This past Saturday morning I thoroughly enjoyed our town’s French Hens Market.
This month they featured a Ladies Luncheon . . .
. . . + a book-signing . . .
. . . by these 2 awe-inspiring women:
Tracie Thorson, left, from my favorite magazine, Where Women Create . . .
. . . + Anne Marie Klaske of Na-Da-Farm . . .
. . . where, twice a year, she + her family host
the Na-Da-Farm Barn Sale.
My friend, Alan, + I participated at this show a couple times;
here’s our booth in May 2012:
If you can, you must attend a 3 French Hens Market,
held monthly here in Morris, Illinois.
Here’s the 2013 schedule:
I’ve participated in this market a couple times, too . . .
. . . most recently, the wonderful, 2-day Holiday Market, last November!

This time, I attended as a shopper only,
+ here are a few of the things I brought home:
I know!! I’d never seen a coleus standard before, either!!
Isn’t it great?
David, the shopkeeper, told me how to pinch it back
to make it fuller + bushier.

I also bought this cool, vintage electric churn:
My plans are to have G.O. repurpose it into a ceiling light fixture.
What do you think?
I think it’s calling for a huge, vintage-style
Edison light bulb!
