A day at the Art Festival!

Yesterday my friend, Samantha, and I went to the Winter Park Art Festival. It was such a beautiful day. It's the biggest art festival in the country. There were hundreds of people who signed up to be a vendor at this art festival and only 200 get selected. Very upscale, and one of those look but you can't buy type things, ha. The City of Winter Park itself is amazing. We were hoping we could find some cute reasonably priced jewelry, that wasn't going to happen. I do have a funny story to share though. We stopped at one of the vendors that was carrying some jewelry and I tried on a bracelet and without me realizing I never took it off and I just walked away. So there I am just walking and look down at my wrist, and what do I see?? Yes, the bracelet still on my wrist. I about freaked and started laughing. I couldn't believe I did that, LOL! So I walked back to the vendor, and the lady never knew I had walked away with it, and never knew I had come back and put the bracelet back. Which was kind of scary to think that anyone could have taken her stuff and she would never have known. Good thing I'm an honest person.

And the whole time we were worried that my car would get towed because we parked next to a towing sign but we took our chances because it was horrendous trying to get a parking spot and we just got lucky, and thank goodness my car was still there. If it wasn't, man wouldn't that have been a story to tell, haha!

Enjoy the pictures of our day and unfortunately Sam and I didn't get our picture together :o(

It was a GREAT time. Tons of shops and TONS of food!!! It was a wonderful day to be outside!!

The place was packed!


Of course the day wouldn't be complete with a funnel cook. I have an addiction, what can I say?


Umm, so yeah, very interesting piece of art. Who comes up with this kind of creativity??


This is a picture of a sumo wrestler with some grapes, thought it was too funny!!


Being goofy!!


And after a wonderful day of walking around and looking at the cool pieces of art and jewelry, it was time to go...


This was a clock that was for sale. I thought it was so cool!!!! :O)

So that was our day in a nutshell and then when I came home I plopped myself on the couch and helped myself to the movie...



It was AWESOME!! Thank you Sam for getting this for me. You're a true friend, haha :O)

Have a GREAT Sunday, everyone!!
