Fall Fesival, Part 3

I am so glad that we made it 
home, that drive yesterday, was
too long for me! I drove a long
way in the dark, with it raining.
I guess we shouldn't have 
stopped at a couple antique
malls ;)....

Here are the rest of the festival
pictures that I took.  I didn't
get a lot of pictures of the craft
booths inside, but the ones that
were outside, were interesting.
This is a great place to take your 
kids to learn about how things 
were done, a long time ago.

I am not sure what this man was 
working on, I didn't get a good look, 
but I think he had knives in his 

 I was at the festival, shortly after it
opened and this booth was pretty full...
They had fur boots and Davy Crockett
hats, little pouches, swords, necklaces
and more, outside the booth.


Love the teepee.

Making lye soap.

The picture, above gives me the creeps!
More furs...

A little Fall decorating and some of 
the handmade baskets, that Linda 
made.....And more, below.

Well, that is it for the festival pictures.
I wish I had gotten some pictures of 
Santas, painted on driftwood, soda 
bottles and anything else, they felt like
painting them on....I need to take a 
picture of the crow and the mittens,
that I bought.....The mittens are 
so cute! Thanks for stopping by
and thanks to those that have left
me comments, recently. My email
wasn't working, so I could not reply
back to you.....I hope you all had
a great Thanksgiving!

Until next time....

  1. It looks like you had a great time. I love this time of year because of the all of the festivals. Hope you have a great week!

  2. Looks like a fun day! Love to see how things are made like that. i used to have a lady that made lye soap for me, it would take out any stain!


  3. Wow, it reminds me of Old Threshers! I love to watch them spin yarn, make soap, shoe horses..... It is the best way to spend a weekend!

  4. Looks like alot of fun, love the lye soaping display:) I agree on the one pic, creepy, lol!!!

  5. Karen, Glad you made it home safe and sound. We too had to drive in the rain, on the turnpike at night - I really don't like it. My husband does all the driving so I just sit and worry. Wonderful craft fair pictures! I love seeing blacksmiths at work and those baskets! Need I say more? ~Ann

  6. Looks like a great time! I really enjoyed the pics!Hugs,Jen

  7. Oh Karen Sweetie...
    Looks like you all had a wonderful time. I love seeing the lye soap display. The baskets made by Linda are absolutely breath taking. How beautiful and unique each one is.

    I am so happy you all made it home safe and sound. It is always a little scary to be driving in the dark, but with rain it makes it twice as scary.

    Have a great week sweet friend. Country hugs and much love, Sherry

  8. Hi Karen, I love your blog. I found you through your comment on Tonya's blog. I hope she gets to feeling better soon.
    I love your blog name. I will be starting a store or business blog with a bear theme. I thought of that about a week ago and I am really excited to get started with it :)
    Just love your little dancing bears on your sidebar. Where did you find them?
    I have signed up to follow your blog and I will sign up for your other one too.
    I am sure I will stop by often. Take care Janet W.

  9. Hi Karen, I love your blogs! I want to thank you for visiting my blog Morning Glory. Your sweet comment is much apperciated. What part of Texas are you in? I am looking forward to getting to know you. Thanks again and I have you down for the giveaway. :) dena

  10. hi, Karen~ now that looks like a good time~ thanks for taking us along~

  11. It's good to see that after all this while that you are still prim-ing it up and having more adventures to boot.
    I love your header, it is so cute!

  12. Hi Karen. Well, that photo didn't creep me out until I clicked on it and enlarged it! Wow, I wouldn't have wanted to meet those critters when they were still wearing their skin. The festival sounds like a lot of fun. My husband swears by lye soap--not too hard on your skin but does the job! ~Roberta

  13. Such a neat, neat festival! You have to fill me in on this, I would love to take the kids sometime!


I love reading your comments, it makes my day!
Please stop by often.
