Art Prize is back!

Our booth changes with every show.  
When I suggested to Duane that we start taking the china cabinet with us,
the look on his face said it all.
It only took a little persuasion for him to 'see' the vision.
I don't think it's coming back into the house any time soon!
Plus we have the sweetest friends,
Denise and Don found this fabulous old, huge ironing board
at a garage sale and not only picked it up for us but
fixed it up to make it sturdy again!
Thanks again you two... you are awesome!

So where are we next?
Last year I told you about Art Prize in Grand Rapids,
here are some photos that I took to give you a small idea of 
the fabulousness of Art Prize...

this is made with paper pulp!

incredible mosaic detail for her skirt...

cowboy...nuff said ;)

needle felted by design students...

so what does any of this have to do with us?

The Old White House will be vendors at 
Art -2- Art
I am giddy,
I tell you!

We will be there every day from Oct.1-6
from 12pm until 10pm
don't have it all figured out on how we will pull that off,
but I think with all of the entertainment
that they have planned in the space we will be having so much fun
that the hours will fly by!
They are having a vaudeville/circus theme,
with live acts on every floor every day all day!
We will be on the second floor with
music and other entertainment every night from 6-10.


can you blame me?
The booth will be full of our natural laundry and cleaning provisions
plus new pumpkins, lots of new pumpkins!

(this one is sold but I have a few grain sacks left...)

I hope you can make it!
Art Prize is an amazing collection
of super talented artists from around the world,
all competing for the grand prize of 
get to vote for the winner!

I will tell you, it's a difficult task to find
just one winner though, 
the talent is over the top!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. I LOVE your pumpkins... I wish I could sell them at my shop... wholesale??

  2. Congratulations Theresa, i'll look for you during the show.

  3. Oh T your booth looks so inviting. I think the cabinet adds a great touch. George would be giving me the stink eye too. I've been needing him to move the shop around and he keeps rolling his eyes.
    Have a great show and love the pumpkins.
