Wayyyyyyyyyyy back on the 18th September as I was preparing to leave Shakopee MN for the 'Fields' of Texas, I promised to come back & catch you up on ALL the Junk Bonanza excitement....Well I have been TARDY to say the least in my blogging commitments so here I am as PROMISED so long ago to 'fill in the gaps'....!
After spending the previous day at Junk Bonanza (from 8 am - 5pm....!!!), Margo & I set out for the Bachman's Idea House....To say this place ROCKS is an understatement FOR SURE....I really must admit, my expectations were a little on the naive side & I was TOTALLY blown away by the creativity evident in each & every room....And that's JUST the inside of the house....The outside has just as MUCH goin' on....!!
Ki Nassauer has been involved with Bachman's for the past year now in a collaborative partnership re how to incorporate 'junk' into home decor....Her AWESOME ideas are FABULOUSLY showcased in the beautiful home situated a short distance from the main building....! If you see somethin' in the Ideas House that takes your fancy, chances are the item will be available for sale over in the main building....!
What a FREAKIN' FANTASTIC idea....If ONLY we had somethin' like this here 'Down Under'.... ** sigh **....Each season sees a total 'makeover' as Ki introduces new design ideas to the House.... ** DOUBLE sigh **....
While we were there we had the GOOD FORTUNE to run into these GORGEOUS LADIES....The FAB JunkFest girls - Missy (SweetMelissa), Cassie, Lynette, Andrea, and Diane from Barn Chics....After we finished shoppin' up a storm, we enjoyed a relaxing lunch in Bachman's Garden Bistro where we talked up a storm 'bout ALL things junk related....A GOOD TIME was had by all.... :o) !!
|I STOLE this pic from the ever INSPIRING Margo....!|
|This pic was snitched from JunkFest....!|
|And this one was 'borrowed' from JunkFest too....!|
Now the rest of the pics are mine.... :o) !! And I'm not going to blab on 'cause I know you're itchin' to look at the pics....PLEASE make sure to enlarge them so you DON'T miss out on any of the GOLORIOUS details....!!
The one STANDOUT for me with the Bachman's Idea House was the total lack of FUSSINESS....Each & EVERY item 'worked' perfectly....EVERYTHING belonged....It was in my mind, a place where I could retire at the end of a weary day from 'the pesky day job', in total & utter peace....!
The visit to Bachman's took place on Friday 17th September & just when I thought things couldn't POSSIBLY get any better, the evening entertainment was still to come....!
Cheers for now,
PS: I'm counting down my posts to the BIG 100....Don't forget the GORGEOUS Gina from Vintage Junk In My Trunk & I will be hosting a F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S giveaway to celebrate our 100'ths TOGETHER....It's gonna be BIG....!!
