It's been a busy week plus. We finally got a well needed weeks vacation.
We combined a Field Trial (all about Doyle) trip to the mountains with camping,
and had a wonderful week. We also had our annual county
Fall Festival to look forward to on our return.
First, we visited the Charlottesville, VA area for the "Field Trial".
Here are a bunch of Doyle's Brittany cousins who also attended.
Here is what they call the bunkhouse at the farm.
It was so nice, I could happily live in it!
A gorgeous pastoral view, even though it rain and drizzled
for 3 days straight. From here, we went to the Farmville, VA
area and spent a couple days camping at Twin Lakes State Park.
Okay...what you really came to see.....my haul from the Fall Festival.
Of course we were home in time to attend this annual sale.
All items for sale are donated, and proceeds benefit the needy of the County
by helping pay for heating oil, electric bills, etc. So the more you buy, the better!
We did our share!
Are the "Hoarders" producers coming to my living room?
Please warn me if you see them coming!
You name it, we got it!
You knew there would be vintage linens!
The doilies were free. Four vintage tablecloths for $2.00! Also a
few runners and napkins.
Lots of yellow stains on the tablecloths, but for that price, really!
I've already given them their first soak for the stains.
Some new handcrafted goodies, pot holders and apple pin cushions.
Aren't they lovely draped on the sofa? :)
Blue bowl is MMA, Lucite ice bucket, Westmoreland milk glass with couple vintage pins,
owl and other cards for crafting, vintage coffee pot and Christmas ornaments,
and a travel Scrabble game for our camper!
Vintage painted S & P's, covered MIJ bowl, and Christmas & Easter
tins and goodies for crafting ~ of course!
A few packages of tiny Ganz Christmas candles & boxed ornament,
and some crafting baskets and assorted stuff.
A real score here! This photo was taken before the first "soak", and
it looks better already. This vintage Christmas tablecloth is not easy to find....
my first sighting in the wild, so of course I had to have it.
Got of a group of boxes to either craft with or hold craft supplies.
Love this old cigar box and of course, it will remain intact.
A vintage Regal Coffee urn/pot. Paid $3 for it, an expensive purchase
at this sale. I'll be using it soon to see if it still works.
How could I leave this Lucite ice bucket...so retro cool, & some books ~ always.

and will leave a comment. Happy Fall ~ it finally feels like it here!
