Turn Park Art Space Offers Natural Beauty


The flowers of Turn Park Art Space are as lovely as some of  the sculptures and other artists' works that are found there.



The park, located in West Stockbridge, Massachusetts, is comprised of 16 acres of a former quarry.


Turn Park Art Space lives up to its mission which is "to inspire."


Who could not be inspired by breathtaking Queen Anne's Lace?


The park offers a natural environment that includes trees, water and, of course, flowers.




Works of contemporary architecture and sculpture add to the park's loveliness.





If interested, and you missed the first post on the Phoencia Flea Market that was held at Turn Park Art Space, go here.

Unique Flea Market


One of the best parts of life is being able to learn something new every day.
 
When I read in the newspaper there was going to be a Phoenicia Flea (market) in a park in the small New England town of West Stockbridge, it sounded intriguing.



 Such markets are billed as being made up of "makers and merchants: from the Catskills, Hudson Valley and beyond."

Their website notes they are "a celebration of community, culture, small business and local trade."



Location of the market was the Turn Park Art Space. It was another place we'd never been and was quite picturesque.

The park we saw, which was the location of the flea market, had some very unique sculptures as well as natural lake, pretty wildflowers,  and a 65-foot vertical drop.



We had very delicious, strong iced coffees from Irving Farm Coffee Roasters of New York.


Jason, shown below, made them for us.



Paul Lowe was a vender there, too. He is founder of the wildly popular Sweet Paul Magazine!

If you are unfamiliar with the magazine, check it out. Your life may never again be the same.



In another post, we will show you some of the flowers of Turn Park Art Space as well as an impressive sculpture of Don Quijote, so, if interested, stay tuned.

DO YOU ENJOY GOING TO DIFFERENT KINDS OF FLEA MARKETS?

Through The Eyes of a Child


During a visit from my granddaughter, who is no longer a toddler but not grown up  or in school yet, either, she showed a big interest in photography.

My cell phone takes great photos so I instructed her how to hold it steady and shoot.

Then I told her to practice taking some photos.

The first thing she photographed was her kitty sippy cup that I am always happy to fill with chocolate milk! 

Actually, it came out quite well as she held the camera very still.

Isn't it wonderful to see through the eyes of a child?

They know how important it is to keep on smiling!

Today, may your day be blessed and filled with smiles!

WHAT MAKES YOU SMILE?
