When it’s April in Texas, that means it is festival time and the bluebonnets are blooming. This weekend alone, there’s the Main Street Art Festival in downtown Fort Worth, there’s a Taco Festival in Deep Ellum, it’s Record Store Day and lots of area shops have free stuff happening, the Bath House at White Rock Lake has the Art Mart, there’s a Guitar Show at Market Hall and best of all, the Bluebonnet Festival in Ennis. I’ve been to all of these one time or another except the Taco Festival, this is the first year for it. A few years back when we went to the Ennis Bluebonnet Festival, it was one of those perfect years for blooms, plenty of warmth, sun and rain. I shot a lot of fabulous photos and I’m sharing some those with you now. Get out and have some fun this weekend. Enjoy.
I’ve been busy, busy, busy for the last couple of weeks but I thought I should stop what I was doing and wish everyone a happy holiday season. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.
UPDATE: Guitars have been moved to my shop. You know you want one. Click here.
There are four cool cats raising a ruckus over in my Etsy shop. Please someone buy one and give it a new home. I can hardly get any sleep with all their wailing and all the other critters in the shop are complaining. Thanks.
Here’s a couple of rockin’ cool cats I drew, sewed and stuffed recently. They’re over in my Etsy shop right now. I have several more to add in the coming days. Everybody needs a cool cat. Go get yours, don’t be the last on your block to rock.
My husband Mike‘s band The Big Guns is playing this Saturday night in Dallas at Lee Harvey’s, our favorite dive bar. Always a fun time especially when the roller derby girls are having their after bout party as they are this Saturday night. If you live in Dallas or are lucky enough to be visiting, do drop by. You won’t be sorry. Here’s a fun little video of The Big Guns from a few years back for your enjoyment.
You may remember a few months ago I posted a story about my guitar playing husband’s new blog of his new music? Sure you do. Well, Saturday night he took it to the stage and rocked the house. Really he did. Here’s a couple of video proofs of said rocking. Watch them both, you know you want to. I’ll let you know ahead of time when he hits the stage again.
Yes, spring has definitely arrived in North Texas. Most of Dallas is green and blooming. Most of Dallas’ people are sneezing. At least I am, along with coughing and just feeling bad in general. I think I’ve been suffering from a delightful mix of allergies and cold germs. Not fun at all.
Along with the greening and budding comes spring storms to our area. We’ve had straight line winds that took out our electricity for a few days last weekend to last night’s hailstorm. Never a dull moment between the sneezes.
But along with the storms and sneezes comes the spring art festivals and my favorite one is this weekend in downtown Fort Worth: The MAIN ST. Fort Worth Arts Festival This festival always has the best selection of artists displaying and selling their fabulous work along with wonderful music and tasty food.
This year’s musical lineup is as good as it gets for me, tomorrow night, Saturday, April 16, Rosanne Cash is performing with her band at 9pm on the Sundance Square Stage. As a longtime fan who has only seen her once in concert, I can assure you that I will be front and center for this show. Maybe I’ll see you there.
I know I’ve mentioned this before, but in case you’ve forgotten, Mike, my husband is a fabulous guitar player. He also writes great songs and records them at our house in his studio. He has finally decided to start a blog to share his music with everyone. Me and the furry kids will no longer be the only ones to hear his great music. The link to his blog is over there in my blog roll, but to make it easy for you, click here. Keep your eye on his blog for more rocking hits to be posted. And check the credits on the songs already posted, you’ll find me listed as background vocals on one.
If you live in Dallas or will be lucky enough to be here this weekend, stop by the White Rock Local Market.
These too cool cats along with lots more of my critter creations will be with me at the LAST MARKET OF THE SEASON.
Saturday, December 11, 8 am to 3 pm
Weather looks like it will be perfect for almost-last-minute holiday gift grabbing!
Hope to see you there.
