Tiger Lily

These two lilies started blooming while we were gone. The double tiger lilies are next.

Supermaggie at the Renegade Craft Fair Brooklyn. There was so much good stuff at the fair - I think it gets better every year. It rained terribly at the end of the first day - thunder, lightning, lots of rain and wind in a swimming pool under a metal tent... not such a good idea. I actually really loved it. One of our racks fell in the wind and a bunch of our t-shirts got wet so I though it would be fun to have a wet t-shirt sale but everything dried out overnight so it wasn't really necessary. The second day was really nice, good weather and lots of people.

We will be at the San Francisco Renegade in a couple weeks - this one will be indoors.

we like to drive to the craft fairs, i really like road trips and michael really doesn't like to fly plus it's a pain to ship everything. i always take lots of pictures as we are flying down the interstate, most of them are blurry or of trees or eighteen wheelers but this on is pretty cool. this is on the way into manhattan approaching the Lincoln tunnel.
we almost got a flat driving into the city, right before we entered the lincoln tunnel we hit a big pothole and started hearing a clicking noise coming from the front right tire. the next morning michael found a huge bolt with the washer still on it stuck into the tire. we were so lucky it didn't go flat in the tunnel - that would have been terrible. but the tire didn't go flat and luckily we have a full size spare so michael change the tire and all was well.

The Art Star Craft Bazaar was Awesome!!
We went to Philadelphia over the weekend for the Art Star Craft Bazaar and it was really great - we had lots of fun and sold lots of t-shirts. We have to recover for a couple of days then get ready to head to Brooklyn for the Renegade Craft Fair, it's on 6/14 and 6/15 !
