Home and Still Busy!!!!!!!!!

Daughter Steph, working in Sioux Falls SD just called to ask why I hadn't posted any pictures from our trip to see granddaughter Renee, and post other pictures of what I've been doing for craft shows, etc., etc.  Had to explain that I'm still so busy, as have another craft sale this weekend, and some orders for crocheted hats and pedestal plates that need to get completed and in mail.   She hadn't seen any of those pictures either, so I did tell her I had a picture of the set up of last craft show, and getting plates done (recycling old glassware).  So that is my post today.  She also hadn't seen the garage done, so a couple of pictures of that too, and the "pea" building that replaced an old sow pen.  Our trip was so great - traveled home in terrible snow storm, but made it safe and sound.  Have over 500 pictures to go through for next blog!

These pedestal plates can be used for lots of things; candy, to hold candles, cakes, cup cakes and wonderful for a buffet.

The red sign says "New Life for Refused Glassware"
For the base, I've used flower vases, candle holders, drinking glasses, bud vases, etc. A great way to deliver a plate of cookies to neighbors for the holidays.   Sure has been fun making them.  The hunt for the glassware is great fun!

Hats and headbands were good sellers too!

Sold a few tea cup pin cushions also.

We didn't have enough room to put all the hats up, so had to keep refilling up that space as they sold.  That was a fun day.  Leah and I hadn't done a craft show for quite a few years.  We'll see how this coming Saturday goes.   

Here is a picture of our completed garage - now no one knows if we're home or not, because the vehicles are inside!!!!!   Nice and warm!!!!

The building that houses the peas Steve planted to mix in with pig feed.  A good source of protein, and is replacing soy.  The protein is about half of what soy beans are.  The pigs are loving it, and it is working out great.  Didn't have to get different equipment to do peas.  Would have had to to grow soy beans.

Hope you all have a great day!

I really do like the hats. I hope that you have a great show.
I wish I had that new garage to put my car in. I hate having to scrap ice every morning now.
Can't wait to see more photos.
Have a great day.

Oh my gosh your craft show items are wonderful. I absolutely love glassware. Those pedestal plates are so pretty. I am glad to hear that you had a nice trip to see your little granddaughter. Too bad you had to come home to the cold and snow though.

The garage is great! I love that you put a wreath on it. Thanks for sharing your great craft fair. You have beautiful items. You are right that "recycled" dishes are great to use for food gifts for friends and neighbors.
