Thanks to a buy one get one free coupon, Mimsie and I started our annual Country Living Fair expedition with a delightful new twist ~ Caribou Coffee! Their signature White Pumpkin Mocha is simply to die for. I have never consumed something that so perfectly epitomized autumn's delights into one medium to-go cup. Mimsie's dark chocolate turtle mocha was equally yummy.
Fair day dawned bright, clear and just crisp enough to warrant tights and a light sweater. (Fall fashions are my very favorite, so this brought me much happiness).
The variety of fabric pumpkins was astounding. Each vendor seemed to have their own variation that was equally clever. Tweeds, velveteens, cottons, patchwork... amazing!
Everywhere we went, Mimsie and I discovered some nook or cranny brimful of fall's abundant goodness.
Watching this skilled craftsman mold his pottery in real time more deeply ingrained how wonderful it is to be able to by items that are handcrafted, one-of-a-kind originals. Inspiration popped out at us from every vendor's tent and autumn vignette we passed. I look forward to sharing more of our adventures in the coming week's posts.
Until then, may you embrace autumn's graceful beauty to the fullest!
