Monday, Monday....

Mondays are not so bad, especially for bloggers like me (y'know: the M-F bloggers) b/c it makes our weekends look exciting!

Friday, I came home and these were waiting for me:

Isn't the giraffe just the BEST? I LOVE HIM! Actually, I love them all! Thanks to Lea over at KneeDeep, part of the Stitch Marker Mania.

Saturday, me, mom, PC's mom and a co-worker (S) went to NH for the annual League of NH Craftsman's Fair. This is my all-time favorite craft fair of all time. It has everything- woodworking, textiles, pottery, jewelry... Well, you have to see it to believe it! It's held every year at the Mount Sunapee Ski Area for one whole week. We did the fair in 6 hours. Here's the haul:
1. brown leather bag (last year it was $80, this year $39)

2. gorgeous silver bangle and kinda-matching silver earrings (from two different vendors!)

3. handmade buttons for me to use on felted bags- S picked up a pink one for me to put on her bag that I made for her... will do that tonight!

4. WOOD earrings. the pair on the left, my mom (your the best!) bought me last year and I wear them alot in the fall (they match everything!).... so I bought the pair on the right for me this year to wear with everything else! hee hee... less than $20, what a deal!

So, that's my haul. There was a great little demo booth with handspun yarn, but they couldn't sell me any b/c of the "rules" for the fair.

More knitting... I will keep you updated!
Happy Knitting Monday!


  1. Great haul! I love the buttons and the wood earrings!

    Is wood working and carpentry a lost art?
