QAL Escaping the Rain

16 May 2009

It’s almost a tradition—every year I take a photo of the beautiful girls of Queen Anne’s Lace, singing their hearts out—-in the rain. This year, there has been so much rain, it’s simply not fun or novel any more. Today, when the downpour was particularly insistent, the girls politely asked me (and of course, I jumped at the chance!) and decided that all five of the folks sitting in the rain, waiting for their 11 o’clock show could follow them into our shoppe, and listen and watch them sing under cover. It always makes for a wonderfully intimate show, and it sometimes drives a few sales, as well. I snapped a few photos while they were singing and I like this one, mostly because you can actually see all eight talented women at once!

The rain did finally quit, and by evening, the temperature and the humidity level had both become quite comfortable.  We hosted our third annual Jewelry Trunk Show for Miss Allyson Giesen tonight—complete with a great selection of wine and cheese and crackers and stuff for dinner.  Yummy food and drink, and sparklies!  Woo hoo!
