Hi All,
I finally got home last night. I took the long way home and stopped by Lake Mead, Hoover Dam, the Grand Canyon and a meteor crater site. I love our National Parks.
This was my first Compact Collector's Convention and I had a blast. It was so much fun to meet the folks on this site.
Woody & Lisa had the very best solids for sale. And Woody is the King when it comes to the solids. Plus, he's a really great guy, I love you, Woody.
A huge thanks to Jack & Lisa for bringing us all together. You two are the BEST! I haven't heard any talk about Miss Lisa's shoes and handbag. So, I'll start. They were adorable. It was all I could do not to take them off her feet. LOL! Lisa, we need the shoe cam. laugh.gif
I got to pal around with my buddy Katita. We went Hotel Hopping. As many as our tired selves could see. Remember what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas...........and we've got the photos to prove it. laugh.gif tongue.gif biggrin.gif blink.gif ohmy.gif
I got to know Nancy & Lewis the "Great Scots". We had a spot of tea at the Mandalay Bay. A girls got to have a tea break when it comes to shopping for solids. We went joy riding to the Show Time Mall, the CCS and the LV sign.
Katita has a fantastic collection, we want photos now that you can use your camera. tongue.gif
I was very impressed with the convention and all of Alvin & Roslyn's hard work in making it so much fun. The EL Forum shop wa beautiful. I have photos of the Brunch. Well, you know me I have photos of all the convention, plus. The Jay Strongwater Store was devine and so was the Judith Leiber Store.
Now, for my 2 cents on the new solids. The Pink Lady is cute and a LV exclusive, but it is a matchbox car with solid perume. To me it's not the great all time solid. I bought it because I was at the convention knew I would kick myself when I got home if I didn't get it. I voted for I like it.
It was exciting to see all the new solids in one place. They are beautiful and colorful. Some are better than other and the NM solids are quite large. I don't like the Dragon but, I like the Lanterns. And they are huge. It was a real treat to get my hands on all the solids and compacts. The CCS had Taj Mahal, Rollercoaster, some Strongwaters & GD. The prices were over $130-$40 off. So, I'm going to wait on some of the solids.
All in all this was a great experience. I had the time of my life. LOL! laugh.gif laugh.gif
Sorry this was way too long................

Erica - Liberace was a piano player who REALLY DID DRESS LIKE THAT MAN IN THE PHOTO - he's an impersonator. Liberace in all his glitz was the definition of Las Vegas and the Liberace museum is in Las Vegas. He died in the 80's but his spirit lives on.

Katita&Lisa,

thank you so much for your explanations. I've even looked up my dictionary because I thought it is a 'general noun'! ph34r.gif

Thank you again!

It's nice to be able to put faces to the names we've known for so long. smile.gif

We hope to be able to go to the convention next year and meet everyone in person. (We're still jealous sad.gif )

Thanks to all for your kind and generous comments. I love to take photos and share them. It is my pleasure.
Hi Pam,
I finally dragged myself up and outta bed. laugh.gif blink.gif ohmy.gif
Katita's floral photos from Wynn's are great. The flower balls I'm sure there's a proper name for them were outstanding. Some had orchids in them. I have several photos and when things settle down I'll post them with "find the solids".
