"It is a token of health and gentle characteristics when women of high thoughts and accomplishments love to sew; especially as they are never more at home with their own hearts than while so occupied." ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne

Craven Farm Tailgate, Snohomish Washington




Had a wonderful time at Craven's Farm Tailgate in Snohomish Washington. Here are just a few of the goodies I found. A wonderful printer's tray, lined with burlap. Pair of sock stretchers...so adorable! Hog scrapers, a sweet little wooden spool, vintage toy rake,a precious tiny whisk broom and a tiny little tin funnel.Purfect finds for my primitive makedo's and pinkeeps!! After the tailgate we shopped in downtown Snohomish. A wonderful shopping destination! My "primitives" sign came from one of my favorite shops,...The Speckled Hen. What a great day!! The sun was shinning, great antiquing, shopping,and visiting with dear friends,.. couldn't ask for more fun!! To top it off we stopped at our local farm stand and purchased a flat of wonderful sweet strawberries, strawberry shortcake sounds pretty yummy right now!!

I love my printer's tray. It is filled with such meaningful treasures. Mine is not burlap lined though, that's neat! You found some wonderful goodies. Sounds like a great day to me!
