First, First Friday 2012
Can’t think of a memory of too many January first Fridays that have been 60 degrees… what beautiful weather we are having and it seems that there is more of the same tomorrow. It’s pretty easy to take a few freezing days when there are three or four 60 degree days in between. First Friday destination is always the West Bottoms… things are growing there, as well as the Crossroads Art District. It was surprising that there weren’t more people out this evening given this beautiful weather! The photo above was taken at our favorite photographer’s, Melinda Dennis, gallery area. She said she picked up the tumbleweeds, while coming back from vacation… her husband was sleeping!
Love how people can make simple things so beautiful. I’m not sure who’s area this was, but the sunshine was casting some perfect light.
My guess is that hand crafted furniture making is rare these days, but at Bennett Mullens Furniture Makers, their art was in full swing today. I’m sure he leaves a bit of his soul in every piece. (I don’t edit, but should I crop that light out?)
Happy First Friday everyone… it really is an event in Kansas City, not just something that I’ve conjured up for my blog!
