Some new items for New Hampshire Renn Faire

I have some new items I'm going to be selling at NHRF.  First are earrings.  I have four pair.  I just found these hangers interesting and I was able to find some that looked like they should have been pairs.  Here they are.

The second new item is worry beads.  These are made of Tiger's eye beads and celtic knot hangers.  Tiger's eye is supposed to bring calm and serenity.
They are hand knotted between each bead and are on a doubled cotton string.

Lastly, I've been playing in the kitchen again.  I read somewhere that purple/red cabbage will turn things a lovely soft blue.  I took the outer leaves from the cabbage, cut them up and simmered them for 30 minutes.  The two white snoods and the ecru lace mitts went into a alum mordant simmered for 15 minutes.

Here is a picture of the finished product.  The lighting was off, I'll try to get a better picture later.  The baby blue around the edge of the snood is the color they came out after an eight hour soak.

 Today is setup day at NHRF so I'm off.  Hope to see you there.
