It was a M.U.D. kind of day for me

I am a state employee so I was mandated to take 5 unpaid days from December to June. So today I started the holiday weekend a little early and spent money I wasn't earning! Happy MUD day to me!!
Cross Creek (Simply Iowa Blogspot) in Fairfax has a holiday weekend show so I took off bright and early for a round of junking and antiquing.

Had a little thrill before I got there though. I had just gone pass the interstate and was going down the road when I noticed a car driving in the left lane???? I thought kids playing.... after a couple of hills and miles they were still driving on wrong side and I was horrified! Next thought was elderly couple confused..... I stayed well back and prayed for everyone.
The good Lord heard me and when they got to the first little town I sped up got them in the right lane and then followed them into the gas station. It was a foreign couple evidently used to driving on the opposite side......they had gotten off the interstate and were confused! I made short work of getting the heck out of their way and off to the sale.

Barb and her friends have worked hard all week and late into last night to ready the merchandise....

A very special Mad Hatter Table

Barb's shop is so full of wonderful nooks and crannies...

No matter how many times I walked through I saw something new.....
Thanks for a wonderful time today Barb and Friends!
I will think of you when I am making treasures from my fabulous finds!
