Snowmen at Town Peddler Craft & Antique Mall

 Wishing for snow? 
 They are doing their snowman dance!!
 Up close this one has lots of character.
I really liked this one.  Jackie's prices are very reasonable for handmade, and you can zoom in and see Stella's beautiful crochet. Happy lookin' and shoppin'!

Porch cats and 57 degrees

 I don't know how this collection started, maybe with Walker, my indoor-outdoor cat, who chooses not to have his picture made today.
Rusty Cat was made by my neighbor Bob just for me. 
And this one was made by Janice, Prims by the Water.  Isn't he the cat's meow!
 The grass is green and so is the ground cover, even the pesky creeping charlie.  My creeping flocks have a bloom and below the sedum is already sprouting.  What a funny time of weather ---even the plants are all confused.
These look like little brussel sprouts.  I did a few bags of leaves but decided I would rather post.  Happy Tuesday!

Cindy's booth at Lindbergh

 Cindy does little slate signs and other unique little things to decorate your home.  She does this show all by herself since her Dad passed away.  She works really hard and has a huge display.
 If you zoom in you can see better.  She likes bicycles and once she painted a full size one for an outdoor show.
 She also usually has rosemary plants which go really well with the Christmas things.
 I like "It's a Wonderful World".
I would go crazy trying to put all this together. I must have the one that says "I think my guardian angel has a drinking problem."

Happy Saturday everyone.  A turn of weather, 70 yesterday, brrr. today.

Opening Day Deer Season Apron by Ashley

Yesterday when I was at Joann's this young lady told me about her opening-day apron so I went back this morning to take a picture for you all.

Today she told me about all the food she had prepared for her husband to take on his hunting trip, so I hope they don't spend all their time eating instead of hunting.

I have to envy all the energy she has and how kind and helpful she is to us when we have no idea what we are doing.  I will have to take my camera with me from now on so you all can see her aprons.

Iris Folding by Barbara

 These are her new ornaments for this year.
 Her display looks really nice.  Too bad she wasn't in the picture.
 She works really hard, bringing in all these frames is not an easy job.
 One of my favorites
 And this one too, she has a variety, something for everyone.  Nice gifts.
 Very elegant ones too with lots of bling.
I think this would be very tedious art so I give her lots of credit.  I can't imagine the patience it takes.
Tomorrow I have some pictures from Cindy's booth, she does slate signs and more.  Thanks for stopping by.

The craft show

 Everyone likes angels so we sold some of those, all the little stockings with the green tree on them, and the snowmen ornaments in the black hats.  I thought the ones in red hats were girls, but they called them men.
The white stars were my fastest seller. The trees I had last year so had a few left.
We sold lots of PJ's pins and badges.

 A favorite was the nurse (pattern by Chestnut Junction).. I put a bandage on her mouse and some of that curly hair that I made out of jute.
They liked my deer but would have preferred them to have four legs, much harder to make those.  Well that's it for this year's boutique.  The parents and the kids help us unload AND load up when the show is over; they have great food and the best raffles of any event in this area.  (there was even a kitchen aid mixer in one basket).   Next post I will show some of my friend Barb's iris folding which was new to the show this year.  Thanks for lookin'.

Craft show stuff

These are my ellie-phants for the craft show.  I made them from a Sweet Meadows Farm pattern out of some nice gray flannel and used some old hankies on some of them.
And this one is my lady angel of color and her baby.  I used some old crochet for trim and made the dress from a curtain valance.  She doesn't show up too well in the picture but her hair is so neat.  I will have to make a post and show you how I did it.  I was just packing up the last of my things and thought I would share them with you all.  I hope to get some pictures at the craft show of what's new and different, and if I have any hot sellers I will let you know for sure!!

Late bloomer

My neighbor has these beautiful flowers in his front yard.  I don't know the name of them but they have been blooming since mid-summer.  We have had two frosts now.

I will have a craft show this Saturday at Lindberg School in Dearborn (just the one) and looks like we will have colder weather which is good.  When it is warm like last Saturday a lot of people choose to rake leaves.  The leaves are a little late falling this year, still lots to come down so I don't think anyone will get left out.

Jeff and PJ have two additions to the family.  The new kids are sticking together.
