"Ok, here's my guess...after following
 you on your blog, FB and Pinterest, and seeing
 what a great job you do with styling,
 I wouldn't be surprised if you would venture
 into event planning. After seeing the photos of
 your family wedding last Fall, and seeing
 how well you source, create and style items, 
you'd be perfect for that kind of work!



Here Comes The “Shop The Shed!
 With a twist.

shop the shed

Whether you’re looking for our signature 
Shop The Shed wares,
 or actually shopping for a shed
 to host your occasion… 

Indiana barn weddings

it IS with great joy and anticipation that we proudly announce:

 the family homestead for three generations

Sept 7, 2013

 "Grey Barn Farm Occasions"
 Indiana’s newest all-in-one event occasion venue.

with that venue imagine if you will ...

the four bedroom farmhouse.
 circa 1890 barn.
timber and tin party shed.
home cooking.
themed wedding choices.
etc, etc, etc.

a lot more more details will follow,
 but I wanted to be the first to tell you,
 loyal followers, to save the date.
Hook up your vintage camper,
 or borrow your daddy’s pick-up truck.
  Grab your girlfriends, and grandma’s
and let's get shopping.

For heaven’s sake if you know anybody getting married
 in 2014 and beyond, 

we highly recommend letting them tag along …

Oh what Joy! Not only am I happy that my intuition served me well, but am happy for your decision on this logical endeavor! You are a natural for this! I play at work with 2 of my sisters (Panoply), & would love to make a road trip of your shed event! And, you've inspired me for my own daughter's wedding planned for this Oct. Best wishes to the Frey sisters!

Joy Joy Joy!!!!! This is fabulous!! I am excited for you. You do everything with such style so this is going to be great. I still have my youngest daughter that is not married yet... Hmmmm... now I will have a place in mind for when that day comes. I love that cottage rent by the day or week sign in your pictures is that going to be for sale. I love that and it would look so good in my guest cottage guest room. This is such a beautiful new journey for you. Congrats.

What a fun adventure...sounds exciting...Look forward to reading about all the fun.

Bliss said...

Why am I not surprised? Event planning seems like a pretty good extension of what you do. After my daughter got married, here, overlooking the lake, I wanted to do the same thing. But I don't have a barn!
