MacKenzie-Childs Barn Sale Bound and July Happenings


 A selfie that I submitted on Instagram holding my favorite vase for the "Skip the Line" contest. If you don't play, you can't win! We had a blast meeting the challenges, and seven lucky winners will be announced on Monday. 
 Looking forward to spending time with this fun woman from Austin. It will be Sarah's first barn sale! I bet most of you already know her.
 Looking forward to spending time with my friend Patti and she painted these fun sneakers for the barn sale.  "If it can be painted, it can be painted in Pandora Checks" 

Barn Sale treasures and meeting new friends is the highlight of the MacKenzie-Childs Barn Sale. The best way to describe the barn sale is that you are at a conference with thousands of people who enjoy what you enjoy. It's a happy place, crowded yes, but everyone is polite. Last year I went on the first day {Thursday}, arrived at 2 pm and only waited for one hour. We were checked out by 5:30 pm just in time for dinner at the Aurora Inn. 

 So this happened on the Fourth of July, and it was decided that the annual strawberry pie should be made.  

We whipped up some summer beverages and enjoyed cheese and crackers on the deck on a beautiful evening.

  3. Hi Deb, you, Sarah and Patti all should “skip the line” in my opinion. Your Fourth looks perfect too. Have fun at the barn sale. I wish I could be there but can’t tolerate the heat for long periods. Wish this sale could be any other time, I wouldn’t miss it. Thinking of you gals and all the fun you’ll have. Safe travels, love to all.......
