This is the name of a business. Ain't it grand? Yes! Let's all create good!
I kept thinking as we walked through the building at the fair grounds...
honey, we aren't in Kansas anymore... (Dorothy to scarecrow in wizard of oz)
But there are a lot of Kansas people here!!!
This woman was a joyful person, so happy to be living in the mountains of CO instead of KS, as she and her husband love to fish, or live to fish!
I mean look at her card!!
What fun talking to her. She had joy. She was open, and held out her spirit like a handshake or a hug.
She made jewelry and collected fun things like the turquiose skirt, for my enjoyment and purchase.
That's a good life. She moved south of here, into the mountains to live and fish and create.
You might have to break some eggs....
These were in a really cool booth. With a REALLY quirky woman. I loved her joy of life! When I picked out a few of her figure sticks, allegedly for gifts, (right) she even gave me a discount!
I think I know these women... and Thyme in the blue. That's me. And of course I wanted "thyme" I mean who doesn't need more time???
She's kind of looking at the bird in this pic. I love tea. Since I gave up diet drinks I am obsessed with tea.
And he felt spring like... Along with Bunny who seems to want to get on with it!
They are merely copied drawings on paint sticks! She thought I might put them in a garden. Oh no.... I am not all together sure anything could grow in this hardtack ground anyway. Nope these guys are purely for fun.
|these little birds are stamped on the stick bottoms! Life is in details!|
We were drawn to this business owner by her standard poodle. I didn't take a pic as the white female is a service dog, and the owner appreciated us not petting her. She said so many people didn't respect that and her dog was exhausted of all the attention. She was 10 years old and an epilepsy alert pup. The woman was from Georgia, and had many lovely things but this caught my eye...
" a beautiful woman inside and out" was the answer. I put it down, and we chatted more.
She said, don't worry about where you'll put it, or moving it again. Enjoy seeing it and you'll find the perfect place for it.
I didn't need it... I am in transition, but it is lovely. It reminds me of a time of my life. It connects me to other hands in the South carrying on traditions like I do.
It gives me pleasure, and you can't ask more than that.
This weekend we returned books to the library and noticed a book sale going on. We looked in and DH found some CD's for me... Ottmar Leibert (jazz classical guitar) and Antonio Carlos Jobim my fave. We got them despite having no idea where the player is. Hope springs eternal.
As you can tell, I'm not quilting at the moment. I am not emotionally in that place but I am knitting a little.
|super simple pattern, cast on 23, knit two, purl two to end. Turn do it again. And again....|
oy. change is not always good.
