BIG WEEKEND ~ ~ ~
Ginger Cazan created these two redware pieces ~ I love her work and don't see her much anymore ~ we did a couple of shows together but not now! Our kids will probably sell all this stuff in a garage sale for 50 cents when we're gone ~ but I love redware so I'm enjoying it now!
Some other acquisitions were these beautiful skeins of handspun yarn ~ aren't they gorgeous? Even if you're not into fibers, the colors are so pretty!
This show was well worth the trip down to Columbus! Hundreds of artists ~ traditional and contemporary ~ some very funky and eclectic! We were there from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and only sat for a bite of lunch! I was so tired when we left and drove home to go out for dinner with my old friends! We met them in Ashland at 6:30 at Surella's ~ if you live near Ashland, you should give it a try ~ very good food ~ and beverages! We had a lot of fun ~ stayed till we almost got kicked out! Then Sonny and I stopped at the Happy Grape because Teddy & Miki asked us to join them ~ I hate to tell anybody no ~ they may not ask again! We got home at midnight!!
Saturday, was a Fraizer family wedding ~ at a farm ~ very simple but it did the trick! We got home at 10 that night ~ the old people are slowing down!! Sunday we went to Camden's fifth grade football game and then had a wiener roast here for all of our kids and grandkids!! Great fun ~ great food ~ lots of laughs!! Luke & Jake, the two 7th graders, stayed all night with us and I got them off to school this morning with homemade smoothies and eggs and toast!! Don't tell my grown kids ~ they will remember that I didn't quite do that for them ~ probably some cheerios and a pop tart!!!! Grandmas are smarter ~ and have more time!!
I have tried numerous times today to send photos from my 'smart' phone to my email but no dice! I wanted to show you my old friends and pix from the wedding. Oh, well ~ you'll have to imagine them! Silly me ~ I fogot that I can just download them from the phone to a picture file ~ here's the bride with her dad ~ the tractor and haywagon brought us all back to the wedding site! Kind of fun!! Especially watching this old girl get up on the wagon!
Today, I've been washing sheep fleece ~ now that's a stinky job!! Have a good week everybody ~ and you know I appreciate you stopping by!!!
