Farm country finds . . .




We got an early start this morning.  The back roads through Missouri are so beautiful.  There is one farm after another and wonderful old barns popping up over every rise in the road . . . .











I think the red ones are my favorite . . . . .











And I love these little farms towns with their huge grain elevators right in the middle.  This is where we hope to pick up some more fun things.








And find things we did!!  That's a really nice 1800's, 12 tin pie safe in good condition and some great architectural stuff! And you have probably noticed all the little chairs we're finding.  It's a good thing because we had none left in the store!










 Wonderful old churches in these towns too!












Our last stop here and we come away with some more great things.  Our trailer is filling up quickly and we still have some exciting places to go . . . . . .









All the water and green, green grass . . . . . I wish I could bring some of that back with us too!!!


Of course I guess there is a down side to all that water . . . . . . .



An antique flea market in the rain was not a very successful stop.  Most everyone had their tables covered with tarps so we didn't get to see much and we didn't have the time to wait for the rain to stop.  Maybe next time . . . .

The good news is, tomorrow is our favorite barn sale and we are guaranteed to find a lot of really great treasures there . . . . . we'll see you then!!!
