It’s been forever since I’ve done a blog post. I have a million excuses but I’m sure you’re all tired of hearing them, so I’m just going to move on!
Donna and I went on a road trip over to Spokane a couple weekends ago. I wanted to check out The Mad Hatter Sale that Junebug was putting on and I had some other things on my list of “things to do in Spokane” that I needed to check out.
We highly recommend stopping here if you’re passing through Cashmere for any reason at all. I promise when you leave this bakery you will be going home, remodeling your kitchen to a French Country theme, then bustin out that Julia Childs Mastering French Cooking cookbook you bought at Costco.
Once arriving in Spokane,
Donna and I had to go check out Frank’s Diner for dinner.
Set inside an old diner train car, the ambiance is really fantastic. The food is good and I think everyone should make at least one stop at Frank’s while in Spokane.
I had the hot turkey sandwich.
From there we ended up at the Northern Quest Casino where we both LOST OUR ……………
Well let’s just move on. That my friends, is a part of the trip we shall never speak of again!
You know I got “the problem” right?"
Saturday morning we were up bright and early so we could make our way to
Held at the 5 mile Prairie Grange
They had it fixed up all cute.
Check out Auntie Joy’s Blog for some really great pictures of the sale.
I thought this was an excellent use for a baby bassinet…….packed full of Chocolate Zucchini Bread for sale.
Your hostesses with the mostest
This is some of the pumpkin bisque soup that had seasoned popcorn in it. OH MY GOD!!!! It was like crack! We just wanted to go back over and over.
My other favorite was the Zucchini Bisque Soup with a sticky rice, sage, huckleberry dumpling in it.
I’m not kidding! It was so stinkin good.
As I’m typing this I wish I had some.
Junebug herself with the Queens of the fantastic food Lynn and Sherry.
They really did a great job!
After the leaving The Mad Hatter Show we headed to the highly recommended, must see, don’t miss, everyone should go here………………………..
I saw pictures of this fabulous store in Mary Jane’s Farm Magazine. So I had to see it for myself.
A great Farm Chicks Display
I had such a great time at this store in addition to finding A LOT of treasure that came home with me.
I’m thinkin maybe Come Junk With Us should do a Junk Junket here.
After a day of shopping Donna and I went to Chaps for dinner, where we met
one of The Funky Junk Sisters Dixie.
The food was fabulous as usual, the company was even better. It was so much fun getting to visit with these ladies (and husbands) outside of the antiques sales where we usually see each other.
It was just a nice change.
So a Timi Road Trip can’t ever be without some sort of problem. This trip wasn’t an exception.
Donna and I were headed out of town and sure enough
This is the fastest way back home which is what we were planning on.
So it was back to HWY 2 to go out around the dust storm.
What looks like white clouds is really the dust storm
It took 4 hours longer than it should have and it was the most boring drive EVER! Not since driving across Texas have I ever seen so much of NOTHING!
This really was a great trip!
Donna and I had the best time.
I got a lot of great ideas for an upcoming Junk Junket I’m planning.
This last weekend I went to the Sandpoint Antique and Design Show here in the Seattle area. This is the first time I have ever been to this show.
DAMN!! Have I been missin out!
Deb Kennedy’s pictures
It was so fun to meet all the vendors there. I bought this beautiful swanky faux fur vintage coat. Now I’m excited for it to get cold so I can wear it.
If you’re in the area don’t miss the December 6th show.
Have a great day!
