It's the craziest yet most wonderful thing...
You wouldn't expect to find these things in a hardware store, would you?
Horton's of Tipton (Indiana, on Main Street next to the courthouse) hosts French Flea Markets in the summer and Autumn Markets in the fall.
Oh, what a beautiful day we had for this.
Horton's is not too far from me and I love to visit the little town of about 15,000 people.
I have been looking for ice skates to decorate the front porch for the Christmas holidays. I purchased these - the grey ribbon made me extra happy!
Aren't the witch hats great! They reminded me to change my blog header as I had prepared a fall header with a witch hat on it.
Aren't old bottles the best?
Someone worked hard on this pretty embroidery.
I wouldn't have thought to wrap lace on clothespins. It's a great idea!
Painted frames and bobbled glassware are oh, so pretty!
Here's a cute little lady resting her tired legs.
I have seen shapes cut out of cream paper with letters and music paper. This inspired me to cut out some leaves to decorate my house for fall. I'll show them to you soon.
I LOVE this...
Owls are really popular these days. These were so cute
and these too!
Lots of lace and ribbon can be found in this hardware store.
So much eye candy!
This red truck towel reminds me of Carol of Art and Sand. Her husband, Steve, has painted trucks like this one.
Of course there were beautiful flowers
and BINGO cards!
Here's a gold mine...I really love this stuff!
And Scrabble letters. I have some but want more...I want...I want...
pearled mercury glass
I have got to tear up some cream fabric into strips and tie them up somewhere. right. now.
Chandeliers make me happy.
I have a couple old drawers and this inspires me to hang them on a wall.
I just stood and looked at this vignette for awhile to take it all in.
This picture makes me think of my little grandson. Babies don't wear these shoes anymore, do they?
I could have taken a million more photos while there. In fact, there was a tablescape demonstration by two very talented ladies that day and I have more pictures to share about that. I have many posts planned to publish. This time of the year makes it very easy for bloggers to find things to write about with all the beautiful colors and events going on.
Karen, the propreitor of Horton's of Tipton does a great job with her special events, don't you think? I hope you can visit some time!
