Would you go to a Knap-in ? “Mosaic Monday”

Do you know what it means? I didn’t...


until my hubby and I went to the Silver River Knap-in!


It was a  Flint Knapping and Stone Age Arts Festival!


My first! heehee!


And here I am making myself at home!


The inside of the Tee Pees were surprisingly roomy!


I stepped back a little to watch this...




But we saw some amazing arrowheads and relics!


I bought an arrowhead that this young man had made!



And this necklace that his mom created!


It was very interesting and a gorgeous day at the State Park!


I hope you’ve had a good weekend!


I’m joining Mary at the little red house for Mosaic Monday!

Now tell me...who knew what a Knap-in was?


Vicki said...

Hey, maybe that's what I need in my yard. A teepee!

You had me...I didn't know...but it looks like fun!!!

I sure didn't know what a knap-in was. Looks so cool. Seeing these pictures makes me miss Florida. (Just had a blizzard dump about a foot of snow on us overnight...ugh)!

I learned something new. One thing that I do know is this: one never knows where we'll find you next! :D

This was certainly a new meaning of 'knap' for me. The day with all the artifacts and activities looks interesting, something I would have enjoyed.
Thanks for sharing.

Very interesting - I had no idea what it was!

Bernie said...

Well I know what a Knap-in is now. What a fabulous outing ... I would have loved getting a close-up view of all the activities.

I love the clay bowls. Were they handcrafted? The little boy is amazing, he could already make beautiful and useful crafts. Have a great week ahead!

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

No I have to admit I would not have known what it was either.

Thanks for sharing your day with us

I wish I could have gone to this! The Silver River State Park is 5 miles from my house. I haven't heard of a Knap In before. It looks like you had fun, and thanks for the pics, at least I got to "see" it!

Freckled Hen said...

I've never heard of one but it looks like fun!

I never heard that word before but it was interesting to learn about it! It looks like a fun day with lots to see and do. The necklace you bought is very pretty!

PS: Yes, that is a tee-pee in one photo on my blog! The Brooklyn Museum had a special exhibit about the plains Indians and native life in tee pees ..very interesting! :)

Joy said...

Those shells are beautiful, looks like a good time. Have a great week!

Betsy said...

What a fun way to spend the day. No, I didn't know what a Knap-in was. Almost sounds like something from the 60's.
I love those shells!

Pondside said...

Thats something I'd never heard of, and it sounds like a fun way to spend a day.

The Painted Garden said...
