Recently Marie Day lost her beloved dog Bak. Bak was with Marie during the tough times of selling her ranch and bar in Washington State and traveling cross country to relocate with her in Washington, PA. His life was too short and he will be missed.
Well Finnegan, Marie's new Labordoodle puppy, has really big paws to fill. He is in Bak's old bed hoping to soak up the wisdom of Bak. Next time I see Finn he will be 65 lbs of love.
Amy the owner of the Mellwood Cafe @ The Mellwood Arts Center used recycled wine bottles to border the plants in the courtyard. The stainless steel vessels are leftover from Fisher's Meatpacking plant.
When you have two spoiled dogs it is a never ending task to keep your carpets looking good. Doggies love to eat their treats on the rugs. Steam cleaning will not remove the stains so I decided to get a carpet that I could paint when it started looking bad.
I did an art show this past weekend. Sam and dogs went to the cabin. So I had an empty house to paint my rugs. But was also doing a show. Multitasker that I am I did the show during the day and painted the rugs at night. Finished just in time for the return of Bear and LuLu.
Not sure I am entirely happy with the results....but I can paint over when I have an empty house again. I'm just glad my plan worked.
Marvin and Sharon were next to me at the Crescent Hill 4th. of July Art Fair. Love having great neighbors!
This show seems to be the best kept secret in Louisville. Many were surprised at the quality of seasoned pros mixed with fresh faces of new artisans. This means the show is an opportunity for a new artist to get started. And for the consumer to get a glimpse of early (usually under priced) work!
I managed to purchase 6 bottle trees for our front yard. Just can't get enough of them. Still want more.
Thanks again to my loyal peeps for making this Independence Weekend Art Show so much fun!
I have been interested in ART all of my life. I studied art in college and opened a porcelain restoration business in Louisville which combined my interest in art with my appreciation and love of detail. I have always been a collector of many things, amassing hundreds of thousands of buttons, trinkets, charms, bijoux, beads, found objects, and all sorts of fun things. I currently produce a line of whimsical art jewelry which I wholesale and retail across the country. I've been married to Sam for 20 plus years and we have 3 rescued Black Chow Chow's. Bear, KeLe, and Zoee my children with FUR! I will be sharing my various collections, art shows, artists, friends etc. And any thing else I think is cool will be in this Blog.
