Part two of the Antique and Garden Sale

More pictures for you from last week-end.  I still haven't gotten this new blogger format down yet.  I can't seem to write where I want and never sure where the pictures will come up.  I sure love this color of blue.
This kitty sat at the checkout table like nothing was going on.  The kitty got lots of attention.  Hmmmmm, wonder who this handsome guy is.  The guys below are from Folk magazine.  The one in shades is the editor.  They may be smiling but I think they were annoyed with me by having to pose.
The house picture is actually where the owners of the farm live.  They were featured in April's issue of Country Living.
Don't you love the chicken on the roof.  Also love the sign about cowboys. 
The above pictures were of the little stash of things I brought home.  I know "big spender".......
The picture was taken from the internet and put on canvas and placed in a French frame.  I loved the picture but wanted to know more.  The owners of "Three Ring Circus" said they were just looking for circus things.  Wel, hello, need to talk to a real clown that has lots of contacts......I gave them my card.
My friend, Sue, said she was looking for trophies.  I wasn't but when I spotted this.....and saw the name Max......and then as a bonus the dog was a Springer Spaniel.......I knew I had to have it.  Even my husband got a chuckle out of that.  My Dad's name was Max and so is my grandson's.
A cute little doggie and a couple paperback vintage books......Mother Goose (a character I do) and Pokey Little Puppy(my favorite childhood book) just made me smile.  I love seeing all the big pieces, furniture and etc., but I have and still am downsizing.
 I have no room for "big" things and that's okay, I can look. 
The end.

I am excited to show you what I have been painting.  Not finished yet thanks to the rain.  We had a perfect painting outside day on Sunday but rain ever since.  I found a piece of "junk" according to my husband in the garage. He wasn't happy when I asked him to pull it out.   Then I almost fell backwards over a ladder.  He caught my fall.   I made a fairy garden and now I want to do more.  Addicting and so much fun.  Thinking of making my mother one for Mother's Day.  She never likes anything I give her......even tells me I chance it or not?
We celebrated our youngest son's birthday last night.  He was 26.  He wanted to eat at Olive Garden.  Haven't been there in ages.....the breadsticks just drive me crazy not being able to eat them.  Celiac is not fun.....I know it could be a whole lot worse.  I made him some gluten-free cupcakes because that's what I had at home in the pantry.  I didn't tell him....wonder if he will notice.
Our little town is having a circus.  The elephants led the circus into town last night.  I really want to go so I can see the clowns.  My granddaughters can't go......their mom said they don't support circus because of the use of animals.  I never put that much thought into that part but now that I have I can see her point.  Mixed feeling for sure.
Okay, hope that you haven't fallen asleep.  I will sign off before that happens......but I will be back my friends.

I wish I could have been at that sale with you. I loved the trellis around that window in the magazine and you got to see it in person. Great items you got. I can't wait to see your project. I have a blogger friend who also does fairy gardens - Brenda at Cozy Little House. Happy Birthday to your son! The circus always scared me. All those animals on the loose.

Hugs, Gretchen

The sale looks great, the house looks great, the handsome guy looks great.

I am eager to see your fairy garden.

I don't have room for 'big stuff' any more either but I sure love to look and find small treasures! I love fairy gardens, too! Enjoy your day...we're both going to have a GOOD one today! Hugs!

You sure do keep busy! What a neat sale. My mom's dog was named Max! Popular name.

Good luck with the painting...we had rain and gloom all weekend, too, and it looks like it might happen again today!


Kimberly said...

I don't think any man likes his picture taken. Looks like a fun day and good finds. Please take a picture of your fairy garden.

We have had lots of rain here too but today it looks like the sun is going to appear and its going to be a nice weekend.

I love the circus but I have to agree the animals have no kind of life in them. I would go anyway.
You know that people either love clowns or they are actually afraid of them? Do you run onto this often ?

Susie said...

Debby, Love all the pictures. That aqua blue is pretty. Yes, I like the chicken on the roof. Smiles, Susie

NanaDiana said...

What great pictures, Debbie. I love all your small treasures. I think you had a ton of fun!

I would think your Mom would love a handmade gift with a "fairy" theme. It is hard to please some people...especially some mothers. Blessings- xo Diana

Really? The circus came through Granville? I heard they came through Upper Arlington. We just got back from Ca. late Monday night and catching up on sleep and laundry. So was the show good on Saturday? ~Hugs, Patti

Gina said...

I bet you had a great time at the sale! It looks like you found some treasures there.

Julia said...

I used to do sales on the weekend but stopped as I've accumulated so much stuff from the Value Village second hand store.

I can't wait to see your fairy garden.

Funny, I never cared for circus or clowns even as a child. I like the petting zoo much better.

Sue said...

Debby- I like that handsome guy, too- I took him home with me, ya know! LOL You already did your little fairy box garden- I still have my stuff packed away, but I have a good excuse- I've been working in the yard trying to make it look "purty." Gardening is hard work....
I wrote to Page and told her that the guy at Willow Works (the guy who had the hypotufa pots) was pretty rude. She told me to contact the company in Mt Vernon. It would be just my luck to end up talking to the guy who who was so rude in the first place. He might even be the one who runs the place~ Sheesh!
While I understand that the monies from sales benefit a good cause, that is no reason to be rude and inattentive to potential customers. I got an e-mail from someone who said she experienced the same thing! It's a shame that the people who worked at that booth space were so ignorant! Talk later.. Sue

I already commented on part 1, without knowing, and see that in this post you mention you have celiac's, too, Debby! It stinks sometimes, doesn't it? It will be 5 years later this year and I still miss having a fast food burger, pie and pizza.
