It has been way to Long!

Yes I am still alive, sorry I have been gone for so long, I have been getting ready for Christmas shows and I must say one down one more to go. The first one done is Landmark Center Holiday Bazaar. Now for those of you who don't know of this great building in St. Paul, MN, well here let me start by showing a picture and givng you a little history on it.

Well this used to be the old court house and rumor has it, well it's haunted. That's just what I hear folks, they used to have the jail cells down in the basement and they would hang people from the second floor, maybe the third, I can't remember exactly. Ironic because I used to worked at a law firm in St. Paul so I would go over to the Landmark Center for lunch. Then I had my Senior Thesis there for my BFA and for the show I was on the third floor in one of the old court rooms!

This building is just fantastic, here are some more inside shots from the old court room that I was in, on the third floor may I mention again.

I wish you all could have been there, the building is just amazing with all of the details, you can't tell but the big chandeleirs in the photo the class scounces are etched with this incredable gold floral design. Just amazing I tell you.

Well the show for me was a huge fun filled few days, I got to meet some really cool and amazing artists and I even had some returning customers. It was so fun to talk with them again. I just love my customers, they are truly the sweetest people and they all share a love of unique and vintage items. It is just so much fun for me to see what people pick out, all of my necklaces and bracelets are sized specifically for the customer and everytime I tell you it seems like the piece was made with them in mind. It truly is so much fun to see what someone picks out. I just love to see that my jewelry goes to a good home!

Anyways I should go I have chicken thawing in the microwave and I am trying to cook a nice warm dinner, it is absolutely freezing in Minnesota lately, like we aren't making it to the 20's anymore, well at least not until tommorow. So I leave you with a another shot of the wonderful festivities.

I know I so need a new camera, maybe Santa will come through this year! Until then.
