...quite the selection of clippies :)
the most WONDERFUL kids' section!
And here's Robin sporting a Fern and Sprout "FELTY DELIGHT!"
After our visit to T. Jones, Anne and I walked up 17th to D Bar for some lunch.
We ordered the pizza pesto salad sandwich. It was so tasty!
And for dessert, the "shake and cake." Dee - lish!
Then we made a quick trip to the Fabric Lab. I wanted to see the featured accessory wall. It looks AWESOME!!! Thanks, Tran!
I think my "Fancy Delights" look great next to those necklaces. LOOOOOOVE the picture frame decals!They also featured my clippies on a different wall. Fern and Sprout everywhere!Here are some more pics of the shop. I am so excited to be featured in the ONLY shop in Denver that carries ONLY local handmade artists.
It feels GOOD to be so busy. I am so grateful to be doing what I love. Even though I am exhausted today, it is a GOOD tired, because I know I have been working on my passion. I can't imagine sitting behind a desk all day.
Thanks for a FUN day, Anne!!
Tune in to my Etsy shop, tonight around 10:30! I will have an update with my new "Felty Delights!"
Hope you are having a delightful week!

Evan started 2nd grade. What a big dude.
Yesterday, I got a cooking lesson from my new friend, Natalie. We made dumplings! What fun! She just lives two blocks away, and my boys love hangin' with her daughter. Natalie sings and she also has a cooking blog. Check it out!
This is Natalie, choppin' carrots.
We chopped carrots, and cabbage, and ginger.
Then we added some chopped tofu.
We added an egg to the mixture to "glue" everything together.
Then we spooned everything into the dumpling paper, and folded the paper squares into triangles. We sealed the edges with egg/water mixture.
About 6 or 7 at a time, we dropped them into the steamer.
Only 6 - 7 minutes til YUMMY!!!!!!!!
They didn't last long! And they were soooooooo easy!
I am REALLY excited about these new fuzzy pieces! They will be on my Etsy shop, soon!
Speaking of Etsy, I have been NEGLECTING MY ETSY SHOP! I haven't updated or added any pieces since I opened the shop. I apologize. It should be up and running by next Wednesday. I promise!!!!!
Please - try the dumplings! So easy and so fun!

Some old planes flew overhead to signal the start of the parade.It started to sprinkle, but we just snuggled under the blanket, and kept enjoying ourselves...
The boys and I loooooooooooooooooove old cars and trucks, and we saw plenty!!! So cool!
I am so glad I went this year.
My friend, Traci, just started a clean/design/organizing business called "Squeaky Chic." (See ad to side.) She is going to ROCK IT!! On Sunday, we went to her house to take pics for the website. She made koolaid for the boys and had the most precious little cupcakes for them. Here are some of the shots I took. Her place is so CUTE!!!
Some new acquisitions...
So - I really am chomping at the bit for school to start. I have soooooooooooooooo much to do this week, and I need time to DO IT!!! The boys are excited and so am I! Stay tuned for my new "Felty Delights."
