Decatur Arts Festival
Hubbie and I just got home from enjoying the Decatur Arts Festival put on by the Decatur Arts Alliance. The weather was PERFECT, the crowds just right, and there were tons of new artists' works to enjoy. We purchased an interesting textural piece of a crow in a tree called "Sky High" by Lynn Reeder. It was hard to choose which piece to buy this year—there were so many we liked! But the one pictured above went home with us and joins our growing art collection.
We had lunch at Out of the Pan, which was delicious southern fare - BBQ chicken and southern veggies - yum! We walked all the booths twice - trying to decide. We stopped by the new Hola! Cantina to chill out with a frozen margarita. And then we hung out around the gazebo listening to Shawn Mullins. What a wonderful day!!!
To top it off, we're about to grill brats and a "pillow o' joy" - that'd be onions and peppers steamed in tin-foil on the grill - yum! What a nice way to celebrate this holiday weekend!
