And The Winner Is!!!!!

First I want to thank you all for joining in the fun....I feel so lucky to have had so many entries for my first giveaway.  With everyone adding as many chances to win as they could I had 97 entries....YAHOO!!!!  As you can see I had a little helper.... he was the brave one to put his little hand into the spooky Halloween hat.  It is rumored to be magical.... :0)

Silas thought it was fun to wave the name around so I held on to his hand to get a photo of the name he picked but still he was all motion... with that said.... drum roll please. The winner of my Halloween giveaway is.... SUE- "WICKED FAERIE QUEEN".  Congratulations Sue...I'll be contacting you soon for your mailing info. :0)
On other news I know I promised you all a few photos from "The Spirit Of Friends" show in Lucas Ohio. The show was so different from all the other shows I've been to...this one was so relaxed and easy going.  It was also very family friendly.  The people were incredibly nice and heartwarming. Plus the primitive artists and antiques that we saw were fabulous.   As some of you know each year I choose a show I'd like to go to and we treat it as our family vacation.  A lot of times we drag my best friend Holly and some times my older sister too.
 In the past few years we had gone to the Ghoultide Gathering show in Michigan. It was hard not to go to that show again this year but we all agreed we needed something a little bit kinder to our wallets this year.  Plus we were meeting some good friends at the show as well.

Now almost all of you know I respect and admire Stacy Nash greatly so one of the first things I did was to go to this lovely lady's table. She was so sweet to let my hubby take a photo of us together.  I was so lucky to purchase one of her pieces... my first too. :0)  I'm sure I acted like a groupie....LOL...but I'm sure she gets that a lot from fellow stitchers.

Here are twos photo of just one of the tents....I loved that table but there was no way to fit it in my little car.  I kinda have a thing for old  tables... lucky for me someone put me out of my misery and purchased it because it was marked sold...LOL.
 Here's Silas enjoying his free cup of ice cream at the show.   They had free ice cream for everyone so we all had a yummy treat.  Plus Silas had his first cup of chocolate milk... I avoid giving him anything with to much sugar but we were on vacation so I gave in.  All I can say is I'm trying to spare him from having a wicked sweet tooth like his mommy.  I've never met a cookie I didn't like. ;0)
My partner in primitive crime...Holly sitting in front of the park entrance.  This was late in the day and we were ready to go back to our hotel.  I'm sure you're wondering where all the bags are.... well they're in the car already.....LOL.  Half way through the day we dropped off our goodies at the car so we had free hands to get into more trouble.  I'm sure you can tell by Holly's smile that she had a good time getting into trouble too.  :0) 

 I just had to take a picture of the crowd.  It was a beautiful 68 degrees and sunny so everyone was out and enjoying the day.
 Silas opted out of riding a real horse but he was more then willing to ride this little guy.... go little cowboy go.  I wonder if he'll ever ride a real horse.
 Lastly here is a picture of the farm house.  I've never heard of a state park owning a farm before but I must say it was beautiful.  I would go back to Malabar Farm anytime.  In fact we're all thinking that our next year family vacation might just be to Malabar Farm for "The Spirit Of Friends" show again. 
Before I go I must apologies for not having photos of what I purchased...some how I forgot that part but at least you got to see a little bit of this years family vacation in Ohio.

I hope this post finds you all happy and healthy my friends.
