happy hour

Yesterday was a rough one for me, so I treated myself to a really good bottle of wine. Amazing what sitting down and having a glass of wine can do.

vegetable flower

This is how I get Alli to eat lunch. She looked at it and exclaimed, "Jenny, you're the best Jenny ever!" What excitement for a pile of vegetables dipped in humus.

farmer's market

I took the girls down to the Ferry Building this morning for some fruit tasting and boat watching. We'd had a rough start to the day (two tantrums by 9:00) so a little fresh air seemed in order. Alli has really come to love the market and knows to ask me what's in season. The pluots were a favorite today, and all the girls are excited to try the purple pepper for dinner.

renegade swag

I thought I'd share an amazing piece I picked up at Renegade Fair last weekend. I was lucky enough to trade for 2 of them with the incredibly talented Sita Rupe. She having a baby soon, who will be wrapped up in a ciuccio blanket. This one fits in nicely on the mantle.

etsy finds

It's been a loooooong time since I last posted an etsy finds list. Sorry about that. My blog has been having some identity issues lately that need to be worked out. But I spent a good chunk of time browsing etsy lately (like all of Friday night I couldn't pry myself off the couch) and I found some new and very desirable goods.

I never like pictures of myself, so when one comes along that I don't hate, I'm pretty much thrilled. My sister took this last week at her house.

back to the grind

I thought I would share a few shots from the fair this weekend. We changed our booth around on Sunday, these shots are from both versions.

I designed and ordered new business cards, and here's a peek at some of the awesomeness that will be available at Renegade (this weekend!)

Oh Canada

My favorite day on our trip was spent on a boat going up the Lawrence River. The Thousand Islands (yes, of salad dressing fame) are individually owned by the rich and famous, and most of them have a summer home built on them. The river freezes over completely in the winter, so they are only accessible for half the year. The clouds were magnificent that day.

so much sewing

I think I can finally see the end of sewing. I'd say I'm about 90% done with the actual making of items. Then there's the labels and pricing and booth design and ironing and de-fuzzing and list making and packing and such.

out of the country

Hi All,
Did I forget to mention I was going out of the country for the week? Sorry about that. I'm in Kingston, Ontario, Canada for another day, and will post about it soon.
