Fair in Vittel

Yesteday I attended a Postcard Collector's fair in Vittel. I was so exhausted from the past days that I didn't really look forward for it. But well,  the booth was already paid and since Vittel ist just about 40km away from my village, I gave it a try.

The whole morning, I didn't sell a single item and worse, People didn't even look at my stuff. I was deeply frustrated and sweard it would be my last fair attending ever.

At afternoon, more "normal" people came in, in addition to the collector-Freaks that were here since the opening of the hall.
The Kids were pretty seduced by my Ipad on the booth that looped the"Vosgian Beast" Video and blackmailed their parents into buying them a copy. This was a cool experience, because it was the first time I presented the film via the Ipad and it was nice to see that it works. I didn't make a fortune yesterday but after deducing my expenses, there are 20 Euros gained.

On a fair with more visitors, especially visitors with Kids, I will probably be able to be more successful.

My Booth. The table was not really big, but well...

This little dog belongs to a seller I already know from past fairs. Yesterday, The guy just passed me the dog over to hold it while he wandered trough the hall...

Harvest

I didn't  expect to harvest this much big pumpkins this year.


Pumkin plants started a bit poor with very few flowers which took long to get fertilized. So I am a bit amazed that I ended up with 4 big pumkins and a lot of medium and lmittle ones. Fine.

I'm doing a lot of work these days. My mom and Benni are both better so I can spend more time on my projects.

Das Müll-Orakel

Well, here's about the new project. But Text is in German, since the project is too.

Tarot und Orakelkartensets. Ich habe schon viele selber gemacht, meist für den eigenen Gebrauch und bei Befragungen für Kunden.

Nun ist nach Wochen intensiver Arbeit wieder ein neues dazu gekommen. Allerdings ist es etwas...äh...anders.

Das Müll-Orakel.



Ziemlich schräg und vor allem frech. Aber es funktioniert. Recht gut sogar!  Und man kann es bestellen!
Näheres hier: http://www.diana-kennedy.eu/muellorakel/
Vergesst nicht, unten den "like" Button zu drücken...Verteilt den Müll in alle Winde ;-)
Wollen wer mal sehen, wie so ein Anti-Tarot ankommt.

Lots of incidents

I haven't posted for a while. This is due to the amount of incidents and unecceptected occurings I had in the past days and weeks.
I will make it short:

* My mom had a falling accident and broke the other foot. She had to go to hospital for surgery. She could leave by now and is at home in basel. I will go take her back to France By the end of next week.

* My cat Benni tried to pass trough the broken glass window of our main door and injured himself badly. He  had a surgery, too. He's better and on Tuesday, the Vet will tear off the threads.

* My car broke down Wednesday. Some employee from the thermal institution had to drive me home. And yesterday I could not attend my last cure day.  Car was fixed today.

Frankly, I am pretty exhaust.

Nevertheless I also worked a lot and will be able to present a brand new finished project right here in a few time. So stay connected.
