Jerry and Jesscera laugh at me when I log into blogger... I do my little chant: "I hope it's not spam, I hope it's not spam, I hope it's not spam..." and then my hopes are dashed on the rocky hills of auto-bots. It's annoying... it wastes my time but the worst part is the disappointment that no one is commenting except my apparently legion of fans in the robot community.
On a much brighter note, I got my farmer's Market acceptance and got 6 whole dates.. yeah! And I love the spread of the dates, I got one for each month and 2 in August. I love having the extra one in August, that's usually a hard month for me to find enough shows to do. Here are my dates: May 11th, June 15th, July 13th, August 10th & 24th, and Sept 14th! I have a couple more shows to hear from in the next week or so... and then I'll get my website updated. I need to start getting out the 2nd round of apps now that I know my market schedule.
Tomorrow is Rings & Things trade show in Des Moines at 4800 Merle Hay Rd at the holiday Inn. So I'm going to drive my hubby into work so I have the car, I might have to look for some other stuff when I'm out and about. Last weekend Jerry and I hit a couple of antique and flea market places and scored 2 more typewriters, 2 more adding machines, 2 cameras ( one is the really old box kind! ) and 2 sewing machines among a few other odds and ends. Gosh we sound like the ark of lost appliances here... 2 by 2! We didn't get to hit our favorite place because it was after hours... so maybe I'll wonder out there. I might stop over to Valley Junction.. I haven't hunted there is some time. Then again, without Jerry it won't be as much fun... and if I found another typewriter, who will carry it for me?????
My Mom's Birthday is Sunday. Happy Birthday Ma!
This weekend in an effort to get my butt in gear I've got a goal of 15 inventory items for this weekend. I plan to focus on earrings using my industrial bits from said appliances. Mostly.. I have a couple of earrings lurking in my brain that have nothing to do with typewriters...
So I"m washing more loads of salvaged parts this weekend.
I think I over did this last batch. There was this really kewl piece in it.. it had the lovely grungy look, but had some oil and ink on it. I "forgot" the batch in the tumbler.. so now it's still very nice but almost too clean looking. Maybe Swellegent can grunge it up without making it dirty.
There really is a fine line between icky-dirty and lovely-grungy.
Jerry took in that half finished piece of jewelry to the hardware store and the guys didn't bat an eye. The only comment was that the screw was odd ( as in 7mm) and most are evens ( like 6mm). They found him nuts that fit in less than a minute.
Love those guys.
