Heading Out to the Madison Bouckville Antique Markets



This morning I played with my chicken crate ...



I still haven't decided what to do with it or where to put it...



Mr. Flea hasn't seen it yet...
...and if I don't figure out what to do with it soon...



I may be bringing it to Brimfield!
...but I really love it....
...and thank you for your great ideas and suggestions as to how to use it!



This evening, as I get my gear ready to head out to Madison Bouckville tomorrow morning...

...I am thinking about my girlfriends Paula, Carole and Deanna and about how much fun we had this weekend last August...

You may remember our hilarious escapades last year as we spent two days at the show...

You can click HERE and HERE and HERE for last year's posts about the show...




I wasn't sure I would make it this year...
...but my Mom is holding her own and she and Dad are shooing me off for the day.
( We're so grateful for all your prayers and well wishes...)

Of course, the main event doesn't open until the weekend...
...but I know that there will be plenty for me to see at all the peripheral markets that set up ahead of time...

If you have the opportunity to go sometime this week...don't miss it!



I think I'm getting a little excited!

Love that chicken crate and it would look great in my kitchen with the wood finish to my French chest and table! I love the gypsy like feel to it soooo! Boho-chic!

The wire basket also remind me of my rusty ones on my latest post. We have the same design taste for euro flea market style.

Loved my visit here.
inspired :)

I have a friend with a chicken coop. She put a thick piece of beveled glass over it that overhangs about 6" all around and it is a very fun coffee table. I just love it!
