Pickled Southerner

My post the other day where I admitted that I have no love for Azaleas could be tantamount to blasphemy by some. I think I could even hear a faint, “Well bless her heart!”. The passion I exhibit in my disdain for that lowly member of the rhododendron family can be equaled in my love for pickled foodstuffs. Cucumbers, beets, okra, carrots, garlic, jalapeños (yeah I eat them solo), watermelon rinds, etc. The hotter the better in my book!

Thanks to a lovely lady at the farmers market we currently have garlic, beets, carrots, and cucumbers in the fridge. I was eyeing some fresh okra at the booth where we got our cukes and tomatoes but got sidetracked by the goat cheese. I make some darn fine pickled okra, if I’m allowed to say. I used give them out as gifts along with homemade hummus and salsa.

Time to pick up some mason jars after the move.

I’ve shown our invitations before, but I have never shown the idea I had for our address labels. Time slipped away from us while getting them ready to mail so we ended up addressing them by hand with a silver pen. I was very pleased with how they turned out. When I started brainstorming ideas for our ‘day after’ photo shoot, I decided to go ahead and mock-up how I originally wanted the labels to look.

The envelope lining is from a roll of vintage wallpaper I won on eBay.

New Piece

I realized that I hadn’t uploaded any photos of one of my new pieces that actually sold at the Inman Park Festival. I only got a couple of decent photos during the rush of the last day before we left for Atlanta.

I’m going to make another similar to this, as no two can be exact. 🙂

Thriving

Remember our living centerpieces?

I was delighted to hear from our dear friend Beth on our anniversary, telling us that the centerpiece she took home with her is thriving and he hoped our marriage is as well. I love our friends.

And it wasn’t just about me!

Sadly, I didn’t get any photos of Gina’s stuff. I’m not sure how that happened. 🙁

I am working on a write-up, but for now here are a couple of photos.

Inman Park Festival

Michael and I are joining a couple of friends to sell our collective crafts. I made 16 new necklaces and squeezed in extra shoe clip at the last minute. I have several pieces ‘in process’ that will help me with a show I’m doing here in Charleston on June 5. I took photos of everything but have only managed to get 6 uploaded to my Flickr. I also tried shooting a new way today while being SWARMED by gnats.

I’ll upload the rest when we get home along with a full report. Oh yes, new computer will be purchased next week!
