Apple Festival “Mosaic Monday”

I hope everyone has had a wonderful Labor Day weekend!

We went to the NC Apple Festival

I used Picassa to make this mosaic!

Apple Days sounds right up my alley, as my husband and I used to own an apple farm with 200 trees, lots of them heirloom types.
This weekend I exercised in a pool, went to church and am writing a book, all enjoyable.

You really have been doing lots of activities lately away from home! I guess you really do need a quiet day at home. Lovely mosaic!

OMGoodness! Does that look like fun. I love all those little towns on the west side of NC.(of course I had to visit the one with the hurricane not the Apple festival :D)

I didn't go this year....we had company and we have taken them there in previous years, so this year we did other things. I will tell you that yesterday late afternoon about 5PM we were walking at Fletcher Park, and I hoped to run into you....but I didn't.

Hugs,
Penny

Looks like you had an awesome time. The festival looks like so much fun. It has rained here almost all day so I think all outdoor activities were cancelled.

Wonderful mosaic. It looks like so much fun. Was it in Hendersonville? Is it really apple season already? My goodness, where did the summer go!?! This year just seems to be flying by so quickly. Hope you have been having a great holiday weekend.

What a fun day! Aren't festivals like this a blast? I love that aqua shawl in one of your pictures.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Apple festivals sound like autumn to me --my favorite time of the year! Now if it would only stop raining. It was sunny and hot in Denver but since I have been home the weather here has been overcast and wet.

Your scrapbook pahges are adorable!
