I arrived fifteen minutes before the shop opened, and there was a line of women already patiently waiting down the sidewalk. I convinced the first section to pose for a group shot!
These two women drove down all the way from Kansas City!!!
This shopper had on the most beautiful pin!
Just looking in the windows was enough to take a person's breath away!
When someone saw the key to unlock the front door, the line surged forward!
I was in a real quandry: shop or take photographs! Those of you who know me will understand what a horrible prediciment I was in! I grabbed a shopping basket, and tried to do both. Ultimately, the owner of store decided for me, when she asked that I not take photographs. My fault there...I should have contacted her weeks ago and asked first. I hope I'll be luckier next year! It was obvious that talent, a ton of hard work, and a lot of heart went into making the Vintage Farmhouse Christmas a success.
I decided that for the amount of money I ended up spending, I could've purchased a plane ticket somewhere cool...but I'm happy with my Christmas decorations and ornaments, and can't wait to dress up my house in a festive holiday mood!
A real find in the shop was artist Rebecca DeJohn. Recently featured in the Dallas Morning News, she makes the most incredible wreaths you've ever seen! Her business is called Heaven to Earth, and it is truly some of the most gorgeous work ever.
