June 15 : From Above -- A day in Blowing Rock

June 15 : from above in the mountains #fmsphotoaday #mountains
Taken from above in the mountains!

This past weekend, my friends and I made a trip to Blowing Rock for Art in the Park. For one Saturday each month, from May through October, the town of Blowing Rock hosts this event that showcases about 90 artists, featuring handcrafted jewelry, pottery, paintings, photography and more!

Have you ever seen such a cute little bunch of #hummingbirds? Made from acorns and leaves!! #ilovehandmade #crafts
Here is a hummingbird mobile I found.
The birds are made of pinecones and leaves, how clever is that?!

Can I have one of these for my little birdies please? #crafts #birdhouses #handmade
A whole array of decorative (and possibly functional?) birdhouses,
dressed up with everyday objects like doorknobs and old license plates.

#magnolia wall painting I acquired today. I love it!  #flowers
This is the painting I bought to dress up my plain white walls. It is a painting of magnolias,
for the magnolia trees that flank the sides of our house. I love it!

Beautiful day to be out and about! #blowingrock
At the end of the day, we drove to Moses Cone Memorial Park to take an evening stroll in the park. It was such a beautiful day with skies so blue, we couldn't have asked for better weather!

I hope you had a great weekend!


  1. Cool art pieces! I've never heard about this town before. It's good to learn about new things. Thanks!

  2. I've only been to Boone/Asheville once, but it's a gorgeous place and such a cute little artist's town! And can I just say, I've totally been slacking/lacking inspiration for the Photo A Day Challenge but I'm doing my best to keep up!

  3. That's awesome to climb a mountain! :D

  4. This actually sounds like a really fun event to attend :) I love the hummingbird mobile so much! Did you get one? It would be lovely to hang in our porch and to watch the birds fly a little in the wind :)


I appreciate you stopping by and reading my blog! Do leave me a note!
