Goode Tuesday Morning To You. A cozy fire, a chilly rain falling, hot cocoa in my mug and a snug and warm house. It's good to be home. That being said.....I could have stayed in Massachusetts several more days and been quite happy about it. Oh what a LOVELY trip we had. The Walker Homestead show was amazing and will definitely be added to my yearly schedule. Wonderful host (love Kris and Paul)...excellent (and oh so friendly) vendors and the opportunity to meet customers and facebook friends in person...amazing. I also made many new friends, customers and soon to be workshop folks. It was GREAT. Here are a few pictures our my booth. :)

Along with the show, Steph (my wonderful sister-in-law, friend and trip companion)
Enjoyed yummy Autumn meals at The Oxtail Tavern (3 days in a row)..when we find a place we like, when we are traveling for work, we go there for dinner each night. For us, it makes for a more homey and relaxing trip. AND...the icing on the cake....Sunday we spent the day at Old Sturbridge Village...this is my 2nd time visiting and it was just as wonderful this time. I could truly LIVE there. It was Apple Harvest Days..what a perfect time to visit. Tho I do desire to return in December when they celebrate Christmas by Candlelight♥♥.
The homes, the animals...the cooking....THE HISTORY..oh my goodness..it was just so wonderful. I did not take many pictures...the day was just so beautifully cool and everything so wonderful I forgot all about my camera. They were making molasses from cider!!! Did you know you could do that?? I for one, did not but I will be trying it to be sure!!!! Stephanie and I also learned, the art, of hand dipping candles..we each got to bring our own, hand dipped pair, home as well...LOVE!! I am ordering the supplies today to make my own!!!
Now that I am back home my head is swimming with new ideas and designs..and the desire to bake and cook!!!!
First thing first.......
