I originally had other plans for that day, but thanks to my bestest friend Katie, who is understanding of my addition to anything primitive, let me reschedule our plans together! So thanks to her and thanks to my mom who was willing to go with me (although it didn't take much to convince my mom) I was able to attending this weekends show! And I am so happy I did!
I was so excited to get the chance to meet all the wonder primitive vendors and bloggers that I have followed on the web .
I knew Eva Ramsey from Pine Patch Primitives (she has the most wonderful candles http://www.pinepatchprimitives.com/), Linda Rudman from Behind My Red Door http://www.behindmyreddoor.com/ and A Primitive Place Magazine http://aprimitiveplacemagazine.blogspot.com/, Hometown Antiques http://www.hometownantiqueswb.com/, and Winterberry Primitives would all be there! So many of my favorite bloggers and vendors oh I could barely contain my excitement!!
We got there around 10:30 and just didn't know where to begin. I knew I should look around before I bought anything, but it was just so hard ! But first things first, I did come with a mission, other then to meet my online idols, I was on a mission to get my beeskep house.
A few weeks ago online I came across a beeskep house that was made by Dirk Dishop http://www.picturetrail.com/earlyhomesteadwoodshop. I just LOVED it and knew I had to have it. So I emailed Dirk and he said he could ship it but he would be coming to the Walker Homestead Show and if I was going would put one aside for me. So knowing I'd be coming I send yes put it aside for me!
When we got to the show the first thing I wanted to do was go and get my beeskep house. Well I gotthe house and I got a beeskep and I got one of his pumpkins as well. These are the neatest things. They are made of cement or something like it and shaped into beeskeps and pumpkins. I am so glad he set the bee house aside for me because they were selling like crazy along with everything else he had.
And I am thrilled that he'll be back in the Fall with more pumpkins. My one lonely pumpkin needs a few friends!
