Elephant Grass

Hey look! Another blog post-told you I'd be back!!

Big Basket!

Today was my official launching of the holiday season with my annual trek to the Showcase of Arts and Crafts. I usually end up with a bunch of soup, dip and/or jams (I'm a sucker for all the samples). Today I showed remarkable restraint! My favorite purchases were the 2 elephant grass baskets! I'd been wanting baskets like these for quite awhile and was surprised to see them at the show! I bought a big one (for yarn and W.I.P.'s) and a small one (for this and that) at school.

Little Basket

I also bought the best pot scrubbers ever! They are crocheted with netting and can be found really cheap! I usually stock up every November.

Foodwise I bought some kettle corn and a jar of peach preserves!
The peach preserves taste great over cream cheese with crackers-Yum!!

Although there didn't seem to be quite as many vendors it was still so much fun and my favorite way to start Thanksgiving vacation!

Twinkle Lights

Tap Tap Tap..anyone still here?

I can't believe it's been a year since I last posted. Although I've hopped on the FB train, there are still some things that are more suitable for a blog and I missed blogging!

Lots to catch up on, but for today I will showcase my latest yarn purchase via Etsy:

I fell in love the moment I saw it! One of my favorite things this time of year are all the lights! I just need to decide what to make-fingerless mitts or socks? I'm going to knit a swatch and hopefully decide from there.

I've started a blog topic list so I know I've got some entries ready to go! Stay tuned!
