Artists and lovers of plants can come up with amazing floral arrangements! Here is one from the ART IN BLOOM at MAC Center for the Arts! Still going on today!http://blog.woodenhorsearts.com
If you missed Thursday and Friday for Art in Bloom at the MAC Center for the Arts in Newport, Vt., You have one more day to experience this very lovely show of Floral Arrangements and paintings. Kudos to the members of the Four Seasons Garden Club for their unusual, interesting and beautiful arrays of flower arrangements to fit with the ART of the members of the MAC.
I am pleased to be a member of the Garden Club and share with you my arrangement of “Farm Garden Flowers in an Old Oaken Bucket” . My Zelma doll is a part of the display (as a farm girl gathering flowers). My choice of paintings was “Children and Dog” David Whitehill’s oil on canvas of a farm with the children and their dog.
Don’t miss this event (one more day) and please feel free to comment on ART IN BLOOM!http://blog.woodenhorsearts.com
Here’s one: ” Hooray! My “Ancient Ornament” hooked rug is finished today…26 days from start to finish. It is 27 x 36 inches and was a real delight to design and hook. Here’s a peek…it is shown on my blog today!”
“.Happy Hooking!” Sunnie Thanks Sunnie!!http://blog.woodenhorsearts.com

My family and I have been enjoying this book, pictures and music! It really is for “every age”! The tune is sticking in my head and the pictures of Noah and all his animals are such fun. Jerry Johnson has a way with rhymes, Adrien “Yellow” had a way with paints and colors and Jon Gailmor has a way with the “happiest” music! This book and its CD are just about the best purchase I have made. Here’s the cover of “Noah’s Song”. More: http://www.vtpoet.comhttp://blog.woodenhorsearts.com
