Spring Plantings Show!

Is Anybody planning on going to this show???

I am seriously thinking about going to this show ~ it all depends if my niece Niki can get off work.
It's going to be difficult for me ~ I have to work on the Friday night before the show and can't get off.
We would have to leave for the show after I'm done with work and then travel 8 hrs to get there ~ by the time we reach our destination it will be 6 a.m. in the morning.

If anyone has any other info about this show  or if you are planning on attending ~ please let me know!!!

If your thinking about going to this show and want to know where I found it you can visit it here ~ http://springplantings.blogspot.com/

It was a beautiful day here in WI on Sat. so I ventured out and went to my favorite quilt shop ~ Primitive Gatherings to get some fabric for some projects I'm working on.

I also found a wonderful punch needle pattern from With thy Needle & Thread called Berries & Cream.

After that I decided to take a road trip out to Chicken Scratch Vintage and see what Jenifer had ~ I hadn't been out there since last summer ~ it's a fun place to stop!!!
You can keep track of what is going on there on her facebook page ~

Here's some of the treasures I picked up!
Found some old small crates (love to use these in my creative space for fat quarters)
This was stamped on the bottom of the crate.
The box on the bottom is the same box in the top picture just showing you what was stamped on the side of the box.  The top box in this picture we think had a railroad lantern in it.

I also found this wonderful woven rug!

and my favorite finds ~
were the stool, jug and table (I found the little table at the Country Rose Shop)

What have you found lately in your travels??? Please do share!!!

Not much else happening around here ~ just waiting for my honey to come home from his scuba diving trip to Palau

Until Next Time

Treat Yourself Today!

Saturday two of my favorite treasure hunters (Jenny & Niki) and I attended the 40th Winter Wisconsin Antiques Dealers Association Show at the Waukesha County Expo Center in Waukesha WI.

It truly was a wonderful show and we saw so many wonderful collections that the dealers were showing and selling of course.  

It was fun to talk to some of the dealers and learn more about the pieces they were selling!

I tried to take some pictures to give you some idea what was being offered at the show.

This booth carried a wonderful assortment of vintage dolls
and vintage books/vintage games that had the most beautiful graphics on them.

A wonderful piece to add to your primitive collection!


Saw a lot of chocolate molds and vintage cookie cutters.
