St. Louis Art Fair

This upcoming weekend is a big weekend. The second weekend in September is the St. Louis Art Fair, one of my favorite weekends.This is a weekend long event. On Friday night, I am heading to Clayton (the part of STL where is art fair is held) with some of my friends. There are street vendors selling their art, live music and entertainment, wine and food tents, and all around great people watching.
Saturday and Sunday during the day, they set up an art tent for children. Last year my kids made paper maiche vases, art books, clay pots, puppets, and a bouquet of tissue paper flowers. We won't make it to the art fair on Saturday because it is a little someone's 8th birthday and we have lots to do, but the plan is to spend Sunday afternoon at the fair with the kids.

This is the first year that I am actually on the hunt for some art. I hope I am not too distracted from all wine drinking and people watching I plan to do!!

On a side note, 2 more giveaways to check out.... Go to "its the world I know" and enter her give away for a Starbucks card and a fabulous fall candle.
Also check out "kitchen belleicious" and enter her give away for a chance to win a fabulous piece of jewelry. Good luck and if you win you must share your prize with me!!
