Johnny and I went to the craft show this past weekend. What a big place! They even had booths set up outside under the portico! There were some handpainted, humorous, pink signs. Two examples were, "We have no children, but we do have one cat" and "I like to fish, but I must work."
Inside, they even had an information booth, decorated for the season, but not in pink!
There were the expected beautiful Autumn floral displays; however, no pink floral displays.
This pleasant couple posed for a picture with their gorgeous jewelry. She's got a touch of pink on her jacket.
Here's an example of their work, in every color but pink.
Some nice ceramic pieces were for sale at this table, but alas, no pink.
This friendly craftslady (did I just make up a new word?) showed off her pillow shams, made with Marlins/Yankee material to reflect the World Series when the Marlins beat the Yanks! She confessed that she was a bit timid about selling them as she didn't want to anger the embarrassed Yankee fans! My Marlins-fan husband had a good laugh at that. (We know those team colors are not the one we're looking for.)
This table, managed by Norine D'Auria, had a ton of ceramic pieces made, but this one piece was her focus. It was in honor of October's Pink Cancer Awareness Month. All of the profits from this piece will go to the Susan G. Kormen Breast Cancer Fund. You can go to her Pottery Peddler Etsy shop to see more about it. It's titled, Breast Cancer Challenge Entry.
With all of this temptation around me, I bought nothing! Then I saw pink and thought of Pink Saturday. Look at these pretty Christmas ornaments!
This display of hand crafted gifts by Carrie E. Appio had a delightful picture frame, along with many other pink things. You can click on her name to see her many beautiful gift ideas.
What did I buy? I collect apples, and so I bought this cute apple towel for my kitchen. See, the "blouse" attached to the towel? It is used to hang over the oven door handle. Apple red is a deep, dark pink, isn't it?
