First I decided to surprise a former flute student of mine, my favorite student really. I walked into her shop and she had her back to me. I announced, Christine your old flute teacher is here to see you. She jumped and gave a little scream. We hadn’t seen each other in many years and she is no middle school girl anymore. We had a nice chat in between customers and then I had to get on my way. If you are ever in Portland be sure to visit Living Threads Vintage. She only caries the finest merchandise for both men and women as well as jewelry and decorative items. Tell her Diane sent you.
You can find Living Threads Vintage at 1008 SW Taylor St. Portland, OR 97205 And you might want to visit her blog at www.redhedgingerbread.blogspot.com
The afternoon was filled with new friends and collaging. We spent 3 hours in a lovely woodland setting sharing the experience, creating with paper and glue. Here are 3 cards I made. I haven’t interviewed them yet. Do they speak to you?
On the way home I made a quick side trip to a Tulip Festival. It was getting dark so I only had a short time to enjoy the Wonderful World of Color as Walt Disney would have said. The show garden had rows of single varieties while a field across the street was a riot of yellows, reds, purple and pinks. (Sorry that photos is a bit blurry as a gust of wind came up.) All in all a nice finish to a full day.
