Well, the day was a little windy and cold and we had to regularly hold down the tents and our stuff, but what a fun day it was at the Whispering Hills Garden Center Holiday Market yesterday! Thank you, thank you, to all who came out and made the day a beautiful one.
The sun was strong all day, the traffic was constant, people were fun, friendly, and interactive, local musicians graced us with their music, and I had great neighboring vendors. Crescent City Cajun‘s yummy food, Pop’s Premier Kettlecorn, and Kiera Confections kept everyone full of tasty treats.
Silly me left my camera card at home and thus had to make do with some simple phone pics, but here’s a shot of the baby-blanket corner of the booth and part of the wall-of-photos. As I mentioned in my last post, this was my first outdoor show and the whole tent thing was a bit intimidating. But the genuine offers of help from highly skilled friends and family set me free to just have fun. Thank you, everyone! Also fun: I wore the green sweater-coat I made for my own birthday a couple years back. It just makes me happy.
[Note the stuffed cat lying down on top of the basket. He kept falling over in the wind. One customer, after several unsuccessful attempts to get him upright, finally said, “I think it’s nap time” and just let him be :). ]

I was at the show on Saturday and was lucky enough to meet you! Your blankets, etc., were oh so soft and oh so beautiful!! Thank you for sharing your talents and I hope to purchase one of your blankets one day (at a minimum – a set of your coasters!)! Hope to see you at some of the other local craft venues!
Same here, Fran! Thanks for coming in — it was a pleasure to meet you!
Wow Joanie, this looks great! I’m so happy for you. You are truly gifted!!
Oh, Kelly Ann, the day was accomplished with lots and lots of help. I thought of you with your early-morning photo shoot. The wide open spaces were definitely a lot windier!
Looks like you had a great day Joannie.
It was fun ;). By the way, aunt Mary, I’m looking forward to seeing you soon!
