Quilts Quilts and more Quilts!

It is Quilt time at Ironstone starting Friday with the Mountain Heirloom Quilt Faire XXXV.

The vendor level is packed this year!  Even overflowing up to our Museum level. Watching all the unloading and setting up today is exciting. Can't wait to take a walk through the booths and see what's new from last year.

Even if you aren't a big quilt fan, this is a must see event. I love the Guild's "store". Every year I find great stocking stuffers and special gifts for best friends and family, all hand made with great prices.

Another treat is always the pathway markers. Made up of a variety of styles of shoes, these eye catching eye candy treats are decorated by guild members into some of the most fun pathway markers you would ever want to see... great ideas for family parties!  But, those aren't out yet! 
We will have to wait until tomorrow to see those little jewels

Vintage in Jeopardy?

One of our guests brought to our attention a case up for review by the Supreme Court this month.  They were upset at the thought that if this issue is passed by the SC, they won't be able to sell their mother's vintage glass or their Toyota without permission from Toyota or the German glass maker.  

Amazing how these little issues are decided by so few that alter so many lives and we know nothing until its too late. 

If you care, check it out and pass the word....
