I'm feeling as though I can breath a bit easier now, everything is packed up, I'll be leaving to set up in about an hour or so...I've another show this evening...the same idea as the one in December but with a Valentines theme to it. It will be held in the Living Room at Cecils of course...great room, it actually feels as though it could be someones living room!
"update Feb 21st"...the show was great...I wasn't sure how this one would be received but it was better than I expected!! I've decided my next one will be just before Mother's Day...after that not sure as my Markets begin in May and this kind of show takes a great deal of time.
Tomorrow is the Heart & Stroke Foundations "Soups On"...this will be my third year attending this local event...it is always a great time. Each year they add something new, this year there will be a silent auction, mini health fair and of course my table. Local establishments donate, bread, fruit, and veggies, restaurants donate huge pots of soup for people to taste, really a great lunch for $8.00, all proceeds go to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of course.
I've been thinking all week what I want to do with the gorgeous stoneware heart pendant I received from Artbeads.com...I contemplated keeping it for myself...I love it but, I'm not a heart person and I know I would wear it a couple of times and then it would hang on my jewelry display!!! This is a gorgeous pendant and I want someone who would wear it regularly, to have it...
With that thought in mind, I decided to donate it to the silent auction at "Soups On"...for that reason I kept it simple in hopes it would appeal to a greater number of people at the auction...I wire wrapped the pendant with sterling silver and added a large onyx bead & hung it from a silver plated chain.
sterling silver heart chain for something else but I'm using the sterling silver heart toggle for the stoneware heart pendant.
"update, February 21st...
I ended up being side tracked and wasn't able to finish this post before I left for my trip, as well I forgot my camera at home and didn't have the photos until my daughter-in-law brought it to me when she arrived..."Soups On" was a huge success for the Heart & Stroke Foundation... great soups were enjoyed!!! My son-in-laws restaurant won the "best cream soup" for the third year in a row...way to go Cecils' Eatery & Beer Society!!!
