October 7: market morning! Ours is a two-hatchback household, for good reason. The tent is up in the roof box which, to date, is our best curbside find ever :D
My lovely mama was my assistant this time around. We wore jean jackets without trying to match; if I wore glasses everyday I'd wear hers. Husby was essential too, but despite my best efforts I haven't been able to obtain his consent to publish his likeness on the internet, lol.
The best part about market was the surprise visits from friends and family, reuniting with Flower Friends, and getting to meet so many nice people! This smiling pair took away whole handfuls of my dried bouquets and northern sea oats to decorate the newly-opened restaurant Hello123. EEK! I can't wait to have supper at Hello 123.
And I got to meet Spring, a super talented photographer, who sent me a photo of my bunches of nasturtium, shoulder to shoulder. I can smell their perfume from here, can you? Mm, there's nothing better than leaning in, sniffing a flower, and finding that it actually has a scent. Anyway, go to Spring's website, cause she's really good at what she does.
Rachel sent me a picture of the cake she baked for Thanksgiving dinner. That frosting................ drool.
And THEN, Divya sends me this photo of her maple pecan loaf. Come ON! Divya's obviously multi-talented - check out her blog here.
The way to my heart is definitely through my stomach. And my eyes. We eat with our eyes!
Okay, I'll end with a slideshow (please sit tight - I want it to move about twice as fast as it does, but it won't!). So I was able to bring home a handful of mason jar arrangements leftover from the market. And exactly 7 days later, they still had so much life in them that I couldn't throw them out just yet. There was even a cosmos bud just about to open (white dot under the big yellow dahlia on the left). Yeah fresh cut flowers! So I made this for you. Enjoy <3
