" Wine is constant proof that God loves us and loves to see us happy." Benjamin Franklin
This weekend I will be a vendor at the Two Rivers Wine and Jazz Festival in Ottawa, Illinois. So excited. I'm expecting a great time, lots of people, sunny weather and of course, a chance to display some new art. Come see for yourself if you are curious.

Not only will you have the chance to see some wonderful art and taste some of the best wines but there will also be FOOD and JAZZ! The smooth sounds of Shirley King, daughter of blues legend B.B. King will headline this event. There will also be an Antiques Market on Main St. and the Garden and Botanical Arts vendors (that would be me) on Court St. While you're in Ottawa take a walk through Lincoln Douglas park, view the many amazing murals scattered throughout the downtown area, and stop for some of the best coffee and - my ultimate favorite sweet treat - a strawberry shortcake muffin at Jeremiah Joe Coffee. To die for! AND, if you really have a sweet tooth, be sure to stop by the Ottawa Merchant's booth for the most divine chocolate creations.
What a marvelous way to spend a summer weekend...wine, art, food, friends (old and new) Come stop by my booth to chat! See you this weekend.
