Fearrington's 15th Annual Folk Art Show in Pittsboro NC

As I was researching things to do this past weekend I came across Fearrington's 15th Annual Folk Art Show in Pittsboro NC.  It was not all that far away so Cindy and I took off on the adventure.  Here is how they describe the show....

"Our annual Folk Art Show features the work of self-taught artists who are deeply influenced by the spirit of folk art, naïve art, primitivism and outsider art. You’ll see whimsical paintings, fantastical robots, sculptures, pottery and more. Fearrington has garnered a reputation for bringing together an eclectic group of outsider artists who represent some of the most interesting work to be found in the outsider art world. We hope you’ll experience it for yourself! All sales proceeds benefit the artists directly; Fearrington takes no commission from the artists, nor does Fearrington charge a booth fee to the artists selected for the show. Entry is $5 at the door."

The photos below are from the outside of the show.  We did not go into the actual event.  We had enough to enjoy outside:-)















The bird sculpture above was my favorite.  So much detail and he looks happy.

This owl was painted on an artists truck.

Brodie liked the idea of me being the person your dog thinks you are.  I will have to make it a quote of the day:-)
Get out and explore.  I suggest you try a local event this weekend.  
Enjoy Your World

  2. There are so many things in NC that I have not seen or done and I have been here in the area since '91'. I will be posting things to do every Wednesday on this blog for the upcoming weekend. I should get it out by the end of today. Thanks for stopping by my blog:-)

A Visti to Rye Bar and Southern Kitchen in Raleigh NC

It has been a while since I have visited a new restaurant.  I did a google search and came up with Rye Bar and Southern Kitchen in Raleigh NC.  Sounded wonderful so I called Cindy and off we went on a restaurant adventure.  Here is a quote from their website.... "A refined take on traditional Southern cuisine. That's the essence of Rye Bar & Southern Kitchen, our onsite restaurant in the heart of Raleigh's vibrant downtown. Executive Chef Michael Rigot's seasonal menus feature the freshest, healthiest produce and meats, all from local North Carolina farms. A main dining room, private dining room, and outdoor patio provide an abundance of seating options. Craft beers, uncommon cocktails, and premium wines head the liquid refreshment line-up."
The restaurant itself is located in downtown Raleigh in Raleigh Marriott City Center. The Bar was lovely.  The night we were there it was packed.  Lively place to be. They brought this lovely platter to our table, they call i…

Winkler Bakery in Old Salem NC

WINKLER BAKERY521 SOUTH MAIN STREETConstructed 1800, restored 1968
One place Gale and I knew we had to visit was the bakery in Old Salem.  I have enjoyed the Moravian cookies over the years but everyone has told me I had to try the sugar cake.
Look at all the temptations....Yummy:-)


A bit of history....






The sugar cake was amazing.  We took it back to our room and enjoyed the yummy sweetness in front of the beautiful fireplace in our room.  We also shared a bottle of local wine.  What a lovely day:-)
Happy Travels Everyone! KathieyV:-)

Hiking The New Hope Overlook

I signed up for another Meetup group hike.  I never know what I am going to see on these hikes, I am always excited for the new adventure.  I grabbed my camera and headed toward Jordan Lake.  I will be quoting a site I signed up for AllTrails.com.  It's free.  If you are at all interested in area hiking trails you should check out the site.

"New Hope Overlook Blue Route is a 2.8 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Moncure, North Carolina that features a lake and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash." AllTrails.com
Dogs are allowed on the trail. I did not take Brodie. The hikes are at a fast clip with this group so it may be difficult to drag him; literally along. Brodie and I go on 3-mile walks in our neighborhood. After about 3 miles he keeps looking at me as if to say "can we go home now?"  Ann was our fearless leade…
