My sister , who lives down the street,
stopped by to ask if I wanted to ride along with her to
The Art Barn.
They were having a kind of yard sale of slightly used
and leftover art supplies.
She paints and thought she might be able to pick up something useful. She did the painting below.
(done by Ann)
There was an assortment of books, beads, paints, jewelry and lots of things to use as embellishments.
She found some water color paper.
Everything there was yours for a donation.
There was artwork on display
done by students of the classes that are offered there.
The two watercolors on the right of the picture below were done by eleven and twelve year olds.
They have some craft classes here as well.
On the way home,
we stopped at a local farmers stand.
It's a little early for me to buy mums..they just don't last.
They are very tempting though...
Lots of homegrown veggies and fruit..
The "proprietor" was telling us that this business was
family owned and run for three generations.
He pointed out his 97 year old grandmother
who was hiding behind one of the cases sorting tomatoes.
She took her bandana off so I could take her picture.
What a dear soul....
They sure don't make them like they used to !!
Farm raised meat..Filet $22.00 a pound !!
Great looking cookies...
There's no shortage of markets like this here...
One could spend the day visiting them all.
The moon is full and the nights feel like fall...Yay!!
It looks like a navel orange at the bottom..
