CRAFT SHOW "Season" Has NOW Started


"HOLIDAY" Craft Show Season... The FIRST of the Major "Regulars" is The SIGNATURES Show over at LANSDOWNE PARK. Four days of Artsy/Crafty CANADIAN HANDMADE STUFF!

SEE!  MOTHER even bought Me The BAG! -- Has Anyone else "noticed", that it's no longer "Getting-The-T-Shirt" - but, "Getting-The-RECYCLED-MADE-Bag"...?

Personally, I still believe that the 
"Clothing" is by far, much more useful. Think about it... You can "wear" it AND, use it as a

But, I digress...

Anyway, We got THERE around 11-ish... When it was still mostly SUNNY out. Was WINDY too - You could "almost" SMELL the "Snow" in the AIR...

There was a good Crowd, but thankfully, NOT over-whelming. Lots and Lots of COOL STUFF! Spotted a few RHINOS... One of the Regular ARTISANS is a GLASS-BLOWER. Pretty much ALL of His Items have GOLD in them! Hence, they were on the Higher Price side, but still exquisitely fashioned. He had 2 RHINOS! Very SHINY! And, Tempting....

Speaking of My FINE ART "Fetish", the Other One I had located, was at the ALICIA WISHART Booth. She does these brilliantly VIVID-Coloured Acrylic PAINTINGS of Animals... Yet, manages to transform whatever striking Hues into amazing Visual TEXTURE. Check out Her Website GALLERY - the PURPLE RHINO is to WISH FOR! Definitely on My "LOTTERY LIST"!

Another favourite Booth had these Fantastic "CUTTING" BOARDS/TRAYS... Made by ANDY BENKO - MILVERTON FURNITURE He had a vast selection of Exotic Woods. Most were TOO beautifully done to USE Food around them!


We ended up spending a good twenty minutes or so, chatting with TWO enchanting YOUNG LADIES from Montreal, who do THESE absolutely Fun-looking FELTED Pieces!

MARILOU is the one on the RIGHT. I never did get the Other One's name.

Whatever, They were wonderful to converse with! And, I think I may have managed to convince MARILOU to start Her own BLOG. I'll let You know if She does.

Meanwhile, as We were leaving Their Booth, I was "spotted" by one of MY Regular CUSTOMERS! -- Ahh... Business "Recognition", gotta luv it!

Eventually, We tore Ourselves away... I didn't want to get stuck in any of the approaching "Rush Hour" Traffic. Along the Route, We stopped off at BILLINGS BRIDGE MALL for few moments. I usually have to turn in there anyway, to get onto the proper Road... I think I spent more time PARKING, than IN the MALL!

FYI, People! The "LINES" are there FOR a Reason!

BTW, remember My "little" FACTORY ENDS "Haul" of the Other Day... I managed to "convince" MOTHER into making a STOP at that "Location"... The End RESULT - cashed in My available STORE POINTS and picked up 5 MORE Bags!

I *really* NEED to SORT out My YARN & Other STUFF Room!

OH! Hey!  My SISTER and BIG-D dropped by Tonight on Their way to MOM+BUMP-Waiting-To-POP!
They'll be in the "Area" for a while... AND, with many a Tale to Tell, I'm sure!
