“Art in the Park”

We enjoyed spending the afternoon at Rainbow Springs State Park and attending the Annual Art Show.

It was fabulous weather, too

We saw amazing works of art as always and visited with artists that we’ve gotten to know over the years of attending.

It was fun to see Barbara Jones again. She was sweet to give me a gift card to use toward a special handmade piece of her jewelry.

I chose these beautiful earrings. I’ll enjoy wearing them! Thanks Barbara!

I like that photo of the water through the trees. Rather restful. We haven't done much this weekend. Went to town and loaded up on groceries, and visited my Dad at the nursing home.

LOL look at that weather and people in shorts

Shivering here up north :)

that last photo is just so lovely! :)

ann said...

Nothing fun around here. We did go visit the grand kids. They are always a hoot. We have snow and it s been very cold. I am a bit jealous to see you in your shorts. Art shows are always fun. Happy Thanksgiving.

Susie said...

Hi Miss Lavender Dreams,

We are enjoying mountain life, and getting back to the cold weather. Tuesday the weather man says 100% chance of freezing rain. Mom says we have to get use to doing errands before the bad weather sets in. As long as I have my blankie - life is beary good.

Hi Wendy. Are you getting dressed up in your pretty Christmas outfit?

Hugs,
Prudence

Susan said...

I wish I had time for some fun things--but I have to get projects done and shipped for the show in January. I am looking forward to all my grands joining us here for Christmas, but Thanksgiving will be quietly working, XOXO

Beautiful art fair..I love it..
Big hugs x

Donna said...

You picked a really cute pair!

Kathy said...

I was able to enjoy so art, too, at the Plucky Maiden's Junk Fest but most certainly did NOT have your beautiful weather. Cold and really windy here in in the PNW.

How I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Art Fests!
Two nights ago St. Augustine switched on their lights for the Holidays!! I do hope you'll go over for a night and enjoy the beautiful light show they have on display. If you are able- I wouldn't go over on the weekend - the town is crazy and full of people. A week day visit would be fun!! So much to see and do during the day and just walk the town at night!!
Beautiful last photo of the springs through the live oak and Spanish moss!

Butterfly 8)(8 Bungalow said...

Love the photo of the river! It looks like the fair was a lot of fun.

We sort of relaxed this weekend.

Jen @ Muddy Boot Dreams said...

Art shows are great, and it's fun to see how the artists are growing, and changing in their work each time.

The Boston Lady said...

Rainbow Springs! Such a nice place and I never knew they had an art show there. I love those earrings and the little tag they are hanging on is so cute too! It's like getting two things for one price. Not too much excitement this weekend here, but that's kind of a good thing for me! Ann

annie said...

great photos, loved the earrings!

Jeannie Marie said...

How lovely! I love the earrings and the cute tags Barbra Jones has. I'll be sure to visit her website. No outings this weekend, we are resting after a surprise visit from our son! We did dine again at Brits. It was every bit as good as it was before!

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

I love attending art shows to view all the fabulous original art. Love the earrings!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving week!

A Garden of Threads said...

Oh I would enjoy visit all the artists. The earrings are fabulous. I hope you have a blessed week. Jen

Ricki Treleaven said...

How much fun! I haven't been to an art show (for fun) in a long time!

Vee said...

It has been so cold that we stayed to home. Your weekend looks far more fun! Cute earrings, too.

Jeanne said...

I love the earrings you picked.

Diane Writes said...

Another crafty afternoon spent :) I love the paintings and the last picture. Is it from the same place?

Thank you for forever linking up namemate :) Have a great week ahead

NanaDiana said...

Oh- What fun and I love those earrings- they are so light and airy looking. We don't have anything outside this time of year! I had a good weekend with kids- xo Diana

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

The art show looks like a fun way to spend time on the weekend. We were up north at our daughter's home and it snowed heavily all weekend.
Had a good visit, drank lots of tea together but it's good to be back home.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Cute earrings! You had more fun this weekend than I did. I cleaned downstairs and did a lot of things that needed to be done before we go on our little trip for Thanksgiving.
Hope you have a wonderful week ahead and a very special Thanksgiving!

Kathy said...

How fun to go to an art fair! I would love to do that. I usually get to one a year in August.

I'm so jealous of your weather. It's 22 degrees here tonight.

Lorrie said...

Looks like a fun weekend. I love that last photo of the water and the foliage. Very moody.

cynthia lee designs said...

Seeing you at the show makes me excited that my Christmas show is this coming weekend. I finished up some Christmas necklace's today.
hugs,
Cindy

eileeninmd said...

I like the name Rainbow Springs, it sounds like it would be a lovely place. The art show looks like fun and your new earrings are pretty. Have a happy Thanksgiving and week ahead!

Joyce Olson said...

Oh what a lovely weekend you had-you always do such creative and inspiring things. We are with one daughter in Georgia then driving to Mississippi for Thanksgiving with my sweet in-laws~
Warm Hugs,
Jemma

I did lots and lots of schoolwork this weekend as it is the end of my semester and I have lot due. This is a short week so I will be doing much of the same over next weekend as well! I love your earrings.

That looks like a great art show to attend. Love your earrings!

Little Susie Home Maker said...

Oooh, that looks like so much fun!! I love art shows!! Did you know I majored in Art?
It is so weird to see your sunny weather! We have about 4 inches of snow with 12 inch drifts and still snowing! But it warmed up to 31 degrees! It has been down in the teens!
Have a blessed thanksgiving!

Musings from Kim K. said...

You always have the best adventures. We actually were in Orlando over the weekend! We've returned home to snow and very cold temps.

Barb said...

Hi Diane,
Such beautiful art and I love the earrings!
Enjoy,

The art show looks like a lot of fun. I love the tranquility of the meandering stream in the last shot.

JG said...

Craft Fairs are great! What a FuN place to go, Diane. We were glued to t.v. watching the Boston College/Maryland football game on Saturday afternoon. :)

Dawn@ We Call It Junkin.com said...

first, your header photo is beautiful! That art show looks great, my daughter would have loved that, as she's an aspiring artist. I also love your water photo, reminds me of the marsh in the SC Lowcountry. Take care - Dawn @ We Call It Junkin.com

Joy H said...

Love your earrings, very pretty! I just chilled this weekend and read a book. Love all the Christmas movies on this time of year too. Have a great week!

LindyLou Mac said...

I could see some lovely paintings exhibited.

Art and Sand said...

Oh, that last photo deserves a story written around it - absolutely beautiful.

Becca said...

That looks like a neat place for an art show, and look at you in shorts! Lol I'm cold! :-)

Mary Howell Cromer said...

It looks like you enjoyed yourselves at the art show...We usually visit a couple here in the Autumn, but this year, we missed all of them. Happy Thanksgiving~
