A-reveling we will go

"Snapdragon" is a hot hit down at the Red River Revel.

Paul and Kathy Smith of Dubach, created this yard art out of shovels and other "stuff." It costs $4,000.

"A lot of people have shown interest in it," said Kathy.

But you can buy things created of old garden tools at their booth for far less. How about a butterfly for $20.

I love the wonderful tractor seats for sitting upon in the garden. Sitting is my garden if a version of their "Majer Yertle Turtle," made of an old Army helmet — bought a year or so ago here at another show.

The Smiths best seller at the RRR: Ladybugs for $50.

They sold out of early: bottle trees, "Dandy Lions" and "Granddaddy Long Legs."
But, still there is plenty left. How about an armadillo, a garden stake, or "Toadlly Delicious Dragonfly."

...Ed and Tresa Konderla’s wood furniture made from area woods is also a sight to see. The couple is from nearby Center, Texas.

Ed pointed out one especially beautiful piece that came from wild plum.

Their wood-inspired cards says "Attoyac River Gallery, Artistic Furniture and Accessories."

Stop by and ask Ed about his classroom experiences!
