Saturday I took my 17-year-old and my 12-year-old to Autumn and Art, a small invitational art fair in its second year. It had rained early on, but it was dry, overcast, and muggy by the time we got out there after lunch. I really enjoyed them; I kind of wish I had come alone. I am sure if I had, I would wish I had brought them, because they bring an enthusiasm to enjoying the artists that only they can inject.
My youngest made an airdry clay sculpture, too.
But what I couldn’t do with all that youthful energy is linger. Contemplate. Imagine. And there was so much to marvel at!
This artist also had similar pendants made into jewelry, and oh how I wanted some!! It was just awful. One was a tiny mouse and a tiny cheese as a dangling earring set. And the cat pin was meowing my name, I am sure. But although I am sure they were worth $60, I can’t come up with $60 for jewelry. I am thinking groceries are my current investments. Sad day.
I love the watering can ATTACHED to the arm of this chair, poised over the attached planter. This is fun!
There were plenty of people in spite of the weather, including a current tornado watch. Or is it warning? Whatever the one without imminent danger is.
I am still saving my change, so maybe next year I will get to buy my own original. And maybe I’ll go TWICE; once with the kids, and once without.
