A day in paradise .... Simply Iowa.
Who am I to turn down an invitation to a garden party????
So when Barb from Simply Iowa in Fairfax, issued her invitation .... I told Honey it was time to empty the truck and hit the road!
Friday ... Honey and I took off and stopped and had a fabulous breakfast at my favorite cafe. After fueling up in anticipation of a hard morning of antiquing, we were off to Fairfax.
First of all .... I am just putting it out there .... If I ever ever win the lottery, Barb has to come to my house and decorate! I just love her style. She has this amazing shop filled with previously loved items ..... and the love shows through!! Pieces of stained glass in a chipped bowl, well-read books, torn pieces of handmade lace. I love it all!!!!
Tamara and Cynthia came with Tamara's big truck! At this point ... it is jump, jump, jump! hug, hug, hug! giggle, giggle, giggle!
Ahhhhhh.......... if I go toooooo crazy, there might be a way to get stuff home!!! Fortunately, Honey and I can stack the truck like the Beverly Hillbillies and feel no shame!!!!
A truly drool-worthy vignette ... Norwegian style spinning wheel ... a tied crazy quilt and a sponged yellow ware bowl. Honey had to pull me away.
It was a great day .....
We had a wonderful time, just cruising through the very green Iowa countryside.
Cuz after all .... it may not be heaven but it is Iowa.
