The Briar Patch


Despite an early afternoon of unexpected rain, our day last Saturday at the Briar Patch in LaPaz was a great time of relaxing, meeting new friends and artists, and enjoying some mother-daughter time. Our friend, Phyllis, owner of the lovely country perennial gardens, did a wonderful job of staging the event --would you just get a load of that refreshment stand?! I didn't notice until today that that horrible modern vehicle was in the background ruining my nostalgic shot!

Here's how our booth turned out:


It needed about three times as much stuff in it, but we'll keep working on filling it up for next time around! The woman next to us had the cutest potted herbs and flowers. They were all done up in antique containers--feed scoops, vintage canisters, enamel cookware, wooden crates--even a big wash basin. Here's a corner of her booth. I love the cherry pie table cloth.


You can find Mary Vogel every Saturday at the Plymouth Farmer's market selling the same wares.

This week I'm spending a little time each day listing some new bags, stationery and other items on my Etsy site. You'll see a little peek of some of them flashing on my etsy badge over there on the left. Visit my shop and see what's new!
