Art in the Park and the "Thingie"

My booth at Hurkamp Park and my fantastic helper!

This weather here in Virginia this weekend has been absolutely gorgeous, and I got to spend the day outside enjoying it yesterday at Hurkamp Park in Fredericksburg. I have a tent at Art in the Park this weekend. I don't know which I enjoyed the most, the customers or the four-legged-friends they brought with them. Fredericksburg is a very dog-friendly town. My daughter and I considered bringing our own poochables  but decided it would be difficult to help customers and keep track of our happy-waggy girls at the same time.

The show runs again today from 11-4. I hope you'll come out and see us if you're in town. There are fourty-seven vendors with a wide variety of art. I have the good fortune of being located between North Carolina watercolorist Walter Creech and local art-quilter Lori McCown.

As soon as I get home from Art in the Park today, the mad rush is on to get everything together for my booth for vendor night at Art and Soul in Hampton. I'll have photos and a list of the items I'll be carrying later in the week. (These items are completely different from the items I have at Art in the Park.)

In the meantime, my "thingie" arrived in the mail, and I'm using the objects above to embellish it. Art and Soul attendees have the option of receiving a secret "thingie" in the mail to alter and bring to Art and Soul for display. We don't reveal what the thingie is until everyone arrives with their decorated object. It is always amazing to see how much variety is achieved using the same object as a starting point. This year's them is Art and Soul in Wonderland, and the item fits perfectly with that theme.
