Belhaven Street Arts Festival

A few years ago artists and neighbors on Belhaven Street got together and organized the Belhaven Street Arts Festival.  This year they had to move it forward a week due to rain and that worked out just fine for me as I would have missed it had it happened on the planned date!  I walked one street over and was greeted by gaily displayed arts of all sorts…

hmmm, it might have been a bit soon after the Egg Bowl upset for me to be able to enjoy this…

I enjoyed meeting Liz Patterson, the sister of a friend, and perusing her jewelry, decorations and darling match boxes.  Love the name of her business – “It’s A Match”…

The soaps and aromatherapy products created by Leslie Puckett of Bear Creek Herbals would be a welcome find in any Christmas stocking…

I was so glad to meet a new neighbor on Pinehurst Place, Laurin Stennis of Laurin Stennis, Ink…

She creates hand-pressed linoleum block relief prints and they are beautiful…

(I did not see that glass of wine until I was editing these pictures and if I had noticed it I probably would have taken it with me!)

Well I had to jingle on home to Pinehurst Place to meet friends for dinner but I enjoyed every minute of this delightful neighborhood celebration!

So much talent in my neighborhood to tout!

I hope you are also traveling about enjoying such finery…
