I have always heard great reviews about the Clayson Farm
Antiques Show in Yakima, WA, but had never made it there.... Until this weekend! Lisa and I made the eight hour round trip this last Saturday, and were very happy we did...!! The setting, in the gardens of Leslee's beautiful country home, is absolutely gorgeous! Not only was it fun to hunt for treasures, we got to see some of our favorite people there!!!
Loved visiting with my sweet friend Julie
I bet you have never seen Joy
without a smile on her face...
This picture just cracks me up...!!! Allow me to poke fun at these sweet friends o' mine (you know I love you guys!).... Lisa
is doing her "let me get rid of my double chin" pose, Cindy
, well, my guess is she is still thinking about that hot dog she wanted to eat earlier, and that handsome guy, Jermonne
.... eh.... sorry, can't come up with anything other than.... I love that smile!!! Missing in action was Joe
, who was happily snatching all the great stuff while we fools were socializing....
Here is a peek at some of the cool vintage finds that came home with me...
It is hard to see, but this child's chair is truly dainty!! Sweet!
I bought this drawer from Sue
, a fellow lover of vintage wallpaper...
On our drive back, we stopped at an "estate sale" (the term was used loosely since it included mainly tools...)., and I found an old funnel, which I hope to repurpose as a hanging lamp, and the end of an old rake, which I thought would be great on the kitchen wall for hanging my aprons and tote bags!
P.S. I've had requests to show you how I made my rug-to-bag featured on the previous post, so I am adding a step-by-step tutorial to that post... For those of you who do not sew, I will be making some to sell soon, so keep posted... Have a great week!!
