I Survived! and The Green Market Comes to Work

 Well, I survived the garage sale and would classify it as a success.  There were only a few items (relatively speaking) left for donating.  I intended to take pictures but honestly, I was BUSY!  The weather was beautiful and the shoppers were out in force.  There was a steady stream of cars all day.

The house is slowly returning to normal and I’m planning to spend a lot of time in my craft room this weekend.

Since I want to spend all my time sewing, I got a jump start on my food shopping today…at the office.  Yes, at the office.  Every other Friday we have a Green Market in our atrium.  Vendors come to sell their wares and it saves me a trip to the Farmer’s Market that I told you about here.

Here are a few pictures from today…

Artisan Cheeses

Lovely Orchids

A variety of other plants

Spreads and Dips
Greek and Italian Olive Oils
There weren’t very many vendors today but those that I use the most were there…except for the coffee lady.  My husband likes to try coffee beans from different countries around the world.  She’ll be back next time, I’m sure.

I finally got around to purchasing this…
I bought the ebook version and it’s already on my computer…just waiting for me to grab a jelly roll and get busy.
I’ll have more to share later in the weekend but for now, I have some cutting to do...a special project for my college student!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend J

The market at your work looks amazing, Jeanna. I'd never get any work done on market day - I'd be buying (and eating) bread and cheese all day! :oD

How lucky are you to have a market right where you work? Delicious. Glad the garage sale was a success, I hate those things, I'd rather just give the whole thing to the local hospice store and call it a day. Lazy I know.
