Portland Picnic

This past weekend was dominated by Hurricane Irene news, but Saturday in Maine was beautiful. A lot of friends from my Crafty Biz meet-up group were participating in the Portland Picnic so I headed up north for the day.

This photo booth had the coolest props ever! Look at those masks!

Here is Laura of Pansy Maiden, with her vegan bags.

Danielle of The Merriweather Council

Lisa of RedStaggerwing Designs

Jen of Zooguu

and Melissa of Pressbound

I also saw Jennifer Judd-McGee of Swallowfield fame. It was a beautiful day, a fantastic selection of artwork, the crowds were out, and everyone was talking about the pending hurricane and enjoying the event. After a few hours, I left the park and walked to meet-up with my husband and son. I saw this weather vane along the way-

Before leaving town, we took Peter out for a great Mexican dinner at Zapoteca– Yum! Great day all around. We left Portland in the early evening and headed back to Boston. We hit the first rain right at the New Hampshire line and a steady downpour once we were back in Massachusetts. We had rain, we had wind, but where I live, we came out mostly unscathed. We are lucky and thankful.

This oak leaf was on the porch this morning. The thing is, I have no idea where there is an oak tree any where near us. Yes, it was windy!

  1. Dear Friend,

    Thank you as always for sharing your inspiring post.

    I am dying to know how to get in touch with the photo booth vendor. I could really use the fox, badger, and owl head for an event I am hosting in October.

    Can you put me in touch?

  2. What a delightful event. That is indeed the most elaborate of photo booths. Hope you’re not too buffeted about or soggy by the extreme weather as of late.
