Camp Tales on the River....

Well it's that time again,,,, for 'Camp Tales around the Camp Fire...

Once again we gathered around & took over the 'Bowl-&-Pitcher' campgrounds at Riverside State Park in Spokane, Washington..... for our annual Farm Chicks weekend.

Good morning Spokane River, what a beautiful morning.... but in a few hours, 26 ladies will be heading out to hit yard sales, Junktiquing & the Farm Chicks show at the Spokane Fairgrounds.

These wee lil trailers, most are vintage, some are good old girls glammed up and some sweet new ones also dolled up.

These boots were made for Shoppin' and that's just what they'll do, one of these days these boots will shop all over town with you!

The 3 Amigas! (l to r) Juli, Grace & Faye

Oh sure, my table is tidy now, but by tomorrow you won't be able to see the decoupaged photos...with all the junk I'll have sitting on it! lol!

'The Gnome Home" with her newly painted door & chalk board...the sweet door cutain was made from a re-purposed vintage pillowcase from Juli. Thanx Juli!

I always bring & display my little mini aprons either on or around my trailer...

' Chilaxing' by the fire, good food, good wine & good friends!

Ya gotta Luv Glamping with a fabulous group of Gal pals....

Julie telling us the difference about wines, tannins and wine regions..... and to think, I thought all you did was squish a few grapes into a bottle, add a little sugar & let it ferment...and wala! Wine!

Gotta luv a good old fashioned Girlie gab fest!

Heather (behind the camera) catching me yacking with Karen,,,not sure why I am being so animated,,,could I have been telling Karen a 'Fish Tale' about the Big One that got!?!

Juli always has fresh flowers to decorate our picnic tables... what a great way to use old tins too!
