Hi, everyone and a happy Memorial Day to you all!
I’m scrambling – truly – to get ready to depart on Wednesday for the Country Living Fair in Rhinebeck, NY. I hope you will think about coming if you are in the beautiful Hudson Valley area next weekend. You can find out all about it here. The Fair is an amazing experience with artisans from all over the US as well as lots of antique and vintage shopping plus talks and demonstrations by lots of people, including Brent and Josh, the Beekman 1802 Boys, you’ve heard me talk about so often. They will be there on Saturday and will have a pop-up version of the Beekman 1802 Mercantile set up for the duration of the show.
I have been assigned an amazing booth space in Barn 29, right on Main Street. It’s an end spot directly across Main St. from the Earth Angels. Here is a Map of the Fairgrounds for you:
And here is the schedule:
See? You’ve gotta come!
I quickly wanted to share with you the “real” pictures of those 5 wreaths I recently finished. I will be taking a total of NINE wreaths with me to the Fair, as well as the Golden Halo Centerpiece, and about 4 DOZEN (Four Dozen!! See – I told you I’ve been busy!!) “Tiny Topiaries.” I love them all – haven’t photographed them yet (hopefully tomorrow before I pack them) but they are totally charming. Plus, I will have my full stock of Glittermoon Cards and original photography. Oh, and some really fun vintage merchandise to boot. I’m so excited!
Without further ado, here are the 5 new ones:
Finally, in honor of Memorial Day, I’d like to share a picture of my Dad who served in the US Navy during World War II. As a Lieutenant on a Destroyer Escort, he sailed in both the Atlantic and Pacific campaigns. Thank you, Daddy, and thank you to all the brave souls who fight for our freedoms.
