Dicken's Festival Holly Michigan

Yesterday DH and I went to the Dicken's Festival in Holly MI.  We try to go every year.  They have some amazing antique shops and we like to spend the day together.  First though I need to tell you that I finished the embroidered towels.  So if you have not done so then go to the post before this one and enter for a chance to win them.

Tea Towels all finished

Here is a peek down the main street

And the best two things I found are the Holy water font and the musical angel

So all in all it was a great day spent with DH, getting a few gifts and having a great time! Today I have to finish cleaning and I am *hoping* to get some Christmas stuff put out. I need to order a few more gifts online too. If this isn't enough, my car is making a bad noise and DH thinks we may need to get a new car! I have no idea why, since this one only has 200,000 miles on it! I hope it is something easily fixed with not a lot of money. Anyway, have a great Sunday and don't forget to visit the giveaway post and leave a comment to be entered to win.
