Here we are half way through the show and it has been very busy. Thank goodness because we are here to sell and you need people through the doors in order to make sales. I know my customer and she is showing up at the sale. Lucky for us that urban woman often likes Derek's metal work as well. His new peanut in the shell feeder has been a received enthusiastically, less than half are left. My new suit has been in the fashion show daily which has resulted in many women coming directly to my booth after the show to check out my other pieces.

The One of a Kind show starts a week from today. November 28 at 10am. There will be over 800 exhibitors from all over Canada at the show.
Here's where all of the sewing happens. It's getting rather crowded in here and typical of any 3 year old, my grandson Tyson, chooses spots in my sewing room in which to hide. Between the furniture and the bolts of fabric, it's playhouse heaven. I often find hot wheels cars "parked in it's garage" under piles of cut pattern pieces.

There was a great party for the unveiling of Derek's sculpture on Saturday. The Gilroys, pictured with Derek, commissioned Derek to build a sculpture that would hold a door which they purchased in Morocco. Derek's work which has always been very architectural in flavour works beautifully with the door.

There is so much involved when selling art. People want to see where you live, how you live and what gives you inspiration. We have always been here to answer those questions as well as others and tried to make people feel welcomed. We have been able to treat people to the sight of art, the soothing sounds of the birds, the fragrance of the blooming flowers and now the taste of great ice cream. We have rearranged our shop and brought in a freezer which will hold many flavours of ice cream made by Kawartha Dairy. From art to ice cream is it that big of a leap? It's not really from art to ice cream it's art and ice cream.

Well after a little research, an outfit that is reminiscent of the Fort's Officer's uniform and the Sgt. Pepper's album cover. The first show of my season is the Beyond the Valley studio tour and there will be uniform jackets for the fashion forward fashionista in all of us. www.beyondthevalley.ca
