to market, to market!

some of the homemade bug spray I've mixed up for the market
Things are looking up.  My grandma and cousin are recovering.  Both are now able to walk and talk, and they are getting a little bit better each day, thank goodness.  Today, I am getting things ready for the grand opening of the farmers market in Orange!  It's this coming Saturday (May 5th) in the Faulconer's Hardware parking lot from nine in the morning til one in the afternoon.  I'll be there with all sorts of things made out of my fabrics, bottles of homemade all-natural bug spray, baby lettuce and just-clipped herbs, sachets of fresh local cedar shavings, and whatever else I can make between now and Saturday morning!  I'm having a good time getting ready.  It's much more fun to be hunched over the sewing machine than hunched in a hospital chair.

PS - Alyson, it's YOU!  I pulled your name out of the mixing bowl, you won the raffle!  What would you like as your prize?  Postcards, mini cards, or a lavender + rice pillow?  Just send me an email and let me know what you'd like.  Thank you to everyone who played along and left comments and joined the blog!


  1. hope it all goes well! I'm hopeing to stop by!

  2. Good luck, Maria! Can I place an order for your bug juice?!

  3. I'm really glad to hear everyone is doing better. I would order some bug repellent too.
