Happy Birthday to me!

Today is my birthday, which I have been celebrating for quite some time. In reality, this entire year has been a celebration of life.

The official birthday kick-off was with Crowns, the evening before the beginning of August. But I also splurged with the Geneva trip, and treated myself to some lovely art work by a friend (more on the personal gallery in a future post).

On Friday I tried on Ferragamo Shoes during the WIN Innovation Circle, but my wallet isn’t ready for that kind of splurge yet.

However, I did sell one of my pieces to my friend, which is very exciting and helps toward the newly implemented Ferragamo fund.

In the evening I perused the Hot Wax in the City Opening, while enjoying catching up with all my FUSEDChicago friends. It was lovely to examine their new works and close that evening dining with a friend.

Saturday was spent at the Bristol Renaissance Faire, where Il Dottore offered advice to passers-by.


We also played with hats, and watched jousting, whip crackers and a mud show.

Sunday was spent relaxing and reading.

This week I get to see the Six Dead Queens and an Inflatable Henry show again at Piccolo Theatre.


The fun just won’t stop!
