One Autumn Day.....

Yesterday was the day my sister, mom, dad and I went the Covered Bridge Festival. We all took the day off from everything and had fun just the 4 of us. My sister and I managed to leave our families behind. It was breezy and 40 degrees cooler than it was Monday, It felt like winter! I am sure I kept my winter coat on all day! We actually went the day before it started. Going early has it's pros and cons, mainly pros. Cons~not all the vendors are set up, and not hardly any food booths are going yet, Pros~not hardly any traffic, all the flea market vendors are set up so it is better pickings. We prefer the antique junk dealers over the crafters because we all resale, so it makes sense to go early for those bargains!!! We found lots of stuff and my sister accused me of taking up too much room with all my stuff, she was teasing of course (but I did hog up the trunk, lol) Since there were not hardly any food booths open we found mini doughnuts for lunch~YUM!! They were so hot and just melted in your mouth:-) Something about eating food outside makes it tastes better I guess.
We found the guy that sells all the enamelware. He was on the cover of a past Country Living and they he did the Country Living Show, (some of the comments on this link are interesting to read) We got all the left overs but we got better deals, so that was cool. I love the old labels that are on them. The chenille pumpkin was only $2, can you believe it! All 3 of us bought those. On Tuesday I also picked up this darling little white terrarium, it was only $7. I am keeping it and can't wait to put a Christmas display in it! There were a lot of laughs and we all had fun. I am tired today but it was well worth it. I can't think of any better way to have spent the day there than with the "original"4!
