Open house...er...barn at Rubies & Rust this Sunday

Got plans for this weekend?  Come to a wedding!  Good gravy, NO, not mine!  But I'm a bridesmaid.  (Maid?  Ha!  Snort.  I've promised to behave this time, though.)  Who's the bride?  I can't reveal.  Apparently her mama doesn't know yet. (!?)  Who's the groom?  Now, look, just show up and find out for yourself.  We'll feed you, entertain you, and show you the coolest ever place to have a wedding or similar event.

Hey, what happened?  The last time I was at the barn, it was all perfectly fluffed and ready for a wedding.

Oh, I see.  In order to accommodate larger groups, Cindy cleared out the end she was using for storage, consolidated what had to stay and shoved it back twenty feet, then got it all cleaned and primed, so I could paint more faux stone.  Oh, goody.  I had almost recovered from the first eighty feet, which I painted last summer.  She swears this is as far as we're going.

This is why Cindy gets so much more done in a day than anyone else I know.  Does she stop to find a step ladder? Noooo.  Does she wait a second for anyone to come hold the thing, while she runs the screw into the post? Noooo.  Do we love her stubbornness?  Of course.

The heap of stuff is already getting put back in place, or rearranged.  Yes, of course the photo is strategically cropped, so you can't see how much we have left to do.  Come see for yourself, and be amazed by what we get done in the next few days.  Oh, except Cindy has to go officiate two weddings Saturday, so... it always comes together.  She's charmed that way.  And she has friends.

Gary Crosby Construction (garycrosbyconstruction.com) installed the balcony last winter, and since this photo, they've added a huge window, on the other end, to the front of the barn.  The chandeliers have multiplied, anyway, and sparkle all the more, in the sunlight.
Between barn walls and prom photo decor, my friends here in Belle Plaine are keeping me very busy this week.  Check back next Monday for photos from the open house, er, barn, and maybe Thursday, we'll have a cute prom post.   Hope to see you out here on Sunday!
