I Meet a Friend, and Guts in My Mail

This Thursday I had a wonderful day.
First I went to the book market that was organised as part of the celebrations for Bommen Berend, a local holiday.

My Owner's OtherHalf had a stall at the market together with other illustrators. I took a look at their stall of course.

They had cool buttons.

And beautiful artwork.

After browsing a bit at the book market and the delicatessen market, I went to the Noorderzon festival, where I met up with:

We had lots of fun looking at the different stalls and displays, like this dragon.

Then we sat down to talk, to have a drink, and...

to have dinner!

After dinner we walked around town for a bit. We had lots of fun. Here I am at the A-Kerk (A-Church)

Finally Hammie had to go home again and we said goodbye.
It was awesome to meet up with him!

Here's my loot of Thursday.
A book, a bottle of raspberry cider, and some fun do-it-yourself kits that I will try my luck with soon.

Yesterday there was mail waiting for me when I got home:

Eve sent me a beautiful card and some really cool stickers with a spleen and a heart!

Thanks Eve!

Wow that looks like a lot of fun! It is always nice to meet up with a friend when you are on an outing. I think the book you got is beary interesting - Mean Spleen Fighting Machine - what is it about?

Oh, it was great! Seems like a long time ago already, we must make sure we don't have such a long time without seeing each other like this time, it was really to long ago :-)! Perhaps you and C. like to do a free papier maché 'workshop' here at our home one day? We love to share our new hobby :-)! Let us know if you two would like that!
