I love fall festivals!
One of my favorite fall festivals is the Chatauqua in my birthplace, Chillicothe, MO. Today, I drove the hour and fifteen minutes northeast to attend the festival with two of my gal pals. I think The Lord gave me a small gift, The Short Chic decided she did not want to leave her Daddy's side all day today so she stayed home. I had a Mommy-free day!
Why do I love fall festivals. I love crafts. I love seeing new things. Running into old friends. And trying out some new foods!
I found new garden art. How cool are these recycled glass decorations. They had so many variations, it was really hard to select just one. I ended up buying the one on the bottom, it is six pieces of glass and will look great in a patch of flowers next summer.
|This is the really cute pear that sits on top of my new garden art. It is a pale pink/peachy color. My husband wants to know if this piece has any functional use. I told him No, but it isn't it interesting!|
Living on Gods Grace went with me. She was pretty excited to see that Rapunzel is alive and well.
There was a man there teaching us how to tie brooms. Can you just imagine how many generations have tied their own brooms?
The only other exciting thing that happened to us gals today...we got caught in a rain storm. As we started to leave the park today, it started sprinkling on us. By the time we got a block away it was a complete downpour! Soaked! That is the best word to describe us gals by the time we got back to my car. Absolutely soaked!
