13 May 2009 Sweet Gravy Studio… my new piece of art… love it!
A few weekends ago we went to the Franklin Main Street Festival in historic downtown Franklin, Tennessee. It was a lovely time and most of the art & fine craft entries were a joy, although there were definitely a few cheesy entries (painted gourds?).
I need more art like I need a hole in the head. I used to own an art gallery and have been collecting art for a long time, plus have inherited pieces. I don’t have a huge collection but what I have, I love. Our house is really small, too, so there’s not a lot of wall space. But when I saw this piece, I had to have it. The gal who creates these is a hoot and signed mine for me on the back as well which was awfully sweet of her.
She lives in Georgia and has a website: http://www.sweetgravystudio.com/. Go visit it and tell her I sent you. Her piece (now mine) is the one with all the little birds (they look kind of like the twitter birds – maybe I was having twitter withdrawal at the time). It’s kind of hard to tell from the photo but there are little bits of vintage fabric embedded in the piece and a saying written around the side. You have to get your own piece to get your own saying…I’m just saying.
