CaLiF. Blogger ~ Visits ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! in CEDARBURG...

What a Pleasant Surprise!*!*!
California Blogger - Cynthia of Beatnheart, shot me an email early Tuesday Morning ~ and just a few hours later, we met for Coffee - in my neck of the woods - CEDARBURG, WISCONSIN...


Neither of us had met in person before - 
only knowing each other via our BLOGS...
We soooo enjoyed Chit-Chat over Coffee at JAVA HOUSE - where, as I've mentioned before - Just Vamp Over that Mirror above the fireplace!*!*!  I'm soooo glad she called, and I was available...  Blogging has changed my life with wonderful experiences such as this...

ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! ShoPPing ~ M*I*C*H*I*G*A*N

~** Michigan **~  
R*O*A*D   T*R*I*P
 *E*A*R*L*Y Friday Morning, Frog Husband & I hit the road
 for a 3-Day ShaBBy-ShoPPing Spree in Michigan...
As you can see ~ By Sunday Evening - the SHABBBY VAN
was quite F*U*L*L... 



One of our **Main ShoPPing Stops**
  Neither of us had shopped this Market before...



 I could hardly believe my eyes when I spotted
 this Dealer's Booth!*!*!
OMG!*!*! ~ OMG!*!*!
Jackie definitely had my taste when it comes to a
 "Natural" time-worn chippy patina!!!
I was vamping over her booth for at least a good hour
 while she was setting up ~
and did I ever find the SHaBBies here!!! 




 Yet ANOTHER - OMG!!! ~Just FaB,  Over-The-Top Booth
BUTTER BEANS ANTIQUES...
It was such a pleasure to meet *AMY & BRAD*
Just darling couple and business partners!*!*!
And what "An-Eye" Amy has for SHaBBies!*!*!
I most certainly made quite a haul in their booth!!! 









This pic and the following are SHaBBy SighTinGs from the Market...



















 I was so surprised to SEE Polly Hood's Booth at Allegan!!!
Her darling Husband, was "holding down the fort" - ALL BY HIMSELF,
 while Polly stayed home!!!  He did an incredible job setting
 up the eye-catching displays!*!*!








are regular vendors at ALLEGAN...
Talking with my *Frog Husband*...










 I LoVed ShoPPing this Market!*!*!
NO TUBE SOCKS -or- SPICES HERE!!!
The grounds were just lovely with lots of Shade Trees...
EASY to navigate & make runs to the van..

It reminded me of THE SANDWICH ILLINOIS MARKET - 
Year's Ago, but on a smaller scale...
V*I*N*T*A*G*E Items in abundance!!!
Primitives
Antiques
Industrial 
Shabbies
only wish it wasn't that far of a drive from Wisconsin...
But Jackie & Amy's BOOTH'S Would definitely make it worth the drive!!!

P*E*A*C*H Pie and BiRdieS!*!*!

A*U*G*U*S*T
Is National PEACH Month!*!*!

OMG!*!*!  Our Pie was/is just DeLiCiouS!!!
I found time on Sunday Afternoon to bake this delight!!!
In honor of Marion Cunningham
 (who recently passed away at the age of "90") 
Author of the FANNIE FARMER COOKBOOKS...
Both her recipes for "Basic Pie Crust" & "Fresh Fruit Peach Pie" 
are sooooo "E*A*S*Y to make and bake...





 With B*I*R*D*E*S being one of my weaknesses,
 I "snagged" this 
1950's ViNtaGe BiRdiE TableCloth
 at the Elkhorn Flea Market a couple weeks ago...
I've NEVER seen this pattern before...
What - A - Beauty!*!*!




I'll have some time today to "freshen" up the house
 with just a "hint-of-fall"...  Even though we have many an
 Indian Summer Day to come, 
F*A*L*L is just around the corner!*!*!
