I'm so excited to tell you what I FINALLY attended.  I've been wanting to go to a Na-Da Farm Event ever since Anne Marie started having them, so my daughter-in-law and I headed out to go see what we could find.  I found her blog way back and have been following her ever since.  I was also excited to meet a blogger who's blog I follow, and I'm not even sure how I had found her, probably from Anne Marie's blog.  Traci takes the most beautiful photo's and she's also from my home state of Illinois.  I still call Illinois my home state as I was born and raised there.  It was wonderful chatting with you Traci and I'll see you in the spring, and next time I'll remember the syrup ;)






Here are just some of the items I found, and each one has a place and purpose in my home.

Small quilt

Wire baskets

The next few items I found on our way home.  The strawberry is a cookie jar and is not old, but I liked it since I have always loved strawberries, especially when I was a teenager I collected them.  I'm using this to keep the coffee grounds in.  I just put them in a zip-lock bag to keep the grounds fresh.  The bread box I'm not sure if I've ever posted about, I can't remember when I found that, but I do keep our bread in it.

I fell in love with this retro cart.  I use my bread machine all the time to make my bread dough and I just don't have any room on my counter for it.  This cart jumped out at me and it fits perfectly where I put it and I can keep our dehydrator on the bottom.

If you ever get the chance to attend a Na-Da Farm Event you will not be disappointed.

I can't wait to go in the spring.
