At the beginning of our journey, we found a wonderful self-taught artist from the mountains of North Carolina. Cher Shaffer doesn't have a website, as yet, but her work is wonderful and I have asked her to come teach for us next year. Oh my, oh my, she is a talent.
We met two button women with lovely trims and laces. They loved what they did and there stories of a button childhood showed the love and pride they took in their wares.
A booth of both vintage and new glass lampshades pulled us in to ooh and ah at all the color. While inside we happened upon a couple of books that Pam treasured and had to have. They are early mechanical books from Germany. A real must have.

What bird wouldn't want to call this home?

I have to say, I was quite good and quite smart today. I took my licence and cash. I left my credit card and check book home.
I have to say, I was quite dumb today. I ONLY took cash with me and couldn't buy what I wanted to at the end. The up shot of this, Pam got to buy it and is going to share a bit.
Lovely laces, an old camera, jewels, pictures and an old rusty clock face are my little treasures.
Come September, I will start where I left, for there is a woman, with wonderful stuff and reasonable prices. Yes, she will be in the same spot and yes, she will have more of the same.
Z2, J Man and Little Red are all in the pool chilling from a long hot summer day. Z2 has been in the studio since they got home from Rec creating an envelope and letter to put in the tent mailbox tonight. J Man locked him in with the hook and eye at the top of the door while Red kept asking "what're you doing?", over and over.
Life is back to normal.
