Home Sweet Home

The town we live in is amazing to me. I grew up in a small town in Tennessee and one of the things I immediately loved about Catonsville, Md. is its small town feel, though it is located on the edge of Baltimore.

For a town founded at the turn of the 19th century to keep its sense of community for so long is truly a testament to itself and the people in it. It is a great place full of history and good people. There is always fun stuff happening, too.

The following is a photo journey of Catonsville's annual Arts and Crafts Festival as well as our weekly Farmers Market.

The 35th annual Arts and Crafts Festival in Catonsville is a big to-do!

I could not pass by without one of Sherri's fabulous crabcakes.

There were several potters there but our favorite was Ben Ruble Pottery. We definitely appreciate originality in artwork and Ben's work was gorgeous & special. (

The Willow and the Rowan was amazing. Gina's artwork was so unique I have never seen anything like it. I was mesmerized by the intricate detail and color of her clay & metal work.

Although the judges at the festival thought her jewelry was a 2nd place, we felt she deserved a blue ribbon! Cornucopia's jewelry by Carlene was our favorite. She was from Lancaster, Pa., near where Rissa grew up.

We love our Farmer's Market too! It is right downtown off of Bloomsbury Ave. and contains loads of tasty morsels, every Wed. in season. We shop here for fresh fruit, vegetables, bread and more. The food is fresh, vine ripened and also from local farmers.
Support local business and your taste buds!

Tomatoes - I can eat these every day and never grow tired of them...

Special tip for men: You don't have to do something wrong to buy flowers for your lady...

Having juicy watermelon all over your face will bring out your inner child.

Eat well and be merry!

Stop by to enjoy a day in Catonsville.
