Delighted to share that I'll be in Redwing this weekend for the Fall Festival. The leaves in SE Minnesota are just starting to change, so it should make for a beautiful weekend escape.
I'm thrilled to share that Artful Living's Autumn 2016 issue features me as one of the top 10 A-listers (see page 129). Each nominee must be "Authentic: Discovered in the North; Validated: Meeting the highest standards; and Coveted: Longed for and in demand." What an honor to be featured among such talented artists!
I also received the good news that I've been accepted into the 2017 show in April in St. Paul, MN. Hooray! And, I've posted a number of new pieces on Etsy (Go to my Cannon River Bowl Shop) for those near and far who can't visit me at a show.
All this, on top of raspberries that continue to ripen in our backyard, reminds me of how fortunate we are.
Until next time, be well.
So excited to be joining the good people of Lakeville for this weekend's show. Here's the link to their FB page. It should be fun. I've been given advance warning that a number of people start perusing the festival before the 10 AM start, which should make for a great start to the day.
Looking forward to the cooler temperatures and fall colors. Getting ready for prime bowl making season! I've included a picture from Rehoboth Beach, MD - where our family used to vacation in the fall. Miss the ocean, but love the midwest waters.
Excited about this weekend's Fine Arts Festival in hometown Northfield! It's Saturday and Sunday. It's truly hard to imagine, but it's got the live reenactments of the actual defeat of Jesse James on main street, with horses, etc. And, carnival rides. And, lots of art. Tens of thousands of people come to our little town for the fun.
The following weekend is Lakeville. I'll be updating my show list soon with some of my fall dates.
Just an update for today - Saturday (8/27).
Benjamin's show in Austin is ON! He's excited about being in SPAM land.
Rachel is not/not doing the Northfield Riverwalk today. Early morning rains forced a cancellation. Benjamin will be back at the Riverwalk next weekend!
Headed to the Austin ArtWorks Festival this weekend - rain or shine. Eager to see what this little town made famous by SPAM and now research affiliated with Mayo is like.
Rachel may do Northfield's Riverwalk - though rain may keep her away.
One more day to go in Duluth at the Bayfront Art Festival. It's a great show - with a super view of the tall ships. Sharing the view from my tent (the one with the bike) on the giant yellow rubber ducky.
Rachel was rained out in Northfield, but will be back at Riverwalk next week.
This Wednesday, I'll be making the trek to Duluth for the Art in Bayfront Park festival. It will be my first time, but I hear that it's a fun destination. I'm excited to see the tall ships (and the rubber ducky). The show runs from Thursday to Sunday - more info on the show here.
I've still got many pieces that would make fantastic additions to your kitchen or gifts for others. (That said, I am starting to run low on a few items.)
Rachel will be at Riverwalk, happy to be part of Northfield's fine riverside market.
Meanwhile, our home garden continues to amaze with loads of tomatoes, peppers, and scads of melons on their way. Hooray for home gardens :)
Be well and hope to see you all at the show!
Amazing how fast a year goes by! This weekend is the Uptown Art Festival in Minneapolis. I'll be in spot #4311 (in the grassy mall close to where I was last year.) I'll be there Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
On Saturday, Rachel will be at Riverwalk in Northfield again.
Looking forward to a beautiful weather weekend and a great opportunity to catch up with old friends and make new ones.
pic below is of my toaster tongs...hooray for no more burned fingers :)
Excited about the big city show this weekend! I'm going to be at Loring Park for the Loring Park Art Festival. Looking forward to the urban scene.
The following weekend will bring us back to the Uptown Art Festival and Northfield (Saturday morning). Hoping for some beautiful weather again this year.
Meanwhile, enjoying a bountiful harvest in our home garden. Hooray for summer!
Looking forward to seeing many of you soon.
This week's picture is of my crepe rake and tool set. Scarce now, but hoping to make more soon!
Looking forward to seeing good friends in Northfield this weekend. I'll be at Riverwalk at the main square from 9 AM to 1 PM on Saturday. Hope to see you all there!
