Well we are back from a great weekend. The weather was great... I must say that the Anacortes Art Festival was wonderful.... the days of crocheted tea cozies is definitley over... I am amazed at the imagination of some of the artist.. The one thing that really stood out was the artists that recyled what we would think was junk... Those of you who know me personally know how much I love brooches... There was an artist there that took costume jewelry and took it all apart and then make a face from polymeer and attach it to broken up pieces of jewelry.. Amazing... Another artist took the metal bands that you wrap lumber together with and made baskets ... again Amazing... Back to the posts .. I am going to post a dessert and then a breakfast tonight and back on track for Monday.
