Art-in-the-Rough - behind the scenes prep

After Dillon and i spent the night in Marblehead, Massachusetts (those pictures to come later), we continued our drive onto Charleston, Maine. We arrived to a busy group of friends (Taryn, Scott, Robin, Shaun, Emma, Rachel and Stan). they were hard at work getting things in place for the upcoming event. 

Dillon and i dove right in and asked for jobs and we all set about getting stuff done. it was hot, but not hard work; lots of decorating, merchandising, stringing lights, etc.

inside Taryn's house, we are starting to prep goodie bags. couldn't resist snapping a photo of her auction lamp. (she's lucky i didn't put it in my bag when i was leaving!)

prepping the goodie bags. how awesome are these vintage potatoe sacks Taryn got at an auction?

pins that Taryn made for attendees- each one was different

       that's all for now! stay tune for more photos!


  1. Those tents are way cool -- like a row of little houses. Looking forward to more photos. Now I get why it's called art in the rough!

  2. I love Maine (last time I was there was 3 years ago). These are great photos. I'm looking forward to your Marblehead photos (that's where my nana lived when I was little).

  3. Kecia,
