Just Gorgeous!

Hi everyone!

Right now I am at our trailer at the campground. This is when we come up here to open our trailer for the summer and this is also the Maple syrup Festival which we always attend.

arch-home As I said in an earlier post, we have a little booth set up this year and are selling our herb products and a few other hand crafted items. My parents are up here camping too which is wonderful because they are helping watch the princess while we work the festival.

I haven’t take all the pictures I want to take yet so, I will do a post about the festival later. But, I did want to show you one of my favorite vendors. This gentlemen uses old antique and vintage dishes and somehow (Troy can tell you how he does it because he talked to him extensively last year) welds onto the dishes all these beautiful designs. Let me show you.

It is an organization that he is strongly involved with. He doesn’t have a website but, I have his phone number in case anyone is interested.

I just have to get one of these. I just don’t know which one I want! I should say, which one I want most!
