I never had a chance to post yesterday. I am busy making lists and checking them twice and finding out if the seller’s agent is naughty or nice.
Incredibly, there were still peonies at the Farmers’ Market yesterday morning, but I swear, this has to be the last of them! I picked up a bunch of fresh lavender, which made the whole car smell fabulous. I also got a funny little plant called Boxwood Basil. It’s a basil plant with tiny leaves and it’s shaped like a boxwood plant. I find that the bigger basil plants tend to get too leafy and leggy as it gets hot in mid-summer. With this plant, I will be able to pick a few leaves off and chuck them onto pasta.
I am very excited that I sold two sets of my summertime signal pennants on my Etsy site. One set was a great pale blue and white damask print. The other set is for a deck overlooking Baltimore’s Inner Harbour and is made up of a print of signal flags! It will be perfect for the deck which has a nautical flair to it.Speaking of my Etsy shop, I will be getting some more of that gorgeous French Ivory-handled knives and forks. My ex-housemate, Andy, is collecting it for me in England and Wales. He’s a community artist, so travels around a lot. I asked him to keep an eye out for this, since it’s nearly impossible to find in the States. He’s done a great job for me! Some of the sets are still in their original presentation boxes!
In return, I sent his two boys a huge box of toys and games for the summer. Fair enough?
