War Eagle Craft Fair – Part 1

War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 084I was invited to go to the War Eagle Craft Fair at War Eagle, AR with Pete and Liz, Anna Grace, Ruth Ellen, and Dan. We met on the mountain at 7:00 and headed out in two cars. We stopped in Russellville and got breakfast and then when up to the Fayetteville area. When we got close it was something to see. we were on a bluff looking down at the valley below and there were 100’s of vehicles and tents and buildings and people everywhere!!! It really was amazing. I haven’t seen that many people since I left Silver Dollar City.  People everywhere. We got there pretty early considering and got parking places on the front of row 4. But there were acres of parking places. We shopped and browsed and bought. We left about 2:30 and went to another craft show in a hotel. That one was huge, also. We shopped until late and ate supper before we left the area. It was a fun, but really tiring day. I’m glad I went with friends.War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 100War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 099War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 098War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 105War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 104War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 103War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 102War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 101War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 050War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 049War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 048War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 047War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 046War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 051War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 052War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 051War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 063War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 062War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 061War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 060War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 059War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 058War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 057War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 056War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 055War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 048War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 053

Susan’s Fall Flowers

War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 027Some people just have green thumbs. I don’t have anything in my yard blooming and this past week when I went to Susan’s for a meeting. Her yard was in full bloom. Mums, azaleas, pansies, roses and flowers I haven’t even seen before. It was fun watching the bumble bees go from flower to flower. Maybe when I can retire I can plant some stuff. I could plant it now, but you must have time to water. LOL! flowers 1flowers 2

Framing an Antique Watercolor

painting 001Yesterday I bought an old photograph in an oval gold frame. I didn’t want the photo I wanted the frame. Today, I took it apart and used it for one of my Victorian watercolors. It is a woman with a snooty look and a green hat. I hated the diamond-shaped mat it had on it.  I look out for frames for small old watercolors. I try to find something close that would have been in that time period. This frame is probably around 1960. The label on the frame had the phone number as: FR 4-o723.  The price old the frame was originally $15.50. Yesterday, I bought it for $8.00. Still a deal for today’s prices. Do a search on here for other Victorian watercolor posts.painting 010watercolor 1paiting watercolor 2

What to do with a Silver-plated Toast Server

What to do with a Silver-plated Toast Server? Simple. Buy it, polish it, put it on a glass tray so it won’t scar the coffee table and put coasters in. Then use the coasters.toast holder 002toast holder 003toast holder 004

Roy Dudley’s Sale this Weekend

woodburneed bed, baskets, CAQ 048We went to Roy Dudley’s Sale this weekend in Little Rock. It was at the warehouse and had lots of things to look at.  I got an oval frame with an old photograph that had been touched up and colored. I’ll give that photo to Pat. She likes old pictures of old people. The woman is kinda spooky looking. But, she had to be someone’s mother or they wouldn’t have had the photo done. It’s was probably dome in the 1960’s, because the frame had a tag from a frame shop in Little Rock that had FR3 as the prefix to the number. I can barely remember the letters in phone numbers.  The frame is in great shape. I’ll put an antique watercolor in it. I bought a toothpick holder, a silver-plated spoon, a toast server,  a clear glass heart paperweight, and a huge cut glass bowl. The bowl could be used as a small punch bowl or a large fruit bowl. Neat finds.Rd 1woodburneed bed, baskets, CAQ 051
