Many of you now by now that Marianne R. has moved from Atlanta, Georgia to Surfside Beach, SC which is about fifteen minutes away from me. We finally had a chance to get together Sunday. We took a little ride to the Art in the Park exhibit locally and then went to her house for a visit since it was so hot outside. It was nice to finally meet Abbey, her precious Shitzu and Gonzo, the most handsome parrot ever with a vocabulary of over 2,000 words. If you haven't seen photos of them, hop over to Marianne's page and check out her photos. I've got to tell you, we were sitting there talking and all of a sudden I heard "HELLO". I thought someone walked in the back door, like maybe her Mom and I turned to see. Well, I didn't let on, but it was Gonzo and I was surprised. It wasn't until Marianne answered him that I realized my mistake. I also have to add, no matter how cute Abbey looks in photos, she is ten times cuter in person. She's so excited to see company and is just a blur of energy.
Here are some photos of a few items I saw at the Art in the Park venue. Most vendors/artist do not want you to take photos of their work. I did manage to catch a few though.
This vendor had some very nice yard ornaments. I thought this assortment of birds was cute.
Bottle art was a popular item. Here we have a big bumble bee made from a blue bottle. Very clever.
I thought this wire sculpture was beautiful.
When we moved to Myrtle Beach I was looking for some metal art items like these for my walls. Now that I'm done decorating I find just what I was looking for.
My screen porch isn't quite big enough but I'd love a fountain. Most of these had a place for live plants in the stone work.
There were so many pretty things to look at, quite a bit of jewelry, some pottery pieces and tons of nice photos. I just didn't feel like being reprimanded for taking pictures and decided to just enjoy the views.
