Arts and Crafts Fair

Fairies Market will be at the Sipapu Arts and Crafts Fair next weekend!!!  
My partner is packed and ready to go.  She has beautiful quilts and lots of sewn items in stock.  As for me I'm working on my display.  I don't have a lot of room so I need some great vertical display ideas.   
If you have any suggestions.
PLEASE share.

I'm still making jewelry and hoping that we have a good turnout.  Keep you fingers crossed for us!!!  
Even better if you are in Northern New Mexico
STOP BY and say HI!

A Visit to Los Poblanos

We stopped by Los Poblanos Farm in Albuquerque, NM where we had a nice visit with some friendly folks and the farm animals.  This is a local farm but not a small scale farm by any means.  

Being here reminds me of my grandparents.  They had a big ranch and together they worked the land and raised a variety of livestock. They understood the cycle of life and how each organism has a purpose, nothing was wasted.

The Farm Shop
One of the things that Los Poblanos is known for is organic lavender.  They make a variety of products that are sold here at the Farm Shop.  I love the lavender soap and the salve, those are my favorite.




It was a nice visit - as always.  As much as I would love to run out and buy a farm I won't but I will continue supporting local farmers/ranchers and enjoy the fruits of their labor.

Have a GREAT weekend!!!

Summer Elements Blog Hop

Rita from Toltec Jewels is hosting the Elements of Summer Blog Hop.
 It's an opportunity for participants to share the things they treasure about summer. 
I live in Northern New Mexico where the winters are cold and the summers are hot and dry.  We try to take advantage of the few short months we have to enjoy the sunshine.
My family
LOVES the outdoors.   
We camp, we hike, we fish, we cook out and we take road trips.
 Life is busy so this is how we enjoy each others company and RELAX.
 I love fireworks! 
The bright lights against a dark sky remind me that summer is here. 
 (D.C. is one of my favorite cities.)
4th of July Fireworks!
 Summer means gardening - a labor of love.

I look to nature for color combinations and work them into my jewelry designs. 
I am drawn to crystals. 
I used a combination of Swarovski crystals in various sizes for this simple bracelet. 

 A list of all participants of this blog hop are listed below.  Please stop by and say hello. 
Thank you Rita!
