Yes, it was a wonderful Wednesday. A couple of weeks ago, I wrote to Celeste, seeking her help in selling my kitchen cart-turned taboret. She has over six hundred followers and I figured a word from her would send at least a few hundred inquiries my way.
She responded with her usual enthusiasm for fellow bloggers and friends, but went a step further, offering to buy it herself. Her offer, my acceptance and subsequent arrangements for pick-up seemed like an excellent opportunity to have a party. Michele and I thought we might also invite our great friends, Margret Short (nationally known artist and four time Salmagundi Club award winner, www.margretshort.com), her husband, Dave and our dear friend and neighbor here in the building, artist Pat Demartini. You've been seeing Pat's portrait on this blog of late and she was kind enough to bring it with her.
So, yesterday afternoon, after loading the cart-taboret into Dave and Celeste's truck, we all gathered to have some wine and other beverages, plenty of food and a whole lot of great conversation, with art taking center stage, as you might expect. We hoped for a spectacular sunset, but instead only had city lights and rain clouds, however nothing could dampen the good spirits this fine day.

I hope you had a great day, too.
