This weekend we went to the Fall Craft Festival at the Hermitage, it was such a beautiful day to be out! The Hermitage was the home of our 7th president, Andrew Jackson. We didn’t tour the home, this time just went to the festival. There were lots of great artists there, and live music from the 70’s to listen to as you strolled through the festival. I even got to play a violin!! Apparently I am pretty good because the lady was impressed that it was my first time playing one.
Aren’t these mugs cool? Perfect for coffee! This person’s ceramics were all in these earth tones.
These paintings were amazing! This artist came from Romania. I really loved the emotion of the one closest to us. What do you think?
This artist’s take on the Nashville skyline. Love this one!
This is a table of old toys that kids could really borrow and play with. I love the rings with the ribbons. It is called graces. We this game when we were kids – they ended up a tree.
This shop had some great funky jewelry.
This one is for my sister! She loves the brass section!
They had ceramic artists, textile artists, sculptures of wood, makers of leather goods, painters, people that did ink sketches, photographers, etc.
These sculptures were really beautiful!. The wood is a smooth as silk. Can you imagine how much time went into these? My mom wanted the angel. 🙂
Here is a booth with great textile art. We had to drag mom out of here.
