One thing I love about going different places are the reference photos I take so that I have loads of material to choose from when I paint.  Of course, at Sassafras Farm this weekend there was lots and lots to photograph.  Here are some shots from the weekend.

The second day of the Pioneers & Primitives Retreat at Sassafras Farm with Suzanne McMinn was just as much fun as the first.  (See the first day here.)   The attendees spent the morning making bread…homemade, old-fashioned bread and each created a loaf to take home.  They also made the “Burnt” Sugar Cake cupcakes to take home.

They completed their potpourri by gathering more items and incorporating dehydrated sliced corn cobs, orange slices, apple peels, cucumber peels and some amazing scents.

And of course, we painted Folk Art Buckets!  And each person painted their own amazing design!  GREAT JOB!!!

So many other fun things happened as well with the many animals at the farm and I will try to describe some more of it to you tomorrow.  In the meantime you need to consider coming to one of our retreats next year.  We will have several scheduled next spring and summer.  Suzanne will post the descriptions and dates soon and I will share those with you.  It’s fun to learn new  (or improve) on skills.
