Wayne is almost finished with the fireplace which means our living room will be full blown Christmas. Every single inch of it. The red and white gingham and gingerbread theme for the kitchen is trying to jump out of storage. I want to put the fall dacor away and bring the Christmas stuff out so bad!
Wayne and I went to the annual Mule Day festival in Georgia yesterday. Then we went plundering through antique stores and a general store in a little town after that. We do this every year and have since we met. It was such a wonderful short road trip, just the two of us. Matthew went off with the bluegrass group he plays banjo for and they played in a different town yesterday and again last night. This was the first year we didn't go to Mule Day as a family. I guess he's outgrowing us. Boo hoo.
As far as the eye can see, everything white in the picture above is an awning. That's just from where I was standing with my camera. Almost every awning is a different booth of antique farm tools, antique dishes, homemade crafts, etc. for sale. Thousands of people flock to Mule Day every year. This was the 37th annual event.
In the picture above, that's my sweet hubby in his black cap looking over some hand crafted rocking chairs. We know we have to get some new ones since sweet little Banjo chewed ours so bad, almost half the rockers in the backs of each one are gone. I guess the crazy animal ate the wood!
Below are a few pictures of some of the little town we always stop in. It's Havana, Florida, and it has the best little general store and antique stores. One is a big antique mall that you could actually hang out in for several hours. Wayne and I both just love plundering and browsing.
Well folks, that was Lillie Mae's Saturday road trip. I really do want your opinion on whether or not I should just leave fall dacor out or go ahead and change it all to Christmas.
I hope all of you have a blessed evening. Lots of hugz from my little home in the country to yours.
P.S., Here's the Mule Day website, just in case you want to plan ahead for next year.
