Hello intrepid readers!
I apologize for being gone for so long! If you follow my other blog (and I do hope you will wander over and do so), you'll know that I've been swamped with finals and papers and all manner of school related insanity!
There are a few new faces here and I want to welcome you all to The Manor! Thank you so much for coming by, commenting, and a big THANK YOU to Ms. Sparrow for introducing me to some wonderful people. I promise to stop by your lovely blog homes soon! Forgive the delay.
This weekend, I went to my first ever Country Living Fair* at Stone Mountain Park. WOW. That pretty much sums it up! It was blustery and chilly and oh so perfect for rambling amongst the pine trees and gathering inspiration like so many fallen leaves. I came home with an arm load of pretties and a brain filled to overflowing with ideas and creative ruminations.
There was so much to look at I understand why they have the fair for three days. This was the first festival I've ever gone to that was filled with booths of items that I adore! Most festivals in the South tend to carry the same items and, unfortunately, they are a far cry from the arts and crafts that I do and enjoy. But Country Living delivered and I'm planning some mad crafting over the next few weeks!
Stay tuned because I plan to blog more often and all those mad crafting ideas will be posted here for your enjoyment. And speaking of enjoyment, here are a few more photos from the fair! Enjoy!
Appropriate for Halloween, don't you think?
I feel a short story coming on...
I think this poor witch got more "trick" than "treat"!
So THAT'S what they're calling it now!
We bought the tickets for my Mom's birthday;
I figured it was appropriate to post a picture of her here.
(shhhh, just don't tell her! It'll be more fun if she finds out when she reads the post.)
