A whole day.
Lately those have been far and few between, with lots of deadlines and other things happening...Quilt Market in Houston at the end of the month, CHA only 3 months away (weren't we just there?), prepping kits for Waxahatchie, TX on the 18th and 19th.
It was a beautiful day to be out in the warm fall weather at the Three Speckled Hens Show in Paso Robles, CA with my friend Nancy, and my niece Courtney. We left at 6:30am for the hour drive north on the 101. Arriving in time to get pretty darn close to the front of the line.
I like to be at the front of the line!
We also paid an extra $5 for the early-bird entry, to shop without the crowds, get first pick of the goods and stay out of the afternoon heat... always a good choice!
Take a personality test?
Or there was this guy that was waving a stop sign!
Time to pick out our pumpkins! Would you believe, between the 3 of us, we bought at least 12 pumpkins in varying sizes to display and give away? Such a fun fall tradition for us! The hardest part is carrying them to the car!
If only I needed a ladder now! plenty of them here.
We couldn't leave without one more stop to see our friend in the basket!
Before we left town we stopped in downtown Paso for lunch at Odyssey World Cafe - Yummy!
Then we stopped in at some of our favorite shops around the square - Firefly and Soul Tree (a fabulous shoe store).
And one final stop at Birch, my favorite fabric shop just down the street from the cafe (and all within walking distance).
What a great day off!
carry on, paula
