Antique Alley At Conway Expo Center

Saturday, Glenda invited me to go to Conway to the Expo Center to the antique show. In the misting rain we drove up and parked by the back door. We started going down the rows of vendors. It is always worth the $5.00 fee just to look and see all the different items. Lots of antiques and lots of people. I went in one booth and the dealer said, “I have been waiting on you!” Her name was Mary and she has a booth at Crystal Hills. She brought several petit point pieces for me to look at. I did end up buying 2 small trays. Oh, at the third booth I went in he had a department store shoe stand. Medium oak and in really good condition. I knew I had to have it for the alligator shoes I got from Mama’s estate. I did get a petit point purse that had muted colors. Not anything special. Just an added  purse to my collection.  I found a china doll bell, and a pie server. I had picked up another one at a friend’s sale Friday. I. also, got a small pink glass tray with two handles. It’s going to be a present to a friend that collect pink glass. It was a good day.

W.N.S. – Chicken and Rice Casserole

W.N.S. – Wednesday Night Supper this week was chicken and rice casserole from Sharon Arnhart’s recipe from the Devil Dog Cookbook. I made two large casseroles and fixed carrots, green beans with bacon, brown sugar and butter, and buttered corn. I had a bunch of Colton’s rolls frozen and made them into garlic toast. Aunt Martha made a chocolate and peppermint pie and I made brownies with pecans and chocolate chips. Oh, I used my Dresden Flowers china that I found for $1.00 a plate at the junk store at the foot of Petit Jean Mountain, and TeeTee’s pink goblets. The silverware was the Narcissus sliver-plate Marilyn gave me. I used the floral banquet cloth I made with the antique hankerchief border. Guest were Blake, Cindy, Maggie, and Will, Aunt Martha, Jeff and Karin, Dianna, and me. We had a great visit. Several regulars couldn’t come, so I had plenty of leftovers. So, the kids came by on Thursday night and we had T.N.S.dscn1734

New Quilt Top with Bright Animal Prints

If you know me, you know I forget where I get things. That’s one reason I blog.  I got this fabric and cut it into  three inch strips. Then, I cut it into different lengths. I sewed it all in one row and then sewed the rows together to get the center. I went down to Fran Brewer’s new fabric shop here in Morrilton and got the two zebra prints and the black border fabrics. Well, I sat Friday and put it all together. This is the first top I have made in months. It’s ok. Nothing to put into a quilt show. But, I did accomplish something. What do you think?dscn1755

A Friend’s Sale in Conway

I have a friend in Conway that is working a sale. He asked me to help during the sale, so I went to see what was there. It will be a very interesting sale with lots of good stuff. He told me if there was anything little things I wanted get them. I did find a few little things and he priced them reasonable.  This is what I got: A small bronze statue of David, a crystal ball paperweight, a miniature brief case to hold business cards, a antique plaster frame, and silver-plated napkin rings. The napkin rings match the ones my sister-in-law got from mama’s estate. Now she has enough for the whole family. Oh, I di get a pie server. It’s pictured in another post.
