In the meantime, one of my sisters is here visiting and we went to an arts and craft festival in Black Mountain this weekend. Here are some of the pictures I took while there.
These gourds are really colorful! You can click on any picture to enlarge.
This bottle tree was sparkling in the brilliant sunshine.
Underneath the table below is some wonderful pots of herbs.
The picture below shows what appears to be a statue. But it was truly a live man. He stood absolutely still, until someone dropped some money in his bucket. Then he played his guitar for a minute.
My sister is still here, so I haven't had time to visit everyone. I promise I will drop by very soon!
