Arkansas Flower & Garden Show

I love being an Arkansas Women Blogger.  I have learned from these ladies & they are dear to me.

Being a part of this group, I get to meet interesting people & have new experiences I would probably not otherwise have.  So, when they needed people to go to Little Rock to the Arkansas Flower & Garden Show to talk to people about social media, I jumped at the chance.  Here is our super cute booth:

The show exhibited 80 vendors. They had mini gardens on display for competition, they held demonstrations & how-to sessions.  I got to meet television host/designer/gardening & lifestyle expert, P. Allen Smith:

Such an approachable, knowledgeable guy.  A southern gentlemen!

Everything was so inspiring.  There were many displays of beautiful outdoor spaces brought in for our delight & their competition.

I fell in love with these butterflies (or moths?) by Everything Insects.  I would love to have some bright blue ones for my wall!

 

BUTTERFLIES

 

I loved visiting Tammy Sue’s Critters.  She has such a variety of soaps, solid scents & lotions.  They were very reasonably priced too ($3 for these soaps!).  You can purchase them online here.

Isn’t this a relaxing water feature?

So beautiful!  I want to make one of these with my daughter.  Look at this fun water feature they had:

 

SO GARDENS WATER

 

I love the stainless balls & how fun is that to double as a wine bottle holder for your next garden party!

Truth:  I think it would be so cool to have a garden party!  However, I have no garden & a yard the size of a postage stamp that butts up to my neighbor’s house & is filled with Little Tikes & Step2, but a a girl can dream!
