OH WHAT A WEEKEND!
We had a ball!! Diana Frey and I went to a darling antique show in a neighboring town, Nipomo, on Saturday, called Remnants from the Past. It is a darling show that happens twice a year. Ladies were in line at 7:30am, and the doors didn't open until 9am! I'd call that a success.
And guess who was there? Amy Hanna! That was fun. I hadn't seen her since we taught at Adorn Me in Houston last year. She is such a nice lady, and was gracious enough to pose for a photo with Freddy, a wonderful French man, who has a great store in SF and had a booth at the show. I tried using what little French I know, that took about two seconds! Good thing his English is so good. Not bad to look at, huh?
Here's some fun pics of some of the wonderful things I saw. I would have taken more, but I was having too much fun shopping with all the
The show had a ton of vendors, with beautiful things. Gwynnie was there from Gwynnie B designs, a great friend here in the Central Coast of CA. Check out her work, it's lovely. She specializes in pmc work.
Okay, now for pics of some of the haul I brought home. Three baby dolls came home with me. Aren't they adorable? The two heads I got at the Alameda Antique Fair in SF, and the little girl from the Remants of the Past show in Nipomo. That's ALL the dolls I'm buying! They can join my other little doll head in my workshop and keep me company.
And did I say BLING?! Here's a small sample of all the bling I picked up. It will be so much fun to play with these and add some fun found objects. I had the bling bug! Diana and I had too much fun, spent the entire day going to all the booths we could get to. So many beautiful things, but I bought from vendors I could afford. Some were out of site! You'd think they would drop their prices with the economy on its patoonie!
I didn't mention that Diana and I got to spend a lovely evening with Catherine Witherall!! We went to a fabulous restaurant and spent hours chatting away over yummy food. She is a doll, and lives in the SF area, so we got to hook up over dinner. Then she joined us the next day to shop a little, but we weren't the greatest company...we were HAULING! Great to see you Catherine! You can visit her blog at Happy Day Art. She makes beautiful pmc jewelry and always has amazing information to teach you about cool stuff!
That's it for now. Hope you enjoyed the pics.
And if you're looking for something new to learn, Diana and I still have some room in our upcoming "On the Cuff" class coming up Oct. 16-17.
