weekend shopping, part 1

it was a wonderful weekend
and early birthday celebration
for ludgera and myself
we decided to take a drive down to rochester, ny
and visit the fine art store
when you google encaustic supplies
you get to their shop
when we arrive we were lucky to meet
cathryn bevier their encaustic specialist
i bought several enkaustikos products
which i'm looking forward to trying out
slick wax for cleaning your brushes
and xd wax medium used to create a glass-like topcoat
i also got some metal eyedroppers and a slotted brush
above a shot from the local coffee house-- java
very cool place with tons of art everywhere

after the art store we ended up at
hobby lobby where i found some cheap bezels
and some christmas stuff
(yes i said christmas!!!)
next stop joann's for some yarn,
crochet book and quilters iron
and a quick espresso for lu at barnes and nobel
and we where on the road to bufffalo
well sort of.........
we missed the cutoff to the highway and
figured we would just take the country roads back!!
the skies were blue and no traffic

we found several yard and barn sales
and lots of antique shops
at gibsonville
we met owner nancy walcott
who specializes in caning, rush and splint seats
i found 3 rusted tins filled with metal parts,
hinges, door pulls and hooks
plus some really cool barbwire

and at the flee market the next day
i will post more tomorrow

Oh, I wish that I had known that you were going -- I would have had you pick up some things for me -- let me know when you go next time :)
