I'm behind
I need fall decorations in our home
So I made a few velvet (and wool) pumpkins for the mantle
The chalkboard is an old frame I painted with Annie Sloan paint
I love chalkboards. They are so versatile.
Happy Fall Ya'll!

Autumn Street Fair Booth

Our small town has an "Autumn Street Fair" every year.

It has been a long time since I have participated as a vendor.

My friend Nancy asked me to share her booth this year .

It started out as a brisk, rainy day to say the least.

 Mid morning the rain stopped -- but the cold did not.

We were troopers and made it just fine

after Nancy traded her flip flops for some socks and shoes with toes!

(Shhhhh! Don't tell her I said that!)

It was fun to see all the folks that dropped in to shop and visit.

That's what I love the most about being a vendor -- you get to see so many people!

Nancy provided the beautiful quilts to use as table cloths and I added a few vintage table cloths.

We had a wide variety of merchandise. Nancy sold bags, skirts, aprons and headbands

made from beautiful Tanzanian wax batik fabrics by her

daughter-in-law Holly and Holly's Tanzanian friend Suzy.

They do beautiful work.

Nancy's son Carson and his wife Holly are missionaries in Geita. I love hearing about their journey.

Nancy made the cutest guitar pick earrings & beautiful necklacesfrom vintage beads.

My daughter-in-law Linli and I had a wide variety of items to sell.

Linli had beautiful jade jewelry and I had just a hodge podge of things.

Mostly tea towels, aprons and chalkboards.

Good times! Come visit us at the Warren County Arts & Crafts Fair

Nov. 16-17!

Blessings, Patty
