International Perfume Bottle Assn Convention

No it did not make me feel bad at all. The image it brought to mind was lovely....just the thing to cheer me up.
This morning I managed to sit out on my sheltered patio area and drink a cup of coffee, the frost was still on the roof tops but the sun was warm on my face. My husband thought I had gone mad..... but I told him I was just desperate.
Like you we have had a lot of high winds this year and they make me crazy as well.
I find them so scary. We live in a Victorian house and I am always checking the roof slates and the Chimney. Last weeks high winds blew all the glass out of one side of my greenhouse.... and they say the weather will be bad again this weekend.
Will summer ever come....
My best wishes to you both........Margaret

You have a good time at the convention and good luck with the collectors group. Wish I could join you but building work on our house is keeping me at home untill the convention in Vegas.
My kind regards to you.

I too wish you all the best at convention especially with the solid collector group. I'll be there in spirit cheering you on. I'm so glad Phyllis will be there too. Horray!
Look forward to your report when you get back home. I'll also be curious to hear if EL did announce at the meeting any of the upcoming 2008 Fall/Holiday solids.

I am keeping my fingers crossed that it will be a new version of the slot machine

So, that's it. The convention next year will be in Albuquerque and I am really excited about that. I love that part of the country and we'll make a real vacation out of it.
I am sure Phyllis will give her update as well..

Obviously I have a much slower recovery time than Woody. There was so much to keep one on the run at the convention I needed to catch my breath. The exhibition hall with all the pretties is, of course, the main attraction. Our Florida Flamingos group wore pink feather boas to the opening of the hall. We "flocked" our friends by adding a few of our feathers to their name tag. In addition there was the collector's market, various seminars and presentations, auctions, round tables, luncheon and annual meeting. And of course, the fun of room hopping seeking treasures. Even though there were not other collectors primarily dedicated to solids there were plenty of solids to be found. As Woody said we both found some we wanted. One of the collectors I met has a collection of 2000 solids. I had a wonderful time and so enjoyed seeing Woody and a lot of other friends. Most members are very happy with the choice for next year. New Mexico sounds like a great place. Hope you all will consider joining in the fun. With Woody's new specially group we can anticipate more emphasis on solids.
