Yesterday I went to a craft fair at my daughter’s old high school. It cost $1 to get in and the money went to support the band. As an ex-high school band member, this was a laudable cause. Here are some of the treasures I found.
A cat bed made from an old barbeque lid. The feet are old door knobs. Miko has assumed ownership.
When Miko left for a short bio break, Sunni took over. I think she was just keeping it warm for Miko.
Then I found this unusual bracelet made with spoons (or maybe forks). Very cute; ignore my banged up hand.
I spotted a little table topper made of braided fabric. I wanted something to put on top of the little cabinet I had refinished.
And how about this little fabric bowl!
This beautiful seam ripper caught my eye.
And because winter is here and one can never have too many mittens, I found these mittens made from recycled sweaters. They are soft and thick, and extend past the wrist. My hands are already thanking me.
My hands get quite dry and chapped in the winter. And if you travel, you have to put any hand lotion in the plastic bag. Here’s a solution: use a solid hand lotion! Bonus: it smells good!
How about some flavored balsamic vinegrette ? The Meyer lemon mango was exquisite, and since I love blood orange, I had to get the strawberry blood orange. I am salivating as I write this.
A local independent bakery was at the craft fair. Since I am making potato soup today, a little multigrain bread is required.
And how cute is this?
I have many more treasures, but they are gifts, so I don’t want to spoil the surprise. I must brag that, with one exception, my xmas shopping is now complete. Don’t hate me, applaud my efforts. This could be the one thing I don’t procrastinate getting done.
