We got to Palestine by supper time - I took her to one of our favorite restaurants in Palestine, Switch, where we had one of their brick oven pizzas. I love their pizzas but may I just say the mushroom pizza is probably my new favorite? Yum, yum! It was so so good! We left stuffed and happy.
Friday morning we got up early and drove to Canton. Two Cecilias, Canton, and Junkin' = Loads of Fun!
First on the stop was Laurie Anna's Vintage Home shop. Oh my! So much inspiration, so beautifully decorated.
Next, onto the flea area of Canton. Acres and acres of junkin' heaven. Just about anything you can imagine, you can find.
Rusty, crusty things:
Windows and doors:

And so much more.

|Oh the door, the books in the drawer, that sign! How I wanted that sign.|
We found potential treasure.
We shopped until the vendors started closing down their booths. Happy, we took our treasures back to the car and headed back to the farm. It was definitely a successful trip!
Here's what I bought:
The basket for my garden bicycle, the pulley with the star, a spring, some wooden wheels for a project:
This linen with all the days of the week and cats doing something different on each day (sorry for the less than perfect picture...I'll show it another time after I iron it).
And this green chair for the dining room:
I also picked up this pulley for my friend Susan:
She hung it up on her pergola and plans to use it to hang plants from:
It was really a perfect day with perfect weather to shop. We throughly enjoyed it.
Saturday morning, we took a stroll around the farm. The redbuds and wild plums were in full bloom and the dogwoods are starting to peek out.
Sadly, it was then time to pack and head back. But we left happy with the treasures we'd found and the time spent together. It feels funny saying, "hey, Cecilia! Look at this!" - kind of feels like I'm talking to myself. LOL. But so.much.fun!
I'm so glad Cecilia decided to make the drive to go to Canton with me. It was a blast!
