It Is Here....

I have been waiting for this day since we found out we were selected as a vendor for Junk Bonanza. Yes I said JUNK BONANZA!! I have shopped at this for quite a few years and am so excited to be a a part of it.

So Tuesday afternoon five of us Mama's loaded up our vans and headed down to Shakopee to get set up. It reminded me of when you are watching a movie and the player walks down the hallway to the field and as he gets to the opening he stops and takes a look around- a look like I have made it and can't wait to get out there. That is the way I felt. We were in the game and ready to play with the big dogs.

Tomorrow I get to work there- no matter what I will get through the 10 inches of snow and make it down there. Might have to plow through the snow drifts in the driveway too.  I hope folks will come out to see us. I can't wait to see all the vendors, all the rusty, metal goodness that fills the building and spend the day with the rest of the gals from Mama's Happy.

I'll be sure to take a bunch of pics so keep an eye out for that. Here is a couple of pics from us setting up.

Through Snow, Sleet and Rain the Mama's Are Still There.....

Okay I woke up at 5:00am  this morning to rain, then freezing rain and by 6am it was snowing and by 10am it snowed about 4 inches.  These are the days I'm glad I only have to drive 3 miles to work.   It has been a crazy spring here in Minnesota and hoping the green grass and sunshine will be coming soon.

Well if you can't get it outside bring it in and that is just what we did at Mama's Happy this month. For those of you that don't know Mama's is an occasional shop here in Independence, Minnesota.  There are 9 Mama's that let our creativness shine each month for one weekend. It is a whirl wind let me tell you but each month these ladies amaze me with their talent. I love being a part of this lil' group of ladies. This month is especially busy since we have the sale this week and then next week we have Junk Bonanza. I can't believe I am going to be selling goodies at JUNK BONANZA how cool is that!! I am so excited to see all the rust, metal, and repurposeness in all it's glory.

Here are some pics of our little bit of spring at the shop this month.......

 
Our Mama Cyndee has been busy making her awesome pillows!!
 
 
 
Love the dresser with the baskets.

 
I had so much fun setting up my space this month. Not sure how we got that bike up there.
 
 
 
Aren't those parlor chairs the cutest!!

 
Picket fence, wash tubs, old rakes says spring.

 
Thank heavens for turf grass!!
 
So if you are in the Minneapolis area stop by. We are open Friday-Saturday, 10-6 and Sunday 12-5. We'd love to have you stop by and share a bit of our spring.
