I'm quite impressed with the care that people put into hand making pretty things for our gathering!
There will be chockful goodie bags as well as drawing prizes. I plan on having enough individual gifts so that everyone will win one. Maybe two...
We have an old shed in our yard that has had a number of incarnations, but started off originally as a chicken coop. Its been a club house for Jr. High aged boys, a wood working shop, an antique store, a peacock pen, storage unit, and now back to its roots, its going to house hens again.
Being a pack rat pays off sometimes. We had a pile of old chain link panels out along the back of the property and were able to piece them together to make the chicken run. All we had to buy were a few fasteners. We even had a roll or two of chicken wire stashed away in the shed.
This is the back of the building, its divided in two, and this side will still be storage. Not exactly air tight...but its good enough to toss lawn chairs into for the winter.
I'll leave you with some pictures of a few newbies in the Boutique
