Canton was Hot!

I'm back! Great 4th of July weekend
at Melinda's lake house!
Yes, I did go to First Monday Trade Days
in Canton.
Yes, it was over 100 degrees.
Yes, I was very hot.
Yes, it was worth it.
We bought some trim and ribbon right off and then made our way to the back
to the big air conditioned barn! And after buying the wee little doll
pictured further down, I rounded a corner to see "my kind of booth" and thought
this looks like Willow Nest! And...sure enough - it was!
Please know that the bird fan I'm holding is NOT from Linda/Willow Nest, nor did I buy it anywhere.... Linda's husband handed it to me and I said I'd just hold it for the picture...looks pretty! I did see the booth that was selling it later... should've taken a picture of them.

I visited Willow Nest's booth at Zapp Hall in Warrenton last October and her friend that was managing it didn't want me to put any pictures of it on my blog....

so that's why you haven't seen it before on here.

Anyway..... I mentioned Silver Bella to her....and guess what!

She's going to be a vendor!

How exciting is that!

Seems Carol of Raised in Cotton has told her all about it and got her to come.

Anna .... see I do use that bag you gave me!

I didn't buy much.... it reallllllly was hot!! Below is all I got, but you and

I know that the joy is in the hunt!

Melinda and I got these glasses in Canton, too.

Did you love these vintage pictures at the top?

You should visit Full Table.
Be prepared to spend some time there.

Can't believe you went without me. Let's go this fall when it's cool out! I'll need lots of Christmas stuff for the house.

Thanks for your visit and comment--can't wait for Silver Bella too. We are both so busy with our swaps. Whew.
Canton is indeed hot, hot, hot, but you made it look comfortable and fun. Thanks for the tour.
