Fun at Holly Jolly

Last Friday night, everyone in Black Mountain came to see the fun, eat the sweets and drink the hot libations...and listen to and watch the entertainers (all volunteers!) (And  to stop in shops and the Center for the Arts to purchase gift items!)

Looking down from the third level to the young people preparing for their performance outside the Center for the Arts.  The photos in the Clay Sales Room are by myself, which was  open from 5-8 pm.

Thanks to Sarah Vekasi for most of these photos of the outdoor fun.  Having a warm evening probably helped us have big crowds!

 (My clay work is in the far corner with a yellow cookie jar barely visible over a man in a coat's shoulder. You'd have to know it to see it!) I love how a quilt is being worked by volunteers almost every time the gallery is open.

Adding to meme at Our World Tuesday...can't get their image link to work yet though!
