Weekend plans

This weekend my sister in law, Joy, and I are going to our favorite folk art show - Country Folk Art Festival in St. Charles, Illinois. Someday we hope to participate in this show, but for now we are going to shop! I know that some of my favorite artists will be there - I just love anticipating what lovely work of art I might find this year...

Some of my past favorite purchases:Angel on church spire by Anthony Costanza
Autumn Thereom painting by Carole Behrer
Velveteen Rabbit by Ginny Henson
Adam & Eve by Chris RobinsonFolk Art Angel by Chris Robinson

I can't wait to share my new purchases with you!

"Put your hands to work, and your hearts to God." -Mother Ann Lee, Shaker sect founder

Shakers believed that making something well was in itself, "an act of prayer." I think all these works are beautiful "acts of prayer".

Wishing you a joyful weekend!
Blessings, Patti
