Today (Saturday), I am selling Horse and Man Jewelry at the Paso Robles Event Center for Cowgirl Christmas.  Now, many of you may be saying, “Wha?  She just had hip replacement surgery?!!”  And, you would be correct.  It was totally silly of me, but I had already paid the fees long ago and at the time when I booked my surgery I thought, “Oh, I’ll be better by then!”  Oy.  I am doing it… and I endured the first day – which was Friday.  But I’m kinda glad it is 0 degrees here and raining like crazy… cuz the crowds are NOT here.  This is good and bad.  Bad because we aren’t selling much… but good because I can’t move much.  Seriously, it is so cold in the venue, I feel like Nanook in a meat locker.  I had 3 jackets on, a scarf around my mouth and a huge fuzzy hat.  No one could even see my face, let alone the jewels I had on my neck.

But, alas, I am kinda proud of myself that I followed through –  and Hubby helped set everything up.  So today is another day selling – but at least I will be more prepared than yesterday.  I’m bringing my heating pad.

Here’s a lousy photo of half of my booth.

Half of my booth


Beautiful wild one…


And another… I love the lower lip.


Such a pleasant face…

I love this.

A new, wild baby.

Ha! This cracks me up. Young babies get so fuzzy in the winter – and everything sticks to them.

This dog was just adopted. How precious is this moment?!

A tree made of books!

This made me smile.

Ahhhh. I would buy these if they were Xmas cards.

Succulent cupcakes. Some people are so creative!!

A lovely group of curious wild horses.
