Owl Invitation

Had to share this clever invitation. Will be going to this barn show this week-end and can't wait.  Trish is one of the most creative women, I have ever met. To me, she is the "Queen of DIY".  She has a beautiful 200 year-old stone barn complete with an amazing sound system. At last year's barn show, there was a band playing soft jazz, while Trish served trays of brioche grilled cheese sandwiches and prosecco. The smell of fresh apple cider wafted through the barn while guys, out at the pond, practiced their fly-fishing, and kids roasted marshmellows at the stone fire pit. Inside the barn, the walls were graced with 19th C. Bucks County quilts. In one room there was an apple pie contest.  We were able to sample Trish's Dad's home-made peach ice cream, which at 94, he made himself.  In another room, Kady was making fascinators for girls of all ages while a local ventnor was letting us sample his latest cabernet. Little angels trimmed in German glitter, were circling overhead, waiting to go home with someone and adorn their Christmas tree.  And if we were lucky, some of us were able to purchase some of Trish's velvet pumpkins or her linen napkin sets, stockings, and tissue cases.
The little owl above is one-of-a kind. Trish sent each of us different fabric owls. My friend Kate, received a turquoise blue brocade owl. The owl pictured, is made of green wool and his little wings are attached with brads.
