Craft Time In Florida

One of the wonderful things about living in Florida is the reward we get for putting up with the hot summer..  Amazing weather and Craft Shows! We started out in Windermere, the next town over.  It is a beautiful little town on 5 lakes.
This is Windermere Design, the shop that sells my ornaments, owned by Mike and Doug, they have 
wonderful taste, obviously....

And here are my ornaments, at their outside booth.
Then we went to Finders Keepers, she has great stuff and found a terrific handbag for $8, I am thinking that because it is from Windermere, home of Tiger Woods and many more famous people, I may have gotten myself an expensive bag, only to find out it is  worth about $40 new, oh well I like it anyway. It is no Coach but it will do.
  It still is nice, I like it. 

Then there is Mount Dora. It is a town about 35 minutes from Ocoee, great town. Little shops on a Lake, resturants, very fun place to go and linger around. This Craft Show is a big deal, crafters come from all over, New York, Indiana, hundreds of them, as you can see from the photos below.  

We finally did get crafted out, I think the downside of moving to Florida or moving anywhere is we had to get rid of so much that the idea of bringing anything new in would have to go through so much consideration. But it was very fun and I got alot of ideas. I hope the crafters did well, I walked past Donna Dewberry of One Stroke Painting fame, I got a kick out of that. I am not a big One Stroke Painting fan, but I admire the fact that she built a following, while raising a family.
 Anyway, we had a great day.
