A good time as had by all in good old Kentucky… My friends Mary and Nicola were nice enough to brave the 6 hour ride with me and take pictures so I could be a part of an artist market at Kijsa Houseman’s studio in Paducah, Kentucky. They were great travel buddies too and we had a blast.
We had a great time at Kari and Kijsa’s show. It was so amazing to be able to bring things I made with my own hands and have people shop them. Of course we had the warmest hosts ever, and Kijsa’s studio is amazing.
I can’t get over how these girls are amazing! So warm,friendly and just plain creatively amazing. I was inspired just walking in the door.
Kijsa is an amazing artist and with KariAnne, she is so creative, you can’t help but fall in love.
It was a fun show and I met some fabulous people. And of course we also had some time to relax and be silly after the market.
Checked back in with the kids. Even though it was a nice break, I missed them a ton.
We visited a lovely little tea house. and had an amazing afternoon sipping tea and talking about the market.
They have this amazing stretch of flood wall murals by a really talented artist named Robert Dafford. The detail and color were amazing. If you go to Paducah, you have to go and see them. They are just beautiful.
They stretched on for about a half mile. They were so life-like we were inspired (though we did get close, we made sure we didn’t actually touch them as to disturb the pain or add wear and tear.).
And we got a little silly.
Shark! Everybody out of the water!
Bon voyage! It was kind of fun to play around by them even though we are grown adults.
Thank goodness there’s no fire! Ha ha, this brought me back to my glory days!
It’s a lovely day to skate! My friend, Mary had fun pretending.
AAAAAAHHHHHHHH! Ok, I know I am a total dork. Even though the artist market was so much fun, it was stressful to give it a try, and it felt like so much fun to go out and play around and be silly.
One the last day we met Kijsa at a FABULOUS overstock store named Surplus City..Where we found things we didn’t even know we needed.
I think we bought a bit too much!
Thanks for coming along! And thank you to every one who participated in the party on Thursday! It was an amazing experience to be a part of the Artist market and be able to get such great experience!
