Weekend, crafting and mail!

Hello all!  Wow!  I've had such an incredibly nice weekend just relaxing and enjoying myself.  The only problem is it wasn't long enough to do everything I had planned.  The weather has also been fabulous, more like spring than fall/winter.  We've only had one snow fall so far and it only stayed on the ground three days.  I love it!  On Saturday we went to Noah's Christmas Bazaar (at his school) and bought some delicious baked goods, as well as a few other things.  In the afternoon I took a really long nap and felt quite rested.  Then today we went to the outdoor Christmas market here in town.  It was such a gorgeous day out.  The market is really nice this year, with a ferris wheel and quite a few artisans.  We also had a nice lunch there.
Noah and Jeffrey as we were going higher on the ferris wheel.  Noah was a little scared.
As you can see from the view, no snow in Sherbrooke yet.  :)
Me and a nutcracker in the lovely sun.
Jeffrey's lunch, a panini and a salad.
My lunch, a Greek salad.
I bought this gorgeous handcrafted necklace for myself.  I plan on going back next weekend to buy a few Christmas presents and a pottery butter dish since I recently broke mine.
I had a chance to make some decos this afternoon but I only took photos of the two below.
I also received a few wonderful pieces of mail this week.
A wonderful letter (photo above) and goodies (photo below) from my new friend Maria from the USA.  The mannequin shape is actually the letter, really creative, isn't she?!
A great letter, Christmas card and FBs from my friend Victoria from Italy.
A beautiful handcrafted Christmas card from my one of my bestest friends Rosita from Finland.
A great letter and FBs from my friend Margaret from Scotland.
A Christmas package swap and "Vintage Telegraph/Mail" deco from a group swap.  I haven't opened the package yet, might wait until Christmas.
I bought this pottery set at Noah's Christmas Bazaar.  They had a section of used items you could buy.  It was only $2.00 and I love pottery items.  Not quite sure what I'll do with it though.
And, I bought a few items at my local craft store again.  Some items will be part of swaps.  :)
And, that's it for tonight.  See you again soon.  Have a nice week everyone!


  1. Hi Jacqueline! Looks like you had a wonderful Sunday at the Christmas market :) Did you ride the ferris wheel? Looks scary to me, I tried once long time ago o.O
    I enjoyed seeing the color of the sky in your pics! Seems like the weather was perfect.

    Awww...the deco you made, the one on the left is soooo pretty, I love the angel!! By the way, it's good to know my envelope is with you.

    Have a nice week :)

  2. Hi Jacqueline!! I would love to have gone to the Christmas market. We used to have one many years ago but it closed down. *SIGH* I'm afraid of the ferris wheel. It's one of the rides I never go on but I can always ride a rollercoaster without any hesitation. LOL!!! I think it's because the ferris wheel just goes round & round.

    What a great swap you received from Maria. The dressform letter is cute. I love the decos you received and created as well.
