Pure Gorgeousness...

The Gilded Nest Art Event was held at Shea Fragoso and Debbie Murray's strikingly beautiful home.  The mother/daughter duo (with an itty bitty bit of help from Shea's husband ; - }) turned a very old Church into their private residence.  You really have to see it to believe it.  I had seen pictures but never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined what it truly looked like in real life.  I am so thankful I had the opportunity to spend 4 wonderful days surrounded by the beauty of this place.  From the gorgeous stained glass windows, restored by Debbie herself, to the unbelievably fantastic kitchen....words cannot tell you.

A view from the far end of the massive living room, looking towards the kitchen.
This shot was taken from their studio that overlooks the living room.
The living room (or a small portion of it anyway)

A peek at the kitchen, once the altar of the Church.

If you have the opportunity to attend one of their events (and a little gilded bird told me there was one coming in October) should do so.  No detail forgotten, surroundings that will knock your socks off and wonderful wonderful women to bond with.

Watch for the their studio to be featured in Where Women Create...the winter edition, I believe.  It is TO DIE FOR....but I'm not going to post any pictures as I don't want to spoil the fun.  Also, watch for their kitchen in the new, upcoming publication Where Women Cook.

To Die for
...I'm telling you...
you won't be disappointed.

Your pictures are beautiful. It really is a treat to experience art in that place. You made it very special yourself.

Colleen, we were all just blown away, weren't we?!! Your class had a lot to do with such an amazing event too! I have fallen in love with paperclay now, and have been playing around with it! Suzie
