Sounds like you had a good weekend. We have an iron man that sets up at one of our festivals each year with his iron work. He is from Fordyce Arkansas and has some of the neatest pieces. I just love your blog and pictures from your shop. Good luck ! Jan

It all looks and sounds so wonderful! I saw a neat idea here in Utah at a huge place that does miles of gardens. They took 3 of the very same garden arches and put them all touching each other, it was so impressive. So when you walk through its just so much more great than walking through one arch...hey, you may sell three to one person! I'm so excited its spring too!
