|Muscatine Farmers' Market|
|With her Sidekick...|
With very little in our shop to display, Cheryl fashioned a dozen key chains and created a small display from an abandoned card table and poster board we found in the shed. We were not expecting much, and still we managed to sell enough to spark Cheryl's creative fire.
The rest of the week, she has been busily sewing up additional key chains, pencil pouches, money clutches and baking cookies. Today, we headed back to Muscatine with more offerings ( on the same small card table) and hoped for the best.
|Look at all the Stuff!|
|Concord Grape. Wild...|
|Tart Plumbs. Also wild..|
|Not really sure.... But it is pretty.|
|Like a gem!|
|Cheryl finds history.|
|We found these button blanks.|
|Some had holes in them,|
|Cut button holes in shell.|
And although the camera had a difficult time trying to capture the iridescence, each shell glimmered like silver against the rocks.

|Alligator Gar head|
|Wonder how it gets that name...|
|A Slightly larger version of the Alligator Gar|
(I'll refrain from geeking out on the Garpike too much. Real quick, Ganoid scales and a heterocercal tail.... With a swim bladder that can act as a lung! Very cool prehistoric fish.) You can probably see how the Alligator Gar gets its name.
