Views From Lake Placid

After the TBAI show I got to visit Lake Placid. Here are some views.

Makes you want to get out on the water.

One of the stores we visited.

Another great river view. It was beautiful up there people were hiking, swimming and riding their bikes. And it was a great day. Visit if you get the chance.

TBAI all went home

The TBAI show was great fun. There were even artists from Canada, England and Hong Kong.

Elanor Andrews of Shantock Bears from England charmed collectors and artists alike.

Me in costume at my table.

Loading the bus at Ross Park Zoo after a wonderful meal and fun with the animals and friends.
Come be part of the excitement next year!

TBAI Excitement

The show started last night with outrageous hats, high spirits and lots of laughter. The stage was set literally with a mad tea party in progress.

This is one of the Queen's Guard that I did.

There they are in the background. The White Rabbit is by artist Penny French our stage designer. And the Queen if Hearts is by TBAI chairman and artist, Cindy Malchoff.

Today included a wonderful talk from doll artist Nancy Wiley.

Here is Katherine Hallam,artist from England enjoying Nancy at right answering questions.

And here is my March Hare jewelry pin. Hope you like it. Time to get ready for the Gallery show.
