Springtime at 1824 Walker Farmhouse

It's been a whirlwind around here.  I saw this posted today on Facebook "Summer vacation is our reward for surviving May."  I think it was pertaining to teachers, but it's relatable for all of us. I can't wait to lose the schedules, slow down, and recharge. We've been busy....and it seems like so is everyone else! 
It has taken me two weeks to post these pictures from the spring show at 1824 Walker Farmhouse. This was their 20th year in business and I am not surprised.  When you visit David and Audrey, you feel like you are on a mini-vacation.  Their shop and property is a calming little place for your soul, and they are the most kind, caring, and generous people you will ever meet.  It was a beautiful day filled with the most beautiful people.  

A little note....I was hurriedly taking these pictures while people were filling in the buildings behind me.  Plus it was really sunny, so my pictures are not the best. Not that I am complaining about all that gorgeous sunshine!!
 Sweet Henry was there to greet everyone 
Open for business!
  
Denise's lovely area in the shop was filled with treasures and all of the pretty signs that she creates.
   ....I did not see that geranium sign back there until just now or it would have been mine.
JoLee always has such beautiful antiques...it's so hard to control myself here!  
I'm still thinking about this pansy painting.
Melinda's displays are just lovely.  She had these pretty terra cotta bird houses, 
 
 and smaller ones that hang. I am in love with mine.
 Janice contributes to my spring fever every year with her gorgeous arrangements.
I already had a pussy willow wreath from a few years ago so....
I bought this one for my front door.
Bobbette visited us from Bell Buckle, TN.  She gave a lovely presentation on a women's role on the farm in the 1800's.  She made pretty aprons, and brought the best soap made from her own goats.
She made me the sweetest little gift too. I will treasure it always. 
  
I also received this pretty flower pot (in my favorite shade of blue) from a kind, faraway friend who lives in Wisconsin. She's a beautiful lady inside and out.  Her and her husband made a special side trip just for the show.  Thank you Mary & Kent!
In my hast to take pictures, I forgot to take a few of my own things.  Here are a couple that I posted earlier on Facebook that came to the show.

I am so happy with everything from that day.  We had so much fun!!  I sold tons but still have a few things left.  I will be adding them to an update that I am working on now.  

Thanks to everyone who came, and to all of you too for reading this long post!
xoxo Jenn
