Sorry for my not so great picture but wanted to show the strange vignette Judy did in the front window. Halloween brings the strangest things out in people! You should see her house. The kids think it's great but I still have a little fear of it scarring them for life. She has a great hall closet that she decorates for almost every season. I'll try to take pictures when she does it. It's amazing!!!!
Stella, Phoebe & I had the greatest time on Friday. While Mom & Sage went to the Dr., we set off for the fall festival at the Ozark park. It's a wonderful park that sets right next to the river & it was packed with artists, crafters, food vendors & tons of people. The smell & feel in the air was amazing. But does it bother anyone else that they have this wonderful festival & vendors stock their booths with all kinds of Americana that's "made in China". Just seems to me that there's a time & place for that (since hardly anything is made in America) but a festival like this should have local crafters & artisans. Some of the local people had the most beautiful things like the wool applique below & hooked rugs but believe me it's hard to sell your handmade things when they're setting beside something made in another country by people working for $20 a week. Just wish there was more appreciation for handmade goods.
Anyway, the girlsies & I had a great time. Hope you had a good weekend!
