Artgirls gather

A bunch of us gathered to celebrate Susan's birthday in her wonderful light filled home in Solvang. Olive Rose dolls greeted us as we entered.

The table was set for our delicious lunch of red and green chicken enchiladas made by Colleen.
I love the iron work on the front door....
One of Susan's amazing paintings...love her work!
Two of Syd's fun pincushions in the newly remodeled kitchen.
So many fun things to look at throughout her folk art filled home....


Little ceramic teacups made by Colleen..
The girls enjoying lunch. After lunch and a delightful berry shortcake dessert with lemon curd topping, we had fun making enameled copper jewelry. Several of the girls took classes at Artfest and shared their techniques with us. So fun...can't wait to try some more projects.

Wonderful art pieces. Looks like a great way to spend a day. Interesting phrasing, isn't it --- we are spending our days.
