!!Springfield Extravaganza!!

I didn't end up going to the Country Living Fair this year but I DID get to go to the Springfield extravaganza with 3 of my best friends. I hadn't been there since Little Sister was a tiny baby. That time I carried her around in my Ergo baby carrier. She was so good - I even nursed her on the go:) This time the 'sisters' all stayed with my Mom. We did have a baby with us this time, just not mine and not as tiny! Little Meg rode in the stroller and was a wonderful little girl. She is going to grow up to be a great flea market shopper:)

I found some fun stuff on top of having a great time with friends. And I didn't break the bank either. All around great day!

'New' table for my kitchen. Narrower and longer, it fits better and we can all get around it. Travis does wish I'd learn to like stuff with a better finish but this is just so cute. And since he rarely wipes the table off... I'll just try to keep the crumbs out of the cracks to keep him happy!

Old metal sign. Could NOT pass this one up! Especially after Tonia did such a great job of getting the price right for me! Thanks, friend, I owe you one:)

Wire basket for dirty towels. I'm liking the look of this so much better than the blue plastic tub I was using:)

I was so excited to find another stool like the one we have. Then when I got it home we discovered it is taller than the one we have so it doesn't work at the table as well. Sigh. There is always something! This stool is now painted red and Little Sister loves it even if it scrunches her legs a tad. I have plans to have it shortened, hopefully in the near future, but we shall see. I'm so good at putting things off:(

I have a fetish with old picture frames and this one sucked me in!

Neat book of maps at a BARGAIN price!

Shame on me for not taking my camera to the extravaganze! I wish I could have but it doesn't work well enough anymore to make it worth messing with at something like that! Meg was a cutie, I certainly would have taken pics of her if I'd had my camera along. Next time!

Love the frame... I too am liking empty ones. Hope to have several @ our Nov. sale :)
I thought the extravaganza was great {wish it would happen more often!}
