Renegade madness part 2!

GUEST BLOGGER: kg + ab

All right - so Saturday ended so soggy and wet - it continued to storm all night, but thankfully cleared up by the morning. When we got everybody out of bed and loaded up for the fair, it was nice and cool and hazy. There were a few showers, early on, but nothing major, thankfully! Ok, enough about the weather, I'm starting to sound like my Granddaddy - (my bones were aching, too!)

Sunday seemed to bring just as many if not more crowds than Saturday and people were still running around checking out the stalls after 7pm! I was one of those crazies, trying to see everything while taking turns manning the booth and keeping track of the baby and dog with Mr. ab. So here's the 2nd installment of neat stalls and interesting stuff. Oh, and I want to send out a super apology to Pistachio Press (www.pistachiopress.com) for not getting a chance to stop by and say hi!

You have to love the display case - genius! And all the work fits in so nicely - where do you start - the hearts, the logs, or the wishbones? (or acorns or rock candy!) It was all witty and smart and delightful.

They had great cards and had the most lovely antique handkerchiefs that were silkscreened with sweet phrases like "home sweet home", "hi there" , and "when this you see think of me" . Their booth was so very nice and homey with the handkerchiefs hanging and blowing in the breeze.

Very clever wooden bookmarks - read books not blogs! ha! My favorite bookmark said "analog".

Whew! I think it was close to 8:30 by the time we finally got the last few loads out - the pool looked much different without 200- ish stalls!
