Enjoying the Goode


It's been a bit of a busy Fall around here! It is show season and we have been off to a wonderful start. Josie hopped on board this last show; bound and determined to meet Ben Ashby, Editor of Folk Magazine. I met Ben a couple years ago as Folk was just starting out. We were both in Ohio for the Simple Goods Show.


Earlier that Sunday, Josie hopped on my shoulder and we visited Main Street. Ben has an awesome place! Just down from the Beekman boys (the grey building). *It's difficult having your very own photo bomber.....


Then there is just plain old silliness in the show tent...we tend to be a little over tired and giddy.


The most unusual art was that of Diamond Tooth Taxidermy. Beth Beverly has quite a take on the Taxidermy of today ~ her pieces are unique and give a wink and nod to yesterday. While taxidermy is not for everyone, her work is unique and artsy. Of course, no animal was killed for the express making of her work.


I loved this piece, although you can't see all of the jewel work.  I love the show "Oddities" and these pieces look like something that would would have found their way to that unique shop.


Prior to the show, I was contacted to make a piece for the Vermont Chapter, "Run For The Cure". This is the second year for me and I am thankful for the opportunity to give back.


Tim and I did take a day and met up with our friend Mark, for Irish 2000~ a day full of Irish pride, music...and lets not forget beer and food! Tim and I crossed this one off of our Bucket List....


Haggis.....It was surprisingly good.

Now comes the task of Holiday shows, a class and setting my sails for the path of next year. I am thankful for all of this and the opportunities that have come my way.

I am one that loves taxidermy (but you probably would have guessed that) as long as the animal was not a 'prize' and gave it's life for ornamentation.
love reading your blog, my friend ~ and the music sweeps me away every time......
Blessed be,
L

Nothing better than enjoying the Fall weather with critters, friends and family!

Oh my gosh, I have been looking for you since I met you at Sharon Springs this fall!! My sister lives there and we came from CT to visit her and go to the fair. I wanted to buy the Crow pattern to make for my sister in law and I didn't buy it and I've been kicking myself ever since! I found your Etsy and will get it now!!
