Focus on Life: The View From Where I Stand

Or actually, where I stood last week!

This week's photo prompt from Sally Russick is: From Where I Stand. I thought some of the pictures I took at last week's Arts and Crafts Sale at the Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum would fit nicely. We artists who were there to sell our goods were a little bit on the fringe of the event, which included a casting contest and other fly fishing activities (but strangely, no fishing that we could see!)

But the two day event was a joy to attend, the area is scenic, and the weather was almost perfect. 

I set up my jewelry display between a potter and a painter. Everyone was very nice. People who stopped by to look and occasionally to buy seemed to appreciate the nature themes of many of my pieces.

Some of the vendors,

Some of my wares.

Another view, you can see the next booth.

And some more jewelry!

Sally is having some problems with her web site, so you may not be able to visit for a while, but you can use the links below to see what others have done with this prompt. 


  1. Looks like you had a beautiful day! Hope it was a great show for you, you have some NICE pieces there..

  2. I am not brave enough for outdoor shows, looks like you have it down, and a beautiful day too!

  3. Out door craft sales are fun when the weather is nice... think the worst one I ever did the temp was 43 C or 109.4 in Saskatchewan in June... It broke the previous high by over 10 degrees no one bought anything after about 11 am! That looked like a lovely venue!

  4. No fishing at a fishing event...who would have your pics and thankfully it was a beautiful day....thanks for the pics and great post.


  5. What a wonderful spot for a show! Open, space for folks to move about and beautiful. I hope it was successful.

  6. Looks like you had a nice day. It sure looks pretty!

  7. Looks beautiful, I hope you had a great show!!

  8. Beti - it did look like gorgeous weather. I loved seeing the photos of your booth. Were those by chance paint rollers you had the bracelets on? If so, what a clever idea!

    1. Yep, Paint rollers indeed...found the idea on the internet, found the roller covers at a yard sale!

  9. Looks like it was a perfect day. Hope it was profitable as well.
