Last night a bear came into our yard and tipped over the compost container. Yikes! I hope that the container is okay. Bears can cause so much destruction! I can see that this bear also empty out the bird feeders that I had just filled yesterday. I tend to forget that we share our home with wild animals.

Yesterday I went into town, Two Harbors, to see the Heritage Days Festival. In the past, the
Agate Bay Crafters used to organize the Crafts Fair. This year someone from the City of Two Harbors took over this event. I was very disappointed! Hardly any crafts, mostly people selling things that they had purchased - even bed pillows were being "hawked". This is not the craft fair that I have formerly participated in. Very unpleasant. I am glad that I decided to "just stay at home" and not display my mosaics.
Do you remember this line "Just stay at home!" from an old Lily Tomlin skit that was on Saturday Night Live maybe in 76 or 77? Lily played all of the parts of a "road trip" including a teen aged daughter who said she thought an elderly disabled person needed to "just stay at home!" At the time my friend Bonnie and I laughed as Lily was so good at just hitting the right nerve.
Here are a few examples of what I have shown at Heritage Days in the past.

Well my Eino and Inez Table is gone, sold on Sunday July 4! Can you believe it? Someone was shopping on-line on Sunday. (Perhaps it was raining where she was?)
Now that this Table is gone, I find that I miss it. Do you ever make something and then miss it when it is sold or given away? Usually I am so happy that someone else saw the beauty in something that I made that I don't think about the item being "gone."
So here is a photo of this very magical Table with Spirals and Leaves.
