An aqua/turqoise sort of day!

I took a break from the bears on Sunday to go to the Coburg Antique Faire with my always wonderful husband, Bill, and my fabulously darling girly girl, Brittany. Brittany hasn't gone on any of our escapades this year because she and her husband, Jeremy, are newly married and have just bought a house. You know how that goes. We don't rank as high on the list as we used to, so, for her to join us was truly the cat's meow!!

On several levels the show was....Oh my, my!! First, it was a scorcher of a day. When we left at 1:15pm it was hovering around 90 degrees!!

Secondly, there were throngs of people. So many, in fact, that in many booths you simply couldn't move. That many people tend to make me just a wee bit uncomfortable. Couple the people with the heat and I tend not to linger in booths as much as I would normally. So, I actually didn't bring much home with me this trip. That's okay though!! That simply means I'll find lots of treasures at the Fall Celebration at Monticello Antique Marketplace this Friday!!! Oh, and then there's the Willow Nest Harvest Sale on the 22nd!! Both are NOT TO BE MISSED!!!

Okay, time to get into the studio now. My supplies finally came late Saturday afternoon and now I've got to really get busy and finish up some bears. First one to finish? My Truly Silly Celebration bear, of course!!! I simply must post a picture of her. Second in line? A bear that will be auctioned off for Alex's Lemonade Stand.....a charity organization for childhood cancer. More on that later this week!!

Now I've really got to skidaddle........Warmest bear hugs, Aleta

Aleta,
I just wanted to drop you a note to say that I enjoyed meeting you again in Coburg. Your blog is just adorable. Of course I love all the pictures of my good friend Joy's stuff. If you have time, drop by my blog to say hello.
