Happy 21 and weekend farmhouse finds...

Today is our 21st wedding anniversary.

We haven't changed a bit (smile).

Saturday morning, the whole family went to the third day of a farm house estate sale where everything was 50% off. 
Specific items needed for Josie's upcoming Western party were crossed off the check list.  These saw horses will be turned into some kind of animal to be used in a lasso contest.

  Chris can also use the saw horses on his never-ending construction projects.

A couple of hats and a horse scarf will be used as decorations.

Rusty horseshoes will also be turned into party decor.

This cement fruit urn has nothing to do with the party, but the $3 price tag was perfect.  It's very heavy.  Chris got a workout carrying it to the car and then down into our backyard.  It looks perfect in our shade garden.

The girls felt their tree house needed this pink mailbox.  You never know, secret letters might need to delivered.

These binoculars will also be used for tree house spying.

On Sunday, I ventured to the Allegan Antique market with my mom and sister.  Only a few things came home with me.

This miniature fencing is now around the Gnome house in our toadstool garden.

A vintage western bracelet.

I think the bracelet might end up on my own wrist at Josie's party.

I'm planning on color copying the cover of this 1920s magazine to frame in our sunroom.  The dark-haired little girl reminds me of Josie.

 Lots of great finds this past weekend. I also have all kinds of cowgirl/western party decorations to share over the next few days.  Giddy-up!

PS.   Thank you for my print, Viv. You spoil me so.
