Dickens Fair!

Joe and I decided to have a just us date today. The girls are at Grandma's playing Barbie, the boys were left at KidsPark at noon. We drove to San Francisco and immersed ourselves in Londontown. We danced, we sang, we ogled, we ate, we laughed. We shopped. I went with a shopping list with 4 items on it and got three (a new bonnet, glass pen kit, turkey quills, and more watch necklaces. Couldn't find the necklaces) I also bought a hat pin because I needed one. We got to the naughty show at Mad Sal's, but arrived too late to get tickets for French Postcards (darn it). No less than 2 people came up to me and asked if I bought my sweater coat at Renn Faire and that they were sad they hadn't bought it.  I didn't take any pictures of us, but we will go back with all four children, possibly with friends, and I'll take some then.

We saw:
3 Tennant Doctors
1 Smith Doctor
1 Baker Doctor
Harry Potter
Mad Eye Moody
Edgar Allan Poe
Bill Sykes
Queen of Hearts

We missed HRM and the Prince Consort and Father Christmas.

I also saw a small sign, tucked into the corner of one of the shops that read:

He who works with his hands is a laborer
He who works with his hands and mind is a craftsman
He who works with his hands, mind, and heart is an artist.

I need to put that up somewhere.

Wonderful day!
