Painting with friends at the Stone House
Wisteria blooming on the Stone House. Spent Thursday through Sunday -- learning fabulous watercolor techniques at the most wonderful place on the ocean just North of Boston, Manchester by the sea. Sixteen artists and writers came together to make beautiful little paintings. Writers write. Painters paint. The vegetarian lunches and dinners were interesting. The dip and chips along with great wine was so tasty. Thank you Barbara for inviting me to go with you.
This is the best consignment shop in New England. What fun. I almost bought a Coach travel bag for $125.00. Well I did buy it, but when I put it into the car I noticed it was a little worn on one side, so I returned it. They were gracious. Took it back! If I had more time, I would have shopped for a few more hours. Yes hours. Things I didn't buy...4 sets of antique dishes, a watercolor of a horse woman in the saddle, Two Skagen watches. Designer fabric. A tablecloth and napkin set. Not for me but to sell on ebay, of course. THIS IS MY FAVORITE STORE. I WILL DRIVE 2 1/2 HOURS ONCE A MONTH.....YES I WILL.
