Welcome!. I live in Oviedo, Florida with my handsome husband, two great kids and a pair of silly basset hounds. Oviedo is a little town where you can get a Barney’s coffee on one corner and have to wait for the chickens to cross on the next. I love to shop for vintage treasures to use in my home and artwork. Come along with me!
It sure was a Great Day in the Country! Saturday was our town's annual craft fair. The weather could not have been better. It was a cool 50 degrees to start out and warmed up to the mid 70's. There was not a cloud in the sky.
Kara and I got an early start. We were inside the fair before the 9:00 start so we could get in line at our favorite booth - Tuckers. The owner always seems to have something great with rusty old wheels. They sell out quick. This year we were lucky enough to score this adorable barrel above. I plan to use it by the front door and put a Charlie Brown Christmas tree inside. Like her? They also had these great wagons. I grabbed a few for my friends who were still parking.
Here are a few more Christmas goodies from this great booth. I love this altered skate and suitcase below.
These signs are really cute too. Made from old cabinet doors. Some still had the latches. Hard to take pics with so many people trying to grab the merchandise!
Just like in blogland, there were tons of fabric pumpkins to choose from at the fair. Here are a few that I found interesting and thought might inspire you.
How about this gorgeous three dimensional stained glass with vintage glassware built in? Amazing and just gorgeous out there in the sun.
We always have to stop and visit the local honey vendor. Kids love the honey sticks. This booth is a favorite at our farmer's market too.
Found some good Christmas gifts at this next booth. Too crowded for pictures but managed a few!
I hope you enjoyed coming along. This weekend is Renningers. I need to replenish some supplies. I always find great bottles, books and jewelry pieces at this antique fair. I'll be sure to take you along again. Christmas craft coming next. Get ready to alter some bottle brush trees and bottles!
