A Beautiful Saturday at the Crafts Fair

Every year there is a craft fair the Saturday before Mother's Day.  I had a great time strolling up and down the aisles and visiting with vendors and running into old friends.  Here's some photos from the day.

 There is always a great variety of items - pottery, jewelry, lawn art, bird houses, paintings, mixed media, goat cheese and pistachios.  Most of the vendors are from northern New Mexico.  It's always a fun event, but sometimes it gets rain in the afternoons.  This year was perfect - sunshine with a slight breeze.  That's the one nice thing about this area - you can be hot in the sun but step into the shade and it could  be 10 degrees cooler - very nice.

I hope your weekend was as nice and relaxed as mine!

Just popped over from my blog Kay to find you've written up about your craft fair. Gosh I wish I had been there, I love the birdhouses and the sunshine. It's still cold here in Lancashire UK.
Have a good week Kay

Kay, It looked like a wonderful day for a craft fair. I really like the rusty Native American symbols, very cool. Those birdhouses where sure pretty, too. Spring and summer always bring with them so many delightful opportunities to get outside and enjoy the weather. I love craft fairs, picnics, car shows, tractor pulls, boat races, farmers markets, all the fantastic things of the warmer seasons. Have a great week, and thank you for sharing your weekend with us. Connie :)

I love going to craft shows, it will be my first time being in one coming up this Saturday, a little nervous, I admit. Anyway, I know I would have been at that pistachio Booth, yum! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

Looks like a lot of fun! The variety from butterflies to pistachios! Thanks for following me through the tunnel my bloggy friend! I have been doing some soul searching and finding my direction. It feels good to know where to take the first step.
