A perfect September afternoon to head to Doylestown,
the county seat of beautiful Bucks County, PA, for its annual Arts Festival!
We took our time browsing through the canopies of 160 talented artisans.
Creativity was definitely in the air!
I met James Maloney, of One Man's Trash, who creates clever
Pennsylvania-proud pieces of art by recycling old license plates.
His new bride of just two weeks was there too. (Aaah...true love.)
Very cool succulents and cacti by Bucks County Flowers and Things.
Creative belt buckles artistically displayed in vintage sewing cabinet drawers.
Ron Andress, The Happy Potter
Brian Toseland's beautiful hand-blown glass pumpkins!
Sardine Upcycled Clothing
Nichols Pottery features a "Civil War Cup," which is hardier than the average mug.
With confederate soldiers often needing to melt down their tin cups for bullets,
North Carolina potters made mugs generous enough to hold stew, as well as coffee.
The festivities included the Bucks County Classic pro cycling event.
It was a thrill to see the high-speed racers streak by as they circled through the town!
Enthusiastic fans cheered them on with whistles and cow bells!
I encourage you to attend the next Doylestown Arts Festival
for a wonderful day of handcrafted treasure hunting!
Colleen and I had a most enjoyable time!
