Thank You Stacy and Traci Some weekend Finds

Just wanted to drop in and say a little Thank You and show you some of my weekend finds.Finally a cooler day here in PA. It has been so hot so today was like a breath of fresh air. Sweet Stacy http://stacykaycreations.blogspot.com/ sent me a surprise just to brighten my day.She wrapped it so pretty and included a handmade card.... Inside were these adorable stitched beeskep and bee tucks....

Stacy so sweet of you to think of me! You really brightened my day...

Traci at http://yorkmountainprimitives.blogspot.com/ did a little surprise drawing on her blog.I had no clue just stopped in to visit her and everyone that left a comment she sent a little prize.I got this little pumpkin pinkeep made by Traci....

Thanks Traci you are always very giving......So saturday I went out saling at little.Things have been busy and hectic here.The corncob incident with Boo cost me over $600 no surgery but a irratated bowel and pain so meds for 10 days and a clingy little dog who is driving me just a tad nuts.LoL..Mung was fine that dog has no problems ever thank goodness as Boo takes any extra money I have every couple of months.Love them like kids though so gotta take care of them...So anyway back to saturday I saw this right away under the table.The man is someone I buy from often and he brings stuff back from Virgina alot so I assume it's from there....Just incredible find I can't believe I got it.Very early public notice board that would have probly been hanging in town hall or court house....Original red paint....

Old slate on top for annoucement.Very weathered burlap across bottom...Look at the writing..

It is so much better in person.Truely a piece of history.I hung it in the living room....

Here are my other keeping finds..Antique large wood dough bowl(I'm addicted to old wood bowls) A early tin hogscraper candle holder I've been looking forever for one of these.This one has some toile painting which I'm going to try to remove..And this hand painted wood bench.The bench was made from a old fruit/melon crate and retains the old labels on the bottom and side...

Look at the all hand painted art work...The tintype photo looks real in person.You can click on to see the details.....

If you wanted to sign up for the doll swap tomorrow morning is the last to sign up.Just click on the top sidebar to sign up and for rules...Hope everyone is enjoying some simple summer pleasures.We went for a long country ride today to visit a friend.This week is our small town carnival so tomorrow we'll probly take the girls and have some carny food for supper.Next week is our towns Good Old Days celebration they have the downtown windows done up with antiques and will have a antique/craft fair in the park.Plus it's free yardsales so the whole town has sales.Hey it's big excitement when you live in a small town..smile...~Amy

Aww poor doggy. I hope he's feeling better. No more corn cobs for Boo.
It's so nice to get the lil surprise gifts from our friends just when we need them. Bless our blog buddies;-)
Awesome old public announcement board. I'd like to have hubby make one of those.
Sounds like lots of fun to be had at all your local happenings. Have fun!
