Cold, rainy, windy, sunny, humid, hot. We had it all this weekend at Apple Butter Makin' Days in Mt. Vernon, Missouri. Luckily, most of the rain was overnight and our booth stayed nice and dry (thanks to a million tarps and ropes). There was a great turn out of enthusiastic patrons. Thanks to all who stopped by to browse or deliver well wishes (and those who helped me out). Everyone's support is greatly appreciated. If you purchased something from Traveling Chariot I hope you love it and that it brightens your day. And if so, do tell a friend. The feather quill pens were a hit, especially my sample one set out for all to try. I probably have thousands of signatures from the fair, from young and old, names, smiley faces, squiggles, splotches, and a few ambitious little drawings. I'm glad that Traveling Chariot got to be a part of your fall festival memories. I like reminding people that fun can still be had from simple, tactile things. People smiled, giggled, and were pleased with their inky accomplishments. Feather quills, miniature journals, and all the other journals that weren't purchased should be up for sale very soon at Traveling Chariot's Etsy Shop.
