A few friends and I headed north early Friday morning to Hopkington, N.H. to attend an artisans' holiday fair. I purchased some handmade ornaments including an adorable angel. According to the tag, these angel ornaments were also selected for the White House Christmas tree. ( HGTV takes a look at the process of decorating the White House each year. The White House Christmas 2014 program will air next Sunday 12/14 and Monday 12/15. I always look forward to this show. ) Anyway, back to the fair . . . there were some wonderfully decorated wreaths for sale and two of them came home with us. I forget what other items were purchased.
We passed this barn with the large American flag while driving toward Henniker. My friends are always willing to stop, so I may hop out to take a quick photo. We were on our way to Quilted Threads, a favorite N.H. quilt shop. Next it was time for lunch at Daniel's which is just down the street from the quilt shop. Since it was still early, we also stopped in Concord to check out a few of its interesting stores in the center. We made it home with time to spare before attending our quilting group's Christmas party at Heart in Hands in Weymouth. It was a really full, lovely day.
