Playing Like a Tourist

As I have mentioned before we live in a somewhat touristy area. In the Fall lots of folks travel to the North Ga mountains to look at Fall color, etc. Today we traveled a little farther up into the tip of North Carolina. Franklin, NC to be exact. On the way up we stopped at lots of flea markets and yard sales. We were looking for certain items and found some of them. Also puppy came along for the ride. Since she has become an escape artist in the back yard I can't leave her there for long periods of time by herself for fear she will take an adventure.

We stopped for the last day at a somewhat local fruit and vegetable. We purchased a 1/2 bushel of apples to dry in the dehydrator.

At the first flea market we visited we hit pay dirt and found a really great lady that sold herbs. Bought a great tea for curbing appetite and some other herbs to ward off colds.

The other items I was looking for is baskets. I plan on making Christmas baskets full of home made goodness for presents.
