The opening was really fun, even though I was still a sickie. I think you can actually see me clutching a bunch of tissue in my hands in at least one photo from the night! But bunches of friends came, lots of nice people I had never met came, and the cotton candy smell filled the room. Who could ask for more?
To start, here are photos of the paintings and things hanging on the wall, in order from the front-left side of the room to the front-right side:
1)This clustered wall had all the small work on it - the dolls, drawings, etc. (some of which you haven't seen here yet). 2.)Then these three paintings you haven't seen here yet: I'll share proper images of them soon! 3.) The far wall had the big centerpiece/title piece, flanked by the Illustrated Man and the Mouse Quartet paintings. 4.) The left wall had a row of 11"x14" pieces. 5.) The final three hang on the nearest part of the left wall to the entrance.
We were the first ones to get to try out the cotton candy!
There were bunches of little people there (including my favorite little chickens) throughout the night, and it was so fun to see how jazzed they were about the C.C.!
I wore this beautiful rusty-red and cream striped reconstructed dress from the 30's. There aren't really any good photos of it, 'cause honestly, taking photos and having my photo taken weren't things I wanted to do very much of throughout the evening. My main goal was to talk to all the sweet people there and try not to sneeze on any of them!
I had a red wooden box holding a few treasures on a ledge next to the jar of free fortune-telling fish:
And the next day, I had beautiful flowers to smell in my kitchen, courtesy of my sweet Ms. A, right next to two stray cotton-candy cones that were left over at the end of the night.
