Show Snaps

I must say, I never get good pictures of our shows, I'm just too busy to get more than a few snapshots. The day before as we were setting up the phone rang, on the other end was my girlfriend saying "hey cloud lady are you outside?" the wind had picked up and the diminishing pink light was G O R G e O U S, yes I was outside *with my camera.

As the night fell Eric and Bryce worked on their display in the pottery barn.

The weather turned out to be a sampling of everything, wind, a few rain showers, sun, cloudy, cool and cold.

*entrance with Kathryn's banner

Banners line the street and lead to the gate. It was a banner show too, the crowd was tremendous.

A quick snap of Eric setting up in the momentary sun.

The show starts at 10 a.m. and this is what it looked like at 8:30 :) :) I show inside with my jewelry, this is the view from my display looking out.

* the camera was ditched shortly thereafter

Another quick snap, Eric is more set up, Kathryn mugging at my lens, the sky is sealing shut. It showered a little but after so many winter shows we seem to be prepared for anything.

We would like to extend sincere thank you's to all of you who came out and supported us, It was so much fun to see you. After so many weeks hunkered inside working, barely seeing a soul, it was the brightest of lights to see your smiles and feel your warm hugs, we just can't tell you how grateful we are to have you in our lives. We appreciate you more than you know, many, many thanks for gifting our work and maybe even keeping a few for yourselves.

To all of our online supporters we thank you as well, it's been a pleasure getting to know you better, thank you for your kindness and for allowing us to do just what it is we love to do. I also appreciate your interest in this silly blog and for taking the time to comment.

Whatever tradition or holiday you mark on your calender this time of year we wish you much joy and love, after all it IS what makes the world go round.

With much fondness and love, The Darrows

    Is Eric the only one at work around the place?

    I am totally entranced with Kathryn's banner--and I'm thinking more banners would be a good thing in the world, kind of like every woman really should have a tiara to wear when she feels like it.

    Bryce, the bird collection on the wall is stunning--I want to do that!!!!!! Now, I just have to collect more of your work....

    Ro, you have created a magnificent Christmas card here--thank you for these images and your thoughtful words--wishing you a most blessed holiday as well.
