Artist Trading Cards

I received 2 art cards from members of the group I belong to ~ Artist Trading Cards.  The Oct./Nov. theme was "Color Me Autumn". 
Thank you, Maggie, for the sweet Halloween ATC, and Lorraine, for the Autumn ATC with quote on reverse.
SO creative!

Sunday Afternoon

 Fell in love with the Moonstone Ring and the Green Turquoise/with Copper Pendant.  Gorgeous rocks speak for themselves.
****
On this pleasant 65* Sunday afternoon (what a surprise after a VERY cold Friday and Saturday), I went to the 39th Annual Roanoke Valley Mineral & Gem Show.  Always fun.  Purchases pictured.  Bought a couple of Christmas gifts, but can't post ~ don't want friends to see.
Posted photos of pretty sights on my way to and from the Civic Center.  Lovely day!

Thanksgiving 2018

Our Annual Thanksgiving! Once again, we met up at The Natural Bridge Hotel for the buffet with Amanda's family.  Always SO much fun! Loved being with Casey for a few hours today. Will have a lot more time together at Christmas when they come to stay with us.

Sunday Afternoon

Just hangin' out at the Grandin Theatre this afternoon!

Black Dog Salvage

Mr. Magic and I spent the afternoon at Black Dog Salvage in Roanoke.  They had their Holiday Open House today and I wanted to visit with my good friend John Reburn of Appalachia Press.  He was making Gift Tags on his portable press, and his booth was loaded with  goodies.
I also stopped at friend Donna's booth ~ Rust and Roses.  Saw paintings by good friend Ibby Greer (Fiesta Dishes) that are very popular.  Met a couple from Ohio (my neck of the woods), Holly and Brian Cumberworth of Farmhouse Remnants and enjoyed talking with them.
Sharing some photos of the many interesting things we saw today.
