take a photo of dinner last night.
But I forgot.
Here it is at the end.
It’s hard to see exactly what we had, so I’ll help you out.
We went to our mussel friends house and ate mussels cooked in butter, white wine and thyme. To be honest the liquid is as good as the meat, M made homemade bread and to dip it in and soak up the liquid is to die for.
We only eat mussels with these people.
It’s a tradition.
To be honest with you eating mussels freaks me out a bit. I’m always relieved when I wake up in the morning and realize I have survived the night.
They also look creepy, like Audrey Jr. from the Little Shop of Horrors. Inside that shell is a miniature venus fly trap waiting to devour you from the inside out.
O.K. maybe only I can see the comparison.
But they are delicious.
Especially if you don’t look at them too much.
We finished it off with warm chocolate cake and cream.
Now I’ll have to see if I can haul my ever growing belly out of the house to buy something healthy for dinner.
I’m working on today.
Only it doesn’t quite look like her yet.
I had a bit of trouble getting back into my studio after the art fair. I typically go through a, what’s the point, period afterward, but, it’s over now.
I’m off out this morning, but, I’m looking forward to getting back home to work on this.
So I must have recovered. Right?
And here’s a pic of Spencer One Eye.
He only needs one eye to look adoringly at me.
Feel the love.
Or is that boredom. The old, oh for the love of god, not another photograph! look.
No. I think it’s love.
Listing new things on Etsy.
Man it’s long work.
I also put something new on Tictail but I’m not sure anyone really goes to look at that.
Now I feel like this.
I think I’ll go play with a cat.
Was the art fair.
The weather was perfect.
Which is unusual to say the least. It’s usually hot as hell, even though it’s near the end of October.
Here is my booth.
Every year, well twice a year really, after I pack up from doing this fair I swear I’m going to re vamp my booth for the next time.
Make it look more professional.
Something that looks like I know what I’m doing.
And looks as though I’m serious about doing it.
I did do something different with the earrings but the rest will just have to wait for next time now.
I’m not holding my breath.
Here’s my friend Nicki’s booth. She’s an old pottery friend of mine and it was the first time since we’ve both been doing this show that we were placed next to one another.
Of course, I had to buy some of her bowls …
All said and done I made $1,000 for charity even though it was really, really slow in the morning and I thought I’d never get beyond selling two pairs of earrings.
So, thank you everyone that came out to see me yesterday. And, thank you everyone who bought from me off etsy recently.
Getting rid of my stuff means I can make more :)
I’ve priced all of my jewelry so I’m good to go on Saturday to the art festival, if it doesn’t rain.
I’ve had my hair cut. (Haven’t actually taken a good look at it yet so I’m hoping it’s o.k.).
I’m about to have a cup of tea.
Then I’m off out to the studio.
It’s going to be a good day.
