Squidfire's Art Mart wrap up.

Squidfire's Art Mart wrap up.

HOLY WINDY BATMAN!!! I’m still sore from holding my tent down all day. I felt like i was positioned like a human version of monkey from the barrel holding onto the tent with one hand bagging, making change and assisting customers with the other. The highlights of my day were when nice customers would come in and make their partner or friend hold onto the tent so I could rest my arms. The people I encountered while holding on for dear life were great! I wish it hadn’t been so windy but at least it wasn’t cold as well.

I was looking forward to this show for quite some time to do some shopping of my own and had arranged some trades before hand and I’m so glad I did because with the wind there wasn’t really an opportunity to shop. There were so many vendors I wanted to check out with mother’s day being the next day and my birthday in only nine more days and I promise I’ve been a very good girl this year and am very deserving of little treasures.

Ever since I had gotten my book from Moonlight Bindery back as a holiday gift to myself I’ve wanted a second one. Well I couldn’t decide between my two choices so I got them both aren’t they beautiful!

handbound books for every occasion

Next up I wanted a wallet to go with the new purses I got off etsy a couple months ago. There I was one day killing time on twitter and along comes an etsy listing from See Katie Sew well I wanted one so a convo was made. I also treated myself to a little head band which I love! But the wallet was AWESOME for use at the Farmer’s market on sunday because I can use the key ring to hook it to the spot in my purse intended to hold keys so no worries about dropping it because its attached!

Last but not least I splurged on yet another little pouch (ask how my husband rolled his eyes at me when he saw) from fellow BEST member JennyJen42. I have no idea yet what purpose it will have but it is so cute I just needed it!

Ok there was one other purchase made but it wasn’t for me it was for a little girl’s upcoming 11th birthday however her pink loving little brother found it today as I was unpacking from the show and claimed it for himself. Meet Rory and Grace his newest friend from the celebrity in my children’s eyes Cutesy but not Cutesy

Enjoy!

How I spent Mother’s Day

How I spent Mother’s Day

Woke up EXTREMELY sore from the windfest and tent holding the pervious say at Squidfire’s Art Mart, but still I wanted to go to the JFX Farmer’s Market. So even though it was only 8am I had a cup of coffee (ok I had 2) and started sending kids off to get dressed. It was cold yet bustling all those plants wanting to come home with me. Instead we got some greens, asparagus and strawberries because they were so yummy and ripe smelling.

Afterwards we headed to Lowes to finish getting rocks and dirt for the raised beds Steve and the kids had built me a few weeks earlier.

So a shopping cart and contractor’s cart later home we head. After a few hours of work where I over worked already sore muscles and this is what I ended up with. Potato bins to the left, the raised bed, and sweet potato and garlic to the right with some marigolds tossed in to hopefully protect everything.

Then on the patio table we never seem to use I have some herbs and my tea cup planter full of Red Clover and Dandelions.

My favorite part of the day was sitting with the kids and planting their seeds in their Sesame Street planters.

Jack planted Bert & Ernie Peppers, Lexi planted Oscar the Grouch Green Beans, Finn some Elmo Tomatoes and Rory the pink Abby Cadabby Pumpkins.

Steve even put some wire on the bottom of the compost bin and got that set up for me too. I’m so excited about our little garden in the city this year!

We even had our first harvest of greens for a salad to add to dinner.
