But it has stopped raining for now as we prepare for Day Two

By lunch time the clouds had moved out and we had a beautiful afternoon in Burlington Park. Hoping for more of the same tomorrow… so be sure to stop by and say “Hi” in Booth #102. It’s the Hinsdale Fine Arts Festival… rain or shine! … fingers crossed for shine!!!

Okay, so Day One of the Hinsdale Fine Arts Festival was a bit on the soggy side. Rain all morning to dampen everyone’s spirits. Luckily, pottery only looks better when it’s wet, right?! And when the clouds moved out, the afternoon was much better!

A huge THANK YOU this morning for everyone who came out this weekend to the Schaumburg Prairie Arts Festival in the blazing sun & heat. It was so good to see everyone and a great way to kick-off my summer art fair schedule. We all made it through… even my flowers that I had to water like every 30 minutes to keep them from frying in the sun!!!

Not a bad location… and a great place for this weekend’s art fair
with white tents along the pond’s edge at the Schaumburg Prairie Arts Festival.
It’s Day Two and I’m looking forward to another beautiful day…
and sending a lot of pots off to their new homes!

C’mon by… we’re here from 10:00am-5:00pm today
at the Robert O. Atcher Municipal Center in Schaumburg, Illinois.
