You see, my birthday is next Saturday, the10th, my hubby's is the 14th,
and poor sweet Michelle, our only child... well... hers is the 16th.
I like that they are all in the same week because I'll never forget them...
but it's hard celebrating three different people in 7 days and...
making each one feel as special as they deserve.
Instead they can tend to blur together.
But not so this year... we started early and we started with mine!
Michelle... bless her heart... treated me to an awesomely wonderful day
of artsy inspiration and celebration Saturday which began with a couple
of local vintage sales including Randall Woods and Uncovered Ruby ...
I loved seeing this chandelier hanging gracefullly in a greenhouse!
We then headed to Portland to the Local 14 Art Show & Sale which featured
84 women artists with an amazing variety of mediums and styles.
It was fantastic with a few of my favorites being...
and Carrie Tasman.
After this visual feast of inspiration, Michelle knew just the spot
to feed our hungry bodies...
Por que No? It was seriously yummy!
From there we were off to the Art and Soul Vendor's Show where eye candy
was abundant with offerings from many of the workshop teachers
including one of our favorite local artists...
Lisa Kaus... Michelle and I took a workshop from Lisa for my last birthday!
We finished off our day of celebration with a dish of YoCream Frozen Yogurt
topped with chocolate chip sprinkles.
And what a treat it was that on the way to Art and Soul God treated us
with a bit of visual beauty of His own... this brilliant rainbow...
a sign that He was right there celebrating with us!
I AM BLESSED... and THANKFUL for it!
Bless you all...
