Fabulous Festival Finds!

Oh my! I have photos of some of the prettiest things I found at the McIntosh festival and I realize now, I’m going to need at least 2 posts to show them all.

I met the sweetest lady, Lee Anne Hinson and I could have spent all morning in her booth. (and lots more money! lol) She made everything in this collage!

Annies

It was hard to pick just one but here’s my precious Annie Lee!

I bought one of her sweet Santas, too and would have loved to buy a bear! (maybe next time!)

I bought a little bag of pumpkins from this sweet lady.

The prices seemed very reasonable this year and almost everything there was handmade by the person sitting in the booth. It sure makes it more special to meet the nice men and ladies that make such beautiful crafts.

And hugs and kisses to my hubby for choosing some pretty jewelry for me!

I love the doll--one of my weaknesses. My mother-in- law was a crafter for years and it was always such fun to meet the crafters and go shopping. You found really neat stuff.

Oh, such fun! I love craft shows too. I am jealous of your weather, gentle rain and all. What a lovely way to spend the day!

You found some cute things! It is nice to meet the person who mad the item. You know how sometimes there's one booth where people aren't stopping? My heart hurts for that person. I'm always looking for home decor items.

Elizabeth said...

Looks like a wonderful festival. I just may have to go to that one next year!

Love the raggedy Annie! One year we hunted for weeks to find one I was determined to give our granddaughter...in days before Internet and etsy of course.she's a mom herself now. Anyway it is the perfect doll.

At festivals I love the music and variety of foods. I love to make the rounds of the craft booths, too. So many talented people out there with such beautiful stuff.

I love the Raggedy Ann with pumpkins!

Diane, Annie Lee is adorable. That is one talented lady you met. Her creations are so sweet. Annie Lee looks good with Santa or with pumpkins, and aren't those pretty pumpkins. Wish I could have been there. laurie

It must have been so hard to choose just one, she's so precious. Support homemade! You did good.

How sweet of your husband for picking out jewelry for you. I do love the bracelet and earrings! The dolls are so cute, it's no wonder you came home with them.

kitty said...

What fun, Diane! Your new craft purchases are wonderful. I know you had a great time. How thoughtful of your hubby to buy you some jewelry.

deb @ frugal little bungalow said...

I swear that doll is cuter than the original Raggedy Anns ! Just adorable and I love her dress!

When my grandson was a baby I could not resist and I bought a Raggedy ANDY. Babies love that happy bright face.

No wonder you bought this doll...who could resist :)

Laura said...

You hit the jackpot. Annie Lee is wonderful. There is nothing better than that feeling when you hit upon a treasure trove.

Enjoyed visiting,
