Father's Day Outing!

My three guys!
 After each of my two sons & my husband
 having terrible car accidents
at three different times 
over the last 6 years,
 I am so blessed to have them all still here!
(I've probably mentioned that before a few times,
but I am just so grateful!)
Love you all!

With cloud covered skies we headed
off to Walnut, Iowa to the 
Amvet's Antique Show! My boys & their
girlfriends planned everything for 
their dad for Father's Day!

Like father, like son.

This house sat along the main street in Walnut
that was lined with vendors. It had the most 
awesome garden right in his front yard!

The sign read... Can you name the 15
different vegetables growing here? 
The proud owner of the garden told me
after I took a couple of pictures, it would be
$10.00 a picture! He was kidding!

This little tool display was adorable!
At over $100.00 it was left behind.

It tickles me that my son & his girlfriend
like some of this old stuff! 
This is my kid that was going to have only 
modern decorating at his house! 

My youngest... with a big smile because
he just had a yummy donut from a
local bakery! He did share a bite!

This set of little chairs and benches in
lime green & robins egg blue 
were adorable!

Mr. "O" taking my purchase of the 
day for a walk. Actually, my son bargained 
& bought them for me. They are going to
be a project for the Holidays.

There were so many cool things & lots
of primitives. Many thing I wanted were out
of my budget. Still fun to look at!

My youngest & his girl.
We stopped at Quaker Steak & Lube
on the way home for a very 
unhealthy lunch! 

At home there was a "Wedding Cake"
(like a strawberry shortcake, cake) from
the FarmHouse waiting for us. 
(oops... I forgot to take a picture)

That ended our day... everyone had a good time
and was worn out from the heat and all the walking.
It was a fun show to visit, but I  didn't feel too deprived, 
coming home with an empty truck. 

Thanks boys & girls for a fun day!
It felt like Mother's day too!


  1. Laurie, you are so lucky that your guys will travel to a flea market with you!!! Did I spy an old vintage 2 layered shopping cart in picture #11?!!! I want one of those so bad!!
    Your blog is wonderful! And your shop looks great! Wish I could visit.
    Bless your nest!

  2. Sounds like a very fun day! I hate that when the prices are out of reach, oh well, still fun to look. Have a great week, Dawn
