Tired But Happy

Friday night and today, Saturday, I was one of several vendors at a home holiday boutique. Andrea hosted this sale at her home, and it was a smashing success!

Andrea is a gifted hostess, which really helps. People knew it would be worth showing up, just for the snacks, if nothing else. Her house lends itself very well to a boutique sale, and it was all quite comfortable.

Here you see the hand-painted glass that Andrea sells, and then Andrea herself, the hostess with the mostess.

I sold several items; my time was well compensated. I'm happy! I came home early, after I'd begun to run out of items, and the crowd was thinning out (and I was running out of steam). Boy, was I tired! I took an hour nap which felt fabulous... then I used some of my earnings to get Chinese food delivered. It was a nice way to end the evening and day which I found to be surprisingly exhausting!

Here are some of my things -- toys, tote bags, table runners, pot holders, and a wall hanging:

Hey, thanks to my pals who showed up.. some even from quite far away. That was so nice of you! (Thanks especially to Connie and Cousin Beth!)

What a neat idea to have a holiday bazaar in a home. I love your bag with the black and white.
