Girls' Weekend



This past weekend I did not set foot into my studio. I did, however, renew my spirit with a visit from my very best friend from college days. We only get to see each other two or three times a year and so our visits are very special to us. We spent part of the day poking around antique and gift shops and a wonderful vintage book/ephemera store. (The shopkeeper at the latter even commented that we hadn't stopped talking since we had entered the store...quite true, we rarely come up for air :)

I found some wonderful cabinet cards and vintage postcards, at that particular shop, that I hope to play with and collage. So you may be seeing something like that in the not too distant future. (That is when I locate them...I fear they may have traveled back to New York with her packages by mistake.)

It was a wonderful weekend and I am so grateful to have such a dear friend, who knows me SO well and with whom I can share ANYTHING. Here's hoping that you have someone equally as special in your life and that even if they live far away, you make time to spend together.

It sounds like you had a wonderful, recharging time with your friend!
I look forward to your new work. I mean... that is, when you locate your cards!
Sometimes I put away things so I won't loose them and forget where I put them!!!

As always, thanks for leaving such flattering comments on my blog. Your gals over here always look so stylish in that old world kind of way. Pretty, pretty!

Ooooooo, this one is really sweet. The sepia tones are so warm and toasty and those gals seem like they're having a great time gossiping.

Glad you had such a nice time. I know how that is. Nothing is more rejuvenating than a visit with a great friend.

You've been tagged back.
You can play by posting 5 random things about YOU, and pass it on if you wish.
