My new "old" cart

I got this cart at GW outlet 
for $2


I wasn't sure what
 I was going to do with it


I just thought it was cute
but not really into the pink

soooooo

I decided to crackle finish it
I thought copper as the base
 until I put it on and didn't like it at all
way too pink


so a used a brown


since I wanted it aged looking
I wasn't overly careful
in painting


I then put the crackle finish
and once it dried applied
Heirloom White
paint


Viola it started
cracking right away


I had a few flubs
 I had to go over 
but in the end 
that made it 
look more aged






I painted the wheels heirloom
crackle 
then 
ochre color



I don't usually 
like crackle finish
but I thought it
 would look better
as an aged piece



I plan to use it 
to display items
when I have 
my craft booth

Farming...

Last weekend
was beautiful
warm and sunny
The first we stopped
at had a huge barn
filled with goodies





Pumpkin Whoopie Pies



Fried Pies and Pies


of course had apples




they also had a lot of trinkets


Apple Fritters


For some reason
I wasn't enamored with the place
it had a real commercial
feel and the employees weren't overly
friendly - when they short chged
us by $10 there wasn't an apology
just gave us the $10

This next place 
which was right down the rd
was soooooo
much fun!


They had a petting zoo
no this isn't one 
of the pettable ones


A really cool play yard for the kiddos






They ahd a barn with goodies


 isn't this chimera cool?




 They had a spooky room




of course apples




 pumpkins


hayrides


weigh station


inexpensive food


face painting




We had fun watching the kids






we stopped at just a farmer stand








Izzy went with us so
 she was out stretching her legs


Not sure what was so interesting
in the corn stalk





They had a cafe/market




look at those pies


yummmm fudge


 Witch up in the corner


 Even the Munsters were there!
