I had such a nice weekend as my title implies. I mentioned in my last blog my friend Lori came down from NY state for the bead show and it was so great to spend time with her, and to make a new friend, Kelley Wenzel. Any friend of Lori's has got to be great, and Kelley sure is. She is so easy to talk to and to get to know, and she has the same passion about making her beautiful lampwork beads as Lori does about jewelry. Both are amazingly talented.
Friday we met for dinner, headed back to their hotel and then spent some time chatting over dessert, and sharing a glass of wine. Kelley made an amazing cake and brought it with her (I'm waiting for her to blog the recipe). What could be better - good company, wine and a Mississippi Mud Cake!
Here's Lori and me -
and Kelley and me - They had a spectacular day at the big bead show which I did not attend, but we decided to meet Saturday night for a movie and see Julie and Julia - I loved it - a wonderful story, inspiring and heart-warming, and very funny too. Meryl Streep can do anything - wow she is amazing! She really nailed this role and captured Julia Child so well. I highly recommend the movie - you won't be disappointed.
