Maeystown, Ill. is about 1/2 hour away from St. Louis city!
They celebrate their Fruehlingsfest each year
on the ground of their stone mill in the historic part of town!
The river running behind the grounds is CHARMING with a capitol "C"!
This little German town puts on quite an event for one Sunday in May.....including antiques and plants! A wonderful way to spend the day!
Today was no exception.....
the clouds were there,
but the rain stayed away
the weather was perfect for some eating and shopping.
I found a darling crystal lamp for my laundry room
and an antique doll head.
That came home as well as a group of herbs
that are already planted in a large pot on the deck. A little wine garden was set up along the river as well as many street vendors selling potatoe pancakes, brats, fish and pork steaks. The little town is charming and worth a drive in the spring and summer of the year:)
