Abe Lincoln

“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich...strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift...lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln

Friday October 9, 2009

Welcome !  It is Friday and it is raining! :0(  I will be in Ann Arbor this evening for the second ArtWalk.  Hope the rain ends soon, and we have a lot of visitors.  I will be in Kerrytown, but the ArtWalk covers a large area of Ann Arbor.  Come out visit the art galleries, shops, start some Holiday shopping, and enjoy some good food.

On Friday I feature two the artisans from the Sunday Artisan Market.  Today I would love for you to meet Carol Fletcher, who is a great photographer, and president of our wonderful market.  Under Carols watchful eyes the market has doubled in the last couple of years.  Carol takes pictures of nature, some up close, and some are the big picture.  A lot are matted and framed, take one home and add something wonderful to your home.  Other are in greeting cards, journals and books.  Her pictures are from Michigan and the world.  She can tell you a story about each and every picture she has.  What a treat!  Carol is working on a web site and blog at this time, soon the world will find out what a wonderful person she is.

The next artist I would love for you to meet is Dawn Foerg, a fused glass and slumped glass artists.  The colors in her work are just lovely to look at and used.  Her display is always a treat to look at, and the sun coming through her art work looks like a big stain glass window.  If you love color stop at her booth, and your breath will be taken away.  Down does not have a web site at this time, but one should be coming soon!

I will be back on Monday to feature two more Artist from the Old Farmhouse Gathering.  If you have time please check out the new cooking blog they have.  Not only do the make wonderful items, then can cook as well!
