First and foremost, I want to thank our wonderful blogging friends for coming from near and far to the Harvest At The Mill on Saturday. It was so great to see old friends and meet new ones. My only regret was that I didn't have much time to visit with anyone. I did get to see Karen (My Colonial Home), Janet (Old Crow Primitives), Pam (Baskets and Prims), Janice (Prims By The Water), Earlene (Primitive Passion Decorating), Kelly (Scarecrow Cabin), Teresa (Homestead Deppen), Lauren (Rugs and Pugs), Bobbie (The Evening Stitcher), Ann (Hole In The Basket Primitives), Lori (Homespun Prims)and many facebook buddies. It was wonderful that some stuck around for our gathering at Bittersweet Cafe after the show. Hope you're ready to set back and share our show!
Some of our wonderful dealers! Diana Darnell (Kentucky) and Dan Smith (Ohio).
Bobbie and Dave Beauchamp - The Evening Stitcher.
Gloria Oviatt's booth (Michigan).

And last, but by far not least, my friend Marie Faren - Country Primitives (Ohio).
Our Holly Hills Primitives rug hookers graciously took care of our Shop and Drop booth. What a hit! They are already talking about how they are decorating their booth for next year!
Dave Myus did an excellent job with our mountain music and announcements. Dave and Teresa were our absolute rocks throughout this whole planning process.
A very special thank you to Mike Gross, of course my hubby Dick, our Gannon, Randy Beauman, Tony Surre and Blade for working so hard as porters throughout the show. Now let's get on to a few fun shots around the grounds.
And the shop was bustling too!
Oh my goodness, I almost forgot four of our other dealers!!! Teresa Kogut and her fabulous artwork, Linda Harris from Willow Hollow Antiques, Kristen and John Siewicki from Maggie's Primitives and Annette Bergerson from Primitives Floorcloths. We were so lucky to have such wonderful dealers with us and my e-mails and facebook have gone crazy with people that want on board for next years. By the way, mark your calendars for September 6, 2014 for our next Harvest At The Mill. Hope to see even more blog buddies there next year! It's time for this old gal to hit the hay. Until next time...
