Yesterday's Sanger Art Hop at the gallery was a wonderful event! Hwy 180 was foggy, especially around Temperance Avenue, but the closer I got to the gallery, the clearer the road was. And although the first hour of the event was quiet, around 11:30 guests started trickling in, and early to mid afternoon we were swamped with visitors.
Elaine's large button-size ceramic magnets, Frank's greeting cards, and Deanna's cards of critters in the snow, plus bowls of candy and a vase of zinnias from my garden (yup, they're still blooming!).
We had nice refreshments all day. I'd brought my lunch, but the lentil dip was so nourishing that I didn't even worry about lunch.
A bowl of Madras lentils that we ate as a dip for the tortilla chips.
|Chieko's favorite Wensleydale cheese with cranberries. |
A bowl of Cuties, and a plate of delicious oat-gran bars whose recipe belonged to Frank's great grandmother. Plus a bowl of candy, of course.
As we continued with our closing procedure, I had to turn one last look east at Jesse Morrow Mountain, and admired her serene beauty again as I said a thanksgiving prayer for the day, the people we spent the day with, the new friends we made, the loveliness that surrounds the gallery, and the goodness that is this Valley of ours.
Thank you all for making this such a beautiful day. Until the next Sanger Art Hop, 29 December 2012.
