This morning I went to a local craft fair in town.
This cute pumpkin was up for raffle. I thought that it was a great idea for pieces of fallen trees.
My son picked out this snowman that a local wood carver made.
I fell in love with this cross stitch bird feeder ornament.
Then I went to the EstoFest. It was put together by the Boston Estonian Society. They were screening the acclaimed documentary "The Singing Revolution" by James Tusty. I had to leave early, because my 3 year old was giving me a hard time, but the movie was very interesting. I wish that I could have finished watching it.
They had some Estonian items on some tables. Here is a candle holder made from half a log.
Here is a nice wooden trivet made from tree branches.
The candle is in the colors of the Estonia flag.
I love these wooden trivets / coasters.
Some knitted toys.
Traditional folk garments.
The belt looks like it was woven on an inkle loom or by card weaving.
Some beautiful embroidery on a dress.
A wooden table setting.
Then my family and I went apple and pumpkin picking.
We took home a bag of apples that the boys picked.
They also picked out 3 pumpkins, one very large, to take home. It is a tradition to wait to carve them until my mom visits for Halloween. This way she gets to join in the fun, and the pumpkins are still good for Halloween. Until then, they are great decorations for the Fall.
They also had honey bees there.
All in all, it was a very busy day for me.
Last night I taped a new episode of my local t.v. show. It is on crafting with plastic bottles.
I'll be editing it for you tube sometime this month.
