I would love to go back and spend the day there!

Here’s the beautiful little handmade bag that I got from my girlfriend, Dianne’s booth. She had so many lovely things but this was my favorite!

And YES….I’m still in NC! I’m just hopping back in time!

What a beautiful rich color, you selected! You must be planning to attend a Christmas ball. That does look like a fun place to spend a day.

Hi Diane, Did some one mention wine tasting? :) I love a good glass of wine. Looks like you had a great day. It would be nice to go on a carriage ride and enjoy the view, and do a little shopping also. Love the handbag too.It is just gorgeous.

You have many wonderful photos on your blog. I enjoyed my visit. Thank you for stopping by my blog and for leaving your comment. Seems we do have a few things in common. I would be more than happy to be a follower your blog.

Well you take care and have a great week ahead whatever you do or don't do.
Dianne :)

Hello namemate! The place is a WOW! Arts and crafts, meeting new people and experiencing the beauty of the nature, what's more can I ask for! You are really so lucky to discover and experience a lot of these beautiful places.

What a fun arts and crafts festival. I love the purse you found...purple and black is always so elegant and lovely. Perfect!
My sister just exhibited at a small craft festival in Tryon(sp?),NC. She weaves and makes lovely scarves, throws, etc. Your area of the country has wonderful talent and festivals. And, autumn is perfect for wandering around your beautiful countryside.

Sorry but I'm just now catching up on my visits! Towards the end of the day at the Fall Festival a young couple took a carriage ride. All the family was gathered to "catch the last carriage ride of the day." What they were really waiting for was... for the young man to climb out of the carriage and help his girlfriend down, then get down on his knee and open a ring box and propose! It was sooooo sweet! She cried... and accepted... There were tears all in the crowd too!
