Friday’s Fences: Fun Day With A Friend

You may recall a post I shared a few months ago about a wedding keepsake shadow box I made for my former classmate, Donna. If you missed it, you can read about it here.

Last Saturday, Donna and I met in the little town of Surry for a farmers’ market/yard sale. This just happened to be directly across the street from the floppy-eared horse that I wrote about a few weeks ago.

So, our first order of business was visiting “Ears”, as we’ve dubbed him, and giving him a few treats.

Then we went over to the park, where we both bought homemade pound cake loaves. And had a mutual friend take our picture.

I have to tell you: when I saw her hair in pigtails, I immediately felt like a little girl again.

When we left there, we went to an antique/junk shop, where I bought this “ice cream parlor” chair (for $10). Later, Motor Man helped me make it into a planter.

Donna also bought a couple of vintage chairs. Since I was driving Motor Man’s truck and we weren’t that far from her house, we headed down some back roads to deliver her treasures.

On the way, we passed this scene, which of course, required a u-turn for a Friday’s Fences photo.

Treasures safely delivered to her house, we returned to Surry where we had lunch at an Italian Restaurant and bought plants at Farmer Joe’s Nursery and Greenhouse.

It really was a fun day with a friend; we’re already planning our next adventure.

Linking up to Friday’s Fences.
