Another wonderful thing about Hartville is the farmer's market. Beautiful locally grown food from area farmers and Amish families. I couldn't resist taking some pics of the great produce.
We had a fun morning, exploring the market, eating breakfast at the Hartville Kitchen, but the girls got a little bored and it was time to go. When Bella made this face I thought she had reached her looking at "old junk" tolerance level! So we headed for home.
At the end of the day, most all the stuff was sold, what was left over was given away and Jeff brought home two nearly new tires (for my Vue) and a lawn mower. Both things we needed and were about to buy. So it worked out so well. We basically traded our purged stuff for things that we really needed and still came out with some cash! That is a new form of recycling!
We also went through and organized 6 boxes of family pictures and memoribilia that I have been trying to get to for years (maybe decades!) This girl should have a show on HGTV!
We have a huge pile of stuff to get rid of so we decided on a trip to the Hartville Flea Market on Thursday to sell it. Yipeeee an adventure - I just have to hold back from buying anything. Oh temptation!
Now the energy is all stirred up and junk has been cleared I know we are ready to sell this house and get on the road to Nashville!
Thanks Elisha for your guidance and amazing skill. You are the queen!

These great bags are so colorful, bright and really well made. Inside they have cool fabrics and lots of pockets. They are Sassy Sacks made by artist Cyndy Naylor.
Modern Ancient Glass artist Kelly Crosser-Alge makes fabulous fused glass jewelry. I love this bracelet! The colors are so bright - and you know I love bright colors!
Unique, powerful and soulful! This art work by Jenn Cole is one of a kind. It is a cross between painting and collage with amazing images and uber cool paint techniques. Her art was a stand-out at the show for me - true creative expression. Awesome!
The next group of pics shows some cool art made from recycled components. It was so wonderful to see so much "green art" this year.
Glass and Garden art by Gordon and Peggy Black. Cool fish!! They had one in orange too. I could hardly resist buying this!
Very cool yard art made from old dishes, plates, cups and other unique items. What a great way of recycling! These eclectic pieces are made by Shabby Joe Glass Art from Michigan. Inspired!
This art was so unique - all made from recycled plastic. The colors were so bright and varied - who knew plastic came in so many colors. Phil's Art is bright, fresh and clever!
Modern metal sculptural yard art! Wow! Not only do Hammer Song Farms sell their art they also teach sculpture workshops. I could see one of these great pieces in my new backyard in Nashville. (If I had my new house yet!)
What a terrific way to start a mid summer Sunday morning with beautiful art and tons of creative inspiration.
She also designs these fantastic fabrics! The colors and patterns are so whimsical and fresh - I love them! I took my granddaughters to pick out some fabric and my daughter and I are making them dresses.
As we wait for the house to sell I am keeping busy enjoying my relationship, having adventures, making art, getting healthy and enjoying living a creative life. I am loving it! There is so much to do, the time just flies by. At the top of the blog I have made art collages of some of my interests and I will explain them as I go along. This is my new life . . . . for the moment. . . . it is ever changing. . . . just getting better and better! Life is good!
