The snow fairies held off long enough to have a very successful Festival of Lights. The art was amazing. And the artists were warm, welcoming and wonderful. We had a great time trading and buying — my house is full of new objects, all lovingly made by hand — including a sweet felt Santa made by Linda Sue.

Elaine makes these delicate decorated bottles and boxes. Her husband has drilled holes in the backs of some of the bottles , which she has turned into nightlights.

Karin puts together these wonderful collages — part funk, part industrial, and part just plain wonder.

Collage pins and magnets -- fantastic

And I forgot to mention, the whole atmosphere at Amy and David’s house is wonderful, with the girls and Atlas (one amazing dog) running around. And besides being a good sport, David makes a mean white bean chili.
