Family Vacation

We went to Minneapolis for a family vacation this year.  And because my husband is such a huge movie fan, we kept humming "Holiday Road" from National Lampoon's Vacation and making comments like, "Sorry folks, park's closed.  Moose out front should've told you." the whole way there.
It was a fun trip. 
Here are the goodies I picked up on our adventure....which included visits to the Mall of America, Stitchville USA, Como Zoo and Conservatory, and a flea market in Medina MN.

Picking a favorite item is difficult.  I love the little Whitman books and paint box I found at the flea market and the Apple/pear pie server that matches my little casserole dish that I found at an antique store.  Finding a book all about vintage gas stations filled with neat-o photos and advertisements of gas and oil companies was a Barnes and Noble!  And yup, that's Black Jack and Beeman's chewing gum.  Found that at a candy store.

I found this at the flea market for about the price of a soda pop.  This kind of needlework is so interesting to me.  Tiny little cross stitches in bright and beautiful colors.  I was so happy to find this one and give it a good home!

Items found at the Antique Mall in Moorhead MN...a stop we make every time we are in the Fargo/Moorhead area.  The folks who own/run the place are always so friendly!  But I do wonder if I maybe got two peppers in the pears or two salts.
