Simple Goods Show
This weekend I had the fun opportunity to accompany friend Kathy of Sugarbucket Antiques to participate in the wonderful Simple Goods Antique and Folk Art show in Ohio. It was a great to be amongst such a wonderful group of artists and designers and discriminating collectors of the primitive segment of the antique market. Kathy's booth was beautiful showing as always her wonderful flare at placing just the right objects together to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. She is known also for talented 'make-dos and hand-dids'....objects transfored into other uses in the spirit of early American life when one made do with what they had, made it over or did without. The result is an overflowing stream of creativity and ingenuity. Not only were all the original objects ,and those that they have inspired in this modern day, useful but they are also uncannily beautiful in their simplicity. Some of my handspun yarns, carded and blended natural wool batts and needle felted sheep and pincushions nestled among her lovely pieces and were well received by the crowd. Now it's back to the spinning wheel and carder. Time to work! Check Kathy out at www.sugarbucketantique.com .
