powderhorn park arts festival


We had the best day yesterday! I have a new partner for arts festival-ing (My own new word. hee hee.) Her name in Noni. Sometimes known as Nonifolani. We saw this great artist. Her name is Amy and she makes these crazy people. She calls them: Peepwool. You can see all of her lovely madness on line at I want all of them. She also makes really rockin' hats.
Besides the peepwool gal, we saw lots of great art. It is such a wonderful, relaxed atmosphere. No one is in a hurry. Everyone is just sort of hangin'out lookin' at cool stuff. Noni and I ask lots of questions. What do you like? Why? What do you think that the artist was trying to say? I don't know either - let's ask. It is totally fun. She is cut from exactly the same cloth that I am. We laugh and dawdle and drink loads of lemonade.
Daddyman took Via to see the new Harry Potter movie. They've read all of the books together. Then they both re-read them all, alone. Quietly. In their own little corner of the house. Where no one can find them if we need them. I don't know how they do it. It's a little annoying.
Nora and I want to make our own peepwool. We are going to go to the Salvation Army and Goodwill to find some old wool sweaters right now. See you soon.
PS. Someone let Daddyman and Via know where we are when they emerge from their reading shells.

tee hee. I love the Harry Potter hermits. I'm one of those. But I haven't even seen the movie yet. Book? yes, read it in two days. I may have to stomp my feet and cry soon if I don't get to see the movie! The art fair thingy sounds like lots of fun. The peepwool are hilarious. I am so excited to have those mother-daughter moments with Stella some day. You two sound like such buddies. XOXO
