Welcome Summer

Today feels like the first REAL day of summer! Yesterday I cleaned house, and today has been one of those perfect weather days and a day of visiting with good friends! My dear friend, Suzanne, came visiting clear from Phoenix, AZ. Later, one of the dearest young ladies I know, Shalane, stopped in for an unexpected visit. Just a few minutes ago Zanette called and said she'd drop by this evening.  What a lovely day!

I kicked off the summer by participating in the Bijou Market last weekend , a handmade craft fair in Provo, UT.  I was flattered to be accepted as a vendor in this show and had more fun than words can tell! -- The creative portion of getting ready was great fun.  I made zipper flowers, unique handbags, and folded book sculpture. I also sold vintage earrings, and I must say they were a hit!  I would probably do this again, but I think I might love the vintage jewelry business!  The fair itself was held in a beautiful fruit orchard with the vendors stretched out among the trees. The weather was just right for shopping!

One of the founders of Bijou, Emily, is a lovely woman that I've known since she was 3 years old!  She is now a mama and her sweet baby, Hayes, was safely entrusted to us while his busy mom was supervising the fair. What a glorious day we enjoyed.
