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.



In 2002, I was dreaming of creating a fun and happy little event to sell my vintage and handmade goods. In 2002, I held my first event in my neighbor's barn along with a handful of friends. The sale became wildly popular and began attracting visitors from across the country and recognition in national magazines. Today The Farm Chicks Vintage & Handmade Fair fills the Spokane County Fairgrounds and features hundreds of creatively and carefully curated spaces packed with vintage and handmade goods. Many describe it as a bucket list event, magical, inspirational, and the best event of its kind in the USA. I describe it as the best weekend of the year!
