Welcome to my blog about yard sales, crochet, my family and my life. A yard sale map in one hand and a crochet hook in the other.

Home again!

Back home after spending the weekend with my sister, Pam, and her husband, Ed, at their cabin in Crumpler,NC. Pam and I went especially to attend the Vintage Festival in the neighboring town of West Jefferson. We had a great time with three blocks of vendors along with a couple of antique stores.
 Great music................
That's Pam behind the gorilla.....
She took me to The Cheese Factory where you can watch them making cheese...(I'm saying "cheese"!)
I saw this in an antique store and I think I can make one.
Here are my goodies... two bags full of vintage crochet magazines for $4 per bag. There are Leisure Arts, Magic Crochet, Decorative Crochet, Workbasket, Crochet World, etc...

 This granny square vest leaflet is the reason I taught myself to crochet over 43 years ago!
Isn't this a cute Raggedy Andy?

 Marcella the moose......
 Tiny rocking chair...........
 Bedsprings.....a Pinterest project in mind for these.....
 Finally found a license tag with my birth year, 1953!

 Two small tins ........
 An Avon parakeet....
 Mr. Peanut cookie jar (hard to photograph)


We stopped at a local produce stand for fresh tomatoes and found these gourds....
On the way home, we stopped at an apple house and I bought these beautiful apples and Asian pears....
I had a great time but I'm glad to be home and in my own bed with my dear hubby.
