Yellow House Arts Show and Craft Fair

A day late and a dollar short, at least I made it in time to photograph the vendors and make a few purchases.

I have vowed to get a pair of Mary’s home grown wool socks several years now and finally did it today. They are lovely and I can’t wait for it to get cold enough to wear them.

I also bought a beautiful coffee cup from Susan Minyard at Sweetwater Pottery. I always admire her work but own only one other piece – an udu given to me as a gift many years ago. Now I have this awesome coffee cup to remind me of the snake dream I had last night. It is theorized that dreaming of snakes means changes are coming, or of wisdom. The many hatchlings signify new ideas. So I am told.

My final purchase was from long time friend Pat Hight of Red Hot Pots; two small black bowls to add to my collection of Red Hot Pots.

    Very interesting…Seeing the spinning wheel reminded me of the spining wheel that was in the log home we bought in Ark in 1950. I recall trying to spin some wool….But I don’t recall what ever happened to it…..Love you…mom
