bucktown bound (aug 28 & 29)

Hooray! Just got news that Robin and I have been accepted into the Bucktown Arts Fest this August, so if you're in the Chicago area, set aside some time on August 28th or 29th to stop by and visit our booth. It would be an absolute pleasure to meet Baxter's blogfriends and all the wonderful doxies that call Chicago home.

I can't even begin to say what might be in our booth as we have yet to make it, but rest assured there will be at least one purse that incorporates some of these swell retro vintage label ribbons that I scored during last Sunday's flea market foray. I love these ribbons - they're ever so summery yet with a vintage twist that will make whatever they're used on completely unique. Chumley was pretty enamored of them, too, though as always it was the mysterious and new smells that captivated our curious little wiener boy.

Speaking of the wiener, Tiny chumley won't be able to join us, boo-hoo, but I am sure I will find a way for him to be there in spirit. Stay tuned as the details for this and everything else Bucktown roll out over the next couple of months!

Can't wait to meet you! Ike will be looking forward to modeling his Dapper Doxie Dud for you!

Uh, I think it is only fair that we should see whatever is made from ribbons or anything else BEFORE Chicago. We call first dibbs! Too bad Baxter can't go with you to Chicago, he and Joey could hang out!

Baxter, so sad you can't go along with your Mom. You would definitely draw in the crowds. But at least you look super cute amongst all the ribbons.

Congrats! That sounds like it will be great fun! We will be waiting for more details. Those ribbons are totally cool, Bax, I think your Mom should make something for you to wear with them ;o)

Jeeves and I are awaiting your arrival in our fair city! That's a great fair to be in, congratulations. And quite accessible to us urban low riders although the crowds might keep Jeeves at bay. Lots of time to figure that out beforehand. I know I"m babbling, I'm just so excited!
