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.

And they're off...!

A few minutes after the doors opened, mayhem ensued...

Some of the incredible art, including this from Iva...

Anna Corba....

And look at these cuties!

These were just plain exquisite...

Loved this little guy...

and this little snow babe...

This little lady stole my heart...
...and Sue Bartolucci's little man had me at hello, but Dede snatched him up first!

Virginia's owls are the bomb!

But as all good things must come to an end, the afternoon found us back in the car, shuttling to the airport, and back on a plane home as the sun was setting over the bay area...

Dede's wicker picnic basket (an impromptu thrift store find in Berkeley) made it on board but wouldn't fit into the overhead, so it ended up strapped in between us....


And here are the two slap-happy girls, tired but still smilin'....

Oh thank you so much for sharing all of this! So much astounding enchantment made my heart sing! Nancy on the photo of you and Dede plane you look like the cat that ate the canary, leading me to wonder what goodies you brought back with you....
