I find Artisan Shows exhausting. We have done quite a few and the getting ready ,set up, take down, is really tiring. It makes for a long day if you don't sell anything but the booth price was right and I do have a lot of stuff so her I go again.
WISH ME LUCK AND STOP BY IF YOU LIVE IN THE DUNDAS, ONTARIO AREA AND SAY HI!

I hung Boston Ferns up all over this summer the heat does not do well with the flowers here, not this year anyway. They are growing so large I am very happy with them. The little sign I painted for our son and daughter-in-law's Alice in Wonderland Wedding party so I hung it outside of the door, great memories!
MANGER full of photos taken by her husband, and recipes by her. The book is about their life in France with their 7 children ( she just had a baby boy this summer) and many, many dogs, in a fabulous country house is so visual and well written you feel like you are a guest in her kitchen.
I was thrilled when I visited MANGER today and saw that Mimi has a new book being released in October called FRENCH COUNTRY COOKING which is as beautifully photographed and detailed as A KITCHEN IN FRANCE. I have pre ordered it through Amazon. Click the link to have a look at the new book on her blog MANGER.
RESCUE DOGS MATCH. We are fostering him until the weekend when he will go to his new foster home, we will miss him but we already have 4 dogs, and big ones, so I think we are at our limit.
Hope you are all enjoying this lovely August.
blessings & bliss

The Snowball bush bloomed this week, it is very old. Queen Anne's Lace is everywhere I just love it's delicate flower. I did not plant many colourful flowers this season but I always plant the Lobelia, love that blue.
I should always keep my camera with me. Today at the screened door of the studio on the fences was a beautiful Hawk just sitting there watching me work, lots of canaries this year too.
I hope you are all having a lovely weekend and enjoying some of this cooler weather.
