What a crazy, busy weekend, but as I've said, I bring it upon myself.
Saturday I headed to the Harvest at the Mill show in Holly, MI. What a wonderful show. It's so funny because I could head to a show a half hour from home and not know as many people as I knew there. I had a limited amount of time to spend there, and had a hard time trying to see everything because I spent most of my time yacking, and I really am not a yacker . . . lol! And I am so sorry I never even took one picture :( I could have been really bad, but with my upcoming hooking retreats, I tried to restrain myself. I did buy this coverlet piece for me . . .
. . . and this fabric covered box from Bobbie, the Evening Stitcher, because it has my initials on it, though backwards.
Other than that, I did find some silverplate teaspoons for a reasonable price (yeah) and these typewriter keys. I am just kicking myself. Maybe 13 years ago I sold an old typewriter ~ that was before I ever saw the cool things they do with the old keys. Just about every time I sell something old I regret it. That's probably why my attic is out of control . . . lol! Also a couple Christmas gifts that I can't show.
I got to spend some time talking with Earlene. She had some wonderful antiques in her booth. I did buy one of the Christmas gifts from her. I also met Marie, better known as Olde Lady Morgan. She and hubby were just as sweet as can be. Both Bobbie and Marie have shared some great pictures of the show on their blogs.
Sunday morning Jake and I headed to the Akron, OH, Zoo, treated by dear friend Dolly. It is a smaller zoo, but lots of fun. Thanks so much Dolly. You are a special friend :)
Jake going down the slide that runs through the river otter tank.
Jake showing off some of his smashed pennies. In California, I found a smashed penny album. I had not seen those before. The pennies are great souvenirs for only $.51 each and more and more places now have the machines.
Grizzly Ridge is the zoo's newest attraction. Jake and the grizzly were separated by only a pane of glass. Too cool :)
These jellyfish known as Pacific Sea Nettles were just fascinating to watch.
Isn't this sweet?
Jake and Dolly.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
