Tater's Crud, Trash Talk, and Trade Days!!!

It's been a long week.
The next time my daughter tell's me to wash my hands before I take "the baby", I think I'm going to tell her that "the baby" needs to wash her hands as well :) I have had "Tater's crud" for the last week and it knocked me down at the knees. I don't often go to the doctor, but did this time......but I'm glad to say I'm on the road to feeling better, and just in the nick of time as this coming Saturday is the Shoppe's Seventh Main Street Antique Trade Days Flea Market I host twice a year.
I totally missed Mother's Day and hope everyone had a wonderful day. I had tons of great pictures of "Mother" items that I didn't share because I just didn't feel good. Still, I have to share this one because I DO love my Mama. This is a patch on my front sidewalk, along with other favorite sayings of mine. My way of fixing the sidewalk without redoing the whole thing. People often stop just to read the concrete :)
And now for the Trade Days........these are fabulous mirrors and frames that I will have for sale. I was fortunate when a previous antique dealer saw me on Good Morning Texas and simply called me to come get these things. I am truly blessed and God is good!

I bought these old planters from her....she was so incredibly generous with her things.

I put this old window picture together with vintage lithos and sheet music......
I adore the colors.

AND THESE are magnificient. I had never seen anything like them, but then that doesn't mean a lot because there is a whole lot I don't know about. Anyway, these are chandelier candleabra covers that have been customed made by dipping them into wax for a real candle appearance....

I fell in love with this old lightening rod....
.I've never been lucky enough to find one with the weather vane still on top.
I would keep it, but I feel certain one of my many mammals would pick it up sideways and run with it like a spear, destroying everyone and everything in it's path...

This old rust utility cart is 2die4......used with vintage tole trays it takes on a whole new use.

And anyone that knows me will wonder why I have blue in my Shoppe.....don't worry, it was just because that was the fabric I pulled out of the stash.
The fever must have been blinding me that day.

Also, some
painted and distressed seed boxes, courtesy of my sweet man.

I also used up the remainder of one of my old photo albums framing old postcards......each is a little work of art and ready to frame.

Then there are
also little bottles of essential oils and cones for the homemade cookies.

I'm gonna share
some of my stash of ribbons this time around as well.

And a little of the lace.
Along with these divine beaded items from the 1920s.

Way cool
garden items......candle holders for the walkway.

A neat "married" cloche display.

And the lamp shades....just look at the lampshades!!!

With a really unique antique wall sconce.

And a few pieces of this'n that.

And this is just a small sampling of what to expect this Saturday. There are 20 other dealers joining in the day of fun. They are predicting rain at a chance of 30%, but to me that means there is a 70% chance there won't be.....right?
The sale starts at 8:00 am with a short awards presentation beginning right before with the presentation of yet another Historic Preservation plaque for my sweet little building.......
I love it when things go right.....don't you?
I am also going to start posting my Quick Project Thursday once a month on the first Thursday of the month.......as the summer gets here, and things get busy outside, there just isn't time to do as much........
Whew, this has been a whole lot to share, but I've been gone, doncha' know!
Thank you for stopping by today.....
I love it when you come....
Wish Me Sunshine!!!!
