Tulsa Trip and Ellis Paul concert

Hello All! Happy Sunday! 
It was just last Sunday that the hubby and I traveled to Tulsa, OK for a much needed day of fun. We checked out the Flea Market...didn't find a thing that we  had to have. So, we went on over to Affair of the Heart at the Tulsa Fairgrounds. I've never been, so I was happy to finally get there. They had about 850 booths, in a giant Air-conditioned building! There was SO much to see: big letters, vintage windows, kinda reminds me of Pinterest in Person!  The Prim creations of Polka Dot Pig Primitives, aka Julie Miller, was a must see. I have a little collection going on of her stuff.

It was folk singer,Woody Guthrie's 101st Birthday! 
Celebrations going on in Downtown Tulsa! The "Guthrie Green" was alive with music, craft vendors, lots of folks enjoying the afternoon on the lawn. 
We went to the Woody Guthrie Center just across the street. 
It's a wonderful tribute to the man and his legacy of music. 
I didn't realize that he was an artist, too! 
I especially enjoyed  seeing his sketches.

 This wall of screens greets you near the entrance. 
It switches to different photos, words, etc.

Love the mural on the outside wall.

 My very favorite part of our trip was the Ellis Paul concert
It was originally scheduled to be in the garden venue beside the building.
Rain and some loud thunder changed that to an indoor concert.
Ellis Paul has been, and IS one of my favorite singer/songwriters for many years.
He sang lots of his new music for the upcoming album. 
They are GREAT!
Kick Out The Lights/Johnny Cash is a FUN "audience participation" song.
My hubby even sang! 
You can hear "Chasing Beauty" on his website....or HERE!

 It's a beautiful song.

 This is Ellis and I taken after the show. It was so nice of him to sign autographs and take photos. I'm sure he was tired after playing on OKC on Friday, and then Woodyfest in Okemah on Saturday.
Thank You to Ellis for sharing your talent!
Also, thanks to Scott Aycock for putting on the show!

Yes, that is a McCartney shirt that I'm wearing! LoL!

 Here's the Art Center.
They had an amazing Fiber Arts exhibit going on.

Check out Tulsa, OK if you are ever in Oklahoma!
We had a super nice time!
