saturday we stopped by the cottonwood art festival at cottonwood park. it's a pretty park, which is mostly why i like to go. and because they have kettle corn for sale during the festival, and because there are some yard sculptures that are kind of steam-punk-like. it always seems to draw a crowd no matter what the weather, and it's free, so we go look around for a bit. most of the stuff isn't our style, but there are a handful of artists that draw me in for a few minutes, and i can appreciate the craft(s) anyway. there is one man there who makes the most beautiful rocking chairs. i wish i could buy one.
