Last weekend I attended the Hoggetowne Medieval Faire in Gainesville, its been a few years since I attended the Faire so I was curious to see what was new and I have to say despite the cold gray day and muddy grounds the Faire was well attended. In fact, the gray, cold misty day had many fair goers commenting it was like being in England which was cool since this year the theme was King Arthur. I didn't bring my camera so I don't have a single photo to post.
There were several new vendors in the marketplace, I love browsing the vendors almost as much as I like watching a good jousting match. One vendor was selling herbs and such, when I walked buy the most intoxicating scent drew me back, the price was great at $2.00 per cup or three cups for $5.00, I purchased a cup each of lavendar, rose buds and heather. I haven't taken them out of the bag and the entire area where the bag is stashed has a lovely aroma of flowers.
On Friday the day before the medieval fair I attend the Busy Bees of Belleview Quilt Show, always lovely display of quilts and this year in keeping with the theme there were some lovely vintage quilts on display.

Well thats about all I have been up to this month so far, there are other Renaissance and Medieval Fairs coming up in the next few weeks I'll try to remember the camera.
