Celtic Festival Survivors

Andie and I and a few of her friends spent part of Saturday at the Sedalia Celtic Festival. It was our first Celtic event. There were several jewelry vendors and they had some amazing pieces for sale. Another interesting feature was the clothing; we couldn't help but gawk at the period costumes and "Xena Warrior Princess" apparel. One vendor said, explaining the Xena-wear, "What's England without a few Vikings?" At the end of our visit, we were pummeled by both rain and hail and came home soaked to the skin, but we did have a good time.

When we returned to the house, it was hot showers, warm clothing and a "survivor photo."

P.S. The kids say that they are not Emo. They just like "different." On the knitting front, I'm on my last skein of my sister's Feather & Fan. As soon as it's done, I'll post a photo.

Have a great week everyone!

Sounds like making good times in my book!
'we' and 'they' called us 'freaks' in our day, didn't mind that a bit.
Those kids look Just Fine to me!

"Different" is a good thing! Sounds like it was a good time.

p.s. I received a beautiful "punk" hairy ball in the mail yesterday. Thank you sooooo much; I LOVE it!

Different is what makes us individuals...Andie gets cuter every day..and Skand..is just equally handsome..
I have to admit, I've had my hair several weird shades before..and I was MUCH older..

Sounds like you all had a good time ..."What's England without a few Vikings?" ....hummm.I think I'd need to visit the North-East to see much evidence and also hear accents probably influenced by Scan dinavian languages.
