Christmas Craft Fair Today

6:26:00 AM

Twas the night before the craft fair 
and all through my house

Not a creature was helping...
not even my spouse.

The vintage stockings are packed 
in a wood crate with care...

By morning all the ornaments
soon will be there.

The angels are ready with paper wings instead,
while silver glass Christmas balls creating the head.

Vintage Tart Angels
The banners and garland will be strung all around,
Christmas music will be playing a beautiful sound.

When what to my wondering eyes will 
But a hand painted sled pulling up the rear...

With me in an apron and tags in my lap,
By now I could use a very long nap.

Last year's craft fair

My days have been busy,
my mind in a flurry.
The fair opens early so 
I'll be in a hurry.

Wish me luck for today,
another craft fair in sight...
Happy Selling to all and to all a good night!
