Viva THe GReeN ScenE!

What a wonderful way to spend a weekend. Although it started out a bit frantic, since we had just returned from a few days in the awe-inspiring Sequoias, (which really deserves a post in itself!) and traffic was that typical Friday night California kind we all love… once I actually got there with my stuff, the Fullerton Green Scene was lovely!

The folks that come out for this show are so down to earth, so friendly so fun! I met tons of really cool new customers I hope to see again and of course was inspired by the limitless possibilities of what I could do in my own yard and ODLS. Thank goodness I worked the show alone, so I didn’t get too much time to shop. I did of course frequent my neighbors across the way and discovered some great new herbs, and two gorgeous sweet pea vines for up along the second tier fence(I’m always trying to hide that lovely chain link).While it was a toasty 97+ degrees the people still came, bought some Hawaiian shaved ice and trucked along.

I had a number of Milagra Gourd dolls and came home with only one who I brought back to The Little Dress Shop yesterday along with my other creations. She must be lonely there now, so I’m encouraged to make more for the store and for my next show in Old Town Tustin. I was also excited to be commissioned to create two new Milagras for a couple of cool gals out of town.

So the next show I’m doing is in Tustin on May 16th and it’s called Glitterfest. I’m really excited and honored to be part of this show and one among a large group of very talented artists. I start to freak out and think “what I am doing in this show with all these real artists?” and then I say “hey I was on TV, I did 12 ½ minutes with Carol Duvall ! I’ve been published, I’m ok…right?” The show is sponsored by a very cool store in Old Towne Tustin called Whimzy!. Check it out if you a get a chance. Here’s a few pics of some more new things.

Just wanted to say that I love the Mary medals you included in your last post. I carry mine with me and usually break off the loop to afix them to a necklace. I never seem to be able to throw them away, but this is such a great idea. Thank you!
