Mount Dora Extravaganza

I have spent the last couple of days in the craft room working on a commissioned order, so I thought I would take a short break and reflect on my recent holiday.  These photos are of the Rennigers Antique Extravaganza at Mount Dora.  It is truly a site to behold with each stall holding as much treasure as the next and going on for what seemed like miles.  It was difficult to stay focused, I wanted everything I saw.  In the end I bought vintage patterns ( 2 of which are wedding dresses), vintage buttons, a 1935 embroidery book, vintage shoe trees which I intend to use for my daughters wedding next year,  ribbons and material and my wonderful husband treated me to a handmade quilt sign which has taken pride of place in my craft room.  I will give you a sneak peek into the craft room in a later post.  I also bought from my friend Jone on the Street of shops a vintage rolling pin and gingerman cookie cutter for my kitchen which at the moment is a work in progress.  Back to work......
