The weekend hit with the first wave of summer and it was like heaven.  Summer is the besty besty best time of year to me. After a Sunday night barbeque, we decided to go on a family walk. If only I could bottle up our sweet Green Bluff air. It’s dreamy. And after scooping up some extra friends along the way, we headed over to our property to take in the view.

And a dirt clod war.

Welcome back, summer.  I’ve missed you so so much.



Stay-at-home mom, Serena Thompson, dreamed of creating a fun and happy little event to sell her vintage and handmade goods. In 2002, she and some friends held the first event in her neighbor’s barn. The sale became wildly popular and began attracting visitors from across the country and recognition in national magazines. Today the event fills the Spokane County Fairgrounds and features hundreds of creatively and carefully curated spaces filled with vintage and handmade goods. Many describe it as a bucket list event, magical, inspirational, and the best vintage & handmade fair in the country. Serena describes it as the happiest on earth.
