Oh ! The FUN we will have!

Follow us to the 63rd annual
North Carolina Apple Festival!

It was SO much fun this year!

There were so many talented artists. beautiful crafts,
great music and yummy food!

We parked at the Curb Market and took pics
of each other just in case I blogged! lol


and my handsome hubby.....

Time to WALK!!!
We began our search to find Fran!

She is such a sweetheart and a talented artist
and I've bought her baskets every year for years!
You can see I have a basket by Fran
and it gets filled up as we walk the street!

I wish this was MY collection! lol
I'll post pics of my treasures in another post!

And it is a little like living in Mayberry here
in the mountains of NC!!!

Enjoy your day!

Have some FUN!
Eat a funnel cake!

What a big Apple festival. I love the baskets.

We have Apple Days in October in a little town in the mountains that isn't too far from me. It is a smaller festival though.

You know, I have never had a funnel cake. Am I missing out on something wonderful?

Have a nice day.

Looks like a beautiful day to spend outside. You and your husband are so cute, I had to laugh when I saw the Martha canvas bag in tow as it is the same bag I carry everywhere. I keep wanting to sew an applique over the M S Living emblem but haven't done it yet. I love the old police car and the baskets are lovely. Thanks for letting all of us come along!

Great pictures of the festival. I didn't get there this year. But I love those baskets!


Thank you for the kind comment about my banner...I used a greeting card and just added the "pumpkin"..
Looks like a very fun day and baskets are wonderful. Can't wait to see what you filled it up with.
Nice pic of you and hubby.

It's a blast from the past, traveling with you! Love the Mayberry post and those pumpkins are a hoot...Love it! We have a small Dutch town up the road that seems like it is right out of the Mitford Series by Jan Karon. Your beautiful! Lucky hubby for sure! Tell him I said so!!!

Those baskets are beautiful. I use baskets all over my home. I used to have over a hundred in but have trimmed it down since I have less room now.
