Jelly Beans are to Spring, what candy corn is to Autumn. Excitement and a sense of newness. We picked up a bag and added them to this little vintage candy dish. They're quickly being devoured during primetime tv watching and afternoon quickie snacks. Although it is a dissapointment when you think you're eating a cool coconut and it turns out to be buttered popcorn- bleck~
We applied for The Providence Open Market today- we had a lot of fun last year- so we're up for another year- here is hoping!
I left my camera at my parent's house-so I won't be able to list or upload anything exciting for a few days. Last night on a whim I baked some banana bread . In the past I have always had trouble with our oven and the bread not cooking well enough. This recipe calls for 1 hour in the oven and that worked just fine. The top was a bit crispy- but the inside was perfect!!
Tonight I have yoga.Yesterday's test went very well- I didn't need a mammogram- but a sonogram.. and there was a doctor on hand to read my stats. Everything is fine, normal and perfect! I breathed a huge sigh of relief in her office - fighting back slight tears. Zach then drove me to the health food store to get some ice cream!
I've been thinking about streamlining the items I make- focusing on a few things rather than being so broad. But I'm torn- because I see clothes that are adorable and might just need a little something like an applique or a button and I want those pieces to stay in my shop. So I don't know what way to go. I'd love to become one of the shops critiqued by the Etsy crew- but I know there are a million sellers all hoping for the same thing- so I need to try and be objective- myself.
After reading The Vintage Zoo's Blog and Some Girls Wander I too feel a doily sensation coming on- or possibly a vintage hankerchief soiree.
Last night we watched 30 Days of Night w/ Josh Hotnet.. um I mean Hartnet- it was verrry scary and an all around neato horror flick.
Well have a happy Tuesday night-
