This large metal and wire cake was the center piece at the Farm Chicks Show last weekend. It was very cool and made me wanna do some metal creations myself! You can only get the jest of how large it was...I only had my hubby's small camera to use. I have lost my battery charger for my camera and had to go with the backup. But it is just not "my camera."
Yep, this is me with Jo Packman, the founder of Where Women Create. I bought the book when it came out and have bought every issue of the magazine ever since. I told her I was gonna be in her magazine someday...she said "Send me your information." So whenever I get settled and get to have a studio again I'm gonna do just that! I had to ordered the new book, "Inspiration" since she ran out at the show. But it will come in the mail to me signed by her. BTW, I am not towering over her in the photo, she is sitting down for the book signings.
Rolane sold some of my crowns...I forgot to get a picture of them in her booth. I only had a few left and with recently moving it was just not possible to get more made. Rolane's show is coming up in July in Rathdrum, Idaho. Great outdoor show at her farm there. My crowns will be there, providing I can get more made.
Serena is very sweet and personable. I finally bought her first cook book at the show and got her to sign it. I like that it has "stuff" other than just recipes in it. Pretty book. This photo was taken at the end of the day...I look pretty thrashed after all of that walking around and trying to get into booths. My bangs curled up as they tend to do at times. The show was very crowded, which is good, means they had good stuff there. I did manage to find some treasures; an old wood corn cob scraper (nice patina), a very old apple corer, a great old print that says "Christ is the Head of this House," -very Victorian, old jars lids (always looking for these), bone handled fork, and a few more smaller treasures. I had fun, as always even going alone. Thanks, Serena for all of your hard work.
