The Burlap Harlot Show

Busy getting ready for this fun show on Saturday!

I'll really try hard to remember to take pictures of my booth!

This is the start of a very busy 5 weeks ahead-5 shows in 5 weeks!

You know it's already bad when I had to stop by McDonald's to get the large $1.00 Dr. Pepper before work this morning!  Looks like a few more 2 Dr. Peppers' a day ahead!

Halloween Comes Early To The Booth!

Mr. Smith, my Mom, & I had fun decorating the booth for Halloween last night.

I took pictures today-it was so dark when we finished!

A friend gave me several bags full of old frames that were perfect to use with those fun headless Pottery Barn pictures!
This is the first thing you see as you are climbing the stairs!

Couldn't quite get a good picture of all the sharp tools that I have hanging from the ghost lampshades hanging from the ceiling.

Reading all those murder mystery books have worn off.  
How about a trombone case to carry a body in? 

Galvanized gas can makes a great vase for branches and a crow!

Doesn't everything look better under glass?

Picked up some silhouettes at Dollar Tree the other day which were perfect to scatter around the booth.

Created this fun picture.
Doesn't she look like a nice lady?

Until you get on her bad side!

I brought in a couple of carloads of new stuff to sell and to decorate with.

Picked up the candelabras at Dollar Tree Store too.

Of course, everyone needs a scale to measure that skull they have lying around!

Happy Decorating!

Our Trip to Maine

Mr. Smith's job involves traveling
....lots of traveling. 

So we used all of his frequent flyer miles and decided to go to the farthest place we could...Maine.

It just so happens that we also have family there too.

4 plane changes...all day really early morning.....we arrived.

Took the kids out of school, got their homework packed to do on the plane rides, and they spent their time watching movies.

Part 2 of our flight out there put us on a newer plane with TVs in the back of each headrest. 
 We could all watch a different movie! 
 Or as Ms. Drama Queen stated "Mom could watch an inappropriate movie while we watched an appropriate movie." 
I watched "Something borrowed" - yep not appropriate for a 12 and 10 year old!

Portland, Maine was so green....and so much cooler! 
 I was so happy to get a reprieve for a week from the heat. 
 Shivering never felt so good!

Downtown Portland

So bright and early the next morning, we set off towards Boston. 

To be continued.....
