Foofy, gorgeous, girly, Karen, is also an avid hunter and outdoors woman. She turkey hunts at Rawhide Camp Outfitters
It is in a beautiful setting, on a bluff overlooking a bend in the Missouri River.
And it just so happens to be a hop, skip, and a mini jump, down the road from my favorite flea, at Sparks, KS.
Since flea market season and hunting season do not coincide, she stays at the camp in August to go shopping, and is kind to invite some friends along for the trip. This is my second year there with her and I hope, not the last.
Some Birdsong friends, local and from far away, gathered to enjoy the hospitality of the home. We were all spoiled by Tracy's cooking, did some crafting, some shopping, lots of laughing, and maybe drank a bit of wine...
Angie gifted us with a vintage craft pack, and Beth made up a Flea Market Survival Kit, with wet wipes, mints, and tissues.
The home is owned by a super nice family, some of whom came by to visit.
The rooms are filled with trophies, and has a distinct hunting theme.
There are "sheds" everywhere. I was going to say hundreds, but I'll bet it is more like thousands.
This guy was our crating, buddy and watched over the table we worked at.
You can tell by the surroundings that the place is probably more used to Turkey and Deer Hunters than Vintage Junk Hunters.
I thought it was pretty clever, to use one of their empties for a soap dispenser. And to top off the popcorn with a light bulb when there was no lid for the jar.
And yes, there were plenty of empties.... NO, these were NOT ours. Like I said, we were daintily sipping wine.
And honestly, not that much wine.... goofiness sometimes just occurs when the opportunity arises.
And then it escalates a little bit.
Well, maybe more than a little.
This is the room that Guncle Randy and I shared. I am lucky enough to have been a guest in the Crown Royal Suite two years in a row. I felt like a princess.
The views were dreamy.
I had a feeling that I wasn't in Kansas anymore.
It was the best!! Thank you Karen, and thank you to the Whetstines for hosting this fun filled getaway!!
