Rural Society Fall Sale

What a beautiful day.
A little cool but lots of sunshine and wind. It was perfect. I absolutely love this farm. I keep telling my husband I want one of these trucks. I think he wants me to keep my bug so I won't be able to bring more things home with me......at least the big stuff. But last week I bought a chair and it fit. This week I bought an old ladder. I know he is going to say something about how I got it in my car. Well, the nice man loading up his van helped me. I got it in but it was too close to me. So he helped me move it over and it was just fine. Hubby will also say that it just looks like the one on our old gym set. Well kinda, but this baby is well worn. I plan to paint it something bold. I will show it to you in an upcoming post.



Now this is the house I want to live in. Isn't it such a great little cottage. I posted pictures of this in the Spring. I am so in love with this.





And guess who I ran into......Patti of Crystal Rose Cottage and Pam of Frippery. Pam was a vendor. I bought a sweet little vintage ceramic turkey from her.
Now if you wonder why I have strange looks on my face in some of the following pictures, it is because their hubby's were taking the pictures. They were pretty funny. I think Pam was blushing in this one.







Now was does Patti look so cute and why do I look really worried.......hmmmmm.



The rest are some random shots. I will post the vendor that stood out amongst the rest and some of her unusual but fun items.


It sure was fun. I had planned on going the day before but as I said the weather and being a
Nanny took over. I was thrilled that Sue from Sullivan and Murphy and her sweet husband drove through my town on their way home. One of my girlies and I met them for lunch. I then showed them Enjoy Co. a unique store in Granville.


So this was a fun week-end. Fall and friends just go together, don't they?














That's all for now but more will follow.

I adore the front yard of that house! My yard will curve down, but not that much. What a wonderful idea to deal with that.

Girl you are fast at doing the post! lol. We just got home from the Apple Butter Stirrin Festival and I have a headache from the wind beating my head! We had a great time though, and I am so glad we ran into each other at the Rural Antique Show. It made it all the more fun! I am washing up my tole tray and will decide where and how to hang it tomorrow.~Hugs, Patti

Hello HAPPY lady...and you are a burst of sunshine to me:) Wish I would run into you at a sale...although i'm downsizing to a mini cooper so we would be in the same tiny car. (but it is amazing what you can fit:) and if you ever get one of those amazing trucks...i'm going for a ride!!!!!
XOXOXO

I came across this blog through Maggie (Grandma Yellow Hair) and I am so glad I did. I now can't wait to sit down and read your blog more throughly. I hope you take time to have a look at mine. I too have been married 42 years and have 3 children, 7 grandchildren. My blog is full of family stories.

Cheryl said...

Ahhhhhhh what great fall pictures. An orange cat to boot!!!

Kathy said...

Looks like lots of fun! I'd love to run into you - not literally at a market! That picture of the table and chairs next to a house looks so familiar - Is that another blogger's place?
I'm going to try to recall....
Hugs,
Kathy

Debby, A Rural Society! I just love the sound of that. What a great day you had for your outing, and friends to meet up with as well. Your comment on my blog was a mystery to me, but I am hoping it meant that you know the person who owns all of the wonderful head vases. WOW! Imagine! I visited Springfield today. I have not been to one in Reynoldsburg, do tell!
Have a great week! Elizabeth
