Happy Birthday!

For my birthday this weekend, the family went camping near Branson. I love going to the arts & crafts festival held in the fall at Silver Dollar City! Lots of lovely handcrafted wares and oodles of skilled artisans -- coopers, basketweavers, blacksmiths, jewelers, painters, weavers, woodworkers, soapmakers, glassblowers, weavers, chandlers, quilters. You name it! Handcrafted paradise.

Camping in the fall is lovely. The evenings were cold, but we were snug and warm in our tiny teardrop trailer. I discovered crock pot liners and made overnight breakfasts with those, so clean up in the mornings was a snap! Off we went on our adventures for two fun-filled days. Home again, we're tired but happy. Lovely memories made. :)


  1. How fun!!! It has been years since we've been to Silver Dollar City. Your trailer is adorable!! Happy Birthday!!!!

  2. That sounds fantastic! And you went at a beautiful time of the year.

  3. We were supposed to go down there Halloween weekend, now it has been cancelled-I am glad you got to go!!! It is so much fun!!!
