Huge thanks to everyone who came out this weekend for the
HINSDALE FINE ARTS FESTIVAL. We had surprisingly great weather both days,
met quite a few fun people and a LOT of pots & mugs found their way off to new homes.
Thanks again!!!

So yesterday turned out to be so much better than expected. Blue skies… and none of the rain predicted. A beautiful surprise for Day One of the SCHAUMBURG PRAIRIE ARTS FESTIVAL. Not a bad view from the back of my tent.

However… if you’re looking for me in my “usual” spot… I’m not there!!! They basically closed the grassy park Friday and moved all of us artists onto the non-squishy pavement. So c’mon down to parking lot for more pottery today from 10:00am-5:00pm.
