Please Don't Make Me Leave...

I've been splitting my time between preparing the household & getting as much of Charlottesville into my system. Today my little man & I visited the downtown mall. I went to say goodbye to my beading friends at Studio Baboo.
I went to another store today for the first time, The Artful Lodger. It's a wonderful furniture store that has some great gifts. Look what I got! A Jill Schwartz shadow box. I'm in love :) I chatted with the store owner for awhile & really enjoyed it. Charlottesville has opened my eyes to "buying local". Being an artist myself, how could you not? This beauty is going in my art room in the new house. Looking forward to having a room vs. a corner this time around.

Nerissa,
I so enjoyed meeting you and having you visit us at The Artful Lodger. What a great prize you got today. I hope whenever you look at your Jill Schwartz shadowbox you smile and think of Charlottesville. Your work is LOVELY and even if it is just a corner of a room, I bet your studio is really inspiring. Best of luck to you and your family.

The shadowbox is a beauty and what a find it is. Well, at least you have it to remember Charlotesville by. And seeing it, you will always be reminded of the wonderful memories you had.
