the Modern Prairie Girl at the Peddlers/French Flea Market

Such a fun experience!!!!
I was so excited and honored when Suzie asked me if I'd be interested in being a part of her annual Peddler's Market. Of course I said yes right away and then wondered how in the world I was going to sew all that I needed to when I'd be gone for a week on a family vacation before the market got here! A week full of late nights and early mornings let me sew up all that I needed to and I was blessed with a successful market and a wonderful time!
I shared the booth with my sweet friend, Nancy. Sadly I didn't think to get a picture with her.
(She's crazy talented and super sweet! She made me wish I had a baby with all
her cute baby blankets and clothes!!! No joke.) 
My awesome and adorable cousins, Faith & Hannah came out and helped me run the booth.
I couldn't have done it without them!!!!  Thanks girls!!!!
The Peddlers/French Flea Market is full of amazing, talented artists.
Come out next year and be apart of it!!!
Thanks again, Suzie & Nancy!

My Daddy battled ALS for two years before Jesus took him home.
It wasn't until I learned that Daddy's last words here were "Home" that that word became
a whole new meaning for me.
Because I know he wasn't thinking this home. Here. He wasn't thinking the pain, the loss, the crying. He was thinking of Home. His Heavenly home, where the pain would be gone, the race won, the crown worn, his Jesus, my Jesus, waiting for him.
That's Home.
So that's when I came up with this idea.
A reminder to hang in my home here, that this isn't my home.
A reminder of the battle my Daddy fought. And won.
