Leola's Christmas Open House: Part 1


My sister and I came down before the doors opened Thursday evening. 
to take photos and say Hi to all the gals.
They always know how to throw a great party.

I have to apologize for the photos,
I wear contact lens, one for far away; one for reading,
that makes for lousy camera shots.
I even tried using reading glasses and some were still fuzzy.
But I'm showing them anyway.

Hope you enjoy them thru the blur...























See that scrolly architectural piece below?
That came home with me.












































So much talent.

  24. Funny that you think the photos are funny b/c sadly, I can see them just fine. Wonder what that says about me? LOL! Great pictures. I can't wait until I can have a booth! If you only came home with one thing, congrats! I couldn't have been so well behaved!

  25. I thought your pictures turned out great -- of course, everything looks a little blurry to me by this time of night. Thanks for always being there & always taking pictures. We appreciate it.

  26. Wow, I see so many beautiful things here that I love, Debra! The spool ornaments are wonderful, and I adore all of the bottle brush trees, too. I can empathize with your contact lens delima! I wear them for distance, and have to wear reading glasses over them to see anything close up. So, often when I take photos, I don't have my glasses on, and have to blindly aim, shoot, and hope for the best!

  27. Well I was able to see some of the photos and the blurriness had nothing to do with it. SLOW computer so just enjoyed the ones that did load! HA!
    I love that chippy wood box with the ornaments displayed. Beautiful!!
    Blessings~
