Yesterday we attended a wonderful annual event here in Smalltownland. It has only been around for a few years, but each year it grows just a little bit more. Named, "Art in the Alley" because it is held in a back alley that runs behind the historic town square.
Art in the Alley features local artisans and it now has many people coming from other small towns and farms that want to feature, and sell, their art work. People sell jewelry, pottery, hand spun yarn crafts, paintings, flowers, and woodworking crafts.
Here we have The Deerslayer and Toots standing by a piece of art made out of scrap metal. The gentlemen also had many yard items, fountains, and some jewelry made of scrap metal.
There were a few ladies in attendance that were selling their own hand spun wool and yarn. One of the ladies even raises her own sheep, shears them, and creates many things from their wool.
Live music was an all day event. While we were there it was piano music....both classical and some contemporary. During the day there was also Bluegrass musicians and some classical violin being played.
Toots had a blast drawing on the windows of the new pizza place. They furnished window markers for all of the children to come and make their own artwork.
