I love to go to art and craft shows. A couple of weeks ago there was a big one, Peddlers in the Park at Lake Farmpark here in Lake County, Ohio. The tents and awnings covered the entire festival grounds and then some. It was a beautiful early fall day, perfect temps, lovely blue sky. These people are so talented and it looked like there were a lot of purchasers.
My favorite, and you will see I took lots of photos, was the metal artists. These two talented welders take pieces/parts of farm equipment and implements and turn them into the most amazing things.
I also fell in love with the Tole Painted bird feeders/houses -this is the one I chose hanging in my garden.
The Christmas season is coming and I encourage you to seek out and support your local artists. If you want more info on any of these artists/crafters just contact me and I will try to find their contact info. Pause any time in the slide show to get a longer look.
