Midway Fall Festival

The week-end at Midway way was a success !  I actually made money and had a good time to boot. Saturdays weather was beautiful and a lot of people came out. Sunday it rained all day but was a good day too.  Hubby and I stayed somewhat dry in our tent and were comforted with kettle corn, funnel cakes, cheeseburgers cooked on a grill and polish sausage sandwiches smothered  with sautéed onions . I love fair  food. It has no health benefits what-so-ever but it’s soooo good.

100_2929 This train was on display. It was huge.


Here’s me trying to appear as dry as possible.


Here’s Joe. I’m so grateful he was able to get time off of work so he could help me.

I couldn’t have done this show without him. He’s such a sweetheart and he worked so hard helping me set up and breakdown and made sure that I remembered to drink plenty of water. What a guy!!!



Aren’t these Alpacas so cute. I wish I’d gotten pictures of them on Saturday when it was dry and their “do’s” were all fluffy and sticking up.

As the show was getting close to ending, Mary, who owns Damselfly Studio came by and wanted a lot of my pieces for the store. So, I’ll be working to replenish my stock. Mary always does so well selling my things and I’m so pleased to be shown at Damselfly. If you’re ever near Midway, Kentucky do be sure to stop in. She has great treasures in her gallery.

It was a great show and I look forward to doing it again next year. Today Joe and I feel like we were run over by this.

100_2949Could we be getting old?

No, just sadly out of shape I think ;o)

A show and a play

I did a craft show at the Shelby county High School over the week-end. It was their first one and unfortunately not very well attended. There were so many talented artists and artisans exhibiting too. Here’s how I set up my space. 100_2880



This Saturday and Sunday I’ll be set up at the Midway Fall Festival in the lovely town of Midway. It’s the first year for me~~~~wish me luck.

Last night we went to see our favorite thespian, Paige, in the production of “Suessical the Musical”. Of course, she was magnificent. 100_2888

Here she is outside on the way to the theater before the performance.



This is after the show with her friend~ The Cat in the Hat.

Grandpa and I enjoyed the show very much. It was funny, lively and just good entertainment.

Kudos to Shelby County Community theater for the many fine productions that they put on through out the year.

Bell House

Paige and I usually go out to lunch when she comes over. One of our favorites is Bell House. It’s located right here in Shelbyville. The house where it’s located was built in 1902, and has been lovingly restored by the owners Bob and Sue Andriot. It’s a beautiful addition to the heart of the town where we live. The food is fresh and wonderful. They are open for lunch and in the Fall they plan on being open for dinner on Friday and Saturday nights.

Here is a peek inside. It’s great to have a local restaurant with such a lovely ambiance.
