Yard Sales, Colorful Houses
The Saturday before Memorial Day there is a several block yard sale in Fresno.. We were reminded and went, arriving about 8 AM.. It started at 6, or at least that is the time that some of my friends arrived and bought up all the great items. I know there are no garage sale goodies in these photos. Because I got lost looking at all the wonderful cottage looking houses. What amazing colors, and the roses are out of this world.
Doesn't this look like the perfect place to sit and relax. Cool and beautiful. You would never know that hundreds of people are walking by with strollers, dragging baskets, crying kids and total bedlam. I love the designs of these homes, so very different from up in our mountains, just 30 miles away.
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
