Fun, Fun, Fun at the Loose Caboose Festival!!!!

Well this past Saturday was spent in Purcell, Oklahoma, the town where my friend, Ginger grew up. There is a festival the first weekend in September called "Loose Caboose Festival " and we decided to participate in it.
I picked up our friend, Sandra, around 7am and headed to Purcell which is about 40 minutes south of Oklahoma City.  We arrived about the same time as Ginger. Ginger got our packet and we proceeded to set up our booth. I haven't done a craft festival in 3 years, so I was excited to be doing a show again.  We got the Suburban unloaded,  moved it out of the way and started setting up the tables and unloading plastic tubs.  Here is the end result:
Ginger's husband, Danny, had a booth next to us. He owns DJ Trailers in Wayne, Oklahoma. A great way to advertise the business and enjoy visiting with people at the same time.
The day started out a little cool, which was a nice change from the heat. It did warm up in the afternoon and Sandra pulled out her umbrella to block the sun.
There are several antique stores along Main Street, so we took turns and did a little shopping. I found a cutter quilt that I couldn't pass up. We all came home with treasures.
And last of all, Ginger got her some new boots the night before the festival and I just had to take a picture of them. They are the cutest boots I have ever seen.  The lower part is brown suede with pink at the top like cowboy boots, only they are shortie boots. Really, really neat looking and she said they were very comfortable. Might just have to get me a pair for the winter.
Emma spent this evening (Sunday) with me while her parents went out. We played for a while then I gave her a bath, put her nightgown on, fed her and here she is ready to go to sleep.
 We rocked in the chair until she fell asleep and then I couldn't put her in the bed so I just held her until her Mama and Papa came to pick her up. Great times!!!!

Happy Labor Day to everyone. Be safe and have a great day!



  1. Looks like you had a great time. And your booth looks great! Hope it was profitable for you. And I think you should get a pair of those boots. I noticed them in the first picture. Ginger is quite the fashion icon. Glad you got to spend some time with Emma. She is such a little cutie pie! Can't imagine anything better than having her snuggle in your arms!!! Happy Labor Day!
