An Affair of the Heart in Tulsa

 
Saturday, I had a few hours to kill and I went to the "An Affair of the Heart in Tulsa" show at the Fairgrounds.  It is a semi-annual show that is about the best around.  It had over 700 boths.  I must say that the majority of it was jewelry, food, women's and children's clothing.  However, I did find a few things kinda handmade.
 

This goose or duck or whatever it is, appealed to me the minute I saw it.  I'm not a real Victorian person, but it seem to capture my attention. 
 
 
I loved this little Christmas tree made out of squares of old book pages with scalloped edges, a bit of glitter and stacked.
 
 
Everyone needs a Christmas necklace and earrings.
 
 
There was a Moda fabric booth, so naturally I had to buy some beautiful cherry fabric to use for pillows.
 
 
This was my last purchase.  An angel made out of old wood and different wood pieces.  She reminded me of my garden angel.
 
So, there was my trip to the show.  I think I did pretty good considering there were 700 booths of stuff. 
 
Enjoy!
 
Till next time, Judy

If it was like last year, it gets more and more commercial and less and less handmade.

You never seem to lack for places to thrift and shop there in Tulsa! Love what you found today...the duck and the angel are wonderful! I am watching our paper for the craft fairs that the neighborhood churches have every December. I have a lot of luck at those.

XO,
