Why, oh why is it that when I actually remember to pack the camera in the car and I’m all set to take photos, that the “blankety-blank” camera starts beeping at me and displays the following message across the screen- “Time to change the batteries.” Aaaack!!
It happened to me today when I was shopping at the fantabulous “Lost Creek Garden and Antique Show” outside of Troy, Ohio. The show was held on private property, with the admission price going to charity. The property was beautiful- lush trees and flowers throughout the yard, brick out-buildings, a century old farmhouse….
But who has but just a few pictures of it all because she didn’t pack back-up batteries? Moi! I got off a few pictures before the camera screen faded to black.
I wandered the grounds for several hours, visiting booth after booth of primitives, antiques, garden ornaments, plants, and artisan crafts. To say that I was in heaven is an understatement. You know my addiction to shopping for these kinds of things!
These hitching posts would be a conversation piece in many a garden. Love the little sign… So who of you needs a hitching post for your husband? *grin*
Designs such as these are examples of the types of greenery available for sale. I would have loved to have bought multiple planters to take home for the patios. But I remembered that there’s that simple, little matter of the brown thumb I possess. Those plants could all be dead within a month…..
I am seriously coveting this old door. The vendor is an acquaintance of mine- Nancy Thomas. She’s the one I drove 40-some miles to shop at her yard sale a couple of weeks ago.
Nancy sells her wares at numerous shows in the area. In fact, she’ll be in Tipp City on June 26 for the Tipp City Street Fair. Some of you may remember I found lots of goodies at that show last year! See that post here.
I’m going to tidy up my stash of purchases and get things organized before I post them. Just wanted to show you where I spent the majority of my day. Right now, I’m waiting for the batteries to finish charging so I can get started on my picture-taking. And you can be sure I’ll be putting some fresh batteries into the camera case so I’ll be ready for my next excursion!
