The Third Annual Cohoes Art Show

On the weekend of June7th and 8th, i will be taking part in the Third Annual Cohoes Art show. My Mom and i were part of the first year show, but last year i was just recovering from the stroke, and missed it. This year i am thrilled to be alive and still creating! So i am bringing my rosaries for display. The awesome thing about showing my rosaries at this show is, it is being held at an old church that i used to go to for mass as a child. The church has been purchased by a young couple who are rehabbing it and offering it for venues like art shows, concerts, meetings, weddings, etc. So, if you are in the neighborhood and can stop in to see the lovely art in this beautiful old church building, i've posted some information about the show below. I hope to see you there!
(My rosaries will be for sale at the show)

Thank you my friend! I will be sure to take pictures! I made a bunch of goodies last night-2 kinds of chocolate bark candy, chocolate dipped pretzels dipped in peanuts, and some shortbread cookies. I still need to go pick some roses and peonies to put up in the show space, and i have no clue what i am going to wear!!! Keep your fingers crossed all goes well! Love, mare
