Oak Bowls Continued and the Glade Guy

The Oak Bowls sold yesterday! Have I mentioned how much I adore my return customers?
I am running a felting wash today so there isn't a whole lot to report about fiber.
Oh! I did get my Drop spindle in the mail from Froggy Fibers yesterday: a fabulous Etsy seller and fellow Etsyfast member. It is a gorgeous canary yellow and she gave me some pretty chocolate brown wool to start with.

I also want to mention the awesome door-to-door salesman who visited me yesterday. First of all, I have a No Solicitors sign. He knocked, I didn't answer the door. He stood there forever so finally I opened it up and said "can I help you?" and the guy handed me a can of Glade air freshener. Before he could even explain his odd behavior I handed it back to him told him the truth: that we didn't use chemicals like that in our house and that we don't take solicitors. he tried to tell me he wasn't selling anything (this is what they all say now) and then something about testing out a new carpet cleaning system. I closed the door. I thought about showing him that he don't even have carpet in our house but I didn't want him to see anymore of what was inside.
So watch out when you open your door. Someone might shove some Glade at you.

I am both happy and disappointed that the oak bowls sold!

That guy was a little creepy... partly because he stood there for SO long.

Sounds a bit fishy to me!! There are some weirdos out there...

Congrats on selling your bowls!

Yeah I forgot to mention Kristen was there! Or that Seamus was jumping on the couch waving to the guy through the picture window.
