Molly Mo's Summer Antique Fair

Queen Anne's Lace and Aqua blue go hand in hand with summer, along with the summer show at Molly Mo's on Saturday, August 21st. Diane has put together a great group of vendors for this show. My choice for this day was to make the trek to Sublimity, Oregon to this fun sale. I was not disappointed.
This is Carol and myself, I met Carol last year at Molly Mo's sale, we instantly hit it off. I ran into Carol at the Mary Jane Store in Courde'lane Idaho last June, she introduced herself as my "blogger" stocker, with my daughter standing there, you can only imagine what Heather thought at first, until we explained what the conversation was about, then Heather was OK with it. Carol is not a blogger but follows many of our blogs. I feel blessed to have met her.
Some of Carol's creations, she is a beautiful sewer and a great new friend from this last year.
Love these sunflowers and these primitive buckets, just with the right amount of ageing.
Here is Martha of Vintage Trifles, what a creative lady, and she is one of the sweetest people I have gotten to know this last year.
Love these chandeliers, the options are endless as to what you can hang from them. What would you hang from one, if you had one?
Summer flower bouquets are such a joy to indulge in, especially in white pitchers or any vintage containers, wouldn't you agree?
Don't you just love those aqua blue canning jars? Well I sure do, they are so multi purposing.
Joy and Betty enjoying some time catching up. We have missed not seeing Betty.
Joy's inviting setting, doesn't this make you want to take a little rest? Or to purchase so you can create this in your own setting.
A collection of some of Joy's necklaces, all unique in their own way.
Diane of Molly Mo's had these great light fixtures from old funnels, what a great idea.
This ruffled tierd apron certainly captured my eyes.
Traveling the back roads home to the 205, I catch a glimpses of a field of yellow and blue, I make a decision to turn around and go back to see if I could get some kind of photo, well the road I decided to turn around at took me to this surprise. I felt like I had hit the "mother lode" with ah in my heart I felt so blessed to see such a sight. It all conjured up all kinds of memories from the past.
Stay tuned to my next post as the Farm Girls create their own sunflowers.


  1. Thank you for capturing such great shots of this sale. I have been wanting to go down for one and it just hasn't happened. Looks like I am missing a great sale.

  2. Florence, it's so nice to see all the pics of shows I wish I could go to. You do such a wonderful job of capturing their essence. LOVE Diane's funnel pendants--clever!

  5. Hi Florence,
    I love these kind of posts... call them field trips. It's so nice seeing the different people, wares, ideas... you name it! I too, love the canning jars with Queen Anne's Lace, very pretty! I love those chandeliers, would love to hang one from our very old pine tree out front, perhaps some keys, an old pretty bell would be a start (I love it when people ask a question about what we'd do out here ;)

  6. Hello Florence,
    It was wonderful to see you at the sale and love the pics you took. I just today updated my blog with the pics taken by Jen, you need to check them out. Hope to see you soon, are you going down to Coburg this Sunday? We'll be there selling!
