But this weekend I took a break. We went to the Summer Solstice at the Cleveland Museum of Art last night...always a good time. Ran into a number of people from work.
And today I decided to go through my B&B stash and photos. B&B is always a whirlwind. Between teaching classes and spending time with friends. It goes so fast.
The first stop is always the Calderone Club for great pasta and fried eggplant...which is heaven!!
|Karen, Paul, and Cris...smilling because they've had eggplant!!|
Then on to the business of teaching. We taught a metal clay class and a couple of twisted bracelets classes, and a fabrication class.
|Metal clay samples from class|
|Students hard at work|
|Bracelets made with the twisted wire|
|Everyone gathering for show and tell|
|Show and tell. These ladies made a lot!!|
Another mandatory dinner is Mader's. Great German food. And a picture in the massive chair they have.
|YiYi and Cris|
Then on to the business of shopping. Funny...I am drawn to the same things every year. I guess that's not a bad thing.
|Lots of etched agate|
|Love this print block|
|Lapis. These chucks are gorgeous|
|Wood beads inlaid with silver. They make great accent beads.|
|A table full of trade beads. My version of heaven!!|
|Serious discussion about beads?|
|Shell...called hippos teeth because of the shape.|
|Bronze accent beads|
|Dinosaur bone...yes...dinosaur bone. Aren't these great?!!|
|Gary Wilson stones!!|
|Arthuro and YiYi with Billy Gardell from Mike and Molly. We always seem to see someone famous when we are in Milwaukee.|
|Goodbye Milwaukee...see you next year!!|
