I got up this morning and headed to Just Plain Country in Walnut Cove, NC. It's about a twenty minute drive for me. It was already in the 80's and you could just tell it was about to get a lot hotter. I stopped at the Stokes County farmer's market which was set up beside JPC and grabbed some Silver Queen corn and some good looking cucumbers. Then I got busy and put about twenty small items in my two booths and picked up and straightened up from the Saturday crowd. People tend to unfold and examine quilts and linens and then just bunch them up and put them back on the shelf. Not good...sure adds wrinkles:( As soon as I finished my chores and fun with the spaces I started looking around to see what was new since last week. There were two vendors there putting things in their booths and one new vendor moving in. I can't believe it but I am grateful that I didn't buy a thing. I was tempted by a hooked rug for my kitchen that was marked from $40 to $10.....that is always enough to tempt me but the colors weren't really right so I passed.
I stopped at Germanton Antique Mall for just a few minutes and visited with a vendor that was changing out her entire booth. She does this about once a month and is so talented with her use of maybe 3 main colors and one theme. This month's them is country living and she had a small cabinet with punched tin door inserts and then she strung a clothes line and hung bib shorts (denim) and a red top and a yellow linen. She did the entire space in red/blue/yellow....lamps, pitchers, pictures, etc. Too cute. I could never do it because I have a larger space everywhere and probably have 100 or more items in each one.
It was a great morning to be out and about but I was glad to get home before it hit 97 and enjoy the a/c and catch up on some more things here.
I am getting excited to start on the picture taking this weekend and show you all a few things I want to share. Thank you for stopping in to visit with me and being patient waiting for the pictures to show up.
