How do we cram a whole lot of visitin' in less than 3 days?
That's what Cityfarmer Joy and I had to do this weekend!

Thrift store/flea market finds:
REvised, REvamped, REDO's!

1st off, the men folk had work to do, so Don spent all day Thursday and Friday "commuting" via internet to his job in Illinois.
Farmboy had some General Contractoring work to get to, so he was gone all day, both day's, also.
That left Joy and I to head on out to the Trufant Flea Market Thursday, bright and early.

Trufant Flea Market

Found lots of goodies at the market, most of which will be re-vamped and re-fashioned at Joy's worktable back in Illinois.

Cyn, Ang, and Joy

Then, on to a visit with HomemakerAng at her off-grid farm.
We LOVE the vision her and Matt have for this wonderful piece of land.
Can anyone say "Rustic Honeymoon Cottage"?
I can!
Da boys, Farmboy and Don

Joy workin' her magic.

Let me tell you, we had a vision!
All day Friday was filled with fun stuff we did around the farmette.
First, we collected apples from a local orchard at a price that was just too good to pass up.
Joy and her daughter Ang will be puttin' up applesauce this week, for sure!


Joy brought her box of brushes, stencils, stain, and paints and we fussed about the house, tweaking and fluffing.

"Old glass" pumpkins, RE-fashioned from garage sale stryofoam cast-off's.

More crafty stuff goin' on at our farmette.
Ya know, one man's "junk"......

Salt & Pepper Shrimp. Herbed Basmati Rice, Organic Tossed Salad, Pickled Beets
We had to eat, ya know!

Two farm girls, lovin' and enjoyin' their precious few days together.

Joy & Don

Could we have had ANY more fun???

Till we meet again.


Pin It!

Thank-you for leaving a comment on my blog because it enabled me to find your blog! Love your blog. The family , the crafting, the chickens, your faith...everything. I see we are very similar in many ways, and we even have the same breeds of chickens. Isn't it wonderful to be able to meet and communicate with new people via blogging?
