Now Before I Show You This...

...remember what I said about "one woman's tacky being another woman's treasure"?

Go easy on me...



This Yellow Daisy Festival was, for me, obviously all about "the face."*

As in - most of the stuff that I bought had a face. A face that I found so irresistible that I had to bring it home...

Like this little guy:

German "Egg Separator"


He's a "German Egg Separator."

Ask me if I needed an egg separator, German or not.
Go ahead... ask me...

Heck to the NO! Of course I didn't need an egg separator.
I separate eggs maybe once a year, and I find that my fingers are more than suited to the task.
But what was I supposed to do - just leave him there? It was love at first sight. I realize he's kind of hideous, but what can I say? I guess that's just how I roll...

It was also love at first sight with this little lamb, as well:

Sheep


He's a Christmas tree ornament. I try to find these people each year, from the Au Gres Sheep Factory, so that I may buy one of their ornaments. This is the first time I've seen one of the greyish ones, and I was/am smitten beyond words.

So, I'll have to show you another picture...

Sheep Ornament


And this has absolutely nothing to do with crafts, or even the Yellow Daisy Festival. But as long as I'm showing you faces that make me happy - here's one more that I spied that made me stupidly happy:

Mack





*Technically, it was all about cute faces and happy tummies. Because the other stuff I bought was a slew of fudge for Bubba and Schecky, and some apple cider doughnuts from Ellijay ("Apple Capital of North Georgia") for me. Oh, and the aforementioned butterfly fries.

But I can't show any pictures of any of that stuff. It's all already been 'et.

It's all cool and unique! Glad you could find some non-crap. ; )
Fudge and cider doughnuts - YUM!
But I have no idea what a butterfly fries are. Either this is a southern thing or I don't get out enough. Or both.

Awww, cool stuff! I love the sheep especially.

Christy said...

Interesting faces LLA.

I'm with rohan knitter....what are butterfly fries???

TinkerBlue said...

The sheep is so cute. And I thought the egg separator was a tealight holder when I first saw the photo!

autum said...

I love the egg separator. Does the yolk comes out of his mouth, like he's puking up egg yolk?

Angela said...

Ha! I love the weirdness...but I REALLY do like the sheep. He's awesome.
You crack me up lady. :)

beki said...

From my own experience at craft fairs, it looks like you got some great stuff. Much better than crochet tissue holders with ruffly edges, made in obnoxious colors.

laeroport said...

Of course those things HAD to come home with you. And that egg separator needs a tea light inside. :)
The bulldog reminds me of a paperweight I was given when I left India - a brass duplicate of our house boxer/watchdog. Hmmm... must post a picture of him.

Renee said...

I love your faces too.

Thimbleanna said...

That egg separator is awesome! Does it really work? (Autum's comment is hysterical, btw.) Great pics with (I'm assuming!) the new camera!

normanack said...

The last thing I need is more stuff in my house, but I have to admit the things you found are cute, and easily would have found a place in my bag to take home!

Me three on the butterfly fries -- what are they?

Christina said...

I love the egg seperator! Who cares if you won't use it? Display that bad boy!

Chara Michele said...

I love apple cider doughnuts! :)

I think that sheep is adorable!

Gotta Knit! said...

Love the egg separator! What an adorable face.
