ST. CLOUD -- Garden art, handmade soaps and lemonade are just a few things to catch your eye at the 43rd Lemonade Concert and Art Fair this (Thursday) afternoon.

You'll also find Let's Dish Garden Art owner Jan Bartell who lives life by one motto.

"Reuse, Re-enjoy," says Bartell.

Bartell has been creating garden decor from everyday dishware for the past four years.

"I use dishes, cups, the nobs from the cabinets and the silverware to create each piece. So we're down to having finger food now," says Bartell.

This is Bartell's first year at the Lemonade Art Fair and says many of her ideas come in her sleep.

"You wake up and have some of these brain storms ideas and then you try and piece it together so it fits," says Bartell

You can find Bartell's creations next to the Administration Building at the campus of St. Cloud State University until 8:30 p.m.

The Lemonade Art Fair is the kickoff to Granite City Days. Opening ceremonies will begin at 6:30 p.m. with music by the St. Cloud Symphony beginning at 7:30 p.m.
