I took a trip today to Providence Open Market and what a wonderful visit it was!  So many different vendors, so many wonderful handmade items, so many wonderful artists!  I handed out quite a few of *my* business much easier than writing down all my information to be put on email lists.  (It also shows them I'm an artist, too!)


This is an absolutely gorgeous necklace by The Pebble Collection  This one uses garnet and sterling silver and I have to admit, is one of my FAVORITE items!  I checked out a few...okay, several dozen...other items she had and I kept coming back to this design.  This is definitely on my list for a birthday present!   


This adorable little doll is called Mealy Bug by may lo originals.  She is a Lil Tooth fairy Helper.  She has a cute little pocket on the front with this sweet little saying: 

In this pocket I will lay,
the little tooth I lost today.
Please, dear fairy,
tonight as I sleep
leave me a coin.
My tooth you can keep.

This is one item that is DEFINITELY on my list for the Cutie Miss C, Lil Cutie Miss C and Little Guy A!  Well, once they start losing teeth, that is! 


The best, most yummiest, tastiest bread was found today, as well!  If you get a chance, check out When Pigs Fly Bakery!  I picked up a loaf of Apple Cinnamon.  Let's just say...I'm picking up 2 loaves...well, maybe 3 loaves next week!  YUM!!

Anyone want to join me next Saturday?

It was a wonderful weekend!! After a little bit of rain on Friday morning, the sun came out and stayed out all weekend long!

Mr. H got called into work on Saturday so I thought I'd take some time and sit outside and enjoy the sun. It didn't work that way, tho! I did, however, open all the windows and clean the house. I know, I know....clean the house on a beautiful day!? It's motivation for me! Fresh air blowing through, radio turned up (playing me some classic rock!) and dancing around the house as I dust and vacuum. You gotta have fun, right??

A few creative ideas came about, too! There are a few young ladies graduating from high school and I thought I'd make some notecards for these young ladies to use as thank you notes or even "Mom, I need money!" notes. Once I decide on the design, I'll post a picture.

Sunday took Mr. H, Miss C and I to Fairhaven, MA to visit a friend of Miss C. A nice lunch out, a trip to Phoenix Beach to watch the sail boats, an Outlet store shop-stop and finally the first visit of the season at Somerset Creamery. They have some of the best ice cream around!! Miss C was happy to be out of the house and glad to see her friend and we were happy to spend some time with Miss C.

It was a wonderful weekend!

A new blog. 

What am I going to write about?  Who will read?  Why would anyone want to read? 

Those questions and more answered...I'm not sure when but soon.  I promise, soon. 

I've been nudged by several people to start a blog as a great creative outlet and possibly a good way to get people to my lovely little Etsy shop ( insert shameless plug here! )  So we'll try it.  I can't say that it's going to be all design/creativity all the time...I can say it will be truly me. 

Feel free to leave a comment.  AND any help on creating this here blog would be greatly appreciated!
