A Farmer's Market Treasury

Check out this colorful and tasty looking treasury by SparrowMoon over on Etsy. It is delightful. And oh-so appropriate this Saturday morning as I gear up to enjoy the Wooster Farmer's Market and Local Roots!

She has also featured the veggie goodness on her blog, The Sparrow Moon.

Woolykins at Local Roots Market & Café

The wonderful rustic shelving at the market worked perfectly with the distressed cabinet I got for the guys.

Local Roots Market & Café in downtown Wooster, OH, is now a showcase for some Woolykin friends! Thanks to the hard work of some talented and visionary ladies, the artisan space in the lower half of the building is really evolving into a fantastic display of locally produced, hand-made goods!

A few days ago I set up a shelf in the market where there will be a rotating batch of bunnies, mushrooms, droplets, veggie magnets and various other wooly critters. I plan to add a few more fellows this weekend. You can expect more magnets, a new colorful bunny and hopefully a few surprises.

Speaking of this weekend, the market is having an impromptu artisan day! Many of the talented and friendly local artisans that showcase their wares at the market will be on hand, hanging out and available to chat about their work. Come visit us and take the opportunity to also pick up some fresh vegetables, fruit and other locally produced food. And if you are around for lunch, the café is open too! I can vouch for the yumminess.  I promise to share some photos of the day, along with some of the other artisans and their fabulous fare!
Mr. Green Stripey Bun (he'll let YOU give him an official name!) is waiting for a ride to his forever home.

Spring has sprung some changes!

It's been an interesting couple of months, to say the least, and there are many changes on the horizon.

First of all, this blog will soon be the home of Woolykins! You'll be able to continue to follow the exploits of the furry little beasts in their ongoing journey, just under a new URL:

So what will you find at Well, that's a SECRET, silly. But you'll find out soon!

Hello Hedgehogs!

I may have mentioned in the past that I adore hedgehogs and one day hope to enjoy the companionship of a little fellow myself. In the meantime, I must content myself with enjoying hedgehogs vicariously.

Today I bring you some of my favorite hedgehog Etsy selections!

A New Look. A New Name.

What the heck is going on here? Where am I?

It's a new look and a new blog for 2011!

I have been pondering and scheming for quite some time in regards to how I want to move forward with my art, needle felting and various creative projects for the new year. This is the first step in what I am sure will be an ever-evolving entity. 

Wondering about the new name? Well, things were getting a bit confusing what with Jennifer Hayes Art web site, Etsy shop and blog... since I've been Jennifer Hugon for  about 5 years now! So, I'm going to slowly phase those items out (although I think the shop may stay around for awhile as a place to sell the artistic odds and ends I accumulate), and begin to phase in Secret Place. 

There is a story behind that name, one I will share when it feels right. (Ooh, suspense! I love surprises!)

I apologize to any of my blog followers who may have lost the blog trail what with all the name and URL switch-a-roos. I promise I'll make it up to you ;)
