Just up the street at Oak Heights Elementary School on Saturday, gosh lots of work for not as much return as I'd hoped, but it is good to be out there to see what people like, and awfully good to meet some wonderful people, including my neighbor Lindsay who sells delightful and useful baby and children's items, also online at: --check her shop out!

More Onyx..

I thought this photo was rather old workhorse Canon died and I am left with one that doesn't have as many whistles and bells but sometimes the light still cooperates!
