First stop was in Noble at an antique shop called Ripleys. We didn't stay too long there as there was not much that interested me. I did buy a tall basket to hold some hooked rugs and a small doll trunk.
Next stop was Deanna's Architectural Salvage in Ada. Just let me say I didn't even make a dent in this place. Inside alone there is probably 10,000 square feet of 'stuff' to look out. We started looking outside first and still didn't even see all that was outside.

Before heading back to Oklahoma City, we stopped at a garden center that had white pumpkins. Every year I buy white pumpkins and this year I could not find any in the city. Found a neat striped looking pumpkin too.
Thought I would show you what I did at Happy Trails Rug Camp. I have done oxford punch before with Frank so I worked on stuff in the evening after camp was over. I did some of the small ornaments he had given us patterns for. I need to put antlers on the reindeer and a squiggly vine on the pumpkin. Then hangers on them to use them as ornaments. Super quick to punch and plan on doing more for Christmas tags on presents.
And a first for me: My sister-in-law, Danna, is a very talented quilter and decided last year to enter a couple of her quilts in the Oklahoma State Fair for the first time. She won ribbons on them and was so excited that this year she entered again. Well, she talked me into entering a hooked rug. You don't know if you won anything until you go to the fair and look for them in the displays. So on the opening day of the fair we went that evening and started looking for our entries. Well, Jeff was the first to spot mine and guess what...I got a blue ribbon..I was so excited!! So I guess I could say that is one thing off my bucket list...enter something in the State Fair.
