A Summer Weekend

Don't the weekends just fly by?  We hit the road early Saturday to be among the first to browse the booths at the Bingham Waggoner antique show in Independence, Missouri. Leslie and I have rented a booth at the show for many years, but decided to forego the booth this year and just concentrate on shopping.
A trip to Independence is not complete without a stop at Brown's Emporium. It may look a little nondescript on the outside, but inside is brimming with well stocked, artfully arranged booths.
For most, the 4th of July marks the middle of the summer, but to me, its the Bingham-Waggoner show. There are many hot, summer days ahead, but once this show is over my thoughts turn towards autumn. 
 Today I finished a little piece from Notforgotten Farm from the Primitive Sisters Club. Instead of framing this, I decided it needed to be a little pillow.
Hope you had a great weekend!

There you go again ;o) teasing me with all of the great shops you go to. I'm glad you had a good time..
I've thought about renting space to sell antiques.. I'll bet it's fun. /The only problem would be (for me) to keep in full.
I love your little pillow.
Have a great week. Love my strawberries and Mat.

Looks like it was a great show. I need to find some of these here in Pa. Love the blue hydrangea pic

Oh my, such great and enticing photos! Here I am trying to downsize and then I open your blog and want to jump in the car and head to Brown's Emporium for the day! I'll just have to rely on your pics to satisfy my need for "pretties", at least for the time being:)

I saw you across the "way" at Bingham, but you didn't see me!! :) I was disappointed with the show....and very sad you and Leslie hadn't set up a booth. So many of my favorite vendors weren't there....hopefully they will be next year!

I just caught up with your posts!! That's awesome you're a CASA volunteer now! One of my good buds does that, too. Such a worthwhile group!

Looking forward to seeing you one day soon I hope!! L, Dana
