Once in awhile when the weather is nice there always seems to be a car show somewhere. Where people come together and drool over the gas guzzlers of old.
But I swear I should have some photos soon, Monday at the latest, went to a small car show (I mean small) but I should have a few photos out of that and in my last post I forgot to mention my small shield I bought at ren fest so I’m painting that up now I might post some progress photos tomorrow. And once the leaves here in Ohio start changing I should have some great fall images for you. Its just one of those weird points in the year where nothing is going on or no money to go anywhere. Have mercy I ramble a lot. See you guys tomorrow.
So here’s my new St. George and the Red Dragon of Wales hanging with The Union Jack and St Andrews I brought last time I went to Ren fest. My set is almost complete, just need Northern Ireland, well if I truly wanted to make the set I should buy the republic of Ireland as well, we’ll see.
Admittedly I goofed when I bought the Scottish Royal flag blanking for a moment thinking it was the red dragon so I ended up with an extra flag. No worries.
so here’s some of the other things I bought-
my Scottish dirk- gorgeous right?
My pentacle wind chime
My flute. I wanted a bodhran but the cheapest one I saw there was $68. OWWW! I do plan to try to learn it though. I also got this spiky ring but the photo sucked of it.
So I think that’s everything from Ren fest this time round ( I might do a second glace to see if there are more good pictures to which I will post), but hopefully we do go back this year and it doesn’t take another nine years.
I know I said I’d have pictures from the Egyptian festival but when I said that I was hoping against hope that it wouldn’t be a bust. Sadly it was.
I bring glad tidings my Lords and Ladies from the 16th century to this wonderful realm of WordPress and my followers around the net.
I attended the Ohio Renaissance Festival yester morn. There was great feasts to be had, lots of things to make you guineas disappear. and wonderful show for your eyes to behold. So take this trek along with me. Do not be frighted all are welcomed.
The lovely and most beloved Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth the First of England and Ireland was in attendance on this day and we were glad for it.
Many a musician played their instruments both with skill and grace that one could not help but be entranced.
The day was not without its hooligans, the pirates….I mean the actors put on quite a show and the tauntings of the tomato toss did not escape me.
The day concluded for me with a joust. A great but rather one sided battle.
With that I sent for my steed and with my pockets lighter, my arms filled with treasures I left for this century.
So that is my tale and I swear I will go now and edit so that you may see with thine own eyes the fun that was had. And with some hope I may return to the festival in the coming weeks, so that I may bring you more great tales.
I finally got my butt into gear and edited some more photos and I should have some more by next week from an Egyptian festival.
I felt bad for the lack of darren photos, so here’s two more.
The Wishing tree, you tie your wish to the tree and have the winds carry it to the gods. I would love to try it some time.
The artistry and craftsmanship on display was truly stunning (and expensive!!!!)
And the Crowds.
Pardon my absence yesterday I was geeking out over the Thor 2 trailer and completely lost my mind. Anyway here are the photos from the Dublin Irish Festival well at least of the band I was there to see. All the guys come from long long line of Irish music, just so awesome and the place was on fire. Oh and I got a CD signed by them I’ll take a picture of it and post it in a part 2 post. (I swear that one won’t be this insanely large.)
From Left to right: Darren Holden, Finbarr Clancy, Brian Dunphy and Martin Fury.
Just a quick little update:
I went to the Dublin Irish Festival today and got sooo many photos not so much of the festival its self, I had every intention to, but I went to see my favourite Irish band and it was WELL worth it. So you will see many photos of them so much that you just might feel like you were there. Should have them up by Wednesday.
Soooooo once again I’m stuck thanks to the lovely weather patterns of Ohio, for most last week we had 90+ degrees with humidity which is always fun (I really hope you guys are picking up the sarcasm here, its hard to sound sarcastic when typing) then this week they are projecting nothing but rain. There are a few events coming up that I’m dying to go to, and post pictures from, but till then I just wanted to keep you in the loop, so you didn’t wander off and unfollow my blog.
