"It matches my snake!"

This past week-end, DH, DD + I went to the Lubeznik Center for the Arts
Lakefront Art Festival

While browsing the booths, talking with the artists
(awesome Scrimshaw, btw)

I came accross a small bin of pottery and nearly screamed
out loud "It Matches my Snake!" --- thank goodness, Lynn U
(from NANI)
was in the same booth - or, I probably would have startled the passers by.

Yet, really, the pottery matches my bobbin lace snake - perfectly!!!

During Show-n-Tell at Saturday's L.A.C.E. meeting, member Marianne had made a crochet table runner (very kewl with a hot pepper) and said she arranged her bobbin made snakes on her condiment containers.

So, when I saw the little pottery - I bought it right away, for my first lace snake to adorn. I was told we should keep our first project. Tho, I kind of like the 2nd one I'm making a bit better. Fewer errors and all ...

I was looking for a notecard to send to my MIL, and DH lead me to Margaret Michael card display. Oh my, there were raccoons, squirrels, birds, and this sweet bunny card hopped right into my hands! Sent my MIL a card with the Mother bird feeding the baby birds in the nest -- kept the bunny card ....
