thursday brings…

Popsicles… actually, these were Wednesday Popsicles. check for the molds at target- they’re meant to be stirred into a drink, but i thought they’d be great for my kids, who tend to eat Popsicles like corn on the cob. they make a skinny pop that’s easy peasy to get your mouth around. they’re small enough to use up the end of the juice (or coconut milk, like these). just freeze- they pop out easily, go down smooth and cold on a chokingly humid day.

i recently had another chokingly humid experience, at this year’s Artscape festival. it was less than comfortable, but the company was excellent in the mafia tent, and now i can forgo my monthly spa steam bath, so that’s a plus.

ahem.

 wanna see my table setup? you do???

this is the only photo i took the whole weekend… on the left, you can see some of my tree mirrors, some hanging embroideries, then closer to the middle is a little display of earrings (speaking of which, i need a jewelery rack, does anyone have one they need to get rid of?), then over on the right hand ikea tree there are some flower barrettes, hanging around the caterpillar plaques, just above the basket of correspondence cards. continuing right, there’s my hanging art quilt, and scattered on the table were some flower pins, which i displayed on a little baby straw hat from julia. thanks, julia! the actual sales experience was a little mixed- the things i thought would go like gangbusters (earrings) didn’t really- i think i sold one pair, while other things that seemed too wintry to me (flower pins) sold pretty well. anyway, some of these lovely items will make it into an etsy shop update in the second week of august, the rest will be squirrelled away for a show coming up in September.

after the sweat bath and stress fest that was artscape, we mafioso decided to do it up right with a bbq at ali’s. much fun was had by all, and no flash was used by me, so excuse the shake in these…

i thought whilst i’m dumping so much disparate info into one post, i’ve give you a hand update. i unwrapped it last night for it’s nightly breath of fresh air, and it’s not looking quite so disgusting almost 2 weeks after it happened… but, it’s still very bruised. i can’t bend my ring or pinky fingers yet, and i can’t put any pressure on the meaty part of my palm.

i took some photos of it, and now i’m thinking it’s gross and self-indulgent to post photos of my nasty hand on the internets. you’ll have to use your imagination.

unless you want to see them, in which case i’d happily email them to you, cause i love to share.

just love it.

m’kay, happy weekend, hope you’re doing something fun! indoors!
