Clayson Farm Antique Show




When a sweet gal named Timi spread the word about the Clayson Farm Antique Show...my mama, who's been "flea bitten" ever since Barn House, said, "Oooh...let's go!"


So...Saturday, we hopped in my rig and hit the road to apple country.


By the time we reached our destination...this lovely little gal was filling up her second truck-load of goodies.


How cute is that chair???


My mom went on a search for the perfect dresser...


...as I paused for a moment to take in the show.


Would you like to be a fly in the flea?



Here we go!



















After finding a sweet vintage dresser...



...my mama settled in the shade of one of the farm's lovely trees to catch up on a little reading.










.............................................................





I happened upon The French Hen at the way very end of the show.

Mmmmm...


Can't wait!!!



I would've been happy to take ALL of their treasures home with me!


In addition to my mama's dresser...which needs a bit of work and is a post for another day...I found a few lil' things of my own!

Are you ready to see them?

Are YOU ready to see what I bought at the Clayson Farm Antique Show?
{Please forgive the photos...it's Sunday...I'm working on resting! : }



I bought 3 tins!  Yippee!  I am actually pretty happy with them.  I collect vintage recipe boxes, so I was quite pleased when I saw the lil' tole style box peaking out from bits of packing tissue in a tub of goodies a vendor was pricing.  I already had that one...so, now I have bookends!  The white box with the red lid is also a recipe keeper...with 3 sections.  2 for standard cards and 1 for those a bit larger.  I found {bought} the red tin with the decal as I was heading out the gate.  It should come in handy for organizing all sorts of wee kitchen bits.

I found this next vintage goodie inside the barn.

Hmmm....


One can never have too many lil' tins!
{these 13 happy little molds from Blue Ewe were my first purchase at the show}


As always, I hope that YOU are having a beautiful day!
