First annual rural antiques and garden show

This wonderful sale is being held today and tomorrow (Saturday) in Mt. Vernon, Ohio off of Wells Road. Well worth the trip. These are my purchases. I love these bus rolls ( is that what they are called). It isn't handmade but I love the saying. I am so inspired after seeing a post by The Lettered Cottage this week to redo my bedroom. I want to use this sign there. I loved this little spaniel planter, so cute.
Also, I found another large blue mason jar. Okay, now I need to stop buying them. The little giraffees were to remind me of the fun our family had feeding the giraffes at the zoo in Colorado..........OKAY ON WITH THE SHOW...........THE VERY BEST PART WAS THIS OLD TINY FARMHOUSE. I think I want to live there.

This was the Milkhouse Cafe where they were serving drinks and food. These chairs remind me of my Grandmothers porch. I loved sitting and rocking in these chairs on her porch at night. My house and my grandparents house were next door to each other. I loved running back and forth.
And yes, I always ran. Sometimes I ran in my bare feet getting cedar stickers in my feet.

I love this mantel, bench and planter.
After downsizing two years ago, I don't need anything big. Sometimes I wish I could start all over with furniture and etc. but can't do that.

This is a picture of a display of White Cottage. They have a new store in downtown
Newark. Great finds. The next picture is a display for The Urban Farmhouse. They also have a store in Hebron. Great things there as well.

Ooops another shot of the Milkhouse.
No I didn't eat there. I bet there was some real goodies though.

Sorry about the spacing thing going isn't how I post it. It just seems to happen.
Alot happening on Google
Blog Spots this week. Very flustrating.

This is the side of the little farmhouse. The next picture is from the front of the house.

Not sure what this is called.....maybe a summer porch. There is a stream that runs right along the side of this. The plantings were beautiful. Wish we were able to tour inside. There were also other more modern houses/barns on the property.

Okay, that's it folks. I am sure this show will grow from year to year. There were lots of people there at 10:00 a.m. So glad I made the trip.

Hi Debby, Wow I ADORE those chairs!! They bring back memories of my grandma too. :o) Broken blogger? I'm not sure what you mean or what comments are lost. Certainly, there's only one, but I' haven't made visits this week due to Grandchildren 45 minutes!! Yippee! Been getting ready. Funny, I did get that broken blogger message several times Thursday. Did I get messages and just can't see them?
