The craft show...
This old card table belonged to my MIL Fannie Hudson. If it could talk it would know all the gossip there was to know in Mountain View, Missouri in the 1930s, 40s, 50s, and 60s. with countless games of solitaire, cups of coffee and her cigarettes. If you came to see her, she would go on playing, saying "come on in but keep those babies quiet, my soaps are on".
Since the table came to my house after Fannie died, it has had a different life. It gets to be squeezed in when there is an extra two feet of space to be used in the craft show booth. And...gets to wear red and hold all manner of interesting creations. This year it was in charge of candy-canes which went really well and the snowmen too, except they really got bested by the elves.
It was good to see people that are regular and faithful customers and I only see once a year. A few were missing and I hope everything is well and just couldn't make it this year. I had wonderful help...Rebecca, Granddaughter, and PJ, daughter, and we sold PJ's pin and badge flowers too! PJ is a reluctant crafter but she is coming around. I am working on being her craft coach as well as her life coach.
After all, the table still has a lot of years left in it, it should never be put out to pasture. Happy Sunday everyone!
