One of my favorite fall activities is to go to the various holiday bazaars in the Olympia area - always such a great place to get ideas, buy gifts, and just enjoy the creativity on display.

Today was one of the first of my list of favorite bazaars and it is an "All Season Bazaar" with Halloween, fall, Thanksgiving and Christmas items, as well as some for ....well, all seasons.

This bazaar is at the State Capitol Museum Coachhouse, and I spent a fun hour or so with a couple of friends.  Of course, often you end up making new friends as you stand side by side admiring or giggling at various crafts.

I told myself that unless I found a cute Christmas stocking for my grandson's first Christmas, I really was going to look, not buy.  Well, that lasted maybe 5 minutes until I saw a Christmas tree ornament that was WAY too cute to pass up.

And of course, there were the things that I was tempted to buy, but managed to hang on to a wee bit of will power realizing there are many bazaars still to come this holiday season.  (OK, fine!  I did buy two other things - but they were darling handmade necklaces that could NOT be resisted!  And they will make great gifts....)

Now waiting eagerly for the next of the "favorite" bazaars to roll around.  Holiday bazaars in Olympia - love them!!
