As I was driving home from work last Friday afternoon, I had the desire to take a little trip. When I got home I found that it was fine with Dan, so we packed up our things and off we went to a small town in southeastern Michigan. Our goal was to attend a Fall festival, but the weather wasn't the best.
My first stop was to look at some crafts. There were many pretty handmade doilies.
I have always wanted to make a sock monkey. They were available here in all colors and sizes.
I have a friend who knits dish rags. She says they hold up fine. I have thought about making some myself. I love the texture of these.
The vintage Halloween decorations caught my eye.
Pigs were the theme of this festival. There would be a pig roast later in the day and for dessert, some Piggie Pops.
Even though it rained, people still enjoyed themselves. This festival had a warm and cozy feeling. I just loved being there all nice and warm under my umbrella!
Tractors were pulling people around. At the back of this photo you can see the petting zoo.
We were instantly attracted to these little peeps.
They were so soft, fuzzy and sweet looking.
The children enjoyed the animals.
These llamas were just adorable.
Buggy rides were available.
There's a small child in there!
Ahh...a food tent!
I wanted one of these but by the time I decided to get one the line was too long to wait for it.
There was a hayride
and cute t-shirts
dyed wool that can be made into yarn
and pretty wild flowers.
I would have never thought to use a child's clothing hanger for bubble making, would you?
And what would a festival be without pumpkins of all sizes!
There was an old school house on the site.
Note the music box.
My how far we have come!
Whee! This is a kid-powered 100 year old merry-go-round!
What a gloomy sky...
This lady had the spirit though!
Time to go...
This was our second fall festival this year. I think this is our year for fall festivals!
