Saturday morning, bright and early, off to the antique show at Lakeside! A little smaller this year in terms of vendors and shoppers, but still lots of great stuff!! Lots of wicker everywhere ~ perfect for the porches on those Victorian houses and cottages that line the streets of this charming little place.
Our one and only purchase was this folding metal chair! Isn't it the cutest? Very unusual and I thought a little hooked chair pad would look great on it!!!!! I also found an old 'cubby' that was a great price and would be perfect for wool ~ but we had the car and couldn't even begin to think of squeezing it in there! Too bad ~ I have dreams about it ~ wish I had bought it and figured out how to get it home later!!!!!!
Karen and I on the back of our friend's boat ~ he invited us for cocktails even though he wasn't there ~ so we made ourselves at home!
This weekend we had breakfast at the new Tin Goose Diner at the airport outside Port Clinton. It's at the Liberty Aviation Center, which is also new and a pretty interesting place! The diner is an original brought from Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania and is really nice inside. All stainless steel and red and white upholstered booths and seats ~ by the time, I thought to take a picture, it was full of people ~ which was a good thing!!
Sunday, we had our annual Top Shelf Party ~ that's where we clean out the top shelf of our fridges and put it altogether for a little feast! Wine nobody else will drink, wine coolers, pickles, snacks, and maybe we each fix a little something special! It was fun ~ we sat outside in that heat and just gorged ourselves!! Four of our pals must have gone inside to get more goodies!
We also got in some beach glass hunting but the pickings were slim ~ this is the results of a couple of different forays ~ kind of sad. The end of summer and it seems as though the beach glass harvest is winding down, too!
I'm getting ready for a show at Quailcrest Herb Farm this Saturday ~ there's a link on my sidebar under Coming Events. I'm marbelizing, dying, tearing wool, bundling sari ribbons and yarns ~ whew! Hope I'll be ready!!!
I trust you all had a good Labor Day weekend and now we're ready to usher in Fall!!! There are still tons of Sauder rugs to show you ~ life is like a merry-go-round here ~ I can hardly keep up!! Talk to you soon!
