The Re-enactment in Ogdensburg,NY

We had a very busy weekend during the re-enactment which took place at Fort La Presentation on Lighthouse Point in Ogdensburg, NY. We had guests that were re-enactors, re-enactment watchers and even a family attending to be part of the weekend but not actual re-enactors.  It was great fun to hear all about the weekend.

While all of that was going on Tim and I were at the market. Many of the re-enactors came by in the morning to purchase goods to take back to camp and prepare meals over an open fire. Many bought coffee and were very happy to be going back to prepare coffee made from freshly roasted beans from St. Lawrence Valley Roasters.
When we go to the market, I usually bring baked goods from Baker Road Bakery to have on hand and occasionally I bring some things from North Fork Gifts. This time I did bring some of the new bird houses and bird feeders. I'm very excited about them and the lighthouse theme was completely appropriate for this weekend in particular. Here are some of the baked goods. The red and white Lighthouse is sold.
Here's a picture of a couple of the Lighthouse bird houses and feeders. I love the stone one myself. They all have their own personality and are each uniquely created to be one of a kind.
This morning I'm going to be working on messenger bags made from the burlap coffee bags. When I have some done, I'll share them so you can see what they look like. I hope to also get the bird feeders and houses uploaded to North Fork Gifts, Etsy and Art Fire. So please do check back later to see what has developed. Right now I'm off to work!

Baking and creating.....

Yesterday I made maple scones, blueberry muffins,chocolate chip squares and shortbread cookies for the SLU cafe. They were delivered this morning. I have an order for a dozen muffins for Saturday when we go to the farmer's market. It's been warm, really warm here but I'm not complaining. After 3 summers in a row where all it did was rain AND it was really chilly, I'm happy to have a summer that's more "normal" if there is such a thing. Everything is running about a month ahead. The golden rod is already out and so are the black-eyed susans and the queen ann's lace. Very unusual, kinda makes one wonder what the winter will be like. Here are some pictures of those baked goods. Enjoy.....

 Now it's off to tackle the front porch. Wish me luck!

Introducing some really awesome new products!

I have been very busy and I'm very excited to introduce some new products for the gift shop and my etsy shop. I've been making upcycled tote bags from the burlap coffee bags. It's great fun and I think people will enjoy using them. Each bag is lined. Some have coffee themed material, some have calico,some canvas. All are uniquely designed. These bags can be used for the farmer's market, grocery shopping, the beach, the boat, for your knitting, as a diaper bag or for anything you need to take from one place to another. I was able to carry most of my display for the market last week in one bag. Each bag has a set of woven handles. I'm in the process of designing handles from the bags as well. These should be on the gift shop web site soon. They should be on etsy today so check them out! I'm putting one in here so you can see what they look like. More will follow...
