Farmchicks Super Sister Weekend!



What a super sister weekend with my one and only sibling!  We met almost half way in Spokane Washington from Philipsburg Montana and the Tri Cities.  My sister was a much better photo journaler of our weekend, so be sure to check out Knitting Mania for the full meal deal.   Here is a little sneak peek from my perspective.

 Actually now that I think of it, she took a bunch of photo's of the nursery Northland Rosarium while I was shopping my brains out, and I took a bunch of pictures of The Farmchicks, while she was shopping her brains out. lol
 What is a Farmchick you say?  Well it is a group of women across the US having a ball collecting junk for this show...well not quite =)  Check out the official website here. 

 Sorry for my blurry photo's I was using an Iphone in quick reconnaissance mode, since this place was loaded to the max with ladies.  We were three hours into it when I just had a shut down moment.  I told sis to keep shopping and she could meet me at the food court with my feet up for a spell...oh did I mention we did an Art Festival first thing in the morning before we hit this event.  We did not stop for food or water but carried snacks in our bags.
 So when I got to the food court to take my little break I found out to my utter dismay...thinking I was done for the day...there was another whole huge building we never even knew was tucked back in there.


 I was fascinated by this extremely whimsical re purposed umbrella...wondering to my self how it would hold up in the wind.

While on this weekend journey to Mecca we stayed at The Davenport which I am sure Chris will fill you in on the details.  Quite the treat for both of us.  Best part of it all...chatting it up with sissy lulu!
Back at the Davenport I believe this was the Isabella room.

Oh my! Now I "know" people who have attended this event. I watch the blog all year long and never dream that I'll know anyone who will give the inside scoop. So glad that you two had a great getaway of your own. Sisters can talk until they drop. Shop, too, I guess.

You girls just had way too much fun! Blurry or not...I love all the photos. Now I know what I've been missing. Pondside and I have talked of driving out for the Farmchicks show...even had it on the calendar last year...but things have never worked out for us. Not yet!

It appears you and your sis had a great time together. Blurry or not we get the idea of all the delightfulness we saw. I too wonder about that umbrella but it looks whimsically cute!
