Last Saturday was the annual Clayson Farms American Primitives show outside of Naches, Wa. This is one that Tania and I attend every year---except I think Tania was sick last year and we missed it! It's held on the beautiful grounds of an old farmstead. I wonder how long it takes for the grass to recuperate from the pounding it takes from the thousands (or many, many hundreds) of visitors on this one day?!
Every year we are hopeful that they'll allow a tour of the old house. From peeks thru windows, we can tell it would be an awesome tour! But so far it hasn't happened. And who can blame them---would you want hundreds of people tromping thru your house?!
Everywhere you turn are intrigueing displays of treasures.
Below is a long shot of a central booth and lots more that line the perimeter of the yard. All around the edge of the lawn is a stream---probably irrigation run-off. And the landscaping around it is gorgeous. I'm afraid I didn't get a shot of it, except for a couple of photos on down further. I kept slipping my camera back in my purse while shopping and forgetting to get it back out!
|I was intending to get a shot of all the cute chickens and didn't realize till I uploaded the pictures that I captured the guy in the mirror! He'd be tickled, I'm sure! See that cute chicken on the left with measuring spoons for tail feathers? Cute!|
This booth had LOTS of stenciled signs and linens. Just thought this was in interesting grouping.
