Sunday Sightseeing

Let's rewind to Sunday.  It was a beautiful fall day full of history, art and fun.  My mom, sista, aunt and I went to Winston-Salem for the Piedmont Craftsmen Fair at the Benton Convention Center.  The fair gives local artists an opportunity to showcase their art, clothes, pottery, etc.  There were so really beautiful things and it was so neat to see how creative people can be!

After leaving the show, we drove through Wake Forest's campus and through downtown on our way to the Reynolda House.

The Reynolda House was home to the Reynold's Family (RJ Reynolds, founder of Reynolds Tobacco) in the early 1900's and is now a museum.  The home is absolutely gorgeous and the addition houses a museum of art, which was featuring a Modern Masters exhibit.

Across the street from Reynolda Village is Graylyn which is a beautiful estate and conference center.  It would be a gorgeous venue for a wedding for sure.


We finished our Winston tour with lunch at The Loop then heading back to the boro.  It was such a great day and I saw so much of Winston that I'd never seen before!
