Little Falls Craft Show

This weekend was the Little Falls Craft Show.  I tend to look at it kind of like the State Fair.  You can go every other year and still see the same things.  I hadn't been there for a couple of years and didn't know if I'd actually make it this year until I got an email from my aunt saying that she wanted to meet me there, along with my mom and my sister.

So Saturday morning we met Aunt Jo in town and spend 5 glorious hours in the sun, in the shade, in the wind, in the heat, in the crowds, in the the port-a-potties.  When asked what I was looking for, I said  "I don't know what I need until I see it".  I didn't go looking for anything.  It was mainly to just enjoy the weekend and the company.

And then I saw it. 

I've wanted a picture of The Last Supper for many years now.  I've looked in different religious stores and online but nothing really had ever spoken to me.  I wanted to find something like my mom and cousin have and my grandma had.  A 3D plaque made of plaster; 18" by 12".  Nothing huge that screams CATHOLIC LIVES HERE!  My aunt has a huge puzzle that she glued and framed beautifully but it fits the wall where it hangs.

And then I saw it.

It was a gorgeous decoupage of different papers surrounded by a 3D matte.  It has an antique looking frame with a sage colored background.  I'm ecstatic that I found the perfect picture of The Last Supper that fits my kitchen.  Now I'm excited to do some other cosmetic changes in my kitchen/ living room too.

If you like what you see, Barbara Groth is the artist.  She had many more religious pieces including gorgeous manger scenes for Christmas.  Her company is called Paper Sampler.  She is based out of Detroit Lakes.  If you want her address or phone number, let me know.  I just don't feel comfortable giving it out over my blog.
