still wet with the protective coating to protect them from absorbing the odors of the other foods in the fridge and watch my outside cat Coco lay under the bird feeder. The bird feeder has been there for about two months and I have never seen her near it but Saturday she was sleeping, giving herself a bath under it and staring at it. But no birdies lives were taken this weekend.
Then after my dear husband put all the lawn equipment back on his trailer I got him to put a clothesline up for us. Before he even said he would do it I had a load of laundry in the washer waiting to be dried. It went up and maybe 10 minutes later the clothes went up to. Sadly I didn't have enough clothes pins, so I did the larger items and left the other stuff in the dryer until I had enough to dry.

Do you guys know that a normal load in my front loader dryer take 100 minutes and sometimes longer to dry but outside in God's sun and air it took a whooping 35 minutes and I, for who knows why put them in the dryer for 15 minutes when I brought them in. I think I did this to fluff them up and get some of the lint off that didn't come off in the wash.

Today, Sunday I did 4 loads of clothes from 4:30pm to 7'ish. I can't believe it, I could not have even done that many in the house with this modern so called hi-tech stuff we get sucked into buying.
So not only did I get A LOT of clothes washed and dried before dinner but I saved energy, I saved money and best of all I took advantage of the earth the way God designed it to be used.

So because it was such a great weekend for me and that I loved taking advantage of the earth the way it is suppose to be used I am giving away a:

9 foot retractable clothesline (can be used indoors or outside)
100 clothes pins
Spray Bottle of Homemade Wrinkle Releaser

My husband suggested that everyone leave a comment of your favorite laundry (preferable clothesline) experience.

I will pick a winner on Sunday, April 11th. So leave a comment and tell a friend or two.
