Art Journal~Page 2 STREET FAIR!!


On friday Dale and I headed to Fargo for the annual Street Fair. Arts and crafts ~Music and food! It was so fun!
Dale bought me cheese curds.......my once a year treat. I read where one serving is equivalent to eating 3 TBL of straight lard. That's not on my diet for sure! Lovely.

On Thursday morning I had watched HGTV's 'That's Clever' (as I always do!) and saw an artist from Fargo. Her name is Meg Spielman. I stopped at her booth set up outside her studio and bought some beautiful cards. We also ran into Kristin Rudrud who was in the movie, FARGO. She played the wife that was supposed to get kidnapped but she got killed instead :) Silly movie and we do NOT talk like that. That movie made fun of our accents......oh yeah, sure you betcha!

Next, we stopped outside an old, old bar named 'The Empire' because in their beer garden was some very cool music going on. A live little band and we decided to go in and listen for a bit, have a drink and rest. Once I got in there I was a little nervous. Lots of bikers, leather and unusual characters. LOL Then in walks my son! ha! It was so ironic! Of ALL the hundreds of people in downtown Fargo that day, we were lucky enough to catch up with him. I just never dreamt I'd see him in a bar like this, not to mention myself! :)

He was out with some friends and they decided to try strange new bars too! It was fun to visit for a bit.

We left and on our way out, we ran into a young gal trying to sell a boxer pup. 7 weeks old and my heart melted. I LOVE boxer pups!! I held him and he snuggled into my neck. I soooooo wanted to take him home, but didn't have $650.00 cash on me. That's a good thing :)

I had a fun day Saturday too and will start on that journal page later :)

beautiful journal piece, darla! it would make a lovely painting.

what a fun day you had! i've never heard of cheese curds before...how are they prepared?

i know what you mean. i hate watching movies where they have actors faking aussie accents. i think it must be one of the hardest accents to learn because the actors always do a terrible job of it....unless they're an aussie actor, of course! lol

LOL re. meeting your son in the bar surrounded by bikers.

i hate seeing puppies for sale...as i would dearly love another dog but it's just not the right time for us and it's torture for me to say no.

Love the new piece Darla!

How much fun! I also have no idea what a cheese curd is.

I hate watching something with an actor trying to do an Aussie accent. I agree, it just sounds like they are making fun of it.

My partner can't take me anywhere near puppies, I just get to upset that I can't take one home. I am looking forward to the day I own my own home :)

This will explain it better than I can :)
The ones at the fair are dipped in batter and deep fried. Very healthy. haha
