Oh, the aching feet...but it was worth it!

This morning my mom, aunts, cousins and I all went to a craft fair. Each year our family pilgrimages to the craft monstrosity and we all purchase large amounts of gifts and craft decor for our homes. Here are my purchases from today's pilgrimage:

I have a new decorating passion (which apparently most of America does too since it is was EVERYWHERE today), it's rustic. I love antiques, but haven't ever purchased many. I have an old window which hangs in my dining room. I love it! My husband is not a big fan and likes to make fun of the window. Well, as you can see, there are new "rustic" purchases. On the far right, there are two pictures. I LOVE them. They were all over the craft monstrosity today and I was a major fan.

I also purchased some fall decor, which my home is desperately in need of. Don't you just LOVE the pumpkin on the left. Or the pilgrims? So cute! The snowman teapot is for our interim babysitter as as "thank you" for putting up with the crying, screaming and gnashing of teeth, which she has endured. SSSHHHH! Don't tell her!

Thanks to my dad for watching the rambunctious redheaded 2 year old while we shopped this morning. I believe they both had an enjoyable time.

Currently the house is quiet as napping ensues all around me. We have lots of plans this evening such as early trick or treating for family members and a possible hayride with other family. Of course, pictures will be included, which I am certain each and every one of you are sitting on the edge for your seats for.
