Sunday was the first of the season flea market at the Elkhorn fair grounds.
I went alone because my husband is on his annual golf trip…now I loooove going places with him but for some reason I MADE TRACKS Sunday!
I was in and out of the spaces quickly – I scan the tables and the ground and if nothing peaks my interest on I go to the next one. I made three trips around that area and if you have ever been there you know it’s huge. It also sprinkled the entire time and very humid. My hair was a fuzz ball – heat and humidity turns my hair into CURLS…I dislike it so much. But,
I did find a few items in spite of that ole rain that I’m very pleased with – and some of the fun was seeing 2 friends I hadn’t seen in ages. Again…SCORE!
Nothing happening in my life right now to share – it’s kind of boring for that matter but it gives me the opportunity to get my sewing done for my two orders that I have. And I love working on them because they are my ‘traditional style runners’ – I love sewing just pennies for some reason.
Okay – again I digressed…have you noticed I do that a lot in my posts?
On with my treasures.
First are my wonderful tin items – bought them from the same booth…I couldn’t believe this Pineapple mold was still there as well as the Turkey cutter.
She had $8 on the mold and $5 on the cutter – gave them both to me for $10!!! SCORE!
And this picture just helps to see the actual size of everything. Oh I love it all!!
I also bought some fabric for my church ladies guild for their quilts. There is quite a bit in each bundle so they should be able to add another color and get a complete quilt from it.
I was fortunate to find two pieces that went good together.
Not sure where this one is going – wish I had another cart!!
This trellis had Bittersweet growing on it last year until the rabbits chewed them down to the base…no kidding. Not a single piece of the Bittersweet was left so this year the trellis is at the side of the garage – this would never have been my first choice of plant but it’s all that was available in our area. It’s a Honeysuckle.
Need to get more mulch for this area now.
Made a wonderful cake this past week for Doug to take on his golf trip…Rhubarb cake is a tradition with the guys!!
It’s a buttery moist cake and you can put any kind of fruit in place of the rhubarb but I wouldn’t change it at all.
Hopefully I can get the recipe on my blog later today.
Hope you all are having a great start to your week – it was very warm and humid yesterday and today it is 50 and temps are dropping. Guess those plants will get covered tonight.
