An Artist Date

At the beginning of June and the end of August the artists in the Interlake area of Manitoba open their art studios for the Wave.  Maps and well marked little flags with a blue wave on them direct the public to displays of all kinds of art.  

The Rooster insisted we take Saturday and have a look around.

There was lots to learn.  We saw everything from large pieces of pottery down to very fine jewelry.

"Mad Hatters Tea pARTy" served up amazing art and fabulous tea samplings.  YUM!

Some studios offer classes and I can see us enrolled in something during our retiring days! 

We finished with a lovely dinner at a favourite restaurant.  The rest of the weekend was more of a 'work' party but we certainly had a great starting date!  :)

What a wonderful joyful day you two shared. I love attending our "Open Studio" days which are held once a year. It is always a pleasure to see what others are creating and in what spaces. Blissful Date Dear...

Your date is looking a little thin ... are you sure you are remembering to feed him?

I love seeing other artist's work spaces. It's fascinating. What a wonderful way to spend a day. Can you get Rooster to talk to my husband about the perfect date? I need to get those checkered tights...they're amazing.

What lovely sights you saw. I'm in awe of the art that was on display. I'd love to do some kiln work someday.

Sounds like you are on a roll getting rid of all the wasted areas and such in your life. I also want a felting machine. My sewing machine wouldn't take an attachment (grin).
