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.

A Wonderful Weekend...

What you see below is the awesome, inspirational art of Diane Cook, who joined us for a weekend event that included our first trunk show of the year, and two days of workshops with the owner of Rosa & Josies. She was accompanied by her adorable husband Alan, who was a real trooper, helping with setup and assisting when needed....

Here is Diane with our lovely Connie, who has gone blonde! Don't you love it?

Josie gets in some hammer time, work hardening a piece of metal on the block...

The weather couldn't have been more beautiful, and we had the windows and french doors thrown open on the south side of the house and Buddha Bar VI playing in the background as people worked.

And here is my precious Ada, holding up her wonderful tassel for her necklace!

We had a wonderful time both days, and although both classes were packed, I'm sure there were plenty of people who would have liked to have come that were not able to. We can look forward to another visit from this creative Texan next year, but in the meantime, you can visit her Etsy store to see her lovely creations, including her new "Romancing the Cuff" kit and tutorial...
