Petticoats on the Prairie Under the Big Top Event

Classes went on into Friday also for the Paper Cowgirl, but then the ladies got to pre-view the Petticoats on the Prairie vendor show Friday evening. It was fabulous! Several vendors I recognized from Canton!

Below are photos from the event and I have to mention my friend Monica Potts with Sweetly Recycled . She had a booth, and I didn't see her till I was leaving. So I didn't get any photos of her booth, but she said it was a fabulous show for her. So I am very happy for her. Check out the website. She has some great products!

Also, I talk to Jennifer Babcock and didn't get any photos of her booth either. What was I thinking?!! Everything was displayed so cutely. Check out her blog here . She also does some great art events. There is one coming up in April I believe.

 Under the Big Top was the theme for the show. This tent was the entrance.

 This booth is Daisy Smiles. A cute lady who makes stamped metal jewelry. She is at Canton and I remembered seeing her because of her booth decor. Great old doors! Her photography of her products looks good too.

Can't miss the Girls Gone Junkin' from Canton either!! .

This is Linda J. and Diane Johannsen's booth. Linda J. makes mohair animals and needle felted items. She has a studio in McKinney called Wildflower Studios, I hope to teach at soon. Here is her info I took a class from her on needle felting years ago. We made bears. Very cute! Diane sculpts figures and sometimes her and Linda will work together on a piece. Here is Linda's info

 This is Lisa Grant's booth. Email is . Her art is called Mixed Media Collage with Poetry. She lives in Dripping Springs Texas. What an interesting name for a town. LOL I really loved the big hanging dresses!

This booth is another one I frequent at Canton. They make some wonderful angels out of recycled pieces. I have one of their pieces and have gave several to friends as gifts. Company is called Marigold Trading Company owned by Shelly and Brad Southhall from Grandbury, Texas. . They make birds and other items as well. Fun stuff! Check them out next time your in Canton.

I had one of these as a kid

This booth was called Texas Trash. They had vintage handmade jewelry & accessories. These dresses they had out front of their booth were great1

There were a few other trailers there but I did not get a chance to look inside them. They were probably decked out all cool too though.
