There is something ethereal about these faces. Enjoy.
Have a wonderful weekend. See you back next week.
Cost: Most slate roofs are expensive, running between $15 and $30 per square foot installed. This figure is at least five times more than conventional roofing materials. However, a slate roof can last 150 years or more — at least five times longer than a conventional roof.
Have I convinced you ? Then please call me so that I can be a part of birthing a new slate baby. You can name it.

The headliners for Southern Makers were famous Alabamian Apparel Designers Natalie Chanin and Billy Reid. Both, in recent years, have moved their operations home to Florence, Alabama from New York and have embraced their roots as the world has embraced them.
He did a great job of helping people get a sense of what his real stores feel like. They are all decorated like houses in buildings made to feel old with lots of brick, art, family relics etc. You’ve never met anyone more laid back. Makes me wonder what he’s like when he’s stressed. Does he ever get stressed? Surely.
This was my very favorite “stage prop” that he used.
They covered a long table and said, “Ducks in a row.” So cute.
This little one thought so, too.
Cute peeps with peeps.
Natalie’s store was next door.
If you aren’t familiar with her work, her garments are all handcrafted using quilting stitches and they are some of the softest things you will ever touch. Read her fascinating storyhere.
They both gave lectures or taught seminars.
It was great to see some really young folks in this seminar learning a trade.
Natalie’s daughter was very patient through it all.
Then there were the local favorites:
Clowning around with Mark Dauber.
My favorites of his work change so rapidly I call them the Dauber Dailies.
Here is today’s:
Dr.Robert Parker and his hand carved bowls
And some great work by the gals down at Gear!
So from start to finish I would give it an A.
As some came to mingle
some came to ponder apparently. tee hee
Some came to be inspired.
Some learned to print the old fashioned way.
And others just enjoyed an afternoon together.
For me, it was a whole lotta all of the above.
I was inspired. I learned. I saw lots of friends. I hopefully contributed.
It doesn’t get any better than that.
So here’s my shadow bidding you adieu and sayin’
as I say goodbye to my own friends.
M.R. I adore you and I always giggle when I see Greg’s eyes disappear every time he laughs. You two help to make the South great.
It’s a wrap!

ShareIt was a busy Saturday.
