Slotin Folk Fest

Last weekend Pog and I drove to Atlanta, GA to visit Folk Fest and
 to meet Lurena Williamson of Tattered Moon! 

I have followed her blog and have long admired her dolls so it was 
a real pleasure to meet her and see the work in person. 
Check out her blog at

This made the third time we have been to Folk Fest. 
The first time we went, there were several art cars in the parking lot. 
Pog didn’t think he would ever get into the show because
 I was running around looking at the cars! 
When we did go into the arena where the show is held, I was blown away by the work.
 It is a total assault on the senses of color and freedom of expression. 
I don’t think I have been the same since then 
and felt so much happiness even on this third visit of ours. 
Sadly there were no art cars this year but the work was still awesome. 
I have long had an interest in outsider and folk art so it is a real treat to be able to see so many artists in one venue. 

I loved the red, white and blue rooster.

Red Carpets!

SD Meadows. One of my favorites.

This was Pog's favorite of the show.

Still weaving away on runners, mug rugs and dishtowels. 
I’ve got lots of hemming to do then I will show you what I have been working on. 
I have been slow getting things done and I am going to blame it on the heat.
 Dog days at the end of summer. 
How I long for my favorite season of Fall!
The older I get the less I can tolerate heat and humidity. 
Thankfully our mountains do not suffer from heat the way other areas do.
 Have a good weekend and stay cool!  


  1. I dig that last photo too. What a cool dude... A lots of unusual arts.

    I've been so preoccupied with this and that that I haven't even had the desire to blog lately. It must be all the rain we've had lately. I'm just so tired at the end of the day.
    I hope that you're having a great weekend.

  2. The older I get, the less I can tolerate the cold!
    Looks like a great show to attend.
    Hugs :)

  3. What a wonderful show. I agree with Pog, that's a show stopper.
