My Friday started out with Norm and I having annual eye glasses in the works for both of us. Then off to look for beadboard for my kitchen and still not liking it. Back to that later. Never did get my chance to rearrange things but I still have time this weekend. We hopped on the bike and headed to Shipshewana for the night. We stayed in my favorite campground that has the sweetest little cabins. here is what it looked like.
The bed wasn't the cofiest in this one but I can catch up tonight....right! Oh and keep in mind when we left yesterday it was 86 degrees so I didn't pack a sweatshirt. We got up this morning and had a breakfast bufet that was yummo and walked around Shipshewana. Here is Norm packing away the cover to our bike.
Isn't he so cute! We walked aoround town for a few hours. You wouldn't believe the things I can fit in this bike. Couldn't leave without piking up a few things. Americana doll, new runner, square table top cover and new bonnet.
Remember when I said how hot it was yesterday? Well only 68 degrees on the way home and on a bike that is too cold for me. At least we didn't get caught in the rain. I had to stop and buy a sweatshirt. Off on the bike again tomorrow morning to meet Carmen (PRIMCATS) and Shane Erb at Cabelas!!!! I can't wait! We are heading back to our house for a short and sweet visit cause they have to leave by 3 to continue their trip. 95 degrees tomorrow! See you tomorrow guys! Stay tuned to see what I am using instead of beadboaord :0) Hope your enjoying your weekend. ~~Earlene~~

Todays goodies (some of them)

The days weather was sunny,beautiful and HOT! Just how I like it! Perfect day for a sale...and it was a great sale. Jane and Cheryl know how to put it all together and have fun. Now I know that you want to see my Settee....but you will have to wait cause it needed some tweaking 0:( I know, I was disappointed too but Dick wants to make it right so I have to wait. I promise I will show you when I have it set up. Lucille I didn't get to say good bye before you left, sorry, hope you had a fun day. Here are a few things I picked up today and also silly poses of my cat tonight "Buddy" who loves sleeping on the roof of my car. Oh, and no pictures of the show today, my camera died and my husband looked at it tonight and the new batteries I bought were expired! Dang it...hate it when that he had some new ones so I took these shots tonight. ~~Hope your day was grand~~ ~Earlene~
She greets you as you enter my screened in porch.
A large Twig Skep and Nesting Box...I think for a Wood Duck.
A smaller Twig Skep
Sweet Americana Shelf Sitters too that I found today. 9:00 already! Sittin on the porch cooling off and watching the sun set. Wish you could join me. ~Have a good night~ Earlene

I am so excited about this piece! It was made by Holly Hills Primitives. These are so hard to find, and when I do find one it is already asked Dick if he could make one and OMG I am so happy how it turned out. Dawn did the cover..good job Dawn. What do you think? Can't wait for the weekend! I might try and make another show in Grand Ledge this weekend too. Shows popping up everywhere. TGIF tomorrow ~Earlene~

I have been having internet problems for 3 days now and tonight I hope it is finally fixed. I have missed everyone and have some catching up to do. Now that the days are getting longer too, I spend less time on my computer. Lets face it...I am just too tired to be on it by the time I get in the house. Got my veggie garden planted! 3 kinds of tomatoes, red peppers, chocolate peppers o:), swiss chard, cucumbers and basil. It is a small place so couldn't fit anymore in. I am excited about having fresh tomatoes. Last night we had rain so it is off to a good start. This weekend is a great Old Fashioned Antique sale near my home with 15 vendors. 80 degrees on Saturday so I am sure lots of people will be there. I am picking up a Settle from my friend that was made by her husband so I promise I will post a picture of it Saturday night. I want to put it in my dining room in front of my window. Time to catch up on reading some more blogs so wishing you all a great night...this girl will be asleep by 9:30.
