A little girl and her family came into Treefort today, did a little browsing, chatting, etc. As they were about to leave, the girl whispers to her father then proceeds to scurry up and hand me a rock from one pocket "this is for you" and pulled a smaller rock from the other pocket "this is for him" (Sailor). She had collected those rocks from the Oregon coast, and gave them to us! I was touched. Here they are: Little kids can be so thoughtful.
I made this tipi for Sailor for x-mas. I took the idea/measurements from one that a woman makes in Bend and made it a little different: a bit bigger, reversible, two doors instead of one. It's not perfect, but decent for being made in a couple of hours. And Sailor loves it!
was fun. Not too busy, but fun, nonetheless. Here are a few photos from the night: I had buttons, kitties, pants and slings for sale. 'the combover' logo on the pant tags. kitties! Sailor with Teafly, who was selling her prints and one-of-a-kind paintings/illustrations/etc. Also available on her Etsy shop here. I was so grateful that Sailor occupied himself with new toys and other kiddos for about 40 minutes - I needed a break from being the entertainer/snack bar.
