Valentine's Day Report

On Valentine's Day I went to my friend Barb's house for a meeting about Art Fayre. Our committee is planning the art show that takes place in June at the Glengarry Pioneer Museum. Outside her house the deer were grazing.

Inside, the meeting wrapped and we switched hats and started making Valentine artist trading cards and drinking wine.

My silly ATCs were men's torsos torn from the pages of a movie magazine. I added rubber stamped "tattoos" and heart and rose stickers.

Others in the group did more sophisticated ATCs. One gal did detailed cut out hearts with a mesh fabric behind it and another did pop-ups. One set was a play on kids' valentines juxtaposed with adult bodies. All very clever and fun.

Barb made these psychedelic heart cupcakes.

And a brownie with heart-shaped sprinkles all over it.

Life is short, eat dessert first, right?

When I got to Richard's later in the day, he had prepared an amazing supper: sautéed lamb chops sitting on chili polenta with a pistachio-lemon crumb. It was a lovely Valentine's Day!
