Let's Play A Game

It seems lately I am playing the CATCH UP game more often than not. 
If it's not planning for the upcoming Farm Chicks Junk Junket in June, it's laundry, dishes, finding the dining room table under all the mail, trying to get taxes done (which by they way, they aren't), figuring out what to do with my overstock of buttermilk from our milk deliveries, or trying to remember what I'm suppose to be doing and where I'm suppose to be at on any given day. 

So today..............
As I consume Peeps, cookies and Diet Coke I'll be dragging you with me in my game of CATCH UP
So let's catch up on blogging................

Last week Tiffany at Shabby Scraps hosted a weekend crafting retreat that I have heard through the grapevine was FABULOUS!
You should go visit her (and scroll through a weeks worth of posts because she's NOT behind) and take a look at her pictures and read about it.

So Friday before all the guest were to arrive at Tiffany's, Donna and I met up with Lisa and Isabel for a little junkin and luncheon in Sumner.
It was so much fun to shop and visit with them for a little while. 
Thank you Lisa and Isabel for asking us to come meet you.  It was fun and we have to do it more often!

Go check out Lisa and Isabel's blogs also for great stories and pictures about their weekend in Washington.

One of our favorite places in Sumner

On the way home from Sunmer Donna and I swung into Kirkland to the new of home of Haley's Cottage for a grand opening party.

Have you been there yet?  It's down on the waterfront on Parkplace next to Cactus Resturant.
Lunch and Haley's sounds like the perfect plan to me!

It's a beautiful store! 
If you haven't been in there yet, go see Cindy and her fabulous new space.
You will love it!

After all that running around on Firday,  I had to stay home on Saturday to at least get PJ's skivvies washed.

BUT THEN....................
On Sunday...

I was honored to have been able to go help Deb and Bob Kennedy of Retreat Style.

They were having a private opening at their fabulous little farm on Camano Island
They will be holding sales here throughout the spring and summer starting May 8th.

They have truly outdone themselves!  Everything was just beautiful
Lots of beautiful custom furniture pieces

Now you know my pictures aren't that great but if you go over to
Deb's blog  and again.............scroll through a weeks worth of posts (because she isn't behind) you will find some fabulous pictures.

No detail was missed!

After leaving the Petite Retreat Sale, PJ and I headed to my parents house for an early Easter dinner and egg hunting.
Since PJ and I had planned to be gone over Easter, we thought this would be a good day to do it and Princess Spoiled Brat was available for egg hunting.

This was a special egg that Princess Spoiled Brat made for PJ
Let's not tell him that the egg and his head look alot alike.
Just sayin.....................

All the eggs were collected and accounted for
then it was time to let the deviled egg makin begin!
It's not a party until the deviled eggs come out!

Then last week it was a week of still trying to play catch up and getting ready to go over to
Pacific Beach for Easter.

Lots going on with Come Junk With Us

Did you know that there are only 25 days left to buy tickets for the Junk Junket?
That's right!! April 30th is the cut off date for ticket sales.

Thank you Timi, for your glowing review of Petite Retreat! We had a blast and cannot thank you & Jay {and everyone else} for coming to help us out. We'll be singin' the praises of CJWU down at the Remnants of the Past show in California, you can bet that and WIN, baby!

Boy, Timi, when you post, you post! I feel like I've been missing out on a lot of good times, not to mention good shopping! I do think I get to pop in to see Amy, Kris or whoever's working at Today's Country Store this w/e, as I've got to go to Enumclaw for work. I was sad to miss your show, and Bob and Deb's. Both looked amazing in all the pictures. xx

Oh how I envy you Timi.
While I sit at a worktable in the bakery all day, every day, you get to run around and check out all these adorable shops you have. Maybe next year I'll have enough of a cushion in the savings to actually go to the Farm Chicks Junket. And then I'll stay a few extra days to visit and check out Seattle.
Until then I'll be happy just reading your blog.
Good luck with Farm Chicks!!
