An Evening in December

Every first Thursday in December our church hosts "An Evening in December".  Each table is decorated by individual hostesses.  It is so much fun to see how each hostess designs the table for the evening.  This year at my table I used my favorite china "Blue Danube".  I have been collecting since I was 16 years old and have never stopped loving it.

Trees Trees Trees and More Trees

Thank you to all who have encouraged me with your delight in my sweater trees.  Just been gathering wool sweaters, buttons and chair spindles for the last year not really sure just how I was going to use them but knew these goods were worthy of something great.  I finally had a revalation in October and went to town creating. After their debut at 2nd Saturdayz I have had orders for more trees......... I have been busy. Thank goodness my mom is still with me as my assistant.

My First Show 2nd Saturdayz in Seattle

I had such a great time at this show.  I could not have done any of it without the support of my family and my mom's labor of love.  It was a pleasure to meet the "Junk Tribe" of 2nd Saturdayz  I appreciate all the hard work and dedication of Linda Morrison and Deb Bock the  promoters of this show.  They were both so kind helpful and encouraging to me as a first timer to a show.  Thank you to the vendors as well with their encouragement and compliments.  Customers, I want to thank you for attending this show and hope to see you again at future 2nd Saturayz.  It was great, I am exhausted yet ready to get going on new things for the next show. 2nd Saturdayz
