Saturday Doug and I went to Trimborn Farm to a craft show and also we had a golf outing in the afternoon – made for a full day.
Trimborn is a gorgeous historic farm in a beautiful setting – we never miss this show and we also get to meet a blogging friend when we go there. You know Becky from http://primitivesnstitchin.blogspot.com/ – I see her every time we go there and she has the most adorable things she makes…I could not resist again…smiles!!!
She has the sweetest smile and personality!!!
See that Tan Pumpkin…it’s mine! I bought three things from her and can’t wait to display them. The cloth Pumpkin and the Orange one on the box hook – it’s wool felt and filled with Sweet Annie
And this adorable Pumpkin stick…I love his nose made from an old square nail
Then over at another booth I found a lady who makes some awesome Prims – she does not have a website or a blog so I talked with her for quite a long time. She just must start something to sell her products as she has so many wonderful things. I’m supposed to e-mail her and get her some information so I had better do that quickly.
This is the Pumpkin nodder I got from her.
Further on down I found a booth that sold hand made baskets and goodness sake she is right from near me and I have never heard of her before. The prices were good as well but wouldn’t you know I chose one of the highest price ones – mainly because of the size and I don’t have one like it.
Love my Gathering Basket. You remember how long my trencher is…this is about as long as it is.
This is what I saw approaching the booth…just had to have it!
Here’s a little peek at Trimborn (it’s in Milwaukee by the way)
I doubt these pictures will give the perspective of actually seeing these clouds for real but very often they form over Lake Michigan…Saturday they were awesome. Only wish I could have captured them better. We were probably 40 miles from the lake at this point…almost could see them shortly from leaving home.
Had to share the winners of the golf outing…
Dan who owns the golf club we were at, a friend?, our son Dan, our son Darren were the winning team.
They don’t do things up ‘perfect’ as far as the winners – they made it a tad silly. These jackets have been given to wear for the photo for 40 years now…our aunts/parents started this golf outing and it has continued on down to the younger generation now.
Thanks for hanging in there with me on this little show and tell post.
Oh yes and I want to remind everyone of MY CHALLENGE – you can find it here again. http://mycolonialhome.blogspot.com/2012/08/a-post-challenge-that-will-have-winner.html
There are 36 who took the challenge so far – this has been so much fun reading how you all got your blog name and when you started. I even found a few new blogs to follow. So please…ANYONE…come on over and take the challenge.
There’s a prize(s) in it for the winner.
Here’s just a tease of at least one of the winnings
Now who wouldn’t want to join in and get a chance to have this Penny Rug (and more?)
I’ve chatted with Margie from Hungry Hook Primitives…she’s doing well…just in lots of pain. She is hoping she doesn’t loose followers because she hasn’t posted – but she sure is trying to get one formatted to post…I assured her that we all understand and are saying lots of prayers.
Blessings to all.
