Bronck House Museum Harvest Festival
I spent Sunday with my best friends at a harvest festival in Coxsackie, NY, at the Bronck House Museum grounds. It was a gorgeous day, and the buildings on the property were beautiful. I can't believe I've lived so close to this place for so many years and I had never stopped to see the museum. The thirteen sided barn was very cool, as were the stone houses, the barns, and the other outbuildings. There were crafters there, and another friend of mine had a booth. It's the one in most of the pics....she had some beautiful things...felted pumpkins, indian corn, and assorted colonial reproduction accessories. Her vignettes were great....she used old doors as backdrops and screens...very cool. She keeps saying she's going to open a shop someday. I wish she'd do it already! The name of her business is Tin Angel. I bought a deliciously clove-scented kitchen sachet in her booth that is making my downstairs smell refreshingly autumnal!
We finished the day with a trip to the movies. We saw "Eastern Promises" with Viggo Mortenson. I can't say I'd recommend it. I guess I was expecting it to be better...or for Viggo to be sexier or something. Instead, he was just kind of creepy. If you DO go to see it, don't say I didn't warn you. The violence is quite graphic.
