Walker Homestead Show

I picked up Bonnie this morning and we headed out to the show. Along the way we stopped at Primitive Thyme's in Spencer. It was so nice to catch up with Karen. The shop was beautiful as always. I saw several things I would have loved to bring home with me but knew I needed money for the show.

We then headed off to the "Simple treasure's from the past... " show at Walker Homestead . The weather was beautiful. The sun was shining brightly and although it was hot there was a nice breeze that blew just when I needed it most.

We walked around and talked with the vendors . I was so happy to meet Doreen Frost of Vermont Harvest Folk Art I love her work and it is even nicer in person if that is possible.

There were so many wonderful things to see and I wish I could have bought it all. Here are a few shots I took but I admit I am not good at this I just looked and enjoyed instead of snapping pictures. The good news is Bonnie is a pro and will blog all about the wonderful day we had.Click here to Go over to the APP Blog.

This is the back of the shop/home....

The gardens are beautiful and you can purchase plants as seen here.

There was so many wonderful vendors. They are listed on the walker homestead site. Here is just a sneak peek at what I saw.

I loved this dry sink. I wasn't surprised to see it hauled away by the lucky new owners.

I did buy a few items. This make do shelf made by Primitives by Maria.It is painted a nice prim green.

The red heart is made by Jo-Ann Helbig of Leyden MA. I bought 2 one for my Mother and one for me.
The other items came from Richmond House of CT. The quilt is new but she aged it well.

We left hot tired and happy.
We drove home talking and reliving the events of the day and passed many yard sales until I spotted one with quilts and did a quick U-turn. They were a bargain and came home with me.

It was a wonderful time and I am looking forward to next years show. This was a "lame" attempt to capture the day so be sure to head over to APP and get the Professional version!!
Thanks for another great time Bonnie.
