This is my favorite photo of NICE,Caitlin's Booth. This year the Renegade Craft Fair was open until 10 P.M. making way for nice photos at dusk. This also meant that electricty was brought in.

Ready or Not, Here They Come!
AHH...My two sweet, beautiful kidos. Ya, Caitlin is blonde and Doug has nice brown hair. My side of the family is Danish, Welsh, and Scottish. All of my cousins on my Dad's side are mostly blonde, otherwise beautiful red heads with a couple of brunettes. The hubby side are dark brunettes. Doug very mcuh resembles my Father ( although he was a blonde) and my brother, Matthew. Their face structure and body build,even their mannnerisms are very close! Caitlin looks very much like her grandmother Fraser when she was a young women! Same GREAT SMiLe!!


A cute couple at Renegade! I like how Caitlin and her Dad put the NICE sign out in front of her booth. She also has a more finished sign that she decide not to use this time...ya, we forgot to bring it!

Here are some photos of some of the crowd.

Hi Mary,

Megan just told me that you visited with her fun! The rocker you painted for my daughter had a little girl on it that came from a Joan Walsh Anglund book. She used to make dolls when I was a little girl and also has written several darling books. I know your daughter would just love all of them as will you! I believe some of the books are still in print along with a few newer ones and of course ebay is a great resource also! All the best to you!

Oh when I was little I loved Joan Walsh Anglund books. My mother had several hid away in her china cabinet. I really wasn't supposed to get in there, but I would sneak a peak when I could. I am a doll maker and vividly remember those cute little pictures. I am writing to tell you that I do not have a music profile but my four teenagers are music lovers that could be someone they like to listen to. I am not familiar with the name though. Thank for posting to my blog. I am still very new at this.
