Visiting Kim Rempel at the HandMade Market

 Kim and her gorgeous paintings 
(Head out tomorrow and grab some for your Mom
or yourself)
Steven and I took a beautiful drive today to
St. David's near Niagara-On-The-Lake
where Kim Rempel was selling
her beautiful paintings in the St. David's
HandMade Market at the Ravine Winery.
Kim with me at her booth 
(those baskets are full of superb paintings)
The location was superb, and the weather just
right -- cool and sunny, although the wind must
have been a challenge for some of the outside
stalls.  I've admired Kim's work since I first
saw it on line, and her posts too.  She is a
pro through and through, and the most
generous of bloggers, taking us on holiday
with her to France a while ago and on her ski trip to
 Vermont in the winter.  Plus she is always painting.

Kim and her sister Sheri who was 
helping her at the market.  What
fun they are!

Here's to another great day on Mother's Day
tomorrow Kim. 

Our other reason for the trip.  We've been hunting
for views of fruit blossoms.  Kim tipped me off
to where they were (right near the Vineyard), and
so after visiting her we drove through miles and
miles of paradise.  Thank you Kim!!!

Have a very happy Mother's Day

What a great outing--perfect in every way.
Spring-blossoming trees, imho, are one of the most beautiful, spirit-filling things on this old, ever-renewed Earth.

Hi Laura,

You are so right. It was beautiful beyond imagining. And Kim is the kind of person you would love to meet. Then we stopped by another wonderful blog artist's house, Marcia LaBelle. It was a lovely day. I hope you are having a great one. I am so glad you are posting again. Every post inspires me. I love your work!

Hi Kim,

I'm really glad I came yesterday. I hope you did well today despite the weather. Your art is magnificent Kim. I really want to see your larger work too. You are just astoundingly good. It made me so happy to see your work. The blossoms were sooo beautiful too. Thank you for everything. Happy Mother's Day.
