Farm Girls Journey to The Funky Junk Sisters Sale Part I

The Farm Girls decided to stay closer to home this year, so we went to The Funky Junk Sisters Sale in Puyallup, Washington on May 14th and 15th. Like all adventures I take these girls on I have a itinerary of where we will stop along the way. Erin was unable to go with us, as she went to Hawaii for her daughter's wedding. She was very missed and thought about the whole time. We started early with stops in Chehallis to a quilt shop, then on to Galvin, of which Roger and I discovered a few years ago when that area of Centralia flooded so badly, we had taken a car load of donations to a fellow farm girls home to help with the flood victims. Following the country roads we came upon this great little antique gas station with vintage equipment. What a eye candy for us all. From there we went to Tumwater to a garden that I have visited for years, it is called the Fairie Herb Garden, a must garden to check out. I love to try to get there at least three times during the growing season. Some great plants came home with us all.

How many of you have heard stories on how trucks would haul ice to the homes to provide coldness for the ice box refrigerators?
These vintage gas pumps just make us feel in ah over the old days.
No adventure for the Farm Girls is complete with out a stop at a Quilt shop. This shop is in Chehallis, Washington, it is called Sisters Quilt Shop and is one of my favorites to visit when heading north towards Seattle. Here is Robin and I, getting our memory picture where we have been on our journey.
Arriving at the Funky Junk Sisters Sale, in the parking lot were four travel trailers owned by some Sisters On The Fly, all decorated to the "T" each with their own personality. These Farm Girls were doing a lot of dreaming of the same day. With Farm Girl Katy at the helm we could pull one of these to adventures. Ummmm, I see some Farm Girls dreaming.
This trailer was definitely fit for a princess, all that pink and aqua colors, Loved it!
Love this table setting, look close at that martini glass, that is one serious drinking glass.
How about a little fishing on this adventure for these Sisters On The Fly? Below you will see some of the views we got to indulge in. How much fun do you think these girls are having?

I would say these Sisters On The Fly know how to make their traveling homes really special for each other. Stay tuned for part two of this journey for the Farm Girls to The Funky Junk Sisters Sale.
