Well Girls ....if you haven't made plans yet better get in gear and start making them now ...last minute plans are always the most fun ..and your going to love the Chateau De fleurs Marketplace ..beginning Tomorrow at 9:00 a.m. ...

Abbey and I made plans to get everything set up yesterday and well never make definite plans ..because you never know when they are going to have to change ..

Tuesday Night we loaded up our trailer planning to spend all wednesday setting up for the markeplace so we could make today (thursday) a nice restful and leisurely day spent on the couch with our feet up ...LOL !!! Well some other Plans were made for us by his truly ..and what a blessing ....!!! Tuesday night while I was backing in the trailer to our driveway and jack knifing it in order to get the 16 feet of length to fit in about 12 feet ...well we heard a loud snap ...and the steering wheel wouldn't move ... Luckily Papa Fred knows his truck stuff and knew immediately that some rod in the power steering pump broke and well the whole pump would need replacing. ....SO ... Wednesday morning he drove yes drove that hard to steer truck to our mechanic who had us all fixed up and back to normal by noon ..However he informed us that we were surely blessed to have had the break down in the driveway and not on the road pulling the trailer ..that the rod was already partially sheared before it broke and it could have caused us a severe accident. Well we fell ever so blessed to have been watched over and grateful that our definite plans were changed so rapidly.

Well yesterday afternoon and today we spent setting up our shop ...and we're so excited with the out come ...

Upon driving up to the Chateau De Fleurs ...Christie and Rita our hosts ...did a splendid roadside display just outside the gates that is ever so welcoming and just perfection for our fall season we're headed into.

Then Lori Martin of Two Wild Roses has dressed Christie's garden to perfection ..such great ideas ...Ones you can incorporate into your own garden ...Stop in and say Hi to Lori and her daughter Jamie tomorrow ..two sweet Gals !!!
Isn't the clothesline just wonderful ..I always love a good clothesline ....

It couldn't have been better to have a clothesline and a clothespin bag to accesorise it ...I made 3 of these clothespin bags made from vintage lace, linens and fabric ..and filled with clothespins ..perfect to use or to display ...

Another ingenious Garden display by Lori Martin .....
