Our yearly tradition is to go pumpkin pickin at Von Thuns Farm in NJ...it's a great family place with tons of fun fall activities and yummy homemade treats.  In business since 1913.

They had pony rides..the lil girls all went on.  This is Buggy on her very 1st pony ride....she didn't shed a tear.  I may have a lil farmgirl on my hands.

This is the coolest thing.... shooting mini pumpkins out of a cannon!  

This is what I chose this year to pick....I always do a pumpkin and this just looked like it needed to come home with me.   Everyone kept asking, Hey where did you get that...is that a pear?  LOL...I told them it was in the gourd section of the patch.

Duck racing....you know I was checking out the galvanized piece the whole time...lol

This was the one casualty of the day......Maya was stung on the chin by a bee.   They have a bee farm and homemade honey so I guess it was to bee (lol) expected.  She wasn't happy and screamed, thankfully she is allergic and we stayed and enjoyed the rest of the day.

Me and my family....blessed to have them.   Finally a picture with all of us in it...including me!

Anyone interested in visiting this family working farm...you can find them HERE

Lucky 7 Design will now offer full Wedding/Event Services at the shop............

My Vintage Prop Rental Collection will be available and on display as well as floral designs, invitations, signs, favors, makeup and photography.  All of these areas will of course offer my love of vintage and green design to those who chose it.

Im excited to be collaborating with some amazing artists and excited to grow our businesses and share some unique ideas.    I opened my 1st business in 1999 which was an Event Planning/Party Favor Business called Your Favor It Co.  (lol..gotta love the name).    I loved working with brides and couples making their dream day possible.   Kids parties were always fun and since Im now the mom of 5 Im quite the expert... I think.  Im combining my love of vintage/recycled decor and event styling into one happy home at 76 Main Street, Woodbridge, NJ

I have closed off the back of the shop to the customers and have been setting up themed vignettes all week, Im happy with the way things are progressing but wish I could make it happen faster.

Check back here or on my Facebook Page to see the progress Sneak Peeks.
