A Visit To The Fair

While we're still enjoying Autumn I want to share some of the things I've been up to this season, including  a visit to the Country Living Fair, hosted every year by Country Living Magazine at the Ohio Village living history museum in Columbus

My pal Cheryl and I had a great time wandering through the vendors of handmade furniture, rugs, jewelry, artwork and much more, as well as antiques vendors who tempted us with vintage baskets, chairs, shoe lasts, and French flower buckets. 

Other interesting displays caught our attention, like this mountain of gourds and squash,

and a cool vintage auto.

An apple tree sagged under the weight of it's bounty of apples. 

We stayed so long admiring beautifully carved furniture, hand knit socks and artisan soaps that we were nearly the last visitors to leave! In case you were wondering, most of the artists had signs requesting that no photos be taken of their work, so it wasn't possible to share that here. But there was talent in abundance and, all in all, it was a fun day.

Thanks for stopping by today, I'll be posting soon with more knitting updates and other fun stuff.
