Off to show...

We'll be heading out in the morning for the Spring Crafts in the Afternoon at the Greensboro Farmer's Curb Market. We've been participating in this show for 5 or so years now. It's a sweet little show & we've made several friends there over the years. We haven't seen many of them since the Christmas show, so along with setting up to show we'll be catching up with dear friends! There are quite a few talented artists there & a large variety of items. I'll be beside my dear friend, Kim McEntee, who makes wonderful primitive dolls. And very close to us will be Zaytoon's booth, which is also a wonderful Mediterranean cafe in Greensboro. They always have the most wonderful goat cheese & spinach pitas (really a flaky crossiant), and stuffed grape leaves, olives, ohhh lots of yummies!!
If you're in the area, the Greensboro Farmer's Curb Market is on Yanceyville St. in Greensboro, across from the old ball stadium (not far from A&T as well).
I'll have a good variety of pottery, lots of spring primitives, & sprays, lotions, etc. They only allow us one table, but we're going to cram as much as we can on there!! :)

Hello in there!

This has to be one of my favorite pics! I was searching thru files on my computer this morning & came across this one, so I thought I would share. This is our sweet "daughter", Freckles. It was taken a few years ago when we first brought our female sheep home ~ we were in the stall with them & of course, she wanted to see what was going on!

New goodies in the shop!

Well, I'm back from Charlotte & have almost rested up! I worked a bit as time allowed at the show & have finished up two more punchneedle pieces ~ and just finished up a small hooked rug this morning!

Along with these new pieces I've finished up, I have lots of goodies to put out in the shop in the morning! I have some new sewn goodies ~ from sheep to rabbits to pillows & more! As well as a few new candle scents & a few new spray scents, some wonderful cupboard candles, and some wooden rabbits that David made! They turned out super-neat! He took a few with us to Charlotte & the response was wonderful so he has a few to put out in the shop, too!

As most of you know, David & I make 95% of the items in the shop, but I do bring in items to compliment the shop ~ braided rugs, amish barn stars, cookbooks, etc. And with our Spring Gathering coming up in just a few weeks, new goodies have already started arriving!!
