summer market :: the pretty and the pretty bad

yesterday i participated in the very 1st supa summa craft market at the flying m coffee garage.

let me share with you all of the pretty things that i took along with me to the market ::

little pants and skirts that really need a better way to display. however i think i may have come up with a solution after talking to a fellow vendor...

fabric button rings and hair jewlery

coloring wallets and cute wash cloths

tiny tote bags and four clearance crowns from a previous market

luca was the cutest thing over at my booth. after getting his fill of people swooning over him he settled in for a long nap.

now i will bravely share the pretty bad that comes along with market preparations...

two weeks of laundry shoved into the baby cradle, most of it unfolded. we co sleep with luca so please do not be alarmed- no babies were sleep deprived in the making of this market appearance.

and here is what my dining room table looked like on friday. i finally cleared it off this afternoon. my kids were thrilled to eat all of their meals on the patio outside.
i didn't photograph the sink full of dishes or the take out dinner bags that we accumulated over the last two weeks. but everything is back to normal around here after a big day of catch up.

see that rainbow knitting project in the last photo. i currently have that in my lap, a cup of tea on the side table and a sleeping baby over my shoulder.

happy sunday, friends.

a whole lotta luca

i have so much to share with you all... cute little hand knits, recent sewing projects, summer celebrations, a yummy iced chai recipe... i promise i will be back very soon with all of the aforementioned but this evening i am going to overload you with new photos of my sweet baby boy.

he is covered in delicious little rolls of baby chub, courtesy of mama's milk. it is just the cutest thing ever.

he attended his first outdoor concert this past weekend. widespread panic at the idaho botanical gardens. he loves to be outside.

this gorgeous green quilt was sewn and gifted to luca by a good friend. we have decided to take his picture on this quilt each month to track his growth. here he is at 4 weeks old...

... and just a few days ago at 8 weeks old. (8 whole weeks, people!!)
it appears he grew half a quilt square, no?

this is quite possibly the worst photo in existence of me, but luca, oh my! my heart melts each time he looks at me with those big dark eyes.
