The ARt Girls gathered at Pepa's delightful home for the August birthday girls party. Party favors awaited us on the patio, we each received a potted begonia and a special button to wear.
Some of Pepa's beautiful roses.
Susan Bezek, who will be teaching at Art & Soul in Portland brought us some show and tell brooches that she had made. She also brought us each a doll project to work on. She had pre-sewn all the doll parts for us and even printed out vintage faces.
