A Magical Wind Blows Through It

(Click on the photos for extreme inspiration)

You know you're in for a treat when you open the weathered door and find too much glitter at your feet to ever be swept away.

The wind blew as we drove the windy roads into the heart of Port Costa, CA. Wendy Addison's Theatre of Dreams is a favorite place to go be inspired.

Soak it all in, and wait for the sugar plums to begin their dance in your head.

Wendy's new line is a circus so colorful I can hear the calliope play. (I bet these joyful cutouts and have a party in there when the lights turn off and everyone goes home.) And you can now buy her famous glass glitter in every color of the rainbow to use on your own dreamy projects.

She is always a gracious host, but this weekend she was inviting everyone to step into her workshop next door and make a tag on her printing press, and...

to see her new handmade book

and to peek at the implements of HER inspiration:

Good-bye Theatre of Dreams until next time: Fri. and Sat. Dec. 4 & 5, and Fri. and Sat. Dec 11 & 12th. Go HERE for more information.
