Saturday at the Barn at the Bridge
Hi All! Tomorrow I will be at the Barn at the Bridge artisan show at 250 Lakehill Road in Burnt Hills. The hours are from 9:00 to 4:00. It is a beautiful red barn and a beautiful venue for a show. This will be my first time there and I am so excited. There will be many different artisans and friends and such beautiful work. If you are in the neighborhood please stop by.
Today I was working at Valley Artisans Market and marveling at just how wonderful it is to be a working artist. On my home I was just overwhelmed for a moment at how lucky I am. There is a beautiful bridge(actually it's a road) that overlooks the beautiful hoosic river. It takes my breath away on good day and it really overwhelmed me with it's fall beauty today. Between that and the wonderful day at the market, I realized that if you have a dream and you take baby steps toward it you can live the life you've imagined. Not hard to see where Thoreau found his inspiration in nature. The thought that God gives us dreams for a reason also landed in my brain during that lovely ride home.
I've got to get back to work, so have a wonderful weekend. Hope to see you at the barn, see you at the market and see you at the Meeting House at the Shaker museum. Otherwise I hope I see you at your local gallery or craft fair or anywhere else that you can buy beautiful handcrafted pieces. Buy handmade and buy local!
