Better late than never...

...don't you agree? Sorry friends - I promised pictures "BEFORE" our annual Fall Harvest Gathering and it just didn't happen. A week of working till 3:00 am every morning - well, I don't think my brain or my fingers could have put two sentences together - correctly anyway. But, here are some pics of the store and the yard - BEFORE everyone got there. And all I can say is THANK YOU - THANK YOU - THANK YOU!!!! It was our biggest and best fall harvest celebration in the twelve years since we have been open. Even though it rained the night before and one of the tents fell overnight - the sun came out and it was beautiful till it rained again late on Saturday - but that didn't stop them. People came from everywhere! We were so blessed and are extremely grateful to everyone who shopped with us, came and ate with us, to my family and friends that did so much to help me! Oh my - how blessed I am to have such wonderful people in my life! That's all I've got to say about that or I'll just cry!
Jus' simple table decorations...
I love my pretty lil' brown jars that were given to me...Thanks Jewel!
Ornamental Kale and zinnias and gourds...

my lil' goat wagon - a gift from my better half...

...some tables before everything was quite ready...

...pretty pears...

...rusty buckets...

...I love gourds...

...and pumpkins...
...yummy, yummy, yum-yum soup mixes from Wind and Willow...

...happy scarecrows...

...and a lil' blue and orange...

...love that orange hydrangea wreath...

...well, y'all know me - I had to get some orange polka-dot pitchers...

...big, BIG "Welcome" pumpkin....

...some green and brown...

...more pumpkin pics - oh my - those price tags look tacky - sorry 'bout that...

...more metal...

...pumpkins of all kinds...

...and pumpkin flags...

Now, honestly - just about everything you see in these pictures sold on Saturday. But never fear - I'm gonna get busy - I've already got some new furniture pieces and I'm on the hunt for more goodies.
There was so much more but once everybody gets here - there is no picture taking - but we had a beautiful day in so many ways - thanks to everyone who made it that way!
Have a happy week!
Cathy

Hey Lisa - hope you see this - we are located in Central Ky - Greensburg to be exact - e-mail me if you need more info. I'd love to have you all come by for a visit. But please holler at me first- I'm a "one-gal show" and sometimes I have to leave for things. I wouldn't want to miss you!

Beverly said...

Thanks for sharing with us. I wish I could have been there. I love all the fall colors and oh...those pumpkins. I am so ready for fall and you just fueled that yearning.
I always wonder how much of that you made yourself. You are a talented busy lady. So happy for you it was a profitable day.

Kim said...

Ok, if I lived closer I would be at your place to much. I love it! To bad I don't live closer, to far of a drive from OK.
Thanks enjoyed the inspiration,
Kim in OK

I would love to have been able to go to this and see all your fabulous stuff! I'm a little too far though living down here in GA. I can see you have been really busy. So glad y'all had such a great turnout!

ChristineReed said...

WOW! I stumbled on your site yesterday looking for ideas for my kitchen and boy did I find them!! Your place is a little treasure! I just love everything and you are so crafty!!! I'm currently working on a "blue" theme as well and I love the way you mixed the red in! Where is your farm at? Do you have an online store by any chance?

Becca said...

Hi Cathy, WOW, I want to come to your beautiful store! I wish you weren't so far away. I could get into some "serious" trouble if I saw all your goodies for sale in person. It all looks so festive ... thanks for sharing, Becca
