I love Parades!

Especially the Handmade variety. Bright and early yesterday morning dear bloggy friends began arriving and Handmade Parade was on its way. Everyone's tables were lovely and left me wishing I had millions of dollars to spend on lovely things.

The best part of the day was being able to visit and talk to such wonderful, creative people. I look forward to more events like this! It was really exciting, because for many of us, this was our very first craft show. It was a beautiful sunny day, with the only downfall being a nasty wind. Every once in awhile a big gust would come through and knock over displays and product.

With gasps and giggles the girls would rush around picking up their stuff and creating ingenious little ways of keeping their stuff firmly on their tables. It was fun, nonetheless! We had mother's day shoppers and people looking for wonderful, handmade stuff. It was great!

And look! Peanut got a new dress courtesy of Bitter Betty Industries! Dosen't she look sweet? She is quite the girly girl, because she was pretty thrilled to be getting new duds. You can't see in this pic, but there is a SUPER cute appliqued crow on it, too. My flickr has better pics of the dress and of all of the booths at Handmade Parade. Check it out, becuase almost all of these fab gals have said they want to march again in September for the Handmade Parade Fall Fest!

My super sweetie pie partner in crime Missy. She was sick and a tad grumpy, but she looks all sweetness here, huh? Love ya, Missy!

Check out everyone's fab photos here and here oh and here, too!
