So many lovely things! Fortunately, when you have a camera, you can have a memory to take home, if not the actual thing.

I just loved the colors of these wreaths.

How cute is this?

I don’t know why, but I love that this is only half a wreath. I guess half a wreath is better than none, as the old saying goes.

Here’s the lady that made the miniature wicker chair and the half wreath. She told me her husband died two years ago, and she likes to make wreaths and crafts to keep busy and to bring in a little money. She uses some of the bushes she grows in her yard in the wreaths, like pyracantha. And she likes to grow bushes that give berries so the birds will have something to eat. Nice lady.

Cute flat baskets.

Last, but not least are the sock monkeys! I’ve loved sock monkeys ever since I was a kid and I saw one my friend’s grandmother made her. She did not appreciate the sock monkey and rather abused it. I loved the sock monkey, but no one ever made me one. Isn’t that a sad story? So now I have a cute picture of a sock monkey and his girlfriend that I can keep forever. The End.

    I love sock monkeys, too! My daughter had one, made my one of my “adopted grandmas” at church. I wonder what happened to it??? I suppose it went away in one of my cleaning fits or a “we should share this with a younger child” fit.
