Well, I loved Iowa. I'm showing pictures of our booth at the Midwest Antique and Decorative Arts Show in Cedar Rapids. I hadn't been to Iowa since I was a kid going to my Aunty June's! The show was just OK for us. But....the whole area was under Winter Storm Watch and Warnings so I'm sure that played a part in the traffic at the show. And, yes, Scarlett, you were right, the white painted breakfast set sold right at show opening and is headed to a cottage in Minnesota! We stopped at Sisters Garden and Bloom. I have pictures for another post. I LOVED everything about those shops! Met Elaine, kept her overtime and she was a pleasure. Can't wait to go back and will certainly allow more time for shopping. Barb was going to meet us on Monday but I thought we'd better get out of there before bad weather got worse! Also had time to go to the Amana Colonies. We love old historical buildings and I have alot of those pictures for another post as well! Hope you enjoy the show------ I bought this quilt while in Iowa. I love the blue colors.
I hate going to the dentist, but I love this old spooky dentist chair, right out of our town of Alton, Illinois!
My work counter is in the right hand corner! Very useful for wrapping.
Who doesn't love rag dolls!
I had to have this rag doll, I'm naming her Mary Jane because she is guarding her bowl of Mary Jane candy!
Grandma Bertha had blue hydrangea bushes!
We'll be going back to Iowa for the next show in September. It will be better I'm sure!
