I Like Thursdays # 91 cows and Craft shows and Vail CO
I'll start with Vail... over the Memorial day weekend we went to two art festivals, the mountains, and did some errands. The image above was at Vail
We started back in Frisco where I had to return the sandals I bought last trip, and we walked around and shopped, and met people and loved it all over again. But we came to see Vail, so on we climbed over ridges at 10,000 feet and the town was odd to me.
I felt like I was at disney world. It was fun to walk around, and sort of shop, and sort of meet people but it all felt kind of artificial. Pretty but not quite like a town. It has hotels and condos around a shopping area, but no town to speak of that we found.
first thing I saw was a herd...
I liked this scrabble art...
I liked these bags made from records!
Huh? A tidy studio?
Yep, she said, it has to be as it's so small.
she's headed back to live in St. Pete...
I was drawn to this tent... wonder why?
I talked to this artist a long time, and her mother (also an artist) even longer. I decided we needed to be friends, so I got her card and I plan to call her once we're settled and do just that.
I loved the gestures and expressions she captured in these pottery animals. Her mom said she was so imaginative as a child, talking for animals and drawing them as personalities.
I was like that... I am still like that!
Then one day she decided to return to her love of animals and clay and changed direction.
Now she is happy with her art and choices! Cool right? I want to be her friend.
I haven't forgotten about the small town post, just out of time...
For barking out loud, y'all! Is it thursday already??? That howl-iday with Dad home an extra day confused me! I'll tell you I have lots of likes but will just tell you this time about my new work...
I can tell if it's thick it's pretty much junk. Shiny? large sized? junk. I carry it home but sometimes I get so excited about my work, that I begin the shredding process on the way...
I'm the "carrier" and the "shredder" not the "picker upper"
Daddy does not enjoy being the picker upper but we all gotta find a way to contribute, right?
Now sit, stay! visit these people my mama likes who also do I Like posts! See ya!
