Road Trip

A few weeks ago, my Mom & I went out to Ohio to visit my sister. The excuse for going was that there was a Springfield Antiques Show & Extravaganza (a Country Home Antiquing Festival) that weekend and I've been wanting to go. I went to college out there and I had no idea that it was there the whole time. I don't know how I missed that. But I thought it sounded interesting and it would give us an excuse to go on a trip to see my sister.

The show was good. There was a decent amount of people there and I was pleasantly surprised that the prices weren't too bad. There are lots of other antique shops in Springfield, but sometimes they can be pricey. There's plenty of antiquing to do, though.

I bought a few things, and to be honest, would have willingly bought more if we had had enough brains to bring more cash and a pickup. Oh well. Perhaps it was better that we didn't.

A planter that my sister found & we bought for a gift for Mom. I love it!

A little stool for me. Isn't it cute? A whole $10.
I bought this necklace and chain. I liked it,
but I suppose it might very well be from W*lM*rt.

We decided that my sister needing matching flip flops too.

We splurged on pancakes with whipped cream & strawberries.
We found spray batter in a can (like a whipped cream).
What's up with that? I've never seen such a thing before.
It was organic something-or-other from Dorothy Lane Market.


Evie - the softest, most friendly dog ever. I just can't resist kissing her.

I bought this for $6 at Hobby Lobby, which is one of my favorite stores. I miss that store.

Too bad there aren't any in the state of PA! Or maybe that is better.

Anyway, I don't know where to put it, but I love it.

There were a bunch of geese and their chicks around her apartment.

Cute, no?

Looks like you had lots of fun. Love that little bench. And the batter in a can -- very weird -- I'll be on the lookout for that!
