This weekend was a whirlwind weekend of fun, fun, fun!
First, I visited the Ohio Historical Village for the Country Living Fair that was held here in Columbus, Ohio.
If you have never visited the Ohio Historical Village, you should really take the time. The first time I remember that I was there was maybe a school trip. I say maybe, 'cause that was a LONG time ago for me and school. I do know I was there with my children for fieldtrips, but that was also a long time ago. The most recent time I was at the Village before this weekend was for a beautiful wedding in the old church. Only about 100 people were in the entire village for the wedding, and I just meandered down the uncrowded boardwalks and paths.
This view shows from the church back toward the main vendor area.
I had hoped to look for a little kit of quilting or hand embroidery, but the booth that I was looking for, Country Threads from Iowa, was just packed with people. Just couldn't get in. And by that time I had purchased this very nice, large, european market basket/weapon.
Here is that little something that I purchased. It became my weapon of choice as I wandered through the crowd!
I will fill it with cut perennials and weeds. I joked that I had to purchase it just to carry my sweater and other finds. It is a market basket after all.
I found a great booth toward the back of the Village. My favorite booth folks travelled from Pennsylvania to vend at this show. Their display was gorgeous and made me drool. If I was a silly person, I would have to take a road trip for their open house later this fall. It WAS that droolably good! My other finds I purchased from this booth. They were a few floating things. Yes, I said floating things. Candles, gourds, candy corn, and little glass bubbles. I will post a picture in a few days as I change my decorations around the house.
It was a wonderful day at the Historical Village. I just didn't expect that many people!
Then, because we could, sweetie and I went to the Delaware County Fair today. The Delaware Fair was kind of quiet, since it was soon after church time on Sunday. We were given a great tour by two tour guides: a Nephew and Neice who are new 4H members this year and last. We got to see all the goats and cows and the turkey and dog and photos and posters and vegetables that they took this year as projects.
All in good fun, and the crowd enjoys it.
So off to the fair with the giant cookie. And the rain has let up so maybe not as much muddy fun.
