Out in the Blue...

 Hello Friends!

My artful journeys have kept me traveling the last few months!  I have much to catch up with on my blog!  Here are a few more photos of the Bliss at my Beauty in Blue event!

We did a shoe swap...embellish a shoe and fill it with treasures!  This was mine!  It was a 1912 wedding shoe. So Beautiful!  Sherry now owns it!  I saved the other for me...  I will embellish it and display it in my art studio!

There were three projects for the weekend all boasting shades of blue!  This was called the "Beautiful Blue Vignette" taught by Fabulous Molly Knox

This is the "Bountiful Bucket of Blue" taught by the delightful and wonderful Jennifer Hayslip!

                   And this was the project I taught, The "Belle in the     Bluebonnets" Statement necklace!      

Stacy from The Whitworth Ranch Retreat was truly the greatest hostess ever!  I wanted to make something for her to remember the event by, so I created this "Moment in Time" piece.  It was a clock that didn't work anymore so I took out the face and embellished it with a frozen charlotte.  All of our names are on the back!

                                             More moments in blue!

                   Stacy is an incredible chef who prepared all of our meals.  I was CRAVING tomatoes and she made this beautiful salad!

        A Tex-Mex speciality!  Stuffed Poblano Pepper!  YUMMMMMMY!!!

I took the ladies to all kinds of vintage and antique shops and we shopped until
we dropped at the Canton Market!

What a fun event that must of been. I LOVE the detail of the embellished blue shoe and the clock you made is wonderful and beautiful.

More photos of this beautiful event I was able to attend! Love the shoe--and that clock!!! It is over-the-top gorgeous. Stacy is one lucky lady to have been the recipient. She did a great job taking care of us at Whitworth Ranch. Her cooking as a professional chef was scrumptious.

A big thank you to you, Karen, for all your behind-the-scenes work, to Stacy for providing the lovely place to stay, and to Jenn, Molly, and you for teaching us the lovely projects.

I am surrounded by mementos of that beautiful weekend, so Beauty in Blue is never far from my mind. : )
