My Un-happy Birthday, & A Very Cool Vendor Event

Last week was my birthday.  A friend took me out a couple days early to eat and I had a wonderful meal, but it was a type of fish I had never eaten before.  I'm still not sure if it was the fish  or the chocolate lava cake,  but something  made me violently sick and I was up all night Monday night.  My birthday was on Wednesday & I had planned to go to Berkeley Springs, one of my favorite places, and have lunch with a friend who just moved there.   Unfortunately, I was stuck on the couch all week, and couldn't eat much of anything much less birthday cake!   I felt like horrible and  by the end of the week my legs felt like jello I was so weak. I didn't want to do " anything."  I couldn't read, sew, design  and  I had to force myself to get on my computer to see all my Facebook birthday wishes.   Thank you if you wished me a Happy Birthday!  I finally settled for watching TV  and fortunately, I just upgraded my cable, and I found some great Hallmark movies! I finally went to the doctor on Friday, and he said to treat like food poisoning with Pepto Bismol.  Yum Yum!  Ugh!
   On Saturday, I finally felt half way human again and started preparing for my vendor event for May 10.  I am really excited about this event and am honored that I was asked and "approved" by the Board.  I will be a visiting craft vendor at the "Purcellville Town Market" on Saturday, May 10.  I've been working very hard this week making lots of Mother's Day gifts, including shopping bags, handbags, pillows, aprons, and more. I have lots of new items that haven't been listed in my Etsy store yet.  The Purcellville Town Market is a farmer's market with lots of unique vendors, which not only includes produce, but also has bakeries, florists, organic meat, and more. For more information you can go to : http://www.purcellvillecommunitymarket.com
There is even a short video showing the vendors and what they make.   The Market is from 9am -1pm and the address is 130 E. Main St., Purcellville, VA.  Hope to see you there! 

 Pictured above  is a display of my shop, and below are some of my new items for this event.
