My first Farmer’s Market

What a perfect day! Last Sunday I packed all my glass jewelry, a few cast-concrete leaves and my hopes and headed to The Coventry Farmer’s Market hosted at the Hale Homestead. The beautiful location and perfect weather were icing on the cake in addition to the wonderful people I met.

The pie was gone before I could snag one, but all the people were a buzz about Millix Farmhouse Bakery and their fresh baked goodies. I can attest to Sleepy Moon’s hand-made soaps. Her Gardener's Grit is my personal favorite. Dearest Winter was the one who gave me the chance to sign up for the Market. A big thanks to you! The Bead Tree had great handcrafted jewelry and it was a pleasure meeting Jane from Snootyfoods. Yummy treats indeed! She was telling me about an upcoming fair featuring Connecticut artists. The event will take place in Oxford, CT on Sunday Oct. 4th. We’ll see if I can sneak a day out. I am tempted since I had so much fun at Coventry.

September Pendants

Getting into the autumn mood with the brisk mornings of September. System 96  has some new fall colors of fusible glass. Terra-cotta and a Pumpkin opaque are just delightful. It makes me want to bake a bread or something. Well actually just eat  cinnamon bread or something. Like a friend and I discussed, for some reason as soon as the cooler air comes, my body wants to squirrel away food. Anyways, back to what I really like to bake…glass. No calories involved there!

My favorite thing to paint is trees…and parts of trees such as branches, berries, and leaves. I feel like I can get away with more branch designs in the fall. Peoples attentions will be turning to all the trees around them ( at least here in New England) I feel like I am in my glory. Speaking of which, I should go and paint more trees right now. I’ll be having a tent set up at the Coventry’s Farmers Market this Sunday.

Somebody should come up with scented glass….yeah…so it  smells like pumpkin pie when the kiln is on. yyyuuummmm
