Our Delightful Visit to the Mosaic Garden

Oh my!  We had a delightful visit to the Mosaic Garden.  Maybe the Vodou deity in charge of weather was happy with us as we had cool and breezy weather.  If was very nice.  There was so much to see.  I could just stand in one place and do a 360 and see wonderful things everywhere!  There were statues and mosaics and flowers and more mosaics and more statues and more flowers.  There was the coolest studio I've ever seen, a well-appointed outhouse, nice dogs who were afraid of Claire (Micah's little dog), a beautiful home with a porch to die for.  There were even chickens from France!  And then there was Wouterina (Riana). 
She is a wonderful lady.    Now I have to go back and take a class.

I'm posting a few of my favorite photos.  There must have been at least a thousand photos taken amongst us so I'd love to see some of you post your favorites.

September 14 Guild Meeting

The September 14, 2011 Guild meeting will be held at Mosaic-on-a-Stick, 595 North Snelling, St. Paul (651)645-6600). Meeting time 6:30-9:30 PM.
This meeting will be our kick-off for our annual Fall Members Show that will be exhibited at Mosaic-on-a-Stick. Setting up the show may begin that evening, but full setup will take place later with an announcement of show and reception dates.
This will be a casual social meeting (just a little business to begin with), giving each member a chance to talk about their work and present it in the competition.
The theme for this year's show is Animals and Nature, and there will be a $50 gift certificate prize (to Mosaic-on-a-Stick) for the members choice award. Members may bring more than one art work for the show, but you must designate which work is in the competition. Members must be present to be eligible to win.
Hope to see everyone there.
