Holiday Craft Show

I walked around a "Women of Faith" church holiday crafts bazaar and bake sale in Naples.


Mary Lou was standing with some other women, with a never-ending friendly smile on her face.
If I didn't already have two grandmothers, I would have asked her to be mine.



Linda does beach paintings in addition to making Christmas ornaments.  She paints these glass bulbs from the inside.  They have to be turned every 20 minutes so the  paint doesn't pool.



Joanne makes "comfort dolls" from socks.  Her husband keeps her company.



Mary is the teacup lady.



Anne retired two months ago and now spends her time making items like this night light
 from shells.  She is so happy to be retired that she glows.

Anna looks young to be retired. The ladies all look so pleased to be there at this event. Nice portraits, Jack!

Lovely portraits. I agree about Mary-Lou, she looks like the kind of gran anyone would be blessed to have.
