|Angie's WIP for Project Runway|
|Angie and I creating|
|Kyra is an attorney when not creating. She learned the technique of French knots from Colette that morning|
|It was fun walking around the different tables looking at the different interpretations of Project Runway|
|OMG, look at the ruffles, too cute!|
|My new friend, Suz, check out her to-love apron!|
In between classes on Friday, Angie and I stepped out the front door of the Emabassy Suites, turned left and walked right to the Old Market section of downtown Omaha. Fabulous eateries, shops and the antique store of all antique stores (IMHO) Second Chance. We could have spent all day there. I bought several sheets of vintage music and my prize was a packet of vintage travel photos of Paris. And at this moment I can't find them because I've not worked in my studio since I've been back from Omaha......'nother blog post, I guess.
|Our WIP "She Ornaments"|
|Our invitation to Friday night's Hats on Parade|
At 6:30 the doors to largest of the hotel conference rooms opened to a reception and a fantastic vendor night. I had to take a deep breath every time I moved to a vendor's booth, the items were lushious and my wallet light. I bought some vintage metal numbers, a cottage felt ornament kit from Charlotte Lyons, a vintage handmade necklace similar to this from Beth Quinn's booth ( daughter Angie was one of the lucky recipients in Beth's class to win one of her drop fall necklaces )and Angie did a lot of Christmas shopping at Beth's booth!
|Ephemera, swoon and sigh!|
|Beth Quinn's jewelry designs|
|Mystery Bella, I'm sorry I didn't get her name, and the photo of her shoes did not come out, she glued 100's of white pearlized buttons on her white high heels, magnificent!!|
