Black Forest Craft Sale

COUNTRYSIDE
Watercolor 8x10

We live right on the edge of an area called Black Forest in Colorado Springs. Many of the homes are on acreage with barns and horses - a real country feeling.
Twice a year they host an Arts and Craft Show in their Community building.
My absolute favorite part of the show are the baked goods - breads, pies, cookies, jelly and honey from local bees. I have to get there early before they run out of cookies.
There are always lots of hand sewn items to select from - hot pads, aprons and quilts.
And of course silk flower arrangements and hand painted items. The whole show reminds me of a simpler time when handcrafted and baked goods were the norm in every home!
