The Sumner Art Festival Was Fun

Funky Junk Sister #1 was visiting this weekend, one of her favorite places to visit is Sumner, WA. We read on Amy's blog that Sumner was having their Art Festival so we thought it would be fun to check out.

Well we couldn't go to Sumner without visiting the girls at Today's Country Store. We were greeted by these sunny sunflowers on the bench at the entrance to the store.
This little banner was cute and I declare myself this!
Halloween? Darn, what happened to summer!

Lemonade anyone? Don't you just love this darling vintage table setting?
We chatted with everyone in the store for awhile, then we moved on to the outdoor booths. That is where we found these washtub fountains made by "Mom-n-Me" of Snohomish, WA ( It is hard to see in the pics but the water is running.

Here is a close up.

This was fun too. Can you see the faucet with the water running from it. This really fits the bill for garden art.

We stopped in to say hi to Marlene at The New England Saltbox (253- 826-3506). She has a mix of old and new. Here are a few pics of the old.

Here is some of the new.
This is a great use for an old window. Hang it from the ceiling with branches or garland. Twinkle lights would be nice too.

As you can see there is plenty to look at, so make sure you take the time to see everything.

We worked up an appetite with all of the walking and decided it was time to find a good place to eat. Someone said we should try The Buttered Biscuit (253-826-6099). It took us a bit to find it since it is behind the main street but the search was sooooo worth it.
As we sat down in our booth, mom noticed the plates of food the couple next to us had and she said "Wow, they sure are generous with their portions here!" Mom ordered chicken fried steak and I had a Reuben sandwich. First they brought out the absolute best cornbread we have ever had and it was drizzled with sweet cream. OMG!!! After that our plates came and my sandwich was HUGE. Mom got two HUGE chicken fried steaks, potatoes and eggs! You could have fed a family of four from her meal. Seriously! It was all so tasty too, really fabulous, you gotta go there!
When you stop in say hello to Tammi, Jenn and Anthony. Tell them the Funky Junk Sisters sent you!
Till next time,
