Wow! What a weekend!!

Honey and I fled eastern Iowa last weekend.  After day after day, week after week, working and working here on the farm.  Seriously, a big-time-trip away from home was a trip to the ice cream shop in DeWitt! It was time to flea. 

As in flea market!

Did you know that I just love, love, LOVE me a flea market????  Do I ever!!!

One of my favorite flea market is in the little town of What Cheer, IA.  It is held the first weekend of May, August and October.

It has been a while since we have been there.  But it sure didn't disappoint!

 These bags may become aprons ......... or pillows ........... or both!

I loved these red ware plates.  Hand-made, folk-y, wonderful!  They are going into my kitchen.

These adorable child-sized hangers are getting an updated look and then will be for sale in the Summer Kitchen.

I bought three vintage hats that will be for rent next summer. The one on the right could use a little work from a milliner.  But who knows a milliner????  Gorgeous shape and in great condition .... except the ribbon needs some work. :(  I would seriously wear it.  A lot!

After we purchased a tractor seat and a lightening rod for the Summer Kitchen, it was on to Day 2 of  Honey and Miss Eff's big adventure.

Tomorrow .......... FarmCrawl in Central Iowa!!!


Great finds Cathy! I am LOVING the feed sack.
