holiday open house

twinkling lights, snacks, and handmade fun were all part of our open house this year during the athens holiday market...we were excited to have a few handmade things for sale as a fundraiser: our new *cookbook*, the sacks that amanda made for us, and some dyed playsilks, along with some treasures that rachel crafted...

the little ones played inside arrow and made paper stars & cloved clementines, while their parents shopped the market...

one of the sweetest parts of the evening, though, was the Pocket Lady (aka, keara) wandering through the market, charming the littles with her big smile and tiny treasures tucked away in her pockets: feathers, shells, kazoos, and other special things.
