Hey y’all!  There was a new festival in town this weekend.  We have a great riverfront here in Jeffersonville with a wonderful view of downtown Louisville.  It’s been a few years since our long-standing Steamboat Days Festival fell apart and with that with the only arts and crafts festival we had.  One of the shop owners in downtown decided on her own to start “River Walk Art-Tiques Show” on Riverside Drive this year.  There was a barbeque booth set up for some good eats and and music on the RiverStage.

The show was very small with maybe 10 or s booths, but the Mayor has already talked to the organizer and has committed the City to support the festival in upcoming years.  Hopefully it will get bigger and better each year.   I called my sister this morning and talked her into going with me, since we both need to get out in the sunshine and walk a little.

My favorite booth of them all was the antique store’s booth which belonged to the organizer.  It was the first booth going down the street and the first thing I saw . . . . I bought!

and it still works with only a few keys sticking.

Now the case shows lots of wear and abuse, but after looking it over I know I can do some minor repair work and it will be good as old!  However, I LOVE the way it looks and this is what made me decide to buy this particular typewriter over another model.

I also found some folding rulers and locks.  Can you guess what these will be used for?

The wrist is starting to feel better and now I find that I’m almost using  the thumb on the left hand when I type.  It’s no longer a peck and find type of thing.  Maybe, just Maybe, I’ll find myself in the studio this week.  However, I’m not holding my breath and neither should you.  I have been working on some ideas though and can’t wait to get at it with both hands . . . because for some of those, it’s going to take two!

Well, that my highlights of the weekend. . .  unless you want to see my laundry!  I hope you have fabulous day and take advantage of the adventures that come your way . . . life is too damn short as it is!
