The 44th annual Summerfair was held over the weekend at Cincinnati’s version of Coney Island.  This is a 125-year-old amusement park with lots of old, shady trees and plenty of places to sit and rest between visits to all of the juried crafters’ booths.

Many years, I just stroll and admire all the beautiful crafts without buying anything, but this year, I saw a wall pocket that I really liked.  It was made by the Pottery Boys from Blue Island, Illinois, and I had just the right spot for it in my kitchen.  It is exactly the same color green as my primitive shelf and is just right for a snapdragon cutting from my garden.
