New Pretties

Some fun new items have come to our house to live.  First is this enamel ring.  I would never have thought to seek out something like this, but I saw a mom of one of my son's friends wearing a white enamel flower cocktail ring and thought it looked so fun!  I found this pretty blue one  and purchased it from Linkel Designs.


Next, I'd been eyeing this cute pincushion for weeks and finally decided to suck it up and buy one of my own from Feltmates.  And I love it!  As you can see, it is getting much use.


Finally something for Ella.  Saw this at TJMaxx for a good price, thought it was cute and bought it to give to Ella for a first successful day at summer day camp.  Miles got a Cars (the movie) writing set, but it's not pretty enough to post!


Just got home from another Farmer's Market.  Did a little better than last time, but not much.  My jaw dropped when one lady, who apparently was looking for me each week, paired up five towels and pot holders to purchase as gifts for friends!  I also sold another casserole carrier and heard a lot of oos and ahhs over them.  There were a lot of artists this week all squeezed in together so much so that I couldn't set up my chair and could not even stand up next to my booth without being in front of another artist's table or in front of another artist's body (he had enough room for a chair).  Luckily there was a bench across from my booth.  Unfortunately I was sitting in the sun all day.  It was a little hot in the full sun.

Not to say "I told you so"...but I think that I told you after your first Farmer's Market, that some lady was kicking herself for not buying something, and would be looking for you each week! Forget it...I'm not ashamed to tell you I told you so!!! ;)
