This morning Bubba and Sugar and I took an early morning walk out in the fields. Dew was clinging to every strand of grass and spider web, reflecting blinding sunlight and silhouetting the doggies’ pert figures.Morning spiderwebs.
Well I knew it was pretty around here. But, get this: Good Morning America viewers just voted Sleeping Bear Dunes the Most Beautiful Place in America 2011. This is our backyard! My earlier post Urban Granddaughters Brave the Woods features one of the great views off the dunes, 6 miles from Fake Rock Farm.
Whoops. There goes the neighborhood….
Jerry and I collect tiles (and all things handpainted.) An old friend, Diane Lorick, visited recently with her old friend, Liz Wylegala. (Both are artists and instantly blended in with the Fake Rock Farm “leave no surface unadorned” credo. Liz found a new tile for the mudroom gallery at the Suttons Bay Art Festival children’s tent. Some budding creative entitled it HEN to help in interpreting the art. Love it!
JUST GREAT MOVIES is the Traverse City Film Festival‘s by-line and last week between feeding the goat, lamb, turkeys, chickens, cats, dogs and ducks, I WENT TO THE MOVIES! Michael Moore and friends started TCFF 7 years ago and rehabbed the old State Theater on Front St. into a state-of-the-art flagship for movie-going year around. Over 1300 volunteers staff the festival and serve as hosts to an incredible spectrum of film types from all over the world. This year Jerry and I sponsored a film from Cuba, HABANASTATION, and gorged on shorts, docs and fiction films galore. WHAT I WORE:A NEW PEPLUM JACKET. black and white pattern play with sparkley flower accent, shirt cuff pockets and a casual attitude. Lots of compliments. This style is currently at Magic Jacket in Fish Creek, Wisconsin and at Kaye Louise in Boca Raton, Florida. (If there are any left!)
