A Most Wonderful Show

 The "Angels In The Barn" Vendor show was last night and it was a kick!  The home where this is taking place is really breathtaking, and as my hubby and I were walking up the incline to the barn, two adorable Bassett hounds ran down to greet us with wagging tails and proceeded to guide us up the path.

  We made our way up the grade and it was like stepping into Disneyland! All lit up, with a crowd of people, all vendors in the show.

  There were tables set with all kinds of sweetness. From cheesecake and brownies, homemade snowflake shaped cookies and hot apple cider. They even had a margarita machine set up that produced a constant supply of blended bliss.

  There was a huge bonfire burning and you could see the entire valley from the top of this hill. I didn't want to leave!

  The lady on the right is the very gracious Joan. This is her home and barn and she coordinates this show every year!

  There was a slight chill in the air but it was still comfortable. Inside the barn was a bustle of vendors admiring everyones else's work. There were beautiful velvet sewn bags, sparkling jewelry, hand painted ceramics, rhinestone encrusted motorcycle helmets, fine art paintings, knit and crocheted items and the list goes on and on.

  Keep in mind, this was just the vendor show. The actual event doesn't even start till today. It run's through this Sunday and if you are anywhere near the Simi Valley area, this is a "Must Go To" event. Believe me, you won't be disappointed.

  And the cool part..........I have already sold several of my paintings, hooray! I will be up there again on Saturday and even though Joan says this will be her last year, I am hoping she will continue this tradition here in Simi.
