Ozark Fall Festival and Followers Giveaway!

I cannot tell you how much you all have blessed me these last few days. The response to the "Followers Give-Away" has been amazing. So many new names and faces. Thank you! I hope to contact you all individually, but in case I don't make it by to everyone that left a comment, please know you are appreciated! I will be continuing with the give-away until Friday, October 9th at midnight, for the things that I have, but if we reach 200 by Friday night I'll do an extra give-away! Maybe not the same exact items, but some similar ones.

Here are some photos of my fun afternoon Friday with my sister and my nephew at the Fall Festival in Ozark, Missouri. This festival is mostly crafts, all kinds, but lately they have been having a few booths with antiques and vintage things. I really believe this has been the best year yet. Great jewelry, candles, fall decor, and a ton of other fun things...oh, and of course all the junk food that you can stand, and then some.

Why haven't we learned not to take a picture facing the sun? The McSquinty Sisters!

As you could see in our picture the wind was crazy!

Electrifed vintage items. Just so cute.
I bought an old copper pepper shaker
that had a great little flickering bulb.

Since I LOVE Cats,
 I bought a black "scardy cat" on an old spindle.

Here is Chelsea, isn't she just the cutest?
 She and her friend Stacey had a great jewelry booth
where they sell their fun things with a real retro feel
 called "Glamour Girls".
She is literally holding down the tent!

I'll show you what I bought later.

Great vintage tweedy dress form.

Even a chandelier.

Their space won my vote for overall "cuteness factor"!
They have a space at Spring Creek Antiques,
where my booth is located.

And what's a Fall Festival without a pumpkin patch?

Many of you have asked where you could purchase the journal. It is the Andrews McMeel Publishing Co. 2010 "Birds of a Feather" calendar/journal. I found mine at a Sam's Club, but when I went to a different one they did not have it. You can order online at Amazon or Barnes and Noble. You will pay a higher price, but you can at least find one.
Thanks again everyone,


  1. Thanks soooo much for the pics...looks like a great festival. It got me all excited about my trip this week to a craft show in Canton, MS....It has 3 years since my last trip to it...I sure hope it's still the same...filled with lots of goodies...check in with me next week for pics. Have a great week and I hope you make it to 200!
