Hobbit Goes Black and White

   Posted by: crazyBobcat    in Daily

hobbitOur delightful and beautiful Hobbit came to visit at Scarborough Faire but once this season. She had in tow a young man celebrating his 21st birthday. I am hopeful he remembers the day.

We miss you, Hobbit!

 

Cheers.

Next to the (in)famous Rahr Brewery is a beautiful old brick building. I don’t rightly know what’s in there, but I do enjoy looking at, and taking photos of, it.

Cheers.

Driving Through Lightning

22 July 2010

At first, neither of us could remember precisely where we were going to or returning from when I snapped this photo. As it’s my only photo from this day, I struggled with the memories until I figured it out. I worked in the glass studio during the day, and Kyle worked online. The plan was to take Kyle to dinner at Jose’s Blue Sombrero in Racine because we could delay no longer in introducing him to the fabulous guacamole and the immense choice of customizable margaritas. The weather turned nasty between the planning of dinner and the trip up there, and a number of our party decided to stay home. Something about tornado warnings and such .. psha! We were undaunted … there was tequila to be had! Kelly met us there, since she was already out and about, and we had a great dinner, with the stormy skies all around us. After dinner, (we’d been inside for much of the rain) Kyle and I drove downtown to meet friends for a drink at Ivanhoe’s—our first visit there since the non-smoking law went into effect. And, wow! What a difference new carpeting, a coat of paint and a good cleaning can make! We were very impressed.

The awful photo of the day today was taken on the way home from our evening in Racine. There was beautiful, nearly constant lightning, but I was unable to capture any of it.

Fabulous Chenille Brocade

11 July 2010

First weekend of faire is over … my paperwork is mostly done, and I am off to bed. But, in order to not disappoint myself, here I am, posting to the KRuMB, first.

My photo is of Chad Fabulous’ beautiful doublet he bought from us a couple of years ago. We don’t still see this brocade … and he wants me to find fabric to match or coordinate with it. I took a couple of photos of it—my only photos of the day. Sigh.

Cool Button

Cool Button!

3 April 2010

I have no idea if I would be half so impressed with this button if I weren’t so sleep-deprived! It’s a unique and beautiful silver metal button—I only had one—of unknown origin. It was the perfect thing to fasten Dan’s unique and asymmetrical new doublet.

His outfit is all done, now. He picked it up tonight. He also took away with him the new bodice I just made for Brittney, so it can be handed to her in the morning for her to wear. Dear Glenda, it seems won’t be making it to rehearsal tomorrow—she is caring for an ailing elderly mom—so her skirts and bodice are still hanging here at our house. Sleeves and a chemise are all that remain of my work for her, and then it’ll be full throttle on completing the queen’s new ensemble.

In the meantime, I’m going to actually sleep tonight. Starting right now.
