Views from the Swing!

Congratulations to Heather Baker and all the vendors who made The Strawberry Swing Craft Fair a great success! Despite the record setting heat this past Sunday, the artists and crafters set up the most lovely treasure-filled booths. And, I finally got to meet Heather in person, which made the trip and the event so very special! My mother and I took along my niece and two nephews who enjoyed themselves as much as we did! It was really great to meet so many new folks as well as some I've been admiring at a distance for so long. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to photograph everyone and many of my photos are quite grainy...but I'm preggo and it was over 100 degrees so I hope you'll find it to forgive me! xox
