Visit to a Craft show
These mugs are our first purchase of the day.
We love Michael Natale's mugs and already have two. We do NOT need another coffee mug, but the grace and colors are too hard to resist. When it was time for a rest, the husband and poodle tried out the rockers. As soon as the two of them got, er, off their rockers, we moved on...
There was a lot of jewelry shopping going on, the kind where a dog can't even SEE the merchandise, but eventually we stopped in to visit with a photographer extraordinaire, Bruce Bozman www.iconartphoto.com from NY.
We enjoyed a wonderful few minutes interviewing him and learning about his process.
His work is colorful, abstract, visually textured and very Quilt-like to me. High praise!
The idea came to him when he saw dripping against the hull of a boat, with the sun just right. Ahh, living the creative life. Cole got some serious petting, and caught a few zzzzzz's while we chatted.
We bought some roasted chestnuts to fortify us all, enjoying the warmth on a cold day.
As night approached, we moved on to... listen to the angels singing....mecca. The Container Store.
When we get that close to Rockville, we have to go by TCS. As all crafters know, we could be brilliantly organized if only we had the right plastic containers.
Then on to BARK! for venison treats for Cole, picked up dinner to go and dragged our selves home.
I am so glad Drew enjoys or at least tolerates my love of craft shows, and the artist interviews I do. It's all part of the package.
