A Wonderful Day!

Oh I DID take my camera! I was just having SOOOOO much fun and looking at SOOOOO many pretty things that I forgot the dang thing was hanging around my neck!!
McIntosh 1890's Festival was great but seriously lacking many of the 'usual' vendors. You can always tell when the economy is down by attending these large events and seeing many empty spaces that are not a 'norm'. 
I was able to meet Sandy and her daughter Samantha from The Olde Country Cupboard. Go HERE and you can see her blog post and view some of her wonderful pictures. There is even one of me and my friend. I 'm the large BEAST in the middle.......at almost 6 feet you can't miss me!!!
Here are a few pics that I took!
It was in the 40's when we got there and COLD to these Florida bones!
Spaces are empty from lack of vendors :(
I bought these from The Olde Country Cupboard! LOVE my Santas and Raggedy Candy Cane Annie!
Some great buys on spindles and spools for some future make-dos!
A pattern from Sandy's booth!
Some AMAZING smelling Tarts from Sandy's daughter, Samantha!
I live on a lake so this was a MUST HAVE!!

I told you my photos weren't the best so make sure you go to Sandy's blog HERE to view some of hers.
Stay tuned!
