Last weekend we went to my brother-in-law's house in Manistee, Michigan. We pulled our camper up there and stayed in it since there were so much of the family there. The weather was not rained starting Friday night and all the way through til Monday...the day we had to leave. But when the weather is like that it keeps everyone inside visiting and playing games so it wasn't all bad :)

October 6 show

My friend, Jann, and I traveled to Findlay, Ohio to do a show at Early American Home Store. It was Barb's, the owner of the store, first year doing this event. Oh boy the weather was coooollllldddd and breezy that Saturday! We had a wonderful time and thank you to Barb for inviting us :) Here are some photos of our booth, other vendors and inside EAH store.

Below are photos of Jann's Vintage Romance handmade jewelry and felted totes/ornaments.

Some of my goodies below...

Meet Kay and Ruth. They are sisters with the business name of Crows on the Ridge, creative sewing and painting. They are very talented and fun ladies! Very original designs as you will see below.

This is one of the problems of not posting as soon as I return home....I forgot the names of the ladies that made the below goodies! Wonderfully primitive stitcheries.

The following photos are from inside Early American Home. B.e.a.utiful!

Hope you enjoyed the pictures! TTFN (I know all you tigger fans know what that means!)

new clay pieces.....

I have had these clay pieces sitting around the studio for at least three years...probably more. I decided to paint and finish them for the show Jann and I are doing this weekend in Findlay, Ohio at Early American Home. I wanted to offer something a little special and different...but now that I have these done, I am itching to make more!!!!

If you live anywhere near Findlay, Ohio, come and see us!! Barb invited 10 artisans to display and sell their handmade goodies at her shop! Hope to see you there :)

I finished this design while working the Davisburg show. I know exactly what I want to do to finish it, but not sure if I know how. My plan is to make this into a door pillow with a primitive ribbon for the hanger. I am also going to sew 5-7 rusty jingle bells across the bottom. I have several new designs now that I need to make into patterns.......coming soon :)

ahhh Davisburg....

LOVED this large barn! They had appraisals going all weekend.....I didn't think of it until Sunday but I have something I would love to have appraised. It is an antique paper mache mold of an amazing looking angel. I am curious what it is worth.... to me it is priceless because I love it so much! but still......just curious

There were four or more barns full of vendors plus the outside vendors. Thank you God for the beautiful weather. It was sunny and mid 60s Saturday and cloudy low 60s Sunday. Nice fall weather.
 This is the poultry barn where Jann and I had our booth. We were down on the right side. Here to the left is Wren in the Willow and Holly Hills Primitives. Love them both!
 Here is a picture of Holly Hills Primitives booth. Check out their blog...they own a store in Holly MI

 Here is Jann and I :) Havin' fun on Sunday. (thank you Dawn from Holly Hills Primitives for the photo)
 Jann makes amazing wool purses and totes. She knits them first (and they are taller than her when she is done knitting) then she wet felts them, needle felts images/words  on them, sews on leather handles by hand and tops them off with a clay button and a felted 3-D pull. She puts 30-40 hours into each bag. Truly amazing work!
 Our booth

 Close up of Jann's Got Wool tote......sold as we were packing up to leave!!!

 If you missed the Davisburg show, I feel for you. It was really a great show! We will certainly be back there next year!

That's it for now friends. By the way, Dawn from Holly Hills Primitives (HHP) has invited Jann and I to set up at her store during the Dickens Festival the weekend after Thanksgiving! So exctied! More info to come!

ALSO, Jann will be teaching needle felting and I will be teaching punchneedle at HHP in January! Sure to be a great time! Only 8 people per class so watch HHP blog to sign up :)

Blessings to you all for a wonderful week. This Friday, Jann and I will be in Findlay Ohio for a show! Tis the season.........
