sweet country shopping in okotoks

a couple of weeks ago johnny b. good and i headed off to okotoks via the back roads.  it was a rainy, misty kind of day which makes for soft and saturated photos. 

"All Through The House", were hosting their infamous country fall market.  Their shop is fabulous on it's own, but when they invite their favourite pickers and dealers to set up on their property, well that makes for a REALLY fabulous day in the country.

weathered, chippy and rusty!  all my favourite colours, hee hee!

there was tons of delicious goodies everywhere

sunny miss bonnie, was looking so chic in her woolens!

simple country flowers are best

i got all sorts of goodies from this cutie 

they had a great turn out, despite/because of the weather

sparkley jan, had her booth full of her hand made vintage goodness.

these shoes were to small, otherwise they would have been MINE

sparkle jan hamming it up

these are the things i scooped that day

and here's what i did with the dried hydrangeas

i love them, they look great with the dried artichoke

and the school locker baskets hold my ribbons in my sewing room

2  vintage silver jewelry thingys made by 2 bragg creek makers

 the beautiful necklace was made by sue stevens of "Hot Rocks Glass Jewels"  just for me.  i supplied some sentimental bits and bobs and ta da, look what she created!   i absolutely love it soooo much. 

the silver ring was a spoon, it's the most comfortable thumb ring i've ever had.  marina, from "A Little Forked Up" makes a whole line of jewelry from vintage flatware.   also, best name EVER.

I love this time of year, there are so many country markets, antique shows and such.  Then it's Christmas market time.   Just a little reminder to save the date for  the The Vintage With Flair, Christmas Market.   It's THE BEST CHRISTMAS MARKET BECAUSE I"M IN IT!  

Saturday, November 8th,  Red Deer Lake Community Hall.

be there or be square,
