T is for

take me to the fair!
wow, the waterford fair was fabulous!
last year my friend terri and i took a class from norman kennedy at the waterford school. terri invited me up to maryland so we could go to the fair this year.

friday and saturday were rainy and cold. not good for the vendors, but great for us, as there were no crowds.

sunday was sunny and very warm, way more crowded. luckily we had already done most our shopping and just enjoyed the house tours and the re-enactors.

we finally caught up with melissa weaver dunning on sunday when she was spinning outdoors.

waterford is like a little brigadoon, around a country curved road, all of a sudden this tiny jewel of a colonial town appears.

the fair is a combination of a juried art and craft show, where the vendors must demonstrate their craft,

and a house tour. each day different houses are open.

the food was yummy yummy yummy! lamb sausages with dill yogurt sauce, london broil wraps, sliced caramel apples, and the best pumpkin ice cream ever :-)

this tree was putting on it's own show.

thanks terri for a delightful weekend!

Wonderful pictures! I so miss "Colonial" cultural events. I used to live in VA many, many moons ago. The West only has "Rendezvous"....not much knitting or spinning going on at those. Sodhouses made with buffalo dung are not quite as impressive as those beautiful Early American homes! Thanks for sharing your adventure with us!
