Hi everyone!! We arrived home late last night from our first show. We left early Friday,stopped at Brian’s briefly—he is doing very well!!—and then continued on our way through southern Pa. and then the beautiful West Virginia mountains. South of Elkins we got into the higher hills. I wish the trees were in leaf—but it was still impressive. There were thousands of wild Rhodydendrons in the forests…I’m sure they are beautiful when they all bloom. I must have been a mountain dweller in a previous life because I am always fascinated by them. Starting to see elevation….
more in the distance……………….
here we go—straight down past the guardrail……….eek! At least there ARE guardrails!!
Beautiful and impressive natural wonder Seneca Rocks……..
A painted quilt barn………we also saw very old log buildings and old zigzag slit rail fencing.
We were at 3580 feet elevation—very tight hairpin turns the entire way up the mountains and the same the way down. YIKES!! Hold on!!
Six hours later—setting up at the show………
The show was good for us… I was a bit anxious because I heard some vendors are down for their spring shows…but we were up on each of the two days. YAY! Saturday I was a bit bummed because I lost my camera—I had it in my jacket pocket but when I went to get it, it was gone. I thought it fell out of my pocket into the show parking lot. Sunday,during the show, Al found it had rolled under the van console. We finally arrived home about 11:30 PM. So good to get home!! Today we hurried to get a small load of lumber –Al has already cut and sanded it. Most of what we sold we have back–up stock, but other things I have to hurry and make more of. We sold out of several designs which is nice.
I will try to post more tomorrow about a few more vendors at the show—I need to start painting signs now. I’m also trying to catch up on the posts I missed while we were gone ! Have a great night!!–Jan
