For those of you who don't know, that's the Great American Brass Band Festival. Most residents would say that it is the best weekend to live in Danville. There is fun, amazing brass music, dancing, fattening food, and {now} lots of fun cocktails! This year, we had a new event that Friday night called Bayou and Brass. Here's a picture of some of the Main Street fun...

Sorry, I know it's blurry. But this was a fantastic turn out for our small community! People as far as the picture can see :-) I love being a Downtown Diva ;-)

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of helping out with the Danville-Boyle County Humane Society's PetSmart partnership, and it was so much fun!

Marie...I think (or maybe that's Blaze) :-)

Precious puppies, wild kittens, and even some napping adult cats were up for adoption. Tons of people stopped by to play with and pet the animals, and 5 were adopted out that day! PetSmart accounts for 50% of DBCHS's adoptions, so the program is obviously really important to the animals. Between PetSmart and the open house at the shelter this weekend, SIXTEEN pets were adopted out in just TWO days! That's big...just ask Marie (or Blaze).

Wreath and Reinvention!

I haven't blogged in forever...I am awful! Fortunately, with summer comes more free time for me, so I WILL be updating much more often! I wanted to post my lastest and (possibly) greatest craft which I found on Pinterest...where else?! I followed the tutorial at Life With 4 Boys to figure out how to make this cute yarn wreath, and just changed the colors and embellishments to suit my color choices. I am getting ready to hang it up and I can't wait to see it on my front door! Isn't it cute?!

Now, with the more frequent posting I am thinking of changing it up around here. After a recommendation from one of my only two followers :-) I may be doing shorter, more frequent posts. I do think I'll still be bragging about my crafts and some recipes on here to anyone that will listen, though! :) Mom and Ju, thanks for sticking with me! ;-)
