Best Weekend Ever Part 1 + WINNERS!!

This whole weekend has been amazing so far, full of art, antiques, great friends, good buys, and beautiful weather!

So last night was part 1 of my most amazing weekend.  I got to go to an art opening for an artist named Joshua Bienko who recreates master works on the bottoms of Christian Louboutin shoes!

Now some of you know that my shoe obsession love interest obsession (lets just be honest shall we) is intense and spans the gambit from Converse to Manolo's, and the appearance of Louboutin's red soles just walked straight into my heart.  Here are some of his works.

And my personal favorite!

Sorry for the bad photos as they were taken with my iphone with 1 hand because my other hand was holding one of the best cocktails ever from Flemings!

I love this whole idea because I think art can come in any medium whether it is cloth and quilts or paint and $1000 shoes! I loved the art, the event, the food, and getting to wear my tallest stilettos and not get funny looks because I was wearing 5" over the top shoes. LOL!


And now time for the winners of my blog's first birthday!

    Looks like a fun event. Even when I was "young & hip" I don't think I was hip enough for those shoes. Thanks for asking me though & for sharing the pics.
