In the Spirit of Friends ~

In the Spirit of Friends was held at Malabar Farm in Lucas, Ohio on Saturday. Malabar Farm was built by Pulitzer Prize winning author Louis Bromfield. In 1945, the wedding of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall took place at the farm. It was a perfect day for the show ~ sunny and pleasantly warm.
Here's a few pieces stitched by Bobbie ~ The Evening Stitcher. By the end of the show there was not too much left in her booth.
That's Bobbie on the left and Sherry ~ From Sherry's Heart, on the right.
Here's a shot of Alice's wonderful wools. If you don't already know Alice, stop and visit her at A Day in the Life.
The pictures do not do these rugs justice. It is the work of Marilyn Willmore. She was one of the artist's chosen to be included in the 2010 Early American Life Magazine's Directory of Traditional American Crafts.

This is Rhonda's booth ~ My Glory Stars. Her work is simply amazing :) I'm not sure if all the items in the first picture were made by her, but I know that she did the work in the next two pictures.

A few really neat hooked rugs. The two rooster rug on the left is a vintage rug.
This woodcarver (whose name I did not get) is also in the 2010 Early American Life directory. His carvings were amazing.

I just loved this little smokehouse!
If fall antique/primitive/craft shows don't end soon, I will be eating cat food BEFORE I My goal is to eat Fancy Feast from a crystal goblet, but if I'm not careful, I'll be feasting on the store brand instead. I'll show you what I bought at a later date.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
Pug hugs :)

Thanks for sharing those great photos. I hope you bought lots and lots of fun stuff. Fancy Feast -- that cracks me up! Especially since I can relate. :)

Great pictures Lauren! My eyes are buggin' out of my head this morning!!! LOL! Nice pic of Bobbie and Sherry! I can relate to the cat food thoughts... ther'es just something about beautiful hand made items that makes me forget my rational sense! :-)

Rats, rats, double rat rats. I so wanted to go to that but forgot all about it. Judging from the pictures, it's a good thing. I think I would for sure be eating eat food. Looks like a great show. Thanks for the links to the sites. I will check them out.

Lauren, awesome pic's! Thanks for sharing!! All those stitcheries and punch needle pieces have me drooling.. I don't know if I would have been able to behave myself. I'd be in the pet isle right along with ya shopping for dinner lol.

I am adding to the chorus of those thanking you for pictures of the event. I am like you and would have to have attended with only a certain amount of cash in my back pocket. Otherwise I would have filed up the back of my little SUV.

I liked seeing Alice's booth. I am in love with her marbelized wools and that sheep rug might have had to come home with me.

Peace to you.
