Sunday Grateful: Bardstown Festival – October 13, 2013

Watching my grandson play football was on the agenda…

He’s eight!  120915_004

A sad day for the team… being beaten soundly!

but, being with their buddies… out on a Fall day… Grandparents, parents and sister with

friends watching… 130817_001

It can’t be all bad!

And since it was the last game of the season… a reprieve from practices… quick suppers… hurrying… and being tired all of the time…

Our next agenda item was the Bardstown Autumn Festival…

downtown-walking

and not far from the football game…

A perfect combo!…

A quick early lunch from McDonald’s since we had no breakfast,,,

and then on to see all of the crafts and food people have made…

We lucked out in finding a close parking space for free…

The going rate was $5.00 at most places…

It was very crowded and had only been open for 2 hours…

You could smell foods like kettle corn… pork sandwiches… peppers / onions with sausages and sweets…

Then we saw fudge, cakes, candies, sandwiches, drinks, popcorn, ice cream…

Probably good we had just eaten… kept me from all of those goodies!

We walked and waked…

Of course, I was looking at everything!…

Even Bobby looked a lot… getting ideas for his wood working projects…

Lots of orange (autumn colors) in door hangings… decorations… but, Christmas was there too!

Everything you can imagine… Doll clothes, pet items, girly scarves, hats, jewelery…

Metal lawn art… spread out under the trees…

Blow ups for the kids to play in…

Hand made wood items, pottery, sun catchers, purses, quilts…

I always buy homemade soaps

Pretty, useful and smell so wonderful… Making nice gifts for someone…

I did find these unique “rusty” Christmas Stockings that are candle holders

I wouldn’t actually burn them… looks like it could be a little dangerous… but, will make a cute little decoration hung somewhere at Christmas…

We covered the whole area…

and by then we were ready for a hotdog and Cherry Lime – Ade from Sonic…

on the way out-of-town…
