However, now and then we come across an item I really like and want to take home. It might work in the booth but I want it for the house. Mr. 58 sometimes has to remind me that I can't keep it all. We do however bend the rules somewhat when it comes to ironstone pitchers....
and brown transfer ware. I love both and have a hard time putting them in the booth. Much of the ironstone does make its way to the booth. Wish I could say the same for the brown dishes. This brown transfer ware bowl was quite unusual with a mother stirring a pot of soup as a little boy watches.
So now you know NOT to come to Booth 58 looking for brown transfer ware. It's probably at home where I can enjoy it every day.
Easter blessings to you and yours from all of us at Booth 58!

Found a cute idea on a new favorite blog .... Dear Lillie used moss to cover letters... Decided to buy some of this moss and play with it in the booth this weekend. Well, it turned out to be a bit messier than we expected. Ha! Nothing a little sweeping couldn't fix. And we think a little dirt never hurt!
Have also gotten a kick out these great little bitty peat pots. They have been a big seller. Fun to add little touches of the messy side of spring. Always good to get your hands dirty this time of year, anyway - right?

A year ago today, we jumped into this adventure and we have loved every bit of it!
Fun to look back today and remember all the "firsts" this year has brought us....We are having way too much fun!
Happy Birthday to You, Booth 58!
