So after all the work and fussing (thanks, Chrissie, for being a good sport) in preparation, the show in Charlottesville is now a thing of the past. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I love Charlottesville. The people are so much more friendly, the atmosphere is completely different, the restaurant selection is better (yes, I love to eat...a lot), and mainly, it's just a more diverse city with more to offer. Anyway, it was a nice, if not ridiculously hot, day yesterday, and while it started off slow, I think I did pretty well in the end; certainly better than I would have done sitting at home yesterday! The only problem is that Chris and I were in vendor mode and forgot to take pictures of my display! Here's what we did get...
The gallery is split into two buildings, so to direct traffic to our nice, AIR CONDITIONED building, Sarah was kind enough to make funny signs to get the shoppers attention! The next picture is of my pita-and-coca-cola-stuffed self on the way back to the parking lot after dinner. Out of all the nicknames I've picked up along the way, I think "Finch" is my favorite. Haley started calling me that a while back, so I told Chris to get a picture of Finch by Finch to show Songbird (Haley)!
At first I had nothing but spiders...EVERYWHERE! Luckily they've seemed to move on, but now my yard has been overtaken by grasshoppers, and by the looks of the picture above, I'd say I can expect a lot more. This couple kept me company while I was resin casting the other day on my deck; they weren't shy, either.
P.S. If you entered the giveaway at The Bridge yesterday, don't forget to check back in the morning to see if you're the lucky winner! Also, if you haven't already, be sure to enter the bullet and aquamarine necklace giveaway!
