speaking of erin godbey and the indie craft parade, it’s this weekend!! will you be there?

the indie craft parade will bring the best handmade artists from the southeast together under one roof. it’s a public market where you’ll find indie crafts, local food, and opportunities to meet and greet with your favorite artists!  held in greenville, sc with free admission, we hope to see you there!

i’ll be there with a booth full of going home to roost goodies!  as you can see, i’ve been a busy lady:

pillows galore, some new designs and some old favorites.

dear colorado springs,

we so enjoyed our visit.  thank you for having such beautiful weather!  our mornings were crisp and our afternoons were perfectly sunny.  our evenings were met with a gentle breeze just perfect for a light sweater. we walked and walked and though our feet got tired your scenery rejuvenated us.  our meals were delicious and the local shops made our visit so fun.  thank you for having no bugs (north carolina, are you listening?), i so appreciated not receiving a single mosquito bite during our visit!  your mountains are glorious and your skies are vast.  though this visit was short, we hope to be back soon. bye bye!

memories

hi lovelies. :)  my plans for ghtr have flown the coop this morning, as i’m not feeling very well.  i was down most all of yesterday with what seems to have been my first ever migraine (oh boy!).  as i’m sure some of you know, it was excruciating- and i’m still not feeling up to par.   i’m going to take the day to rest and recover, but will be back tomorrow with some great stuff for you- so make sure to check back in! i hope you have a beautiful day and i will talk to you soon!

xox, bonnie
