During the show I was hosted by my wonderful friends Marylou and Richard. One evening, my carelessly leading everyone over a hillside to the lower level of the restaurant's parking lot, ended Marylou up in an unseen ominous hole in the pavement. Down went my dear friend, high heels and all. She insisted on continuing on with our dinner plans so we popped a bag of ice on her ankle and ate away. Oblivion was not permitted the next morning however, and a trip to the doctor reveals a cracked fibula. Big Groan. Shame on me and my habitual shortcuts.
|Soooo sorry Marylou. But that's a lovely cane! Really! Isn't it lovely folks!|
See how it matches her outfit? It absolutely does!!
Marylou is an accoomplished artist in the Scaramento area. Multi medium artist in fact. Her sculptures are as delightful as her paintings. You can meet her and view more of her incredible art work here:

And then the gifts from my booth neighbors who are always so enjoyable and generous.
|Vintage pincushion from Auntie Em.|
Olde Wool and vintage button.
|Barbara's bookmarks - hand made|
beads from Kenya. Charms also.
Barbara used to teach art to young children in Los Angeles through the Getty Art Museum so is well skilled in now creating her own art. Her works are located on etsy - cabochon atelier.
I love fences. They stop me in my tracks. So on the way home from the Folsom show I snapped these two moss-covered beauties. The stone fence ran a good ways around the lovely lake. Click on them for better view.
