Can you guess where this is?
This weekend ,was also our company (Williams Sonoma/Pottery Barn) sample sale. One of my favorite events of the year. I was in the parking lot at 7am, even though they don't let you in until 9am. But getting there early means you can park close and that's well worth waiting 2 hours. You enter the sale by lottery number - I didn't have a good one this time, I was 721 out of 900. I did okay, but no spectacular find. I was disappointed that I missed a purchase of a 4 foot Santos that someone had bought before me - darn! I did pick up this nice bookcase and some cute wire baskets (love the one shaped like a shopping bag). My other favorite is the picture of the perfume bottles. So, I didn't do too bad.
Look at this smile...
This is something I made last night. I was inspired by artist, Laurie Mika who works a lot with polymer clay. I stamped on the clay and then rubbed it with paint. The piece is about 1 1/2 inches long. I'm going to play more with this technique...it was fun.
