An Evening in FLORENCE....South Carolina, that is!

Yesterday Steve and I headed to Florence...South Carolina. It's about ninety miles from Columbia...also South Carolina! It was an evening art reception for the juried exhibit at the Florence Alliance arts weekend. When we arrived, there was already a small work in my "booth" (first time I've ever done this part!) that was labeled as "Patron Purchase Award". I was thrilled. For me, this made my evening.

The food was delicious...mostly homemade. There was live music and lots of nice people. At 8:00 PM Carrie Brown, the juror said a few words and announced the winners. I WON ONE OF THREE FIRST PLACE AWARDS! It was wonderful and totally my honor!

Now, I'm going back to my "booth"...without a care in the world...if anyone buys anything it's just icing on the cake!

PS CYBER FYBER is going well! Keep spreading the word and trading with me! The exhibition is going to be GREAT!
