~laundry day~

Well it was laundry day here - but it was an odd load on the clothes line today! I was given a large box of ties from Michelle it was an AWESOME assortment of ties - few solids & there were ones with birds, butterflies, flags, totally retro/vintage & everything in between!

I will be making LOTS of goodies from these - thanks!

Also - the market was a huge success - thank you to all who came down - I will also be there tomorrow morning - College Ave, Appleton, right outside Starbucks - hope to see you there!

Say What!

The summer Market starts THIS SATURDAY! Yikes! You would think since it always starts at the end of June one would spend all winter getting stocked up for it. Well, I tried that......and luckily for me the shops I consign in have been busy so I was sending them my stock. But that leaves me a little under-prepared for the market.......but I'm not worried!

My herb garden is growing like crazy. I am trying to cook with the herbs everyday. I am still waiting for my lavender to flower though........I am looking very forward to that!

Life Is Good.....

We are very lucky to have a nice little beach very close to our house.....we have been spending as much time as we can there lately. But with our crazy Wisconsin weather it can be 85 and sunny one day, 65 and rainy the next!

The week in review....

So - I am sorry I haven't been posting often - still just a busy-bee.....

Over the holiday weekend we spent time outside...went to the beach, played in the pool (it's a little kid one), put together the girls swing set, gardened, crafted and somehow felt relaxed the whole time!
I am the featured artist at Dainty Daisies this weekend for Gallery Walk - feel free to stop by & check it out. I'll have new cuff bracelets (this is my hand after sanding/polishing the cuff metal!)

I will also have a bunch of new bookmarks - they make great grad or teacher gifts too!
I am off to enjoy a summer shandy & get some pendants done.
