We just finished our last bear show of the year. The best part of any show is seeing old friends and fellow vendors. I come away feeling truely blessed. The worst part of doing a show is the unpacking and putting things away and cleaning up the mess I always make in the shop when I pack for a show. That, however, is a project for Monday. Blessed be to all

Rainy Days

As much as I would rather have customers, I will admit I enjoyed today's rain. A few brave souls were out and about and almost giddy in their joy of a rainy stormy day. I spent my day getting things ready for this weekend's doll and bear show at the Puyallup fairgrounds. I organized yards and yards of lace and worked on the Christmas plans. But the most fun of all was having grandbaby number 5 for the afternoon. Noah belongs to child number 2, Matthew, and Mom and Dad had school conferences with the older ones, so grammie got Noah. He is 23 months and so fun. We spent alot of time reading Goodnight Moon. It has always been his favorite, and was his daddy's too. Then he helped me around the shop. He loves to draw and color. An artist in training.

We made a very quick run to Sandpoint yesterday. I wanted to shop. It was so wow.....but, as I was constantly reminded, we were there to drop off a pink bear for the Funky Junk pink tree and if I could do that and shop in my time frame have at it. There was so much to see so.... at least the bear was dropped of at the Retreat space. I came away excited about all the fun things that I saw. Normally Sandpoint means a day trip to Seattle. We do all the stuff we enjoy with no schedule, with of course lunch at Dicks's. This time we had two different birthday parties to attend. They were great fun also so it was a great day.

It seems fall is really here. It is such a busy month. The need to nest and get the last minute get ready for winter things done is strong. The shop is done in fall colors and ready to warm your heart. The chocolate candles are burning. Stop by and say hello, we are madly getting ready for the October 17 and 18 bear show at the Puyallup fairgrounds. The fur is flying so to speak. Enjoy this week of sunshine.
