the end


to a fun day.  
i took friday off to hit the new glarus city wide garage sales.  new glarus ("america's little switzerland" and home to the new glarus brewery - famous for it's spotted cow brew) is a cute little town about 30 miles south of madison.  many years ago my friend kathy/kate and i had an antique booth in town, started it right when gas price went sky high and folks stopped venturing out for sunday drives so timing wasn't the best.  anywho, thought i would take advantage a beautiful summer day and venture south and visit the old neighborhood. 
on the way out of town i hit a few garage sales in madison and found the coolest vintage screen.


packs up in this handy case


pull the cord up






and ta-dah - it snaps in place and you are good to go.


not sure how old it is, the company is still in business.   


knew i was going to have a fun day when this was one of the 1st things i saw on my garage sale adventure. 

not for sale though.........

summer at elkhorn


my friend jennifer came along with me to see what elkhorn is all about. 
i think she was overwhelmed at all the treasures : )
the weather was beautiful, perfect actually.


 i noticed a theme from the photos that i took at elkhorn -they are all pretty much of vintage signs.
surprise, suprise.



this sign still available, saw it last summer - bit pricey but love it.






here's one of the few non-sign photos that i took at elkhorn.

  of course it would be of a vintage camper.

a teeny tiny camper.

how cute would this be made into a kids playhouse!!!
