War Eagle Weekend

This weekend was one that I look forward to all year: The annual Fall Craft Fair at War Eagle Mills and Farm! Crafters and enthusiasts travel from all over the South to congregate in the tents, barn, and convention centers that make up a pretty big take over of little old Northwest Arkansas. 

It's pretty much always a family affair.

We've got food vendors and tents of crafts. Only a few allowed me to take photos within the booths themselves, and I always asked first! Stop number one was these amazing Hawaiian deck chairs, complete with foot rest and cup holder! Maybe later in life we'll own a pair of these for camping.

Then I got to see the booth where my little ceramic tile came from. Maybe you've seen it before in this post.

Here's her info. 

The weather was perfect and the scenery was absolutely stunning.

Baby sister couldn't resist the urge to frolick.

Across the river is the mill itself, and a ton of other booths!


Cars everywhere... and we were here pretty early on Friday. Usually on Saturday there are two or three more lots this size that are full.

We finally ended the afternoon with some family time.


The weekend was fun, productive, and exhausting, as illustrated here. I walked away with a pretty rag rug for my kitchen, a cute little Christmas tin, and a ceramic spoon rest. That's about all I had a good budget for. We'll be back for the Spring craft fair... and if all goes according to plan, it will be on the other side of the booth!

Looks like a wonderful time! We missed you, and perhaps that is why we spent time this weekend sewing!!! That's right, the Richardson girls have dusted off the Brother and are proud to say we abandoned dull chores for some crafting fun. Well worth it. Can't wait for you to join us. Have a great week!
