Ok, to say we had fun at this festival this past weekend would be an understatement!! It was huge, the lines were long, the DAYS were long, the food was greasy, we got lost OVER and OVER again, but we loved EVERY minute of it!! Ok, well not every minute, some of the vendors were crabby and we got rained on a bit at the end of the morning on Sunday, but all-in-all, one of the most successful and fabulously fun junking excursions I have ever been on!!!

Look at these pics!! The one of the crowd was taken mid-way down one of the MANY paths we could have chosen. I think this one was Main Street. One of the volunteers down there that helped us bring things back to our car told us that expected over 125K people to travel in from all over for this festival! The picture of my SIL's van is only the second night we were there!! We had another full day of shopping AFTER this was taken!!! Sorry, for the quality of the pic . . . I was laughing so hard that it looks kinda blurry. Suprisingly though, we really didn't spend that much money. Most of what was purchased was at flea markets or antique dealors. The big item in the center is a large buffett that I purchased for $20 and the cool black, wroght iron scolly thing off to the right of the picture is actually a set of 3 auditorium chairs, all wood and metal, that Missy STOLE for $15!!!! Can you believe it!!!! SO MUCH FUN!!!

First Day of School!!!!!

I can't even believe that Carter is old enough already to go to Pre-School!! He had his first day and although he is typically pretty shy about new experiences, he was so excited!! He has been talking about going to school all summer and now it is finally here!
Look at the shoes! (in his excitement, he put on Daddy's sandals) ha ha And YES, the mohawk is natural!! Believe it or not, his temples are really blonde and that strip down the center is dark and thick!! LOL Studly!
He didn't even notice when we left him, but his teacher did say that as soon as he figured it out, he was a little apprehensive, but still pretty outgoing so that is a good sign! He even met a new friend right away and they built . . . of course . . . a racetrack!!!

Recycled Sweater Mittens!!!

Talk about a fun project!!! I have been grabbing every old, discarded wool sweater that I can get my hands on! I am making these mittens with a fleece lining so that they don't itch are are extremely cozy!!!! I plan to have some of these for sale, since we do live up north and the cold weather will be here all too quickly, over at Snowman Hill's awesome fall sale Friday Sept 25th and Sat Sept 26th!! I love recycling!!!! Thank you Krista!!!!!!
