|Twitch and Whiskers at the Brookline Marketplace Craft Fair 2013|
I brought with me a great selection of new necklaces inspired by my new favorite materials: vintage plastic carnival whistles and lenticular Vari Vue cards. Color and baubles abound!

It was an absolute pleasure being next to a fellow teacher at the show. Erica Smiley of Smileybaby Hats is an art teacher by day and a whimsical crocheter of all things adorable during her free time. Erica offered a menagerie of animal-themed hats including octopi with curly arms, owls with larger than life eyes, and adorable puppies with floppy ears. Her clever designs went beyond critters. You could even don a Smiley Baby strawberry, aviator hat with glasses or a Thanksgiving turkey on your head! At the craft fair, Erica debuted her new dragon bike helmet covers and they all flew out the door before the end of the show. Visit Smiley Baby Hats on Facebook and Etsy to see all of Erica's crocheted hats, helmet covers, and mittens. Smiles guaranteed!
