Kittens, Flea Markets and Fun!!

Happy Labor day!!!!

Good morning!

Lookie what was born this weekend?

Noid had her babies...
She had three...the second one was breech and didn't make it despite all efforts...





LOOK!!! this one has an M on it's forehead!!!



Kaleigh and Maddy had an impromptu JAM session



of course she had to use auntie kaleigh's other guitar..because HER'S was at home and maddy's guitar DOESN'T have a GUITAR STRAP..(hint hint hint...lol)maddy is so good at dropping hints..lol




...and KALEIGH makes her singing playing debut at a trendy posh coffee house on Sept 18!!!

She has an AMAZING VOICE!!!

working furtively on some halloween swaps...

here is one of the ornaments for one swap...


two ornament swaps....a pinkeep swap...a shadowbox swap...a mermaid doll commission...an artwork commission...another artwork commission...an artwork tote..l.I LOVE the thrill of a full planned week of art!!!...and i'm so happy that i have the entire weekday week free...(only work weekends and holidays)

then some days a fleamarket gets tossed in...(our wisconsin days are numbered for outdoor fleamarkets...thus...

Our day began quite early..we were up at 5 to head out to the fleamarket..dawn was just breaking as we got there...





maddy got the first fun thing of the day...she found a button booth...



and found two buttons to make her dolls some new headbands with!

glass buttons normally sell in her booth for a dollar or more...of course it was maddy that was looking so hard for those PERFECT buttons...
...so that landed her a quarter a piece price tag!!!



dani was looking for some wheels for the chariot she just aquired...(photo prop)

hmmmm would these work?



and this pile of trunks caught my attention! one would make a nice coffee table!



nope looking for some old wooden shutters to make a screen for the living room..focus focus...

...and there was a story time (found maxx a (insert GASP here) BUZZ LIGHTYEAR book)



plenty of goodies to find...







Maxx got a pair of rain mud boots (a bit big...but they did fit his...



and he had to try them on...



and one of maddy's dolls can NOW sit in style in her pottery barn chair (insert the MADDY CHARM here) for a dollar!



i got lots of goodies...maxx was only too happy to help carry my new halloween wreath to the wagon...(guess that meant he could run free... instead of ride)




could use an extra arm carrying our finds..



because the wagon was getting full...

where's a guy to sit!!!?



move over goodies...maddy is tired...

maxx spies her sleeping...



the geese (flying south for the winter uh-oh) gave us a cerimonial HONK...GOODBYE



...althought there is one more fleamarket here first weekend in October...I am scheduled to work...

..which is where i'm heading shortly...for my 10 to 10 shift...wonder if it will be as dramatic as Saturday...ugh..hope not...

HUGZ TO ALL!!!!
