Saturday morning I went to a primitive and antiques sale at the Red Barn. Have to tell you this was my kind of sale! Lots of old worn rusty primitive stuff! I guess they have sales once a month from April through October. I will be waiting anxiously for when they start up again next year. Here are some treasures that I got!!
Hog Scraper, Early crock jug, Miner's lunch box and 3 spindles.
Here's my spindles after hubby cut them for me. Can't wait to use these to make some make do's!
Then on Saturday Hubby and I did some hiking around on the trails at Blackhawk State Park. This place has the most amazing huge oak trees. I didn't like the way my pictures turned out because I left my polarizing lens at home. So I went back again today and got some amazing shots. And it seems the leaves have turned more since then too! It was a gorgeous day. I think it was close to 70º.
I think these are some short of wildflower. The bees and little green flies were all over them.
Do you ever just look up when you are under a tree? Amazing isn't it?!!
I don't know what these flowers were, but they were kind of stinky. Pretty, but stinky LOL
Some very cool fungus growing on a old dead tree.
Don't ya just love all the colors here!!!
And here's a statue of Chief Blackhawk who the park was named after. He was the leader of the Sauk American Indian tribe who were in this area a very long time ago.
