Fall Festival Finds
This past weekend was Fall Festival time in our area. Although I didn't spend too much time there this year, I was fortunate enough to bring home a couple of lucky finds. I just love finding the unepected. You just never know what you may run across when you are just browsing.
This pantry box was just waiting for me at the Appalachian Artisans Festial. The artist drew the rosehip design around the rim of the lid. Just as I paid for it, she opened the lid and put in a boquet of the dried rosehips that she had grown.(picture on top of the box) I thought that was such a sweet and thoughtful gesture.
This old sled almost made my heart stop! I have seen similar ones in Country Living Magazine but never saw one in person. I even haggled the price down an extra fifteen dollars so I got a pretty good deal. I have it on the center of the table in my dining room. It makes a stunning centerpiece.
Now I can hardly wait until next year!
