It Was A Great Day

Many thanks and kudos go out to Maria and Pam on the wonderful event that unfolded
 this past Thursday at the McMenamins Edgefield in Troutdale, Oregon

All their hard work paid off for us lucky vendors who all got to be part of their collaboration 

It was a beautiful day at this wonderful location 
and the bustle of the crowds all day kept us hoppin' behind our booths 

I was so busy all day that I didn't get to take too many photos
Here are the few I was able to snap

My space with my daddy relaxing in my chair

I always am thinking of new ways to display my jewelry
an old vintage lampshade was the canvas for this creation

my trusty manny gal
purchased from this gal
love her and all her beauty

me modeling my new "fancy" hat
I bought from the Scandinavian fair in junction city last week

my sister doing a victory dance
as she was the winner in finding me some chandelier crystals for CHEAP

love these glasses she found

posing in my booth after a long day of peddling my wares

do we look tired?

thank you to all my customers who came by 
and found something special for themselves
my hope is that they will enjoy their pieces
and know that they were made with love

and a special thank you to my family
for being there to support me and my crazy endeavors
and for all their hard work helping me schlep my stuff
for the 2 hour drive to troutdale
i love you


  1. Oh yes, I love the glasses your sister found - too sexy! I love your stall and even tho it is hard work it looks like it was all worth it!

  2. Is that your daddy i see there? Cute display!

  3. Looks like a great show! LOVE the display piece with the lamp you showed! What a great idea. It's soooooooooo hard to have enough places to display the goods! Sandy & I took a marvelous class with Diana Frey this past weekend. PMC silver clay. Missed seeing Riki while there but, was just so thrilled to be up there. Glad you had a good show & had fun with you family helping you out! Have a great week.
