Wrap-up: Burnt Creative at Summer Solstice

Way back in June, Sara and I vended at Blackburg’s Summer Solstice festival through Burnt Creative.  The festival drew a huge crowd and we had a great time both representing Whispering Willow, and enjoying the sights and sounds around us.

Early in the show, we saw this and I literally had to run down the street to catch a photo….

…and yep, that scale is pretty close to right.  It was hot and he (she?) was on stilts and covered in metally-looking pieces. It was very hard not to continuously stare.  Apparently he/she is a regular fixture at the Virgina Tech games.

We were set up right across the street from Patina South.  Tracy and I have run into each other quite a bit over the festival season and it is always fun to chat.

Another friendly face is Kiona from Lucky Accessories.  I see her at tons of shows and never seem to get a decent picture of her adorable jewelry.  This time?  Success!

The High Fiber was also present.  She makes adorable tea towels and onesies.

Before Sara and I headed home, we had a chance to visit with Sara’s friend Colleen and her family.  Remember how Colleen was pregnant the last time we headed to Blacksburg?

Caroline & Family

Well, meet Carolyn.  Isn’t she something?
