Abundance of Autumn: Harvest Day at The Lamb's Tail Antiques

The weekend began with temperatures in the low 80's on Friday afternoon where I live. By 8 o'clock that evening it had dropped to the 60's. The remainder of the weekend weather was decidedly fall. It was the ideal time to go to a harvest festival. At 10:00 Saturday morning that's exactly what my good friend and I did! One of our beloved places to shop is in a small town about thirty minutes from where I live. The Lamb's Tail Antiques in Armada, Michigan is housed in a red barn that is quite literally "filled to the rafters" with all the types of needful things I like...

Handmade, re-purposed, french country, primitives,
antiques, locally harvested botanicals, pumpkins and gourds,
 bittersweet, Sweet Annie, local honey and specialty tea blends...
sigh... I declare... it's a little slice of heaven!

The fabulous finds my good friend Angie and I left with.


Now that it's Thursday and another soccer-free weekend, I know where I'd love to be going....
If you're in the area stop by The Lamb's Tail Antiques and tell Bonnie hello for me!

Have a great weekend!


P.S. Here are a few more pictures of the cute things I bought last weekend....

I bought this vinatage wool blanket at Harvest Day 2009.

Round scrabble tile necklace, $6...I know, 6 bucks!

Colorful long skinny scarf, $17.50

Re-purposed purse/tote made from a man's woolen suit coat, $29

Karley,
You'd absolutely LOVE this shop! I've been waiting for the sun to pop out so I can snap a few pictures of the other goodies I bought:
A tote bag/purse made from a wool men's suit jacket, a colorful scarf and a round scrabble tile necklace. Stay tuned, I'll post later!

Have a pleasant afternoon,
Deanna
