I am fortunate enough to have a day off after a long weekend at the wonderful halifax crafters market. It was a pretty fantastic weekend. Getting out to see all of the marvelous creations by my fellow crafters makes it worth it every time. Today I'm just unpacking, organizing and let's be honest, catching up on a world of housework I neglected leading up to the market!

Not the best pic, but here is a little shot of my mountain of pillows and other goodies available at the market.

I stayed overnight in Halifax Saturday and had a chance to spend some quality time with a few friends I don't see often enough these days. Though my birthday was in March they surprised me with a mini birthday celebration. Lots of sugar, a vegan birthday cupcake from Susie Shortbreads and jelly belly beans which hastened my post-market crash. I was asleep on the couch by 10pm.

I also left with this beauty of a gift! It is a waving Queen, powered by a solar panel in her purse! I think she looks pretty spectacular next to my african violet granny plant. This is also the best use of a doily I've found.
