When Lisa left for her demo, I started thumbing through my emails dating back a week, and I came across one that peaked my interest. Photographer, Karin Rosenthal, was having an open house. Hmmmm... Karin awarded one of my pieces in a show at the South Shore Art Association last year. The least I can do is attend her open house, check out her fine work, and eat her out of house and home. I did all three in true professional fashion. I do like her work, though, so it was a treat to roam about the house contemplating a true artist. I also had the opportunity to speak with her about appearing on LensArt: the Fine Art of Photography; more about that in a future post.
Before Karin's, we stopped at a home in Belmont to pick up a generous Victorian donation given us by a friend and an admirer. When I say generous, I mean generous. Two large boxes full of select victorian finery, and a smaller box containing a really old ladies hat. Lisa and I are planning on opening the boxes on an episode of All Things Victorian that I hope to film this coming weekend. We'll all be surprised at the same time.
When we finally got home a little after 4pm, we noticed that our neighbor - Sandy Bay Historical Society - was having a little party. Yeeeeeaaaaaah.... another open house!!! As I always save a little extra room for just such a surprise occasion like this, we decided to pop in. Just being neighborly, after all. Anyway, it, too, was a treat. The history of Sandy Bay before my eyes, not to mention another table full of treats. We got there a little late, but still had enough time to time travel a bit. I'll not be so sluggish in my return.
All in all it was a pretty good day. Good night all.
