The Scituate Art Festival

Don't forget about my giveaway -
First, let me just say that Scituate is a beautiful little town, especially at this time of year. The fall has changed the leaves on the hundreds of trees near the reservoir and it is so pretty that I had to take photos of it for a possible future painting.
I took my baby sitter/friend with me and away we went. We only got lost once ;) It actually really wasn't that bad of a drive and we knew there would be traffic, this is one of the biggest festivals in the country.
If I had brought $10,000 I could have easily spent it there. The art was beautiful, the jewelry, clothing, glass work, bath and body stuff, stuffed animals, music - it was all beautiful. There was a lot to take in, the crowds were enormous and there were so many vendors.
Next year, I WILL be a vendor there, it is a goal.

This is the entrance to the festival, there were thousands of people, it is almost overwhelming.

I adore this person's glass work. The little pumpkins are just adorable.

Selene tried some killer bee honey and it was definitely different from regular honey. It was super thick and a little bitter.

Driving home we got a little lost - of course. For some reason whenever Shannon is in my car, I get lost.

There was a lot of walking - I guess Beanie's little legs couldn't take it.

Awesome festival - I highly recommend if you are in the RI area for Columbus Day weekend next year that you stop by and see it. I'll be there - as a vendor this time.

Just as a side note - when I dropped off Shannon I went to pick up Clay and this song came on that I'd never heard before and I must say - it's a new favorite for sure. Something about it reminds me of being really little.
