A couple times a year, Beth participates at the Old Summit Country Antique Show in Lees Summit. She and I used to do shows together and I sure miss it sometimes. So, to get my fix of junk stylin', I help her set up her wares.
She always has pretty stuff to work with. Displays almost create themselves, she has coordinated her inventory so well.
Unless I start picking through it, that is. The ribbon flowers? I snagged 'em.
While unpacking boxes, we had a visitor.
I did say COUNTRY SHOW, right?
Well, even though that is the name of the event, it doesn't mean that you are guaranteed a chance to snuggle farm animals.
Queenie was only 4 days old, too little to be left at home while her adopted family set up their own space at the show. She was pretty dang adorable and I was tempted to go pig shopping on my way home.
I've heard they are good pets.
But after more than a year and a half, we are still adjusting to owning a large dog. The mix with Honey the golden retriever with three goofy, little dorkies, has not been easy.
After considering just how much a piglet could complicate the already precarious union of those four dogs, I came to my senses. Plus, my studio already smells bad enough. Ugh- I think there is a dead mouse in the wall. It has been too awful to go in there to get any work done.
Oh, but wasn't Queenie a cutey????
