Before anything else, let’s take a look at Alice.
Alice, at 11:00am, was already a mess. I promise that at 9:00 her hair was actually brushed straight, her face was clean, and there was not a spot of dirt on her clothes.
Okay, now on to the topic of the post. Funky Finds.
My friend Amber collects cool vintage and antique things and wanted to do a show here in the valley. She asked if I wanted to help, and I said of course! It’s this weekend, and planning is coming along very smoothly.
We have 21 vendors, super cute decorations, awesome entertainment and I spent all morning making these:
I know, I could have just gone to Staples and gotten the sticker-backed name tags and written “VENDOR” on the front. But these are 10x cuter. And aesthetics matter for something like this.
I machine stitched the bottom ribbon, but hot glued the rest because it saved me approximately 4 hours.
Our “colors” for the event are red and aqua. I like a color scheme.
I’ve also made 65,003 feet of fabric scrap banners.
I cut rectangles out of fat quarters and then fold the top 1/2 inch over the ribbon and stitch it.
They look pretty dang cute.
Maria will have a produce/homemade yummies stand. I made an aqua and red table cloth for her and today and tomorrow we’ll be making:
– breadsticks (we’ll serve with marinara)
– jam-filled pastry pockets
With an adorable face like hers, I’m expecting her to sell out in 10 minutes.
