What a Show......

The Deluxe Indie Craft Bazaar was a great show.The crowd was huge and very fun.Amber went with me this year and I think she really had a good time.Above is a new display for rings that I was trying out.
I have been buying old suitcases to use in my display and I think I like them a lot, and you can put everything in them and they are easy to carry.
Here is Amber hanging pins on the big display that is two screen doors.She was such a big help and I would love for us to make art and do shows together all the time.

I did a little Christmas shopping but I can't show you that yet.

"Fall" is in the Air !

Fall is in the air here in the Ozarks. Days are getting cooler and nights have a nip in them.Time for pumpkins and crows.Speaking of that, look at the great gifts I got from Amy over at We took place in a Fall Swap and it was so much fun.
These wooden sighs are so cute.I am looking for just the right spot for them.
A hand painted towel with a crow on it will hang in my kitchen.
Love, love,love this wreath.I have just the door to hang it on.
Not sure yet where I will put this cute needle work but it will get a great home.
Sweet little pumpkin for the mantle.yes,yes,yes
Now which basket will I put these sweeties in.

Thank you so much Amy, I love everything.Now it back to work on my War Eagle Craft Show stuff.

Little Auna and her First 3 weeks...

I got spend the day with Auna Grace yesterday so I snapped a few pictures of her.
Had to get one of her and me together.It is hard to take a picture of your self.
Is this not the cutest thing you ever seen.Her Mommy had to use a tiny paint brush.

Big brother is very proud of his new sister.
He call his "baby girl".
I love my two grandbabies so much and I am so lucky to live so close to them.

Last Day of Camp and Things got a Little Wild....

Not only was the weekend the Eureka springs Rug Hooking Camp but it was "Yards & Yards& Yards of Yards Sales" in Eureka Springs.This little red shopping cart was one of the things Anita will be taking home with her.Here Jody and Anita are having fun with it.

If you had been here when Anita unloaded her SUV you would ask " How we she ever get it Home?" Well, all you need is 12 hookers in a room with all that beautiful wool and room is made.I will never tell how much new wool I am bringing home.
Here is a little something I made for lunch today.Now even a smell of it left.So sad!
Hookers at work.
Wool is not just for hooking.Anita got cool today and she wore this piece around all day.
A little demo on how to edge a rug.

I will post pictures of everyone's rug tomorrow.Tonight I am going to bed.
