Following an unexpected 10 days spent nursing a severe and very untimely back injury, I left the house yesterday…
Prince Charming & I visited Bottom View Farm, Home of Sweet Tea & Shopping’s Spring Market
As We Entered The Barn, My Eyes Filled With Tears!
Mason Jar Fixtures – Grape Vine Chandeliers – Rafters & Supports Wrapped In Twinkling Lights – Freshly Installed Raw Wood Walls!!!
I felt certain I had died and gone to Barn Sale Heaven!
As I stood looking at the interior of this big red barn, sitting proudly on this 400 acre farm,
I was overwhelmed with thankfulness!
I am so humbled by the fans, friends and countless others who have shown their support of Sweet Tea & Shopping!
We are 3 weeks away from Spring Market Weekend, I can scarcely believe that this time next month, Spring Market will be behind us and I will be planning Fall Frenzy.
It was less than one month ago, I received the news that Spring Market was at a crossroad – Relocate or Cancel – Scary Times!
Before the final round of chaos sets in, I want to take a minute and say thank you to all who have supported, encouraged, hugged on, loved on, cared and prayed for me.
I even (maybe especially) want to thank those who have provided a swift kick when I needed it!
You are the ones who whispered in my ear,
“You ARE Sweet Tea & Shopping, Don’t Let Them Take It From You!”
Well, I’m NOT Sweet Tea & Shopping…
The Incredible Artists, Designers, Crafters and Others Who Load Their Vehicles, Drive The Miles To The Venue, Unload and Miraculously Prepare The Most Incredible Of Spaces With Their Treasures – Only To Repeat The Entire Process, In Reverse, 48 Hours Later…
THEY ARE SWEET TEA & SHOPPING – THEY ARE MY HEART!
As George Jones sang, “The Race Is On…”
I can see the finish line and it looks like a fantastic Spring Market, to me!
Hope you are planning on joining us there!
