Ta Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

I found my camera!!  In the pocket of my bathrobe.  What on earth was it doing there?  Although these days, I have been known to wander out to the barn to throw some hay and grain at the alpacas in my jammies, and go back inside to loaf.  Now, late last night, I thought of a sweatshirt out in the studio with pockets I haven't checked, and maybe my cell phone is in there.  I'm not ready to go there yet, I'm letting the suspension build.

Here's a picture of one of the arrangements I made at the Craft show to mark the entrance to the food court.  One of the musicians has his CDs and cards in the way, but you get the gist.

Here is the other side.  I used two bicycles in the entry, with baskets full of plants, and there was another arrangement in the back.  I was happy with what I did.
The show was wonderful.  I had fun spinning and demonstrating my new mini spinner to everyone.  I may have picked up a couple of new spinning students.
Before the doors were even open on Thursday, I bought this sweet table from one of the Antique dealers.  Coincidentally, the two chairs were purchased from her about 12 years ago!!!

Then yesterday, I saw this beauty and had to have it.  I guess my new bedroom will be victorian.  This will go nicely with my grandmother's old quilt.  Deb Burton has the nicest things, and she won the prize for best booth.  You can visit her at her blog  She has a great picture of me there.

Here are the "Barn Cats" resting up after playing for hours with their new toys.

Catnip Carrots by Snooter-Doots.  You can find her on facebook.  She makes the cutest little felted characters, and crazy hats.  I bought one, but I need someone to take my picture.
So, I had a wonderful three days working at and shopping at the Lynden Craft and Antique Show.

I'm glad you found the camera! LOVE that lamp you bought. Now....those barn cats sure don't look like they are in the barn...looks like they are enjoying the house much better than the barn. LOL

I'm so glad you found your camera! One time one of our house phones was missing for months - I finally found it in the pocket of a jacket I only use when doing dirty work outdoors, and never thought to look there until one day I needed to use the jacket and there was the phone.

Oh I love the lamp - and the table is just perfect. What fun you had.

Oh wow...I so love that table and the lamp.

Your arrangements are just wonderful as well.

I really like your new table and lamp. The table has a very interesting shape on the edges and is that inlay - well it's very pretty. It makes me not feel so alone that you found your camera in your bathrobe. I find things in the strangest places some days.

Love your new table and the barn kitties look quite at home in doors!

Their catnip carrots are adorable - they look like the carrots I usde to make years ago - made one with a baby rattle inside, when my daughter was a tiny baby rabbit for Halloween!! I might have to make a couple more new carrots for Easter!!!

Ha . . . so glad you found your camera! I recently lost my credit card (canceled it). Found it at the Lynden Show inside MY camera case!!

You're right--those chairs are PERFECT with the *new* table. And, of course, that lamp is just DREAMY!!! Thanks for the shout-out, dear Linda! So good to see you're doing well.
