Happy Turkey Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can you just imagine what it would be like to be able to go see the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade on Thanksgiving morning? I've been surfing google images for pics of this most fond memory. The smell of turkey and the TV tuned in to watch all those helium filled baloons, the bands, the Rockettes, the actors from the broadway plays, the famous singers and we can't forget the end.....the one that we all used to wait for to make his appearance!

That most jolly old elf!!!!!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!

It Seems Like Forever....................

Since I listed something on eBay! LOL I've been so busy with the show and Fall Open House with my shoppe that I really haven't had time to make anything here lately. Throw in watching my 2 1/2 year old granddaughter 3-4 days a week and working at the shoppe too...........LOL

And people ask me if I paint while I'm at the shoppe............well I hate walking up to the counter with glue, glitter or paint on my body parts and or clothing. I am very good at ruining almost all my clothing if I'm creating. You would think that I would learn and wear either something that already had paint all over it or an apron but noooooooooooo................not I! I'm too impatient to take the time to do that! HAHAHA!!!

So anyhow..........I got this little cutie done the other day! YEAH ME! She's painted in acrylics on a coffee dyed hang tag and embellished with real german glass glitter, a vintage shoe button, hand made wire hanger and pages from an early 1900's book. I hope you like her and have time to GO VISIT HER on eBay!

Thanks for stopping by and for taking a peek at my art..........

Meeting a Fellow Pfattie for the very first time!

This past weekend, JoycEE, Kathy, Brenda and I went down to Columbus, OH to go to the From Our Hands Show and to meet P2 for the very first time!!!

Here's a pic from the show and P2's hubby Dan was taking our pics for us...........THANKS DAN! :-D

(From Left to Right: Joyce Stahl of Enchanted Productions, Pam Gracia of Soft in the Head, Brenda Ostrowski of Magic Garden, Kathy Hunka (rear) of Primsical Studios and me...Lori Davis of Vintage*Palette)

Pam's booth was absolutely amazing!!! After all the squealing and hugging we had to run over and start looking at all the goodies!!! Everyone starting grabbing at the same time too!! hahahaha!!! Decisions....decisions!!!! There is nothing quite like seeing a Pfatt sisters work in person! And Pam is one amazing artist!

Here's a pic of Brenda after she took down her dolly of choice and just in time as a man walked into the booth and told Brenda that he was on his way over to buy her just then! He was very kind and picked up his second choice............boy were you lucky Brenda! You didn't have to pull out your mace!! *giggle*

After we left the show, we went to check in at the hotel. Once inside we had to unwrap our goodies and put them all together for a Soft in the Head family photo! Aren't they adorable?????

We agreed to meet after the show and eat at the Cheescake Factory which was located in Easton Town Center. We only had to walk two blocks to get there. And I forgot to mention that the fall weather was absolutely perfect! We couldn't have asked for a better weekend! We shopped around a bit at some of the amazing stores and people watched too. Easton Town Center is like a whole little downtown filled with so many yummy stores! They say that it is absolutely gorgeous at Christmas time. I want to go back down and visit then too!

Here's the view of how close our hotel was. I took this one while sitting across from the Cheesecake Factory waiting on P2 and Dan to arrive.........

We had so much fun eating and talking during dinner! Pam and her hubby Dan are so much fun to be around!! And it's funny when you meet someone for the first time, yet you feel like you have known them forever? You know what I mean???

We walked back to the hotel then and invited Pam and Dan to stop by so we could continue getting to know them. We met in the gorgeous lobby and sat around and talked for a good hour and a half. We honestly didn't want them to have to go but we knew how tired they had to be after doing the show together. I know how all that pre-show stress is and you can't get any sleep and then the big day comes and when it's all over, you're absolutely wasted!!

So thank you Pam and Dan for everything! I hope you have a safe trip home today and that you enjoyed your trip to Ohio! We know that we sure enjoyed you being here and getting to meet you both! You are two very amazing people and such fun to be around!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope you enjoyed your Ohio wine too!

And thank you JoycEE, Brenda and Kathy for going along and making this such a fun filled weekend! Can't wait until next time!
