Antique and Craft Finds

My WDH and I have been to several craft and antique shows lately. I thought I'd share pictures of things I found, and just couldn't leave behind!
The Lenexa Community Center show is always a great show and it didn't disappoint. I visited my friend Dana's booth, The Stone Rabbit! Her blog address is listed below. Visit it and you will find it delightful! I had to have the darling snowman and a pumpkin that had a Give Thanks tag on it!
The wool table runner, heart pillow and snowman pillow were from Shirley, The Wool Lady's booth. Her wool projects are exceptional and I'm lucky to have many of her pieces.
We also went to The Church of the Nazarene's craft show in Lenexa. I'd never been to this show and it was fantastic! I purchased a little paper folded wreath, and then my name was drawn for a door prize that had 4 more wreaths in varying sizes! I also got a sweet little moose and my WDH bought the pretty nativity woodcut.
A few weeks ago my WDH and I went to an antique show in Lawrence with friends Janet and Wayne from Topeka. We try to go to this show every year and we always find a few goodies. I got the two wooden boxes there, and also the darling Singer needlework case. Isn't it cute?? I wonder if it's a child's, or a saleman's model. I'm going to store antique needlework items in it to display.
I'm very pleased with all of my purchases.........we both love to scout out the antique and craft shows......the anticipation of what we will find is always fun!


  1. Love that Singer box/case. You and Jerry have been busy going places now that he is retired. Fun things you are doing together.

  2. It was so nice seeing you last Fri. evening! You came home with some wonderful buys!

    Bonnie and I went to Gr.wood and The Square in Independence yestereday for their open houses. We were also out and about today. I'm zonked from all of this fun! I'm also trying to get ready for the Craft Patch at the Pavilion in December.....and I'm doing a little Christmas decorating!

    Have a lovely weekend! Dana
