craft show

Here are a few pictures from the craft show on saturday.  handy andy and i (bless his heart for wanting to hang out with me) had a great time, sold quite a bit and had the pleasure of being around some really fantastic local art and meeting some equally great artsy people. This gal and this gal were two of my favorites.The first one also happened to be the organizer of this event.
Well, anyway, here's my table. Lots of thanks goes to handy andy for the structural stability of the bunting dowels, meg + andy chalkboard and shutter display that held the mini chalkboards- all his ideas and all fabulous. :)

dollies galore
With all the tons and tons of snow our part of Colorado got in the last couple of weeks, there was also an abundance of fallen tree limbs. While it was very sad to see so many of our cities trees damaged or destroyed, i was pretty happy to go branch scavenging. Some of which i used to make this little hair clip tree.

These little owls were a new edition this year. They provided such a quick and creative outlet for me after making so many dollies...
Here's handy andy's handiwork- both the display and the chalkboards. Didn't they turn out great?! 



Thanks to our wonderful grandparents for watching all the kids so handy andy could hang out with me for over 1/2 the day! so fun.

oh, and i thought i'd give a little close-up of this lovely lady. Greta, if you're reading, i'd like to introduce you to your namesake. ;) Do you all read picnics in the park ? Because you should. She's one of my favorite destinations these days for inspiration in almost every department- style, motherhood, homeschool, authentic everyday living. Very refreshing.

Well, anyway, we had a great day at the show and since not everything sold, i'll be filling up my little shop here soon. Now to go tackle the ginormous mountain of folded, but yet to be put away laundry. :(

Megs, I love your display! And I love everything you made for it! Just beautiful and cute! Did you sell the dolly with green/white pokadots with yellow hair bow? If not...I think I might want to buy that for Sophie. Let me know! :)
