That was so. much. fun.
I took about a roll and a half of pictures (will put some up once I get them developed), and bought a bunch of stuff-- some artwork, which I won't be scanning any of, 1) copyright stuff, and 2) some of them are Christmas presents (waves to Kath and Ashley ;-)); a candle purple-glitter rose for Mom; a dragon temporary tattoo for Devin; and a little pink dish and some worry-stones from a glassblower's shop. I also bought two lip balms (Cocoa Mint and Maple Nut) from a cute little store that was handing out cards with a URL on them ( www.myladyschamber.com ) which I haven't checked out yet but I will.
And I was looking at these really gorgeous hairpieces that were either gold or silver with beads woven in, but they started at 35 dollars and the really long ones went up to about 150, and I was like, "Pretty, really pretty, but nnnnn."
So we went to wander around shops some more, and then we went to a jousting match, and the benches were a bit narrow and a little too high off the ground, so Chris stood behind me, and a couple of minutes after we got there I felt him put something on my head as he said, 'happy birthday'. *G* It's a gold hairpiece with purple beads; pictures of that will *definitely* be posted soon.
He has to go to St. Paul today to help finish taking out some of the concrete porch in front of the house (or rather, the foundation) but he should be back tonight. And he made me breakfast before he left. :-)
Speaking of pictures--This is what Kath ordered from Warsheep Productions and surprised me with today.
It's of two of our characters, Trader and Ki'Rana-- more information will be up on my website soon; will post the link. :-) Thanks thanks and thanks again to her (and Debi and Mary).
((ETA: The scene has been put on this new page, here
I am going to be so hyper for the rest of the day now. lol
