Tea on Tuesday and Chainsaw Carvings 2014, Chetwynd B.C.

Relaxing with tea, Double Cream Earl Grey and lunch, Shepard's pie :)

I was away for another trip and finally getting around to posting the photos for you to see--had to catch up on lots of yard and house chores :)   
We were one of the vendors at the annual Chainsaw Carving in Chetwynd, B.C.  My Daughter-in-Law is starting a new venture and for this event we set up a tent but in the near future she will have a mobile 'barn'.  She makes things and she takes other hand made items on consignment---currently from people in Quesnel and Chetwynd.

Delena and My Kinda Country---my ladder with goodies is in the back, there's horseshoe 'tulips' in the barrel in front.
Delena's gorgeous hobby horses, below. 

Furniture made by a lady in Chetwynd. Wine racks made by Delena and another lady from Chetwynd.  Mushrooms and bowls from a man in Quesnel.  Some of my things on the coffee table. 

One of my blankets in front and more on the rocking chair in back, handmade soaps, salves, lotions, and bug spray, picture frames, wooden bowls and that's a wee bit of me that you see :)     

And while we sat at our tent.....there were chainsaw carvings going on.

Hope you enjoyed your visit  :)  be sure to visit Elizabeth and the tea group here:

Tea Tuesday

Didn't really get any paper projects done this past week, but I did get my picture frame glued and ready for some photos :) or at least I think I going to add photos, I kind of like the look as is.

I used a piece of 12" x 12" cardstock, SU Sage Shadow, for the backing and swiped it with some Distress paint, Picket Fence as well as the SU Cool Caribbean ink pad.  

and another blanket done :)
Sitting here resting after yard work and sipping a lovely cup of double bergamot, earl grey, black tea--lovely aroma.  I'm going to slice up that orange in a minute and enjoy that too :)
Also picked a couple of flowers for the table outside.  Not much blooming, I love the darker lilac (lost the name), it has a very pleasant scent, not like the regular lilacs.  I filled the jar half full of rocks so it doesn't blow over :)
That's it for me on this lovely Tuesday :)
Join the others for tea, etc. you'll find the list over at Elizabeth's blog:
Have a great day and thanks for popping by :)
