Antique Show

Last weekend was the Antique Show at Elnora, which I have made an occasional visit to thru the years. This year, however, we were there from Thurs. afternoon until Sunday night - cause my mom had a stand in the flea market. She had all kinds of stuff, like pillows she handmade, old dishes, hankerchiefs, vintage aprons, Boyd's bears, etc. She was soooo funny about it - so super excited:) She ended up doing well, but still came home with lots of left over junk! ha ha!!

She named her stand after her late best friend, Susie Trueblood. Her and Sus used to say that they were gonna retire and start their own country craft store named Sus-anna's attic. We got a sign painted and ordered a stamp with this name - I think Sus would have been excited:)

We ended up taking our camper and golf cart over to the fairgrounds...and made a crazy weekend of it! It really was alot of fun - besides Max having a fever/cold most of the weekend. As long as he had Tylenol in him, he was just fine, but once it wore off I had a grumpy little man on my hands. Luckily, I had plenty of people to keep him entertained (Papa, Uncle Faye, Jessica, Lauren, Elisah, Gabe, Nana!)

We had some great food (I just love "fair" food) and saw lots of tractors...I even managed to get Max to pose on some big tires:) By Sunday evening - everyone was worn out and grumpy...but all in all it was a pretty good weekend! This week is pretty typical around here...work, home, supper, laundry, baths, bed. Same routine, different night:)

Hope everyone is having a good week - and tomorrow we will be halfway to the weekend! yeah!!

As soon as I saw your mom's booth's name, I knew it was for Susie. How very sweet. I'm sure she misses her dearly...those two were like two peas in a pod. :) Hope Max is feeling better. Bray seems to have recovered, but Brynna still had 103.6 last night. :(

The name of your mom's booth is so cute! I love that she kept the name that her and Susie had talked about for such a long time together. And the last picture of Max I love! Don't know what kind of face he is making though. haha
