Market season is officially over! Woo Hoo! It was over for Walter about a month ago as you can see. He maybe had patience for about 5 minutes into the Bloomington Handmade Market which was my first of three. You can see the evidence above.
This past weekend was Christmas in New Harmony which is this adorable town about an hour south of where I live. I just discovered it a few months ago. It is a magical, special place. It's like some sort of oasis in the mid-west. I participated in the Artisan market which was held in their Granary. I changed up my display after fierce display envy at previous markets. I wanted to have a subtle, soft forest environment for my Pink Cheeks. I like it a lot, but I am planning on re-doing it and making the trees taller because they get hidden behind my cuddly pink-cheeked friends. The market was wonderful. All the other vendors were delightful and I spent the entire time laughing and eating cake balls which were being sold one level down from me.
The ceiling of the Granary was beautiful:
Also one level down was Santa and Mrs. Claus. In between groups of kids I caught Santa taking a snooze. I don't blame him, it's a busy time of year.
I have several orphaned Pink Cheeks up in my Etsy shop. From now until Christmas you can get 10% off by entering the coupon code: hollyjolly. Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanza and Happy
