On Friday we drove the 8 mile loop of the Gatlinburg's Art's and Crafts Trail. Done it before and it's a good way to spend a few hours. Everything was being decorated for Fall despite the hot weather.
The pumpkins were huge........
Of course there was a quilt store that I HAD to go in. I was very good though and only picked up a couple of zippers.
This was a Christmas store, not that you would think that with all the pumpkins out front. Got the fright of my life though when I walked around a corner in the store and bumped into Santa. Full beard and the outfit. First thing he asked me was had I been good, said I was trying to be, and he said at least you're trying!
This was a beautiful wedding chapel.
We have been in the G.Webb Gallery before and I love his and his daughter Cami's work. The work is still as lovely but I wasn't as tempted this time. I know last time we went back and forth on a piece of original art for ages. This time knowing we don't have the money to spend on it made it easier to visit. Though there was a stunning original piece for $10,000 I would have loved to have!
I bought a couple of things in this place, including a Limited Edition Serigraph by Debbie Littledeer for Our Little Sweetpea and a lovely little birthday card by Andrea Wilson
We also stopped in at Cherry Blossom Enterprises and bought a Cherry-Pit-Pac collar; and just to say it works..........
Have to say I have done my fair share of spending tourist dollars in the area!! I hope you have time to click on the links as my photos don't do any of the places and products any justice.
