LOTS of Show n Tells.........Make sure ya got time!

Hey Peeps!!!

I got lots to show n tell.......

Ya ready for this? Got a beverage and a snack?

Ok



First......I finally got some pics of my booth!!!





We still have to put up a wall of some sort on the left side!

Ive actually sold quite a bit in a weeks time, actually 5 days:) because they are closed on Sun and Mon!

I received this WONDERFUL email on Saturday! Imagine my suprise when I opened my email to read this!

"Hi there.....I am Susannah......maybe you have seen me commenting on some of the blogs. I do not have a blog. I wish I did ..but maybe someday.

The reason why I am writing this is because I found your blog and fell in love with the witch holding the pumpkin in your header. As I began to read ...I realized that you just started a booth in Medina. When I read - Medina - I ran to tell my husband that we just had to go there. (We live in Lima, south of Rochester and Henrietta.) Well, today was the day! Yes, I did buy the witch and the pumpkin. I am so very happy. I could not stop there so... I bought the wonderful crow with the sunflowers, too. BTW, There was another lady there that really wanted a witch and a pumpkin. The gal at the desk said she was going to call you for her.

Anyways, thank you for making the witch, little pumpkin and the crow with the sunflowers! I am so pleased! Your work is very prim and I love that. There were so many of your things that I wanted. You are a very talented person. Oh, and I loved your booth!

I think I shall have to go back to Medina soon.....LOL!

Sincerely,
Susannah"


OMG - How AWESOME is that???

Im STILL floored!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Janene of Primitive Lifestyle and I did a swap and she sent me the most wonderful box of goodies! Look at ALL of this........



LOOK at the bowls and ragballs.....









I thought the ragballs were my favorite but upon further inspection I gotta tell ya, these bowls are SO AWESOME!

See, Ive been meaning to get pics of my goodies for days now, when my package came I put it in my room so my rats (kids) wouldnt get into it, the weekend flew by, and on Sunday my livingroom got ripped apart in a spare of the minute wild hair decision to paint the livingroom so everything in the livingroom got put in my bedroom and i couldnt get to my box of goodies!!!! Whew!

So today I was able to finally get some pics and get them on here to share!

Thank you Janene - I am blowm away and love everything. I think you will do wonderful if you decide to sell in a shop:)


Oooooooooohhhh, there is also a little jewelry box that Kindle scarfed up and I forgot to grab a pic of.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So, on to my livingroom! Yeah, Ive had the paint for months. It was all about trying to find the time to start and finish, or hopefully finish! Thank you to my AMAZING husband for all his help with this project. He HATES painting.

We started Sunday morning, the walls ended up taking 3 coats! I still have the moldings, upper and bottom to finish and the stencil. For some odd reason I picked the TWO hotest days of the summer to do this! WOW!!

Heres sort of a before/after shot...

Buh bye raspberry faux treatment!!!





The wall color is a simple cream and the trim is windsor green (the dark green on the door)

Shes a gem! Please stop by and check out her site.

I LOVE the green--what was it? Windsor Green? BEAUTIFUL! Very cool on your booth. I should send you some of my stuff, so you can sell it for me! There is no where around here that I can set up a booth at! It stinks!
