The days are slipping away until the big country-art event, Meander-October 5th, 6th and 7th, takes place in the RedBarn. I’ve heard from many folks who are looking forward to attending. Spare moments this week, in the blue house next to the RedBarn, will be spent creating goods for the little ‘card shop’ that is set up each year underneath the stairway inside the barn.
Meander shoppers come from all corners of this region. By the time they have driven into rural Minnesota, Big Stone County, found our little township road, parked and are walking up the gravel driveway toward the RedBarn, they have left their cares behind. ‘Happy’ is the word of the day! The card designs that I use for my own friends and family seem to disappear fast. Those with a personal touch. This week I will be bringing out my personal collection and will share a new one each day.
My country neighbor often jokes,”I’m only good for two things; fishin’ or wishin’ I was fishin’.”
