Wonderful Weekend

Joy and I had a wonderful time at the Folk Art Show. It is always so inspiring and makes we want to go right home and create! I did manage to make a few purchases:
Do you ever see someone carrying a purchase at a show and think, "I absolutely must have that!" That's what I thought when I saw this great Halloween box with bone handles. I was delighted to see that the artist had more so I could purchase my own. The Great Northwoods Trading Company always comes up with great new items at every show.
I love tramp art, but can't afford the vintage pieces. Lucky for me, Chris Robinson created this great tramp art box.
I've been thinking about this piece since the last show and was so happy that Ginny Henson still had this Distlefink mounted on an antique English pork pie ink well.
As if the day wasn't already perfect, Joy and I took a ride further into the country to Genoa for a little shopping and a scrumptious lunch at Crumpet's Tea Room. Then we stopped at Donna's lovely farm to purchase some raw sheep fleece. When Donna calls, "Sheepy Girls!" they all come running. Each of the "Sheepy Girls" was so unique with great colors and sweet faces. Aren't they sweet?
She had some darling chickens, too.
What a wonderful weekend we had! I hope that you had a wonderful weekend as well!
“For this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I myself will search and find my sheep. I will be like a shepherd looking for his scattered flock. I will find my sheep and rescue them from all the places where they were scattered on that dark and cloudy day." Ezekiel 34:11-12
Blessings, Patti
