A look back at this year’s Philly Home and Garden Show. It’s held every year at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center at Oaks, and the show never disappoints.

There were gorgeous gardens, presentations, and of course lots of booths and vendors with helpful products for sale. I never come home empty handed. A few years ago I purchased a great steam mop (shown in the photos) and the following year I bought the portable handheld steam cleaner to go with it. This year was my broom year (also shown in the photos). I arrived in need of zero brooms. I purchased four. Four. The salesman was good. I have to say, the brooms are pretty nice too.

Our featured radio contest for the show this year was a shed competition. Our shed theme was the 70’s and we named it Shed Zeppelin. Another highlight this year was finding Girl Scout Cookies for sale. The troop was fundraising to send their Senior Girl Scouts abroad on a trip. I was (of course) happy to help by purchasing a few (dozen) boxes. Anything for the Girl Scouts, right?!

Main Line Rescue / PSPCA Doggie Fashion Show

This year I was especially excited to host the PSPCA and Main Line Rescue Doggie Fashion Show. The dogs really brought it with their fashion forward looks. They flaunted everything from tutus to Flyers jerseys in their collection. While I was on stage and didn’t take any photos of the dogs from the show, the Main Line Rescue website can offer way more than that. There are so many adorable dogs available to adopt. Some of the ‘models’ were MAJOR, MILO, and EVE. Check the MLAR website for their photos, health information and everything you need to know about each individual dog’s personality and forever family needs. Find all of their adoptable dog profiles HERE, and adoptable cats HERE. Then, stop by the beautiful Main Line Rescue Pheonixville location soon to meet your new best friend.

Oh, and save the date! The Main Line Rescue 122th Annual Tails & Trails 5K Run/2K Walk presented by Chewy is coming up on Saturday, June 3, 2023. We’ll be there with BEN FM playing music and cheering on the runners, both hooman and canine.

Trudy’s First Home Show

And of course, the biggest highlight for me was having Trudy at the show with me this year. She loved meeting all the dogs, and even had her caricature done. The finished product is in the photo gallery. She had lots of fun and met many friends.

We’ll let you know the next Philly Home and Garden Show dates as soon as we have them! Looking forward to 2024 already.
