It was a great day. I get to share Mother's Day with my son who turned 10 today. I couldn't ask for a better way to celebrate the day. We went to one of my favorite places for breakfast called Bair's Bistro in Steilacoom. I love this place because it is a landmark building in Washington’s oldest town. The Bair Drug & Hardware Store is an 1895 building, full of old stuff to include the original post office and soda fountain.
Mark and the boys waiting for a table...
Austin had a hot chocolate that looked like dessert
Then, we went to The Perennial Gardener in Olympia,
so I could pick out a hanging basket for our front porch
Michele is one of our vendors at the Girlfriends Market. She was so busy and I can see why.....
she has the most beautiful flower baskets, plants, herbs and veggies
My name is Shelly, I am a wife and a mother of two boys, ages 11 and 14. I love all things vintage.. My good friend Sharon and I decided to start something new seven years ago....and that's how the Girlfriends Holiday Market got started......
and I'm Sharon, also married and a mom to four "kids". We have two boys and two girls and a new daughter-in-law who warms my heart when she calls me mom. The kids are 29, 27, 25, 23, and 19!! We also added two lab puppies, 3 months old.
With this crew I've learned the art of multi-tasking, putting on really good birthday parties, and most recently a wedding. Like Shelly, I love old stuff too. The Girlfriends Market is my most favorite event so far!
