Vasa Park Show


This afternoon is the opening of the Vasa Park show. It's the final show run by Sue Van Gerpen, who has been organizing this bunch of shows for years, along with Lord Hill Farm. And it's always been one of my best shows -- full of great stuff and wonderful people. I'm going to miss them all terribly.

I got just a small peep yesterday during set up. And there are some new artists here this week. One of them is my friend, Kim Groff Harrington who makes fun, whimsical garden art out of recycled cans, bottle caps and all kinds of old bits. That is one of her garden goddesses in the photo. She does shows around here, but never been in the Vasa Park show before, so it will be fun to see how well she does, being the newbie with cool new stuff. She is the most bright, bubbly, giggly gal I've known, and seems to glow with a special kind of radiance that is infectious. Who would't want to take a little piece of that home to their garden?

We're still hoping someone will want to buy the show and continue on. But even if that happens, it won't ever be the quite the same without Sue's smiling pixie face, the tireless little engine that could, inspiring our little group to always be a little better and a little kinder. So if you want to catch the last little bit of this fun run, hop on over and see the spring fling of gifts and garden stuff, antiques and easter fluff.
