Ocean Pines Craft Show

Wow did we luck out. We signed up to participate in the Ocean Pines Crafts Show outside of Ocean City, MD on Saturday. As most of you, we have been experiencing the hot, hot temperatures the past month, and were very concerned as to what the weather would be. The last time we set up for this particular show was 3 years ago and it was an extremely hot day and I uttered the words more than once…”I’m melting, I’m melting” in my best wicked witch voice. Well Saturday was a beautiful day…mid 80’s, breezy and our space was under the trees.

This was also the Lucy’s first craft show. At first she wasn’t too happy being tied to a tree, right next to where we were setting up, but once she realized we weren’t leaving her by herself, she settled in. She was so happy to visit with all the folks who stopped to talk with her. But she wasn’t too fond of a large, black marshmallow of a dog who wanted to give her a kiss. She snapped at this darling boy. Guess our Lucy just isn’t that kind of girl.

I love to do shows like this…good weather, great customers and the ladies of the Pion’eer Craft Club, who put on this festival do an amazing job. The show next year will be held on Saturday, August 4, 2012 in White Horse Park, Ocean Pines, Maryland.


  1. Really nice that the weather was decent and you had a shade tree! It looks like a great way to spend a weekend!

  2. Hi, Pat! I was on a 'blogging break' and just getting back into doing posts! I am happy you had a good time at the craft show. Do you SELL stuff there?? Also, I am SO glad to see Lucy so fit and happy. I remember praying for her a while back when she wasn't feeling well! I also see some other posts below, with an ADORABLE LOOKING LITTLE BOY!!! I think I have to go visit that post next! ;)
    P.S. Thanks for visiting me, and if you go to a movie, go to RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES! Someone told me that the Cowboys and Aliens one was only "ok" and they should have waited for it to come on video. But I can tell you, the 'apes' one was GREAT! That capture-motion special effects was fantastic.

  3. Gloria...yes we were set up at the show selling our signs. We had done it for years and have missed the passed two years due to family weddings. Always a nice show to participate in.

  4. Looked like a perfect day and setting! Lucy looks like she approved too!

  5. Looks like a very nice event. Lucy you hang in there. You don't have to kiss a slobbery mouth guy just because he's dark and handsome.

  6. Pat,

    Was wondering if you and Louie ventured down to the Pines to do the show or not. Glad the weather was good for you. how is Lucy suppose to get herself a boyfriend with manners like that? Hope the show was a good one.


  7. I'm so glad you had good temperatures for the show. I'm with Lucy - no kissing on the first meeting.

  8. You were so lucky to have such a lovely day for the show. Hope you managed some good sales..
    Love Sybil
