Our Antique Road Trip

Well, my husband and I and Mary, took off for Mount Dora on Saturday.  It was hot, humid, but it didn't rain.
We all found lots of stuff we wanted, but since we took the car, had to limit ourselves.  We are planning a return trip this fall, when it is a little cooler.
 Mary and I, looking at some junk
 They had some great primitive booths.
 Mary, with her first purchase, for $3.00
 Some of the outside of the shops
 This was my first buy, an old wooden ironing board, great for display.  I had been looking for one and they were all too expensive.  My favorite item.
 An old cutter quilt and a step ladder to use for displaying also.
 Next time we are taking the truck, and alot more money, great buys.  My husband bought some kind of sword or dagger and a helmet.  He wanted a 5 foot crosscut saw, but we didn't have room for it.

I also made a new doll, this is an old pattern by Katie's Homespun Stitches.
 And another Santa from the Bittersweetfolkarts Pattern, I added more to this one.  I just love this guy, he is almost 30 inches tall.
Hope everyone has a great week, thanks to everyone who entered the give-away and left comments.  Cyndy
