Two Days Till Petticoats on Prairie and Picnic on the Prairie

This Rodeo Queen, when she's not dreaming of finding treasures and precious junk, will usually have her nose in a book. I came across this wonderful line in Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese - "Wasn't that the definition of home? Not where you are from, but where you are wanted?" It is an honor and a true privilege to be friends with a group of women who make one feel wanted. And not only that, we really WANT you to come see us at Petticoats on the Prairie. We hope it will feel a little bit like home to you. Plus, you might find a treasure just like your grandma used to have! Or if your grandma was into bling, you'll probably find that, too!

Moving-in Day

Today the Rodeo Queens begin moving into the barn at Black Locust Farms. Mulberry Hill promises to bring a ton of furniture. Leeann says she is covered in paint, and we can't wait to see what she is bringing.

Flutter's husband is loading a pick-up as soon as he can tear himself away from the tv and has digested that wonderful breakfast that Janie cooked for him this morning.

What's in Store has been working on a DUCK! We understand that it is an unbelievably amazing creation. Can't wait to see what else Mary and Alan bring to the farm.

The Sentimental Swan has been creating the most incredible roller skates that you will ever see. The first pair was so dirty they had to be sand blasted to get clean. I actually saw the skates in their original state of dirtiness. Cecilia has turned them into something beautiful and funky.

The Dragonfly is just waiting to amaze us with their creativity and gorgeous bling. Cherry says she is covered in glitter and we all know that there's no such thing as too much glitter. Cherry and her amazing daughter Andrea will blow our minds with their wonderful displays and great items.

Then our infamous Rodeo Queen with her wonderful mane of red hair has been and will continue to be our little engine that could. Cat gets things done! Plus she is a superb photographer. She is the wind beneath our wings.

Every group of Rodeo queens needs a Dana. She finds time in her busy schedule to lend her advice. She is ready to work the crowds on the opening day of Petticoats.

Connie and Marsha are our behind the scenes Queens. They help with decorations and buttons and all-around moral support. We are forever grateful to them.

Six days till Petticoats on the Prairie officially opens. We'll see you at the farm in Ira!
