Beaches Arts & Crafts Show

Before I say anything about the show, I have to acknowledge that this is my 100th post! I rarely keep up these types of things for that long, so this is kind of a big deal.

Anyway, the Beaches show last weekend was fun! Lots of friendly people, and definitely some interesting characters. 

Thankfully, we did not get all the rain they were predicting in Toronto.  We got lots of beautiful sunshine instead, especially on Sunday! 

My favourite part of the show was the woman who asked me: "Who has the time to do all this work?" after I told her that each piece was hand sculpted out of glass. After I told her that I guess I had the time to do that, she pointed at me and then told me I was cuckoo.  Takes one to know one I guess?

Kindred: In Blue & White

Well, it's been an interesting week.  A night out to see some friends and art was just what I needed.  Could have done without the car stopping on the highway and the tow truck ride home though. 

The show "Kindred: In Blue & White" is fantastic, definitely worth checking out. It's on until the end of June so go, seriously!  Krystal Speck and Heather Dahl's ceramics complimented each other so well.   

Krystal and Heather also have a blog just for their joint efforts. Also worth checking out.

This morning I got to enjoy my chocolate milk in my new dahlhaus mug! 

Now after all of this excitement, I need to get ready for the Beaches show.  Setup is tonight, and thankfully the car is working again so that I can actually schlep my stuff to Toronto.
