On My Market Table ... The Extended Version

I had a farmer's market yesterday. It was 100 degrees when I left at 1:30. I thought I was going to pass out. Luckily I had an iced coffee and a gallon of water. Phew! Heat is not my favorite.

Last weekend, when we stayed at my friend Larry's house, I found this wonderful surprise waiting for me. Larry's wife Janace works for Stampin' Up. She saw this set in the catalog and somehow knew that I would like it. Yep, she was right. Whenever I go to their house I look through that catalog about 4 times. I love that stuff and I'm not a scrapbooker. Wait till you see what I ordered, teehee. (Thanks Janace!)

And when we got home I found 3 boxes waiting for me. One was this lovely little travel pillow that Jenn recommended.

It's so pretty, isn't it? I love the colors and the lavender scent is so yummy. I got it from Mireio on Etsy. She's got some more pillows in her shop if you're interested. I'll be using mine on the 11 hour flight to London in a few weeks.

If you're wondering what was in the other two boxes, umm, it was fabric. Surprise! I know, I know, it's an addiction. I haven't taken any photos yet, but I did use some.

I'll be able to add a new quilt to the shop soon.

Oh, you got the travel pillow! Now we each have one - yay! : D

Don't you love coming home to packages - so much fun.

Can't wait to see your new fabrics and what you make with them!!

Now that you and Jenn both have travel pillows, you guys can travel to Chicago! :)

Oh my, you must have been sweltering at the farmer's market! This past week we barely got into the 80s. It was so nice.

I have some stamps from Stampin Up, too, even though I don't scrapbook, either!

The quilt is beautiful. Can't wait to see it in full view. Very whimsy and lots of fun. I can't wait for summer to be over, enough of the heat already.

I'm so glad you had such a great time and what wonderful hosts to treat you with something that's so perfect for you. I'm not a scrapbooker either but those stamps are adorable. That pretty travel pillow will really be helpful on your trip and the blanket is so pretty. Packages are so fun and yours are a delight.
