Craft Night - Painting Pots

On a balmy Tuesday evening we hold craft night at our cottage in Menlo Park. For the evenings craft activity we painted garden terra cotta pots of various sizes. Martha and Cameron arrived first and then Sheila and Georgia. Later Gretchen arrived with Kathy and Bill. We had a nice evening painting, catching up on the latest news, and sharing our recent vacation stories. Toby made a delicious white bean soup and served it with a loaf of warm bread. He also baked an artichoke dish from artichokes we picked from the garden... yum.
