Bizzy Weekend






It was a busier weekend than I expected....the turnout for the opening was awesome....I didn't stop talking from 5:20, when I opened it up to 7:20 when I closed....many more friends came than I expected and there were many I wished I had been able to spend more time with! We went out to eat afterward but the outdoor dinner I'd planned on was impossible due to the very cold wind that was blowing, so we ended up sitting inside...much warmer but the music was a bit too loud for comfortable conversation. Next time I'll change a few things!



A dear friend brought us this incredibly blooming salvia....jaime took it from the trunk into the wheelbarrow and chuck wheeled it into the back yard and it's new home....we found the perfect place for it and the hummers have already found it...thanks so much, lisa!
Sunday a friend and I went upriver to a car show and street fair in toledo and the warmth was very welcome after the cold wind in newport!
I was too busy to take any photos of the opening but the other artist's husband had a camera and took quite a few and I hope he'll send me a couple to post here. The basho pieces received many wonderful comments, the hand pieces sure looked better here than in my rather dark living room and the little guardian spirits showed up beautifully against the unique metal paper a friend gave me.
Today I'm taking it easy....I'm driving to the park and taking my journal with me and I'll be processing a bit and also searching for the next path I need to be taking....


oh...and the lovely couple above is our son jaime and his girlfriend holly....their being here made the weekend just perfect for us....

Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend, Bobbi. I'm so glad it all went well for you. Where have you been hiding those hands? Gorgeous! How nice that your son and his GF could be there to share all the excitement.

What a special weekend for you!!! I think it is really great that Jaime and Holly came to share and stay with you. I am sorry to hear about the dinner and music...I know what you mean when it's a little too loud to talk comfortably. But, I hope you all still had a nice time together!

I'm so glad the salvia has a new home and that the hummers have already found it...that is great news! I hope you both will enjoy it!

The street fair sounded like fun and the warmth must have felt great too! What a weekend you had! Are you still on Cloud Nine?!?

Everything was absolutely outstanding and beautiful Bobbi! What a grand opening reception that you are so deserving of!!!

A hug to you...~Lisa

Glad you had a busy and good weekend and especially that you got to be with your son. It's always nice to have family with you.

Didn't your son just turn 35? Or am I thinking of someone elses? I do think it was yours though. His name is Jaime? My 35 year old is named James! We called him Jamie when he was little.

thanks again...you are all such a wonderful "peanut gallery" sometimes!
yes, your memory is right on, freebird....he just turned 35 in may and I think I commented on your blog when you mentioned your son being 35....

Congratulations on the show and thanks for sharing the pix - the basho series looks great - what am I saying - everything looks great. So glad to hear your loved ones were able to share the time with you.

Congratulations, BB! The show looks wonderful and I'm glad the turnout was so good. What a boost, huh? After the hours of working alone, fingers cramping...
Bravo!

Beautiful. I wish I'de been there too.

It feels really nice to see all these pieces profesionnally exhibited after having followed your creative steps on them for many months. I actually feel proud (just like when my mum exhibits).
