The Morning Glory Fair
Today, Helen went with her friends Rebecca and Mary, to the Morning Glory Fine Craft Fair in downtown Milwaukee. Helen didn't have a booth at the fair, but she does sell on consignment at the Morning Glory Gallery, housed in the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts. Helen has been selling hair accessories and brooches there for the last few years, and made a couple pins specially for the fair. Both of these are made from vintage kimono silk. As you can see, one is a sunflower. It was time-consuming making all those little teeny things for the center. The other one is a bright fall colors thing with a carneliam bead in the center.
While they're at the fair, I took care of the house, the way I always do. You know, keeping an eye on things from an elevated vantage point. Helen came back in the late afternoon with a bunch of jewelry and some ceramics.
