In my last post I wrote about the Tour of Tables I was involved with. Now that I’ve had time to look through and sort out pictures I thought you might like to see some tables. They were so awesome this year. Wonderful job everyone!
This Dr. Seuss table was my favorite:
All of them really were wonderful:
We’ve used children’s books as table themes for the past 2 years. I have a couple ideas percolating in my brain for next year but I’d really like to tap into your creativeness. What ideas do you have for our event’s theme?
What a wonderful, glorious day it was yesterday. Not only was it “Woolies” day, but it was sunny, warm and a gentle breeze and NO BUGS! I keep pinching myself because after all, it is only April. In Minnesota. A little early in the year for an afternoon on the deck. It seems that Ms. Jean always orders & receives perfect weather when we’re at her house. Does that mean we go to her house every month?
I think and I think and then I even think some more trying to remember all the funny stuff that comes out of a Woolie gathering. It’s hard for Faye.
Let’s see, there was the story about driving to a granddaughter’s baptism with her mother, mother-in-law and young daughter (like 30 years young.) Oh, wait, I can’t tell that one. Honestly, it was HILARIOUS! Don’t worry, I laughed enough for you too.
And husband stories are always good – and generally universal. There’s the self-confident husband with the muscles and manly swagger. Sadly, said husband would appreciate an appropriately awe-struck reaction from his wife. Can you spell f.a.k.e. response? I think all women should be given a cheat-sheet along with the marriage license that explains about faking – in whatever form is needed. ahem. When I started writing this blog, my hubs made me promise to never mention him. Which is fine, except now I can’t tell you THAT story. Bummer.
Oh, what was that story someone told about lubrication? No.o.o.o.o, it didn’t have anything to do with husbands. Sheesh. Gutters – out of!! Ms. Jo has a niece (daughter, cousin, aquaintance, whatever) that didn’t want to eat a plain sandwich. It needs “lubrication”. Like mayonaise or mustard. Gotcha.
Here’s one I can repeat. Ms. Penny had a great story about kids. Seems her young granddaughter caught a small tap on the bottom the other day. You know how that works – it’s just a method to get their attention, not to hurt them – at all. So Penny filled us in on her philosophy when her boys were little and did something for which she had to get their attention with a tap on the bottom. They would say why does Tommy-Johnny-Timmy get to do that and I can’t? Here’s the good part – she would say “because I love you too much to let you turn out rotten”! Would that all kids were loved that much.
Here’s a little show & tell from today -
Ms. Jean showed us a couple bowls she’d turned using burls. My photography leaves a lot to be desired but this 1st picture is taken from above looking straight down at it. It has some very awesome figurations & splits.
This one is a shallow bowl that has the bark on the outside edges. Both were SO BEAUTIFUL!
Don’t tell her.
I REALLY want to order this series. I have a little trouble convincing myself that I would complete it. I must stop “collecting”.
And the one thing that always happens at Woolies. Lunch. A recipe I found on Pinterest for lemon bars. Light and refreshing for Spring and best of all – no calories! Hopefully.
I need to get outside now and play in the dirt. It’ll be our last really nice day for a while so I don’t want to waste it.
