Shaun van Steyn was kind enough to forward this photo of the contributing artists that attended the Falls Church Arts Auction on Sunday evening. It was a lively crowd, the bidding was fast & furious, and the recipients were delighted with their winning bids (if jumping up and down and "yippee-ing" counts as such!). One such patron of the arts had the good taste to buy both Beth & Debby's offerings. The betting was so competitive on one piece of sculpture our auctioneer, (Paul Quinn of Falls Churchown's Quinn's Auction House), suggested that the artist make a companion piece so both bidders could win! He joyously agreed and the bidding continued.... Make time in your schedule to go next year. It was grand.
I am having a less than grand time today. Am recovering from dental surgery. Look like Marlon Brando with hair and a bad attitude.
You may have heard the sad news that Lani Phillips from Beyond the Garden Gate has closed up shop. But she is not quite gone from Falls Church yet, she and her friend Carolyn were in this morning with oodles of Christmas ornaments for the holiday season. If you were contemplating either the cute white hoosier cabinet or that nifty tall wooden column they are here; come get 'em before they are gone!
FIRSTFriday is this week so come have fun after your post-Halloween sugar let-down on Friday from 5-8pm. Parking COULD be interesting as they are resurfacing the lot behind us but you can always park across the street or next door so DO come. I'd love to see you!
