Thank You Whimzy!

Whimzy Halloween Display

I received notification last week that I was a Glitterfest Lottery winner! It's an incredible art show. Held in Fall and Spring, Glitterfest is juried -all the participating artists are elite I was excited to discover I had won!

To claim my prize, I headed over to Whimzy located in charming Old Town Tustin and spent a few hours in eye candy heaven. Imagine walking into a storybook land filled with pretty and magical items. Glitter ornaments, crowns galore, and along with many old and familiar friends--60's Santa mugs, wooden angel ornies, bingo cards... I ended up purchasing some great vintage pieces along with items to create my own artwork.  

My prize? A beautiful pendant necklace by Robin Dudley Howe My first soldering class was taught by Robin, which gives this gift additional significance. Robin used a beveled glass overlay which reflects the light in a myriad of dancing patterns. I love my prize!
