Here we go again

Here we go again.. it's Monday! Another week begins.. and I'm hoping it's a productive one.   I did get caught up on alot last week, but lots more sitting here.  Last week just seemed to pass SO quickly.  We helped Wes move on Friday, I went to the Flea market in Walnut Iowa Saturday and then Yesterday we were invited to Kate's parents cabin to grill steaks with the kids for Fathers Day. ALL super fun stuff for sure, but I need to get back to reality today:)   I have tons of photos I want to share with you from this week again..but first I'll share a project.  
The other day when I was looking back at some of my projects for "Scrapbook Answers", and decided I'd share another one with you.

I ended up selling this for a display to a store that I taught at in Kansas. ( not that it would have survived actually being outside anyway). Especially here! lol

Here are some photos from the Flea market in Walnut Iowa.  What fun!! 

This antique show is HUGE! Streets and Streets just lined with vendors.

You could never take it all in, in just one day.   We were there from at least 9-5 and didn't see it all. And that's not to mention all the antique store also.

Just had to share photos of some of the pretties  we saw.
does this scream "summer" or what:)

I loved the colors of these chairs .. so fun all stacked together like that.
  uhh... oh.. and I thought I would just toss this in for good measure.  Homemade ice cream.  It was delish!

Such a cool town.  Vintage goodness everywhere you looked.

I was a good girl, and didn't make alot of purchases, but I did pick up a few things.  I share a photo soon.  I have a little table I'm dying to paint :)
It was a super fun day!


Happy Fathers Day to my Dad!  I love you and miss you everyday!
