Memories of Birdsong

Dear friends, I have missed posting while away at Birdsong at Karla's Cottage!  We arrived home last night and I have just downloaded all my photos and begun re-living the the weekend!
 The joy of being at Karla's Cottage...
 ...of making wonderful new friends!
Having adventures with Suzanne...
all along the way!
The bliss of learning from talented women...
...so willing to share their knowledge!
Enjoying Karla's hospitality...
...and basking in the the atmosphere of beauty,
...and inspiration, 
 ...and encouragement,
  that was Birdsong!
I'm so happy to call Karla my friend!
I can't wait to show you all my photos -- especially the wonderful projects we made in the four classes!

Sweet Laurie, it was such a pleasure meeting you! You have the sweetest smile. I can't wait until Karla has another event so we can all be together again, laughing, creating, enjoying good food & just being in the beautiful atmosphere!

Laurie, I had sooo much fun with you!!!! Your blog post is great...can't wait to see more. (the pic of you & Suzanne through the depression glass is wayyy cool) And "basking" was certainly the right word for it. Basking in all the beauty, talent, kinship & creativity....it was almost sensory overload!

Looks like you had so much fun! I especially like the photo of you and Suzanne at the antique shop with the vaseline glass all lit up with a black light. I have just one small treasured vaseline glass vase.
