This morning, the manthing and I headed up to the John C Campbell Folk School up in Brasstown, NC for the annual festival as I had won some tickets from Tipper over at Blind Pig and the Acorn. It is a beautiful trip any day but this morning the fog was pretty thick and it made for a very nice early fall ride.
There were some nice crafts, neat demonstrations and good music there.There were a few things I would have loved to buy if I had a normal house that is not a dust magnet. But, I don't so I didnt buy anything. They have some beautiful buildings and gardens at the school and I gave a lesson on making okra coffee substitute to the work study girl who didn't know what they were going to do with their wayyyy overgrown okra. There was a fall fairy who was very colorful and a way cool guy. For a little minute I felt like I was at a rainbow family gathering. I also got to meet Tipper from the blind pig and the acorn. Good thing she was able to pick us out of the crowd as I would have NEVER recognized her amongst all the people. Sometimes looking different than most is a GOOD thing.
The festival was a nice little get a way and if you are in the area and have never been, it is supposed to be another beautiful day in the mountains tomorrow.
