Art Fair is in the air

The Ann Arbor Art Fair is this week. Yes, out of what I could only really consider sheer pettiness, there are technically like four "different" "art fairs" going on at the same time. Whatever. Honestly, I've been going to Art Fair since I was a kid, and no one cares who was first or original. They're all artists, crafters, vendors, and activist booths located on the streets of downtown Ann Arbor, really, it doesn't matter what street. I like finding cool things, and I don't care where the booth is located. Art Fair is July 21-24 10am to 9am wed thru fri, and closing at 6pm on sat.

I look forward to going to Art Fair every July. As per the usual, I plan on buying an opal triplet ring from William Fisk, buying more jewelry than I really need, visiting the Peaceable Kingdom, visiting Middle Earth, visiting my favorite shoe store, and hoping it doesn't rain.

The first shot is a leaf of the Japanese Gum Tree.

The blueberries are ripe in the yard — I made some very tasty muffins yesterday. That Better Homes & Gardens cookbook from 1972 has an excellent, very simple recipe. I'd double the amount of blueberries, but otherwise it's delicious every time.

And the tigerlilies are blooming!

Hopefully your summer is ripe with beauty : )
