I'm sharing a card today I created using the "I AM" collection from Simple Stories. Yes... I love this collection. It was what our Little Blue House kit last month, but before I knew that I had already purchased some... because I was so drawn to it. So you are going to see me using it on a number of projects. lol But seriously, who could tired of these pretty papers?? You can find them all in The Little Blue House Online Store.
The bow is my paper bow die from AccuCut BOWS VC106
So ... I thought I'd share some of our day on Saturday. Like I said, it was our first time here. Although I know they have had this event before, never with near this many vendors from what I understand. It was a beautiful day for a drive. I met my sis in Lincoln and we headed to Avoca from there. I had never been even been to Avoca before, but it's only about a half hour from Lincoln.
There was a nice variety of vendors. Each with their own unique style. A little something for everyone. Always fun just to look, ( if you are a window shopper. Unfortunately I'm not so good at that. lol) I always find things I just HAVE to have :)
Maybe everyone seemed so happy just because they were happy to be out on such a nice Spring day :)
I love it when events have fun things for kids also. You don't always have to spend a lot of money to take your kids to something. Sometimes "simple" is better. For just $1 to get in , they had all kinds of animals for the kids to see, photo opps, big tire swings ect.
Like I said.. I saw lots of things I would have loved to take home with me. Jan and I visited this booth a number of times. CUTE stuff!
( thanks for pointing the direction .. whoevers hand that is in the photo) lol
There was so many of these windmill pieces. We walked up at 10:15am , fifteen minutes after it opened , and ever single one was already marked SOLD. I SO wish I could see what each person was doing with them.
The barn was even full of fun stuff. I took this photo from the opening in the front of the loft of the barn. Over to the left is the little school house. You can just see part of it. The back side had restrooms. Very nice restrooms.. which is a plus for me. We were impressed with how this event was put together. Congratulations Rural Route Rust on a really nice event.
I forgot to take photos of what I ended up buying :( So I just snapped photos of a couple of things with my phone. I love this tin corrugated arrow I found! Decided to hang it here in the Mud room.
My sis and I hit were junking at a number of different places all day Friday AND Saturday, so I'm having a hard time remember what I'll I picked up along the way. lol This stuff was from Saturday. Another Clock for my collection. A Parcheesi board.. just because I liked it. lol
I got two different shirts on Saturday at RRR. They had a great set up for T shirts. You picked out your size, color and print and they had a press, and ironed them on right there. It was great.
This isn't from Saturday. I found these at the Estate Dispersal Sale on Friday. Nothing fancy at all but a great deal. And we just need them to be functional. This is at the Cabin. We aren't there much any more but Wes is, and she's been telling me the chairs were in bad shape. The table and chairs came with the cabin when we bought it 25 years ago. I totally want to keep the table, I love it. And it's really sturdy. The chairs had served us well .. but needed to be replaced. These chairs are not fancy.. but remember it's a cabin. They were in really good shape and .... wait for it............ $20 for all 4
Wes only put three in there to save space. He can pull the other one out when needed.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend also!
Thanks for letting me share.
