A lovely spring weekend!

Minnesota finally got some real Spring weather!! Temps in the 60's and 70's blew in on Friday and stayed through the weekend. That was great because my brother, Doug, drove up from Iowa to vendor at the nearby Pioneer Power Swap Meet east of LeSueur, MN. His spot was kitty-corner from all this fun yard-art...............
 
I could see some of these critters in our flower garden, when we finally plant one. In the meantime, if you see something you like, just check out Garden*Designs&Sculptures
for more info. 
 
The goat was too cute........so were the chickens........
 You can have your own zoo...........
And a lighthouse would look cute if you have a cabin at the lake. We don't but ya never know........
 Here's my brother, Doug..........
His spot was near the newest building that has been added to the Pioneer Power site........this old church........
My husband, Steve, and I walked around a bit but then he decided he was more interested in visiting with Doug...... 
 
and since I've seen my brother a lot in the last few weeks, I took off on my own and started heading up one aisle after another. I found some vintage Valentines that "called my name". Just had to have them. LOL! Picked up a pretty teacup from Doug's friend, Steve......
I love booths with lots of dishes!  At this swap meet, though, you can buy everything from dishes to tractors to old washing machines, all that yard art, quilts, .........
and tools, vintage windows, toys, furniture and even dollhouses. Would have loved that red one when I was a kid!
And there was good food! You know the kind........French Fries, mini donuts, and more. A sure sign of spring and summer was this produce vendor...........
Now the bananas and oranges clearly were not grown in Minnesota and most of the other stuff probably wasn't either but soon there will be fresh tomatoes, corn, green beans and more. I can hardly wait!
Good weekend all around! Last weekend was good, too, and I just never got to sharing about it. I went to the Mankato Quilt Guild show. Look for my quilty post about it on Monday. Still not good weather for hanging quilts out "on the line" but I saw plenty of pretty ones at the show that will keep me and you inspired!
See ya tomorrow!

What a delightful swap meet - thank you for sharing. The yard art certainly caught my eye. It's nice to have warm weather again.

The yard art was fun for sure!
All in all it looks like a beautiful day with lots of fun things to look at and buy. ;)

What fun!!! I can see there is a lot there that I would want - the chicken yard art, the blue canning jars, etc.

We have flea markets here in the north east but nothing to compare to the swap meets I have been to down south. They are such fun to go to....

I'm quite partial to the chicken sculptures!!
