A week ago my friend Vea and I ran off to Carthage MO with our girls and participated in the First Annual Farm Girl Fest at Red Oaks 2.
We had so much fun.
Red Oaks is a vintage farm/village that the artist Lowell Davis has recreated in Carthage MO.
We shared a craft booth together.
Vea sold Rag Rug Looms that her husband Brent built. They are fabulous.
She also had quilts and other crafts.
I have it from a good source that these looms and instructions will be going on sell at Etsy soon. There might even be a featured giveaway here too.
I had my modge podge of crafts. I mostly sold my soap. I also whipped up some of my Zina B dresses and had them displayed there.
I have a few extra left that I just might put in my Etsy Shop. We will see.
Our girls had a fun day as well enjoying the other crafters, listening to great folk music, riding the free hay ride many times, and just playing at the festival.
They hay ride was pretty fun and a great way to see the whole farm.
Here they are discussing their next plan for the day.
Here are some fun shots of the Festival and the fun at Red Oaks 2.
This guy did a wonderful job of making sore every visitor was greeted with a big smile.
This vintage gas station was to die for. I love the colors!
I love this bright little farm house. I love color.
This couple was so welcoming. hee hee
This is the kind of tree that I think I could grow in my yard. I don't think the goats could kill this one.
I understand that Mr Davis rents and even sells some of these homes. This one is so lovely.
I will have to give this a try. I have always wanted a garden gate covered with vines.
I think that the Byrd house also needs one of these in the yard. What do you think?
I got to use Vea's Camera thanks to Brent. I forgot and left mine home of course. They still had lovely flowers growing in the gardens there.
I can't wait for the Second Annual Farm Girl Fest in Carthage MO.
