Since you asked:

"Therefore, to be possess'd with double pomp, to guard a title that was rich before, to gild refined gold, to paint the lily,
to throw a perfume on the violet, to smooth the ice, or add another hue unto the rainbow, or with taper-light
to seek the beauteous eye of heaven to garnish, is wasteful and ridiculous excess."

~William Shakespeare,
ca. 1595

Yup, that's us.

Crowning glories...

Saturday we hosted Cindy Gonzales for her second crown class at Gilding. This amazingly talented and humble artist is such a wonderful person, and every student leaves her class with a beautiful crown, and feeling they have made a new and lasting art friendship.

Pictured above from left: Mary, Pearl, Karen (at bottom), Andrea, Dede, Cindy, and Margie, all perched on the old fountain in the courtyard. The weather was fabulous, so we held class outdoors on the courtyard, and much fun was had by all.

Cindy will join us for two more classes before the year is more crown for Christmas (and it's phenomenal...look for it on the blog soon), and some darling Victorian candle clip ornaments. Can't wait!
