Amish Flea Market

On Friday Auntie and I went on a road trip adventure to Clare, Michigan to visit Yoder's Amish flea market and quilt auction .

We had great weather, just a little steamy, and great conversation! It's always a fun excursion, and you never know what you'll see or find to bring home!

Here are some pics from our day...




















We stopped at a couple antique shops in the way home. At one shop, the woman working the counter was so engrossed in her phone, she couldn't be bothered with saying hello back to us, or good-bye.

Here are a couple pics of things we saw...


I love funky, repurposed junk!

Hope you're having a restful, long, holiday weekend!

Summer 2018 Antiquing/Treasure Hunting Adventures

Since my work duties changed in February, I spend my whole day on my computer. When I get home, it's been really hard to convince myself that it want to sit down with my laptop to write a blog post. Most days, my brain is totally fried and I wouldn't have anything intelligent to say anyway!

Life with family and friends had kept me pretty busy and I haven't done nearly as much treasure hunting as I used to. Once in a while I get a chance to head out to see what I can see, and sometimes Auntie can go as well!

Here are some pics from this Summer's adventures...
