Friends old and new and Craft Shows

Today I was like a bird out of a cage. Dennis drove me to Radcliff (Pouting does work)to a craft show and Don picked me up. You know I am beginning to feel like a little old lady not being able to drive. I got to meet three of my Bluegrass Etsy Street Team. That is LaDonna on the left, Libby in the middle and of course me. Both are so nice and it was just fun to meet them. Libby shop is http://www.mayleesgarden.etsy.com/ she sells the nicest soaps and body butter. I bought two soaps one in Lavender and one with Basil and Peppermint. Gave the lavender to KT, and kept the other for me It is wonderful. I also bought a Body Butter (isn't that a great name?) in the scent of citrus. Leaves your skin feeling divine. Go check her out.

I also bought fudge, over a pound. It was from http://www.joshuasfriends.etsy.com, they are not on our team yet. The fudge helps families with handicapped children. It is very tasty, but I will have to find some friends to take some for sure.

Bev Rickey was also set up there, we are long time buddies so I sat with her at her booth. Her sister Barb was visiting from Iowa so we just had a grand time. I saw so many people I knew, I really do miss being social.

TOO cute aren't they. More creations from http://www.ginnymackscrafts.etsy.com/ they are very well priced and I would so love to see her sell some. some one out ther must have a little person who needs a Halloween bag?
