WX Faire and a Pay It Forward

Good morning to you all. Hope you had a happy weekend, didn't it just fly by? Saturday was kind of rainy here but I did run a few errands and had a nice lunch at Chevy's. In the evening we watched a little TV, and I worked on a Christmas project. I wanted to get to bed early because Sunday is our fun day at the WX Peddlers Faire, and we always get up sooo early for this. It was still raining when I went to bed ....I woke up at 3am and it was pouring. Oh, no maybe no faire this month, but by 6am there was just a light mist and we decided to take a chance and go. We were prepared. Hot coffee, warm clothes, gloves, scarfs, umbrella and my boots.

Aren't they the cutest? My honey bought these for me, very fashionable don't you think? I wanted to walk in all the puddles, but just waded in a few.
Even with the rain there were still lots of vendor. Here are my goodies. I love the little green tick tock, and the silhouette with the red foil...I think the lady is dressed for a holiday party.

Blessings ~ # 9 Warmth and comfort from our furnace, a convenience we take for granted. ~~~~ #10 Starting the day with a nice cup of chocolate.

The other day I visited Michelle, at I'm A little Teapot, and she is having a Pay It Forward......what fun. I enjoy crafting and signed up right away. Here's how it works.

I will send a handmade gift to the first three people who leave a comment on my blog, requesting to join this PIF exchange. I don't know what the gift will be yet, and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week, but you will receive it within 365 days, that is my promise. The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog. If anyone is interested in joining me, I will send a handmade gift to the first three to leave a comment with their promise to pay it forward.
Hope you join in the fun too. Linda

Thank you about the china set. I am very proud of it. I plan to use it for Christmas, I will have the entire clan here. Every three years it is my turn. I always like to have the unexpected little thrill. I hope the China does the trick(they are all Polish except me)!!! I love your boots, I would love splashing around in then too! Can't remember the last time I did that, That's sad isn't it. Kinda of reminds me of Wanda's post about stopping and doing the things we want to do. Have a wonderful tomorrow
