A Festival in the Woods

 We went to one of our favorite festivals yesterday.  I love how it is set in the woods.
 Stilt walking.

 Their signature fried bologna sandwich.

 Halushki.

 The band was just setting up.

 Such pretty flowers.

 Antiques and crafts.

 I wanted the large wooden box on the front porch but I have nowhere to use it. It was so nice and really well made.

 This woman was caning and selling chairs.

 Pottery.  Click any photo to enlarge.

 Iron works.

 This guy was making beautiful rocking horses.

 Shaker furniture.

 These were so pretty.

 They are copper plant hangers. The plants are rooted in the glass vials filled with water.

 Decorative tree.

 Wonderful detail on the green man.

 Some tastes of Fall.

 The Blog Tech got his pot roast parfait.  Pot roast and mashed potatoes topped with fried onions.

 I would love to scatter these giant mushrooms through my woods.

 This is such a cool thing to do with dead trees.

 You could buy Jesus with or without thorns.

 More Fall.

 Garden ceramics.


 Beautiful brooms.

I felt sorry for these little guys having to work outside in the heat all day. I wish they would have had them under the trees too.  It's so much cooler in there.

What a unique place to have a festival. :) Love the caning, what a lost art. L

I was there too! Shaker Woods is a MUST! Your pictures are great and really capture the festival. I own one of those wooden baskets (slightly smaller size) that you were coveting. I use mine to display my cross stitched pin pillows.

Lots of things I would like to have there :-) Especially those shaker furnitures but those rocking horses are just fantastic!

So nice to be able to buy onself a Jesus :-) I always wonder why they make him look so north European instead of someone coming from the middle east, after all that's where he came from :-) But I have to admit that they are really well made.

Those carvings in the trees are so cool!

Have a great day!
Christer.

It looks like a wonderful event! You didn't make the Blog Tech throw away his meat-and-potatoes parfait this year, did you?

Now all I want is a fried bologna sandwich. I'm jonesing bad.

This festival looks amazing! I would still be browsing, I fear.

Oh I love the idea of a festival in the woods! And what lovely decorated trees! Geek moment: this post reminds me ranger gatherings in our D&Dr games.

That is the BIGGEST fried bologna sandwich I have ever seen. LOVED those rocking horses.

I noticed that the floor with the brooms was very clean. Well swept?

This looks like so much fun! It's just the sort of festival we would love to attend. Thank you so much for sharing it with us.
