Tidbits

Friday evening, I went to an antique show with my Sis-in-Law. It was a fun show... small, but with so much to see, it took us a couple of hours of browsing before we made it to the last booth. We came home with a few treasures each, and managed to make it onto a local news show.
                                     
Jen can be spotted at 1:03, leaning over a table looking through a tray of typewriter keys; she's the one with long hair and a grey sweater.

Then, at 1:39, I leave my spot a little further down the table, to walk over and show her something. About halfway there, I realize that the news camera is pointing in my direction, and get a sheepish grin on my face.

At 2:19, my feet, legs, and the bottom of my bag are featured as backdrop to a Little Toidy, then pan up... there's the back of my head.

A moment of fame for the farmgirl!

Speaking of moments of fame... check out the new listings in my friend Nora's etsy shop. A Mama/Daughter/Dolly modeling adventure for the Twist girls! Nora does beautiful work... immaculate sewing technique and perfect seams... way better than I could ever do on my machine, let me tell you. She has just ventured out into the world of selling online, with a selection of aprons, pillowcases, and project bags. If you are in the market for any of the above, I highly recommend her work! She is in the process of making a custom apron for me, based on a favorite apron in my pantry, but with some sampler-themed fabrics. I can hardly wait to show it to you!

And finally... I give you a moment of cozy-ness... just me, wool socks, slippers, coffee, and a toasty fire in my new woodstove.
If only I didn't have a mile-long to-do list today. I'd sit right there all. day. long.
