Art in the Barn

On Saturday family  got together  for day trip     Art in the Barn at the Dorchester Fairgrounds with  over 230  vendors.  Some tacky but also some very nice    items.

Brittany Sherry Rosanne and myself   
We got an early morning  start  to try to beat the crowds.
Blue skies and fresh temperatures
Sherry met a friend..
 By noon dark clouds  had moved in  and the   vending area had gotten very busy.
Crowds building
We all found some treasures. Sherry  got a lovely  sheer  top, and a Dorchester  heritage history  book, Brittany  added to her collection of Coca Cola  trays, Rosanne    purchased soaps  from Jezebel  Wantonly Decadent  Artisan  Soaps and Perfumes  Amusingly  names like Trollop, Harlot and  Floozy.  Rosanne suggested I try the hard shampoo  soap  which is great for taking when on trips..
We  then came back to  have lunch at my home. Made  several items but the  2 I particularly felt were successful were   caprese with  a balsamic reduction
 and Mary Berry scones  with homemade strawberry jam..
Been watching on PBS  The great British Baking Championship. hence the scones. 
Had fun  setting the tablescape  
Found a good use for vintage  teacups filled with water and added a tealight.  , great way to use    lonely  cups...
Was a fun day with  my daughters and granddaughter.,
