Wasn't it fabulous ~

A good time was had by all ~ Let's take a look ~

A quick peek at my booth

And my friend Karen's booth

When everyone left for the day Saturday, we played and had fun ~
I think she had the MOST fun in Mr. Vintage's little pedal car ;-)

Isn't this car just adorable?
Even the grown ups had fun ~

There was a kettle corn booth ~ yum ~

And the old historic buildings are sooo fabulous ~
The barber shop

The doctor's office

This one is my favourite ~ I could live there ;-)

It was a wonderful weekend ~ filled with fun and laughter ~ Hope your weekend was wonderful too ~ what fun things did you do this weekend?

Are you ready ~ ?

Good morning everyone ~ Well, the day has finally come.  It is time to leave for the Treasure Hunt at Heritage Village.  Are you all packed and ready?  We're leaving soon

Mr. Vintage has the camper hooked up and ready.  The food is packed away.  We're all set.  A few of my friends have asked for a sneak peak at the camper.  Well ~ I finally made curtains for the camper ~ out of red gingham tea towels.
I really like the way that they look so comfy and campy ;-)

The weather is supposed to be sunny and in the mid 70's.  PERFECT weather for a Treasure Hunt ~ don't you think?  At night, it is supposed to go down into the high 50's ~ hmmmm, I think we'll be sleeping very well ~ especially in this little comfy bed
Well ~ time to go.  Let's get rolling ~ we're going to have some fun, fun, fun ~

Smile for the camera ~

Hello and Happy Friday everyone ~ I just had to share this with you.  It brought a happy smile to my face.  Please read ~

Child's View of Thunderstorms
A little girl walked to and from school daily. Though the weather that morning was questionable and clouds were forming, she made her daily trek to school. As the afternoon progressed, the winds whipped up, along with lightning.

The mother of the little girl felt concerned that her daughter would be frightened as she walked home from school. She also feared the electrical storm might harm her child. Full of concern, the mother got into her car and quickly drove along the route to her child's school.  As she did, she saw her little girl walking along.

At each flash of lightning, the child would stop, look up, and smile.  More lightning followed quickly and with each, the little girl would look at the streak of light and smile

When the mother drew up beside the child, she lowered the window and called, "What are you doing?"
The child answered, "I am trying to look pretty because God keeps taking my picture."
May God bless you today and every day as you face the storms that come your way!

 May your weekend be filled with Love and a smile

Thrifting and a surprise ~

I hope everyone has had a good week and I hope you are enjoying your Saturday ;-)

The little retirement community in Harrow had a yard sale and Mr. Vintage and I couldn't resist.  Here are some of my treasures ~
A little hen in a nest ~ I couldn't resist her

 Little vintage mirror, I will find a place for you ~

Two galvanized buckets ~ I bought three, but I gave one to my neighbour ~ she deserves it ;-)

My lemonade box ~ it made me smile ~ and then
This cute hat box. But, when I opened it ~ WOW ~!

Two vintage hats were inside.  The lady that sold it to me told me that it was a "special hat box".  I didn't open it right there, but now I know what she meant.  What a sweet lady.  There are still many wonderful people in this world.  How blessed we are when one crosses our path.  I will always remember her smile as she told me to enjoy the hat box. THANK YOU sweet one.

I hope you have a fabulous day ~ Did you go thrifting today?

I can hardly wait for you to tell me
