Last week as most of you know I went to a sale in Rochester put on by 2 wonderful ladies I ‘met’ online.
They host this event annually, this year was their 4th year.
Check out my review of their show from 2 years ago here.
The last time I went I didn’t take any photos, but this year Sandy and Bobbi very graciously let me try to capture some of the magic to show to my blog buddies.
Well, I took soooo many photos it was difficult to choose which to show, and when. Certainly there were way too many to put in one post.
So I decided to break it up a bit and split this into several posts. The first one you already saw last Saturday, a teaser with a few photos to hold you over until I could get a bit more organized and go through the file.
Today you will see some of the overall pictures, just to try to give you all an idea of how beautiful this setting was and the magnitude of their work.
So much beauty and creativity in one place, it is an experience I would love to share with each and every one of you.
I must warn you, I really stink at taking photos. My camera is a point and shoot, and although I have read Funky Junk Donna’s tips on how to take better pictures with a point and shoot, suffice to say I never took time to practice the lessons. Now I sure wish I had.
So I must apologize to all of you for the poor quality pictures. They didn’t even remotely capture the setting.
Let me introduce you first to Sandy and Bobbi. They are the brains and talent behind all you are about to see.
The show is held at Bobbi’s house in her beautiful back yard garden.
Sometime I hope to get back there just to admire the garden by itself!
The entrance to the yard is through this arch.
Once you go through this gate you leave all reality behind and enter the magical world of “A Garden Gallery”.
There is just no other way to describe it.
I will leave you now to scroll through and imagine the beauty.
In this photo Sandy and Bobbi posed with me, and is taken just before I very reluctantly left.
Thank you so much Sandy and Bobbi.
It was a wonderful experience!
Later I will show you some more photos of the Grandchildren’s Grotto. That deserves a post all it’s own.
And of course, you’ll want some close ups of some of their wonderful creations too, right?
I think I need one post just for the mosaic, another for garden chairs, another for birdbaths, and so on.
Oh, and you probably want to know what my friend Linda and I bought from this sale, don’t you?
I thought so.
Gotta go now, it’s trash day somewhere…..
