Market Day

Market Day has now come and gone.  It has been a long time
since I was a vendor at an outdoor show and I forgot how 
exhilarating and exhausting it can be all at the same time.
The good news is I sold many of my lovely treasures and 
they all found loving new homes.
The first piece to sell was the dark wood cane chair that was also
my first day, first blog and finally finished blogs. 
One of my favorite pieces, a picture I found at a yard sale is
going to a wonderful home in Missouri.  

Everything on this piece is new except the picture and the frame.
The matting, hardware and even the glass (which I 
accidentally broke) had to be replaced.  Gale, the lovely
lady who bought it is going to hang it in her lake
house in Missouri.  Gale was here in town for the Country
Living Fair, as were several of my other customers.  It
was so kind of their hotel to refer customers on down to our
fair, which didn't have an admission or parking fee.  Gale also
purchased my darling white cedar chest, which will be 
traveling back with her.

What follows are more pictures of our booth.  My sister, Lynette,
did all the beautiful paintings and boiled wool purses.

This little gourd topiary was also one of my favorite things
and I was thinking I would get to bring it home to set
on my mantel, but a lady snatched it up right at
the last minute.

This is a cute arrangement I made just using an old rusty
muffin tin I found at a flea market and adding some moss and
precious little pumpkins and gourds.

Here are the twins displayed amidst other pretty things.

I'm sad to say, only the pink paisley twin found a loving home
with a little girl.  The green chair came home with me.

All in all, it was a very good day.  Now I can relax a little and
catch up with my own home and garden.
Unfortunately, I think my daughter will be chomping at
the bit for me to start on her duvet cover and bed skirt.  She keeps 
reminding me how patient she has been and I respond 
with, "remember it's a Christmas present that I am graciously
not making you wait until December 25th for". I would bet
she'll be over today and inquiring as to when I'm going
to start on it.  More about the duvet cover in future blogs when I
get it finished.
