Two Brown Shoes at a Trunk Show

25 Nov

This time they match, but who’s looking, right? So. The trunk show yesterday was fun. From 11 til 4 there was a steady stream of folk interested enough to face the wind and cold. Nice people. Interested. Interesting. Mostly happy people. But that wasn’t a requirement–all we asked was a can of food to be donated to the local food bank.   I was so busy yakking and pouring mulled cider that I really did a lousy job of documenting the event.  And the pics I do have, well, exposure was obviously an issue.

Sample of my sister’s weaving on the right–in fact it was the “Jennifer Dusic Trunk Show”–scarves, runners, tea towels–flying out the door!

Mother of Grandson. My daughter. Many handles. And she’s hard to pin down. But easier than the cousin with the one blue suede shoe leaving the frame.
And finally, here’s the wonder dress. My new celebrating the holiday’s dress. trunk11

and here. This is what saved my butt. I made cards from several of my cloths. Mounted photos to heavy cardstock. Sold them for $3 each. These pics aren’t great, but you get the idea.

    I love the photo of you in your new dress with the good big pockets what a fabulous looking woman you arewith all your wonderful work around you! & the cards look good! The next thing is getting the work in a local gallery!

    Wonder dress indeed. Seeing you in this quietly stunning oh so celebratory dress you look as if you stepped out of your beautiful cloths to herald in the deep meaning of the season, the coming of the Solstice. There is such a rich and special sense of earthy splendor!.

      oh, that is so appealing–the thought that i stepped out of one of the cloths. now to figure out how to step back in. and the coming of the Solstice. yes. this is definitely the — searching for the word– the back to the womb time i think. turning inward. looking. listening. sensing. being. thank you Marti –your comments always give me something to think a bout.

    The show was wonderful…including your hand dyed dress covered with your art! You have become, in this last year, a serious artist as has your sister Jennifer. I hope you both can take in this reality….I’m really proud of you! Elizabeth

    Oh Patricia, you look so beautiful in your dress and with your cloths. I knew once the work was done and it got going that you’d have a good time. Thanks for sharing the photos.

      hi Beth. i’m very happy to hear from you this a.m. and count your comment here as another blessing in life. much love to you

    It’s taken me so long to get here, so sorry. what strikes me when I see you is how comfortable you seem with how it has all happened, how it as happened, how it needed to.

    • Patricia December 3, 2013 at 10:09 am #

      hi Jude. wonderful to have you here, whenever–sooner later it’s all the same. i guess the operative word in your comment is “needed”–needed to happen. this thing has a life of it’s own. i feel like i’m hanging out to see where it goes. much love to you.
