holiday sale highlights

Whew! What a weekend at Camp Cactus! The place was packed to the rafters opening night on Friday. The wine flowed freely, the munchies were consumed, and sales were terrific.

Holiday spirits were high (or maybe it was all the wine)

Everyone seemed to want to support local artists and keep their money in the community.

Thankfully, the rains held off most of the weekend, and though it was really cold, we had a fire going outside as well as inside, and everyone stayed toasty.

All in all it was a great sale, and on behalf of all the artists, I'd like to thank everyone who turned out for it this weekend

and I'm looking forward to writing a big fat check to Oregon Food Bank this week.

Thanks again, and Happy, happy holidays to all!

dan ennis ceramics

Dan just brought these by today.

I love the playful colors and cool designs.

They look even better against a fence or greenery in the backyard...

It was too dark to shoot them outside, but I think they sure look great in my kitchen, too!

even more art!

Beautiful jewelry made of vintage buttons by Edith & Lulu

and bags by Jane Russell (see, I told ya I was making something!)

If you don't live in the Portland, Oregon area and can't get to the sale this weekend, many of these items are available at the artists' on line shops...and click on over to Buenos Burritos today for a giveaway!
