It's Saturday and one day closer to spring

The real thing, where trees are budding, daffodils and tulips are blooming, not peeking chilled through a layer of snow.

I can now cheerfully segway to the beginning of summer and the start of the outdoor art fairs in the Chicagoland area. No, I am not wishing my life away, since the anticipation is a unique delight in it's own right.

My protagonist is an artist. I have no such talents, but I do love and appreciate the effort and talent it takes to start with a blank canvas and create...Come to to think of it, it is not unlike a blank page that will be filled with words...hmmmm, I do see similarities.

If you see an art theme here, do not despair, next week I'll write about the creation of my website, but I digress, back to art.

If you find yourself in my neck of the woods this summer, I can recommend the Evanston, The Glen , Oak Brook and my all time favorite the Highland Park fair. If anyone is interested, I will post the dates of the events, once they are available.

I do tend to stay in the suburban area, since the Chicago fairs have become so crowded, it is difficult to really see anything, much less chat with the artist.

Take care,

I wish I had room to buy more at art fairs. I'm still engaged in my Spring Cleaning battle, which will most likely go on through Summer and Fall and Winter. You get the picture.
