All About Passions

Gather Mini

I had the pleasure of having in my home for 4 days Ms Carol Hart.  Carol and I met at Shutter Sisters and I felt a wonderful connection with this women.  I visited her home last July and had a beautiful stay with her and her lover Brian.  We went to Kim and Xanthe's Gather in Sunset Beach last Oct.  I knew I wanted our time together to be a little Gather, with setting up some still life's and having Terri Porter up from Phoenix on Saturday.  My house is small but we managed to all fit in with working still life's through out my house.  Such fun was this day.  On Sunday we all went to Desert Botanical Gardens down in Phoenix and that will be in another post.

Carol made a beautiful lunch for us Paella and she made a little still life for us with the garlic she used. More on the Paella later.

A Strawberry Gallette I served at dinner that didn't get photographed. So I made it again after Carol left just so I could photograph it. Of course I had to eat it too all by myself.

In the afternoon we took our images into my computer room and we all sat around a table and downloaded our images from the morning and played in LR.  So fun was this day with some good pals.
