Last 2018 Market


Oh My Goodness, those donut holes just melted in my mouth! 

Last holiday market of the season.  
Time to finish some commissions for Christmas before I take a little time off for myself.  

Have a Creative Day, Y'All!

Mistletoe Market in Midtown Houston

The Mistletoe Market started Friday night. Just about the time everyone got their booths set up, it got very windy and cold.  I was thankful for all the handknit clothes my mom has knit for me through the years.  :-)





 
This cute young lady bought the vintage apron right off my mannequin!  So fun!



   
Breakfast Delivery!  

   
Gene loves to chat with everyone at the markets.  This artist remembered him from last year's market. They had a fine time sharing some conversation together.



The food trucks were excellent!  This is the best gumbo I've had and especially welcome on a chilly day. 

Have a Creative Day, Y'All!

Gene built new displays for me.  I designed them from repurposed doors & shutters I bought at ReStore, the Habitat for Humanity store.  This is their 1st market and I am so pleased with them!

I didn't believe the weather forecast so ended up layering everything I could find to stay warm.  This is what 2 sweaters and a jean jacket look like on me!  :-)  The weekend weather flip flopped between rain and wind.  Certainly not ideal but overall, I was able to make some valuable connections with people who will help me along my journey.  For that opportunity I am grateful. 

Have a Creative Day, Y'All!
