Fall Festivals

The fall festivals have come ond gone already...I cant believe how fast the year flew...I usually use the festivals to stock up on raw materials for the next years projects...so rummaging around through all the junk piles at Pecatonica, Spoon River and Utica's own burgoo here in Illinois has become a yearly ritual...some years are always better than others, but this year the yield was very disapointing...no really cool stuff at all...other than a bee keepers knife that I'm restoring for Bonnie. She is going to try to start a hive next spring...and the knife seemed an appropriate addition to both her knife collection and bee keeping supplies...any way, theres a few more antique shows to go, and theres always the indoor flea markets...so Im not worried yet, but it is a bit sad to see pickins' gettin' so slim...
