Another Great Saturday at the Smithfield Farmers Market

This will be a short post as I didn't make it myself to the market, Coop was feeling ill from all the pollens and his allergies had him a needy mood. So I stayed home with him. I missed it but I knew Colten and Bruce could handle just as well.  I did request pictures got a few that Colten took so enjoy what I did receive. He did a fine job and I was thankful for what pictures he sent. 

This is lip balms, salves, lotions by Maddie's Magic Made With Love

Baked goods

Beautiful handcrafted wooden bowls. Love the mortar and pestle. Love! The rolling pins when I go next time I want to purchase one!

Wonderful walking sticks.

More baked goods by Southside VA Catering. I bought a gorgeous cilantro herb in a vintage coffee pot the first opening market. Love! I was so cold I didn't get to shop but when I was walking to the restroom I spotted it and ran back for my money. Of course Bruce was laughing! I'm a sucker for a tea pot, coffee pot, watering can and of course animals and art supplies. I can't resist! I'm sorry!

Of course it has grown a lot since I got it. I have it in my bathroom sitting on the jacuzzi tub. Love!

Jewelry at the market, next time I will know who's and where. Since Colten got the pictures all he can do is tell me oh that was a lady with a red shirt, etc. So sorry I can't tell you who this was or the other pics, but you get the idea and will come visit at the market!!

This is Happy Seeds which I love!

These were some of my cuffs out, I sold three last time. Yay!! I am working on getting back in the jewelry studio to work again. I sell the jewelry faster than I can make it! I would like to be able to actually get a collection going but it seems its slow because I sell it if I show it. I have more cuffs in the making soooo.

Bruce also came home with duck eggs from another lady. Five dozen. These are great for baking. Like I needed more eggs but yes I do! The ones I sell go quick and I bake so much not to mention the freezer meals which I make breakfast burritos. Mmmmm that would be a good recipe to share, note to self!

I had homemade banana bread with all my pecans and homemade vanilla extract. Which I am hoping soon to bring to market I am still working on the label.

The banana bread went quick!

They had called for rain all week and I didn't bake as much because I was afraid I would be coming home with lots extra, which is okay my family and friends don't mind! We had lots of soap which I am waiting on the lye to cool as I am typing this all on my phone with the Blogger App. Love! 

Tomato basil soap this is one of my favorites that I love having in my kitchens, yes I said kitchens. There is the family kitchen, the craft kitchen, and the outdoor kitchen with pizza oven. I know! I just finished pouring the tomato basil soap. It lathers well and gets rid of odors not to mention full of antioxidants! The tomatoes came from garden and so did the basil. I freeze the tomatoes in ice trays to add to the lye. I have six refrigerators and four deep freezers. Loaded! The basil I dry on my commercial dehydrator. I have infused the olive oil with the basil for more than six weeks. Which anyone who has been here knows how much basil I have. No shortage of basil! Love this soap! 

Miss Daisy eating a bottle. Love! Miss Daisy May!

Here is Samantha and my boots with Daisy! 

Although you can't se but Samantha is on the other side. Bruce took this pic of me litterly driving Miss Daisy, gotta love it!! See Daisy on my lap?

Bye until next time! This is the new nesting boxes Bruce built it took several weeks only on Sunday afternoons to complete but I would say happy chickens! Daisy likes it too when we go out to play with the chickens.

Cyber hugs,
