Saturday at the Art Fair

 

 

 

It was art fair weekend in my town and my husband and I spent an enjoyable afternoon strolling the closed off main street and looking at all the exhibits. There was a line of tents as far as we could see and the weather was perfection - blue sky, sun and comfortable temperatures for walking around and shopping.

 

 

I am always drawn to those exhibits that are the most colorful; full of light and sparkle. There were many kinds of garden art, also a favorite, but at the moment, my garden does not need any more art pieces. Looking and imagining is still fun though :-)

 

 

These candle lanterns, made from etched wine bottles were very pretty, but one of the first things we spotted and I never made it back to this tent. I could see a couple hanging in my backyard trees on a beautiful summer night.

 

 

After walking up one side of the street, we found a outside table at a mexican restaurant and spent an enjoyable hour or two drinking margaritas and eating some yummy food - my shrimp enchiladas were so good.

 

 

What did I buy? I was looking for a bracelet to replace the one purchased at the art fair last year, and sadly lost. I found the artist and was happy to buy a new fun yellow, pink and black bracelet that I will enjoy wearing all summer long with all kinds of outfits.

It was a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

Happy Monday!
