1  Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 20 - GALLERY in The Swap Gallery by phoenixfiredesigns on: Today at 10:43:40 AM
Ok so Saturday of course was my craft show. Sunday Love and I were so sore/tired/beat from the 15 hour day we didn't unpack the car. I had put Maccha in my special wheeled case with other important/fragile things to make sure she made the trip home safely.

Monday was a BEAUTIFUL day; sunny, blue skies - gorgeous. So I thought I'd take the chance to show Maccha around my apartment complex. I got ready, got my camera, went to get her and....realized she was still in the bag in the car! D'oh! So she inadvertently went driving to work with my husband. Monday evening when he gets home, I grab the bag - including Maccha - and bring it inside ready for pics the following day.

Except TUESDAY it pours. Rainy, dreary day. Of course!! But we did get a little break in the nasty weather (before it got WAY worse again in the evening) so we did get at least a little chance to walk around my neighborhood. Even if it was a bit damp and grey out.

Here's one of the MANY palm trees around here:

And Maccha stopped to smell a hibiscus flower:

Then we went to check out the pool. Of course, no one was using it because of the weather.

She tried out a lounge chair:

And made sure to note the safety sign. (Though we're both pretty sure she's short enough that it doesn't really apply to her.)

Tonight, we will be preparing our Thanksgiving turkey in advance of tomorrow's cooking! Yum! And Saturday, we're planning on heading out to Disney! Grin

roler that castle is GORGEOUS! Wow. So pretty!

Just checking in from my phone to say - I'm in Kyoto on a crowded holiday weekend and I've lost track of how many people have told me that Olivia is kawaiiiii!!
Yay!! I'm glad she's having a good time and that everyone's being friendly. Cheesy

Yesterday I had my second show. We did one last Saturday and then another this Saturday. Left the house at 7am and didn't get home until 9pm so it was a loooooong day. Pretty busy too so I didn't get a chance to really walk around and see much of the other vendors, but here's a few pics I snagged from my cell phone:

Here she is making sure everything is in the correct place in the case:

And here's the view from inside the booth looking out:

Sorry this one came out a little blurry. There was a booth not far from me that's a local non-profit organization that provides custom wigs to young girls/women who have lost their hair due to cancer. They had these fun cutouts you could put your face into. So here's one of just Maccha:

And here's one of me and Maccha being silly together:

Funny story, when I came over to take Maccha's picture, of course everyone had a puzzled look on their face and one guy said, "ok, I have to ask..." and I laughed and explained how Maccha was visiting from Japan and that my little visitor was doing the same over there. I told them how LV works and they all loved it! They thought it sounded so fun! Grin We bought some pretty hair ties from them and made a donation for the organization too. Cheesy

Click any pic for larger or as always, I have all the photos in an online album here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/100886695306546989161/albums/6076761054131415185

Maccha got spoiled by the 80F/27C weather so the sudden drop overnight to 45F/7C has her a bit cold. I thought this was Florida! I heard her mutter.

Thankfully, she fits nicely in a hat of mine and has been able to stay warm. Smiley

Maccha came with me to help man (or maybe turtle) my vendor booth at a craft show called Crafts & Drafts yesterday! (You can see a gallery of shots HERE of the my show set up if you're curious.)

Here's a shot of her behind the scenes with me looking out from behind the table.

And here she is checking over the displays. (You might need to click it for a larger version and look closely to find her!)

You can see some of the other vendors in the row:

And the event was held at the St. Petersburg Shuffleboard Club which was build in 1924! So we made sure to take a look at the actual courts too.

(Click any picture for larger or see all the pics here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/100886695306546989161/albums/6076761054131415185 )

It was a really excellent day! I had a great show, the weather was lovely and we had fun. Next Saturday I'm doing another show (details info here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=436676.0 ) so Maccha will get to head back down to St. Pete with us again for that too. Grin

We're exhausted and sore but had a great time!

We had to run over to Target and they had faux Palm Tree "Christmas" trees! Grin Very Florida.

Then, Maccha found Mario - and friends! - hanging out in the toy aisle. Man, Mario gets around!! Grin

I couldn't get into the site last night so here's my angel package from dessadoll! I forgot to get a picture, but the box was gift wrapped. So just opening it was a present! Cheesy

Here's everything. (Click for larger)

There's paint-it-yourself wooden bat ornaments, a blinkie black cat pin, a reversible hoop (this side has bats), a Yule deer ornament, a steampunk tophat with owl, and a Victorian crow "taxidermy" in a frame.

The other side of the hoop is Calvin & Hobbes:

Closeup of the hat:

Close up of crow:

Thank you, dessadoll!! Grin

Here's Maccha with two of my three kitties.

Gracie is my little grey girl:

And Mika is my tabby girl:

The youngster, Ginger, was too hyper to sit still long enough for a photo.

I'll keep trying. Cheesy
