Busy Weekend

Started out Saturday morning going to the Public Market to have our weekly tacos only to be told that the mexican restaurant is closing; next week is their last week. I am devastated. I love this small family business that makes the freshest, tastiest most wonderful tacos in the entire world. They moved locations once before - so I am hope the Market will embrace this amazing vendor and find them a new space.

Saturday afternoon, Donna and Michael flew into Canandaigua airport on/in their new Cessna to have lunch at the Rio Tomatlan for a late Mexican lunch. Yes, Allen's sister's husband has his own airplane and he also has spontaneity. They left Selinsgrove, PA at noon, had lunch in Canandaigua, and and arrived home by 7:00.

I am still learning my new i-phone and I took many videos before I was told by Aster that I was taking videos not photos...

Today is a full day too... I feel overwhelmed by the amount of work that is not getting accomplished. But I know I will enjoy the fun day ahead.

Bee's Nest

I went to photograph some Etsy items on the deck and found a great swarm of bees living under one of the benches. We are going to wait until it is dark when they are all at home and then kill them, but I photograph a few things with them swarming around me. I usually am happy to live and let live, but this is where we eat... sorry beautiful bees.

Here are some of the etsy itmes coming up for sale in my shop.

392 Scrabble tiles (Aster counted them for me - isn't she the best?!)
A very old Brownie camera - marked 2A with patent pending. And the little baby felt bonnet below might have been my mother's I have to ask her...
A German victorian embroidered purse with silver handle.

Four new Owls

I also completed this little pillow - I am trying to make more of these. I really like having a larger blank canvas to design
