Molly Mos Antique Faire

The sunflowers were all in their glory in Diane's garden, oh how I wished had gotten them to grow this year, the slugs decided they need them more than me, I guess.
The setting is perfect for Molly Mos Antique Faire as you can see there were lots of vendors there to show their goods, I arrived at noon and there was still a good amount to choose from. The weather was perfect not too hot, Diane had a wonderful vendor that served food and cold drinks, perfect for my ride to my next destination. This was my first time to this sale I would certainly go again.
The vintage aprons were hung on the line waiting for that special person to choose their favorites.
This was inside of Molly Mos shop she had some great finds here.
This was inside of Diane's little playhouse/tea house, um I am wondering if I could get PaPa Roger to build one of these for my grandchildren, oh how I wonder.
I loved this dress it was made out of pink dotted swiss fabric, something that would have been from my high school days, 40 years ago.
How inviting is this setting on a hot summer day or summer evening?
This was from Auntie Joys space, oh how I love her mannequins, she always has such great ways to dress them. She will be at Monticello Antique Fall Premier Show with special added vendors, check out their site for more information.
This is Vintage Trifles spot, I got to meet Martha, the photo does not even give the justice that this space had to offer, I think she might be at Monticello and I am thinking she has been featured in some publications for her artistic talent.
This photo and the one below is from Kindred Roses, Julie is always a delight to see, this iron hospital bed I was told sold, it was longer than our normal twin, someone is really going to enjoy it.

This is Carol, what a sweet lady, she had some beautiful aprons, very well made, some pear pincushions of which I did indulge my self in, as well as some great pins to wear complete with vintage accents. I am so glad I got to meet her.
This photo and the one below was from a booth that had lots of great color in her displays, I apologize that I did not get her name.

This lady, whom I forgot her name had some great vintage clothing as you will see below.

What a day this was to see so many great treasures and see so many friends that I had not seen in years. I also got to see an old class mate of mine from Wy'East High School, she was in my wedding and I was in hers, we always seem to bump into each other at antique shows, it was a special treat to see Sue today.

Queen of Tarte and Willow Nest

The sign says it all. Saturday was a very busy traveling day for me, I went to Queen of Tarte, then I was off to Molly Mo's sale down in Sublimity, from there I traveled the country roads to Troutdale for a lovely dinner with some great friends, thanks Ed and Carol, complete with a great view of our Mount Hood.
The Queen of Tarte and her special quests Willow Nest along with Annie, Fannie and Abigail, and Erin were there ready for us all to enjoy. There may have been other vendors there but I was not sure. Watch for the Queens next sale in September, check out her site to learn more.
The outside settings again were incredible, the pink dahlias made everything POP, wow says it all. That Erin can sure come through with those beautiful dahlias, thank you for the eye candy. The umbrellas above the head boards are made by Ludmil, I will have to save my money to buy one, you can even use it out in the garden to train your peas to grow up.

This bed was complete with hops hanging over the bed frame for a nice slumber for sleeping. Hops are known medicinally to aid in sleeping. I have put them in sleep pillows and it does work.
Linda and my new friend Connie, she is so fun to see at these sales, always a smile for you.
Here is one of Erin's hair garlands, she had these and some wonderful crowns she made, the hair garlands reminded me of our Lavender Festival Days.

Annie, Fannie and Abigail always presents us with new found objects each show, below are some of the treasures they had for us all. Thank you.

There were some great clearance items outside not to be missed.
Look close at those white doll skates on the blue shelf, pink was definitely in the air.
Here is Isabela, my friend Gayle Tweed from many years ago through the antiquing days, and Lisa. Check out Lisa's white gown it was perfect for her outfit. I often think how nice it is that we all can wear fun clothes to these sales and feel right at home. This day I saw some old friends that I had not seen in years, what a gift.
Check out the bloomers that Isabel had on, so cute.
These wooden stars were made by Erin, they had a magic about them.
That wire gate with the buckets went home with me to use in my studio when it is up and working, thanks Cindy.
This cotton dress, along with the one below you can tell they were lovingly picked, washed and pressed to make us dream of the days when we were younger. They were beautiful.

Oh how I love the blue, I bought that spool of darker blue ribbon, I will have fun using it I am sure.
There was plenty to feast your eyes on at the yummy table, including Huckleberry Pie, Basil Zucchini Muffins and scones complete with specialty jams and jellies that Erin brought.
Lots of fresh fruit, what a great color combination.
Natalie's yummy cake, I was sure to get some this time.
Some more of Erin's beautiful dahlias. I will post on Molly Mos next, so stay tuned.

A blend of glass ware and vintage fabric roses and lace made for an eye catching table setting.
These flowers from African basil and the tri-color sage along with the sunflowers created a beautiful site for the eyes.

I loved this lamp shade.

This was Uncovered Ruby's space, what a great metal table, I have one on my deck that I leave out and don't worry about it getting wet. It makes a great extra table to use when you are entertaining.

Check out this pink prom dress, complete with red cow girl boots on the side, a perfect match for a farm girl don't you think? I do not remember the name of this person who had this booth or I would mention it. She had a great selection of goods.
Look at this detail.

These flower bouquets are from a LaCenter farm not far away from here. They were only $6.00 each, what a deal.
This musician was soothing to the ears, this was a nice touch to the Vintage Flea Market. Next one is on Saturday September 12, don't miss out, along with the Barn House Harvest Sale held that day too.
