My late Aunt Jane and Uncle Ivo's estate sale was this past Saturday. My head is swirling with thoughts about that. We did come home with some things that are treasures to me. More about that in a post soon to come. I promise. Especially since I am pretty excited about some of my finds.
Sunday we went to the Heritage Festival in Columbia, MO. Our friends, Bernie, The Osage Bluff Blacksmith, and his wife, Patti, the Osage Bluff Quilter, were there, demonstrating the almost lost art of Blacksmithing.
|The Blacksmith had quite a crowd watching the embers fly as he hammered and pounded red hot mounds of iron into things like forks, dinner bells, crosses, and all sorts of things.|
|Patti had her hands full answering questions and selling the wares. I hope they had a successful couple of days.|

Jim bought this torture hook. He claims he will be using it to turn meat on the grill. Uh huh.
When we left the festival, we decided to head 15 miles or so up the road to Clark, MO. Patti was telling us there is an Amish community there that sells furniture, wonderfuol baked goods, and stuff. Even though we knew they would be closed on a Sunday, we decided to take the short drive before heading home. We were glad we did.
|Scenic drive to Clark, MO. |
We must have hit the returning home from church services traffic. Buggies were everywhere.
|I'm pretty sure Ida and Eula didn't know these grass mowers were on the wrong side of the fence. |
They didn't look like they planned on going past the green, green grass of home.
|I'm pretty sure Mr. Stinkeye here is saying he hopes everyone has a wonderful week!|
