Dickens Festival Holly Michigan

Every year we try to go to the Dickens Festival in Holly. We love the "characters" playing the parts and putting on shows, as well as the antiquing and shopping. It is just a fun place to go. We usually choose the coldest day and go (at least that's how it seems) but this year it was not bitter cold. Here are some of the players.

I saw this neat sewing stand but it was a little too expensive for me! Cute huh?

This desk is so close to one at my dad's I had to take a photo so I can tell him how much it was. Oh, wait...maybe I shouldn't as I want that desk someday.
Desk like dads
Look who was wavin' at me! Yep, it was Santa!
I saw several things in Holly Hills Primitives that caught my attention and several had this cute little mouse on them.

At first I thought he was real. Then I looked a little closer.

She also had these really cool wooden icicles. They were so amazing.

The best thing ever though was this vampire hunters kit in the antique shop.

All in all it was a lot of fun. Every year I buy DD2 a "creepy elf" which I usually find in Holly. This year did not disappoint. He is a small little guy but great creep factor. Can't show him until after Christmas though!!

We did manage to get the tree up and the lights on the tree but that's about all. It was a busy weekend. I hope you all had a good weekend too.

Sounds like fun at Holly. I have my MIL's sewing stand. It still has some very old "stuff" in it.

Loved the quilt for your French grandson. Coins really help with the scrap supply!

Ok, how much for the desk??? You can tell me privately if you wish. My grandma had one, I loved it and played with it whenever I was there. I was supposed to inherit that desk, but somehow didn't, sigh! At 73 I would love that desk!
(addy so you can email me privately and Dad won't know, grin)
