Double Decker Arts Festival

Last year was our first time at Double Decker Arts Festival in Oxford, and we have vowed to go every year from now on.

Last year I went on & on about how great Stephanie Dwyer‘s bottle trees are (ooooh this bottle tree arbor/arch too!!) – we actually got to the festival pretty late in the day and she had sold out of just about everything!  Isn’t that great!?  

She’s making these metal magnets now too, one for Shug and one for the baby (thank you!!):

She’s going to be coming to Alabama soon and we’re going to get together for a girl-lunch at one of Frank Stitt’s places.  Can’t wait!  
Oh, and you know how Felder Rushing is one of my favorite people?  He’s got one of her bottle trees in his yard now.  The BB King Museum has one of her bottle trees, and sells them in the museum shop, too!  All her retailers are listed here.
The other thing we picked up at the festival was this sweet cheese ball server from Pace Pottery:
My friend Amy from North Mississippi is a collector of Jennifer Pace Wilson’s pottery so I couldn’t wait to see everything Jennifer brought to Double Decker…and when I got there, she literally was also almost sold out of everything, too!  It was a good thing I was able to grab this – I *love* it!  Oh, and the clay she uses is dug from a creek in Faulkner’s Woods in Oxford.  Nice.
Already looking forward to next year!
