Cameron, North Carolina, and an award

The historic town of Cameron, NC had their annual fall Antique Street Fair on Saturday. Hubby and I headed over to my sister's house for the weekend.

First was a stop at Starbucks for a cup of coffee. Otis and Riley love to stop at drive-in windows.

Of course, the guys opted to play golf while my sister and I planned to spend the whole day at the fair. Cameron is just south of Chapel Hill and Raleigh. We cross Lake Jordan.

Cameron is a small village with beautiful historic homes and wonderful antique shops. The fair is held every year ~ spring and fall.

This is the historic Muse Bros. Country Store.

Venders were lined up all along main street and in vacant lots.

Beautiful antique linens.

See these two hurricane lamps with the dangling crystals.........that's right, they came home with me.

This is Miss Belle's Tea Room and Antiques. We were going to have lunch here but the wait was too long so we decided to do it another time.
Isn't Miss Belle's a beautiful place?

More fun things.
The fair ended at 5:00pm and my sister and I were there till the very last minute. What a wonderful day! We met up with the guys, had a nice dinner and headed home the next morning.

This I bought at the fair too. Couldn't resist!


An Award!

This morning while checking my email, I noticed that sweet Suzanne at painterofthepast gave me an award. The Kreativ Blogger Award. Thank you, Suzanne! I'm honored and delighted that you thought of me. And I will pass this on to everyone, since all of you are creative in different ways and that's what makes visiting each and everyone of one of you such a joy!

Beautiful pictures of a charming town. There are so many of them across our country. I live in NJ and the leaves are just starting to turn. Love autumn, just love it.

The picture of Otis & Riley at the drive through is so cute. Our dog loves drive throughs too... when we eat in the car we call it Cafe Volvo.

Enjoy the dogs. They are such a special part of our lives. Cute pictures.

Oh, Donna! We love Cameron, too. And, we have eaten at Miss Belle's many times. My husband also loves the soda fountain in the "hardware" store.

I love your purchases - both of them.
