:: My Trip To The Walker Homestead ::

Hello my friends! I have finally had some time to sort through the oodles & oodles of photos that I took on my vacation out East! Today I am posting about my trip to the Walker Homestead Simple Treasures From The Past ~Antiques & Primitive Goods show!

What a wonderful event! I kept pinching myself in disbelief that I was actually there. It was surreal to say the least! Seeing with my own eyes what I had only seen in photos! The atmosphere, the people, the antiques & primitives were all truly amazing!

I am letting you know ahead of time, there are going to be A LOT of pictures in this post. So grab your cup or coffee, hot tea etc. sit back & I hope you enjoy! Good, good times!

The vendors brought some of the most beautiful items I had ever seen! Most of which couldn’t fly home on the plane with me. Boo Hoo! But boy, did I have fun looking!  Come take a walk with me…….

Are you still with me???……. I told you there was so much to see & these aren’t even all of my photos! Walker Homestead is a magical place! What a day…but wait! There’s more!

What made this day even more special was meeting Bonnie in person! We have known each other online for a few years. We both co-owned a magazine together, we have now both left the magazine & taken different paths. Only wonderful & exciting opportunities lie ahead for each of us!  What a joy to finally meet her in person!  Unexpectedly dressed like “twins” no less! :)

Paisley was the pattern of the day!

This photo pretty much sums up how I felt about meeting Bonnie!  ♥
