Yummy Harvest

Before leaving for Hampton Virginia to attend Art and Soul, I have had to take care of a few chores. Grocery shopping for the family in hopes that at least some meals will be eaten at home while I am gone, picking up various prescription refills etc., returning library books, doing laundry (leaving the folding) and harvesting the continueing starwberrry crop! The harvesting was by far the most fun, and oh so tasty!!!
We have a pretty small patch- 2 rows about 4 feet long and this was the yield!!! Whoo Hooo!! I think that it might have SOMETHING to do with the fact that we use only organic methods on the property and that we have an enormous hooly bush nearby that blooms at the same time a sthe strawberries. When the holly is in bloom the air literally hums and the bush quivers from the movement and feeding frenzy of hundreds of Honey and Bumble bees. I know that the berry plants got alot of attention from the bees waiting patiently in line for the banquet at the Holly bush!!!! Got to love those bees!!!
In the afternoon, onWednesday, I will be on my way to Art and Soul. I will be taking three classes. I have an Assemblage class with Julie Haymaker thompson on Thursday, an Art Journaling class with Traci Bunkers on Friday, an informal Art Journaling group meeting with Diana Trout on Friday evening , and a collage class with Cathy Thomas on Saturday. On Saturday evening I will be representing Artistic Artifacts at the vendor fair and selling hand dyed vintage linens and various other unique treasures for wonderful artistic creations.
I will be taking my laptop with me and I hope to have a few moments to blog and at least share some pictures, during the retreat.
In the meantime, Art On all!!!

Oh, are you going to have FUN! Can't wait to see what you do in all your fabulous workshops.

I had no idea you were a farmer, too! I knew about the flowers. Your strawberries look luscious, and I hope you get to eat at least some of them!

If I worked at Artistic Artifacts I would be broke- can't resist her yummy vintage linens.
