GRAND RAPIDS & THE GRAND ART PRIZE

Over the weekend we took a cross-state jaunt over to Grand Rapids, Michigan to wander the streets of town in awe of the 17,000 pieces of art on display for their annual ARTPRIZE event. Artists from across the country submit their pieces of art for a huge event with a prize purse of $500,000 - the 1st prize take: $250,000. Amazing pieces of art surrounded us as we walked the streets amidst great people watching, cafes & restaurants.

We are planning to stay the night next time, both to see more of the town and the art.
A mere sampling of what we saw:








NEW FABRIC VENTURE:

Love to custom design vintage inspired fabrics.
Look for a whole line to be out by November 1.

VISUAL DESKTOP DIARY: Entry #3

Oh, my - fogive me followers. Time has flown since my last
VISUAL DESKTOP DIARY entry. Many travels, life changes
with a son off to college and much time spent in Leelanau  County
in northern Michigan enjoying my farm of cherry orchards & grapes.
Lovely days filled with family and friends. Always lots to do there on
victorian home that becomes neglected over a harsh winter.

I am now back to my other life & getting back to my Ode to June.
Not to delay, here is my desktop today filled with treasures found
in my scavenging this week. All this translates to lots of work.

I would love to see your desktop today - neat & organized, or a
mass of papers and interesting items. Graphics & designs in progress,
collages in the midst? General paperwork & mundane tasks of life?
It all makes for a wonderful log of daily life.

Enjoy & I hope to see a few attachments of your desk today.
