My Country Living Buys/ The world's largest eggplant

I love this table runner.  It has vintage trailers, banners and owls on it.  How cool is that, all my favorites.  I also like the fall colors.
 
 
 
 
This tiny little framed little doll just caught my eye while we were shopping in the Earth Angels tent.
 
 

I loved the carved letters out of books.  The M's were okay but not enough colors.  The first day I saw some words spelled out in a smaller version.  I passed the first day.  I was so glad that they were still there on my second day.  There were two words let.  H O M E and L O V E.  I settled for the home.  I picked up the first three letters and then all of a sudden there was no "e".  I just looked at it.  Well, someone right next to me had it in her hand.  I fought her to the ground, and I won.  Now, you know that is a story right?  I'm not leaving it on the runner, that's just for the picture.
This is a tiny dollhouse sofa out of wood.  The tag said it was a set of two.  But we couldn't find the second one.  This booth had lots of vintage finds.  There also was a red plastic sofa and chair for twice the price.  I didn't even like those.  The paint on this is perfect.  Remember my dollhouse shelf, that's where it will go.  Anxiously awaiting the mini swap items to arrive that Mary Bell is hosting.  Hoping to add to the others I have from Amy Power's swap.

Okay, I hope you are sitting down.   this is the biggest eggplant ever.  And, I grew it myself. I keep waiting on it to get bigger but it doesn't.  And how about those tomatoes.........yep, from my rusty wagon.  Next year we will use more soil.  That's it for now.  I'll be back soon.

I love all your finds from that cute little doll in the frame to your letters to your quilt pieces.

I hope we don't see a home video from you called The Invasion Of The Giant Eggplant. xo Diana

Looks like you found some cute things at the fair! I've never grown eggplant and I don't eat it, so I'll take your word that it's big. LOL!

Lol at your eggplant. That's funy! But I can't even imagine growing something edible! So you are way ahead of me in that department. Love the book letters! I didn't see them. I'm sure there was a lot I didn't see. There was sooo much stuff there. Gotta do it different next time I go.
Have a great week
Xoxo

I love the vintage finds especially the couch!

Julia said...

Well your eggplant may look small but you grew it. Do you have plans to eat it? The portions may be small but I bet tasty.

I love the book letters spelling HOME. Someone was creative. I'm glad that you found something you like at the fair.

Hugs,
JB

Your garden did well this summer. I want to tell you that last year I found a Nativity scene cut out of a book (like your home letters.) I wonder if they were made by the same craftsman. All I remember is he was from far away from VA.
Happy Fall.

I LOVE the runner. I can tell you had a good time. I don't think this would be a long drive if we left from the lakehouse. Maybe next year.

Loving those book letters. Your strombecker wooden miniature couch is fabulous. That's my favorite type of dollhouse furniture to collect. Can't wait to see other minis from your swap!

Looks like you made quite a haul at the fair. I love the table runner. It's so interesting that it had all your favorite things on it. Sad to say, we don't have any Fall Fairs around here. However, the craft shows will be starting up again in November.

Now I must get busy here. I have a lot of crocheting to get finished up in the next two months. You have a fabulous day, hugs, Edna B.
