Thank You Slotin Folk Fest !..............................

What an amazing weekend 
at the
 21st annual
 Slotin Folk Fest
Atlanta, GA
Thank you to all that made it an incredible weekend for us!
Yep, these are my little "jug heads"
They had a blast at the show being inspired by all the art and socializing with wonderful people.
My hubby was along too(apparently camera shy) and was a big help! I couldn't do the shows without him.
I met so many wonderful artist, collectors and fair folk!
I was amazed and honored to be amongst so many talented and fabulous artist
 from all over the United States. 
I got to meet Louise Grenell in person at the show. She made the journey with her hubby to take in all the folk art. I have followed her blog and it was great to meet her in person. Check out her talents at www.shuttlehookandneedle.blogspot.com
I also got to meet the super talented Carol Roll  www.nostalgicfolkart.blogspot.com
 She is a sweetheart and I have admired her whimsical folk art sculptures on Etsy but to see the real thing in person did not disappoint! if you visit her link, you can see lots of great pictures from the show. Another artist with bigger than life amazing mixed media works is Andy Saczynski. His wife took some great pics at the show.
