I don’t know how you feel about succulents but in the last couple of years I
have really gotten to love them.
(These were from a vendor at the Old Saybrook Art and Craft Fair last week)
Maybe it’s the ease in growing them?
and of course they don’t require as much watering….
and that’s always a good thing.
Oh except these are ferns.
They may lack flowers but the colors make up for it.
Ferns make a nice addition to these troughs too.
I spent most of my time photographing things that
I didn’t leave a lot of time for shopping
but I did manage to find this little necklace.
The top is from a real acorn attached to a handmade bead.
While I was retrieving the website of the vendor I bought
this from I noticed the links weren’t working right,
so I went back and fixed them.
Just incase you wanted to visit
The price was reasonable at $15.
The necklace looks petite next to the hydrangea flower but it’s a variety
called “ The Swan” which gets the biggest blooms I've ever seen.
It gets it’s name from the way it grows.
Starts off like an ugly duckling and
matures into a.......yes you guessed it
It had just rained a few minutes before and with it came a cool breeze.
Ahh so nice after all this heat we’ve been getting.
While I’m on the subject I thought I would show you a print I bought on one of my
other trips to the craft fair.
It’s a Giclee Art Print. From the word “squirt” in french.
If you’re interesting in how it’s done you can read about it and the artist below.
I just know that it spoke to me the moment I saw it
…..and isn’t that what Art is supposed to do?
I’m a little behind on framing it but I’ve been painting a lot of frames as of late…..
so I should be able to get to that soon.
Waiting for the rain to come…….
skies are getting dark and rumbling in the distance.
Hopefully this will cool things off a bit.
How’s the weather your way???
