You just never know what you're going to find in a flea market in Northwest Arkansas. These are stripes, pin stripes to be exact. They are not the world famous New York Yankee pinstripes. These belong to the Toledo, Mud Hens!
One of the booths was packed with western gear. No rhinestone cowboy stuff here. This is real, honest to goodness ridin' & ropin' stuff. Most of it looked too new to be true flea market finds, but I's sure someone does their shopping here.
I have to admit, I don't normally do "cute". It really doesn't wear well on me. However, when I saw this toy rocking horse, SHS was the first thing that I thought of. He's only about 8" tall and I'm pretty sure this qualifies as "too cute". Am I right?
Just a short trip back into the archives finds me at our Alaskan cruise. It was the trip of a lifetime and I'd do it again in a minute.
This painting can be found at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas. I fell in love with this piece the first time that I saw it and it remains my favorite painting in the collection. There is a new exhibit opening next week, I plan on attending. If photography is allowed, I'll give you a tour. That's all for this week. See you next Sunday.
