Queen of Arts Show and Sale in Solvang

Here's my spot at the show. We had a great turnout and three days of sales and visiting with friends. Syd started this show 13 years ago at her home in Ballard and its grown to 36 artists showing their creations at the Elverhoy Museum indoors and out.
Dawn made these great planters out of recycled tires!
New art friend, Sukey Hughes and I traded every day. She had paintings, prints, puppets, cards and shrines. I now have some great presents for family and friends.
Cindy's wonderful glittery pins and angels and shrines delighted everyone.
Barbara's felt scarves are always a big hit.
Sue and Vicki has some fun new items this year, dolls, hooked hot pads, luggage tags and cards.
A smiling Penny made special gift tags from vintage art, fabric collages, and brought tin robots, postcards, and paintings.
Carol had her jewelry, book arts, paintings and more....
Most of our rug hooking group showed up to shop and visit. Half of our group was in the show so it was fun to have their support and company.
Kristen's little doggie came to visit at the end of the show and I got to hold him. We finally got a photo of his wonderful ears...Kristin had to say " Where's your treat?" to get him to look at the camera.
We had a great 3 days with perfect weather and great friends....and lots of sales....most of us are happy but tired today and look forward to next year.

What a GREAT SHOW! Your things look beautiful~as always. I wish everyone could have seen my hubby's face when I told him I wanted one of those tire planters! (He thinks I'm going to be a crazy old woman with any and everything hanging from our trees~hopefully spinning things!) We live in the Ozarks...and we Have been called Hillbillies. OK, not us personally, but we see some strange things hanging in the trees here! Hey, that would be a great blog post!
