Oh, how grand it was!

Hi friends,

As promised, here are some images from the Grand Opening Bash for Hazel Tree Interiors. The evening was a heck of a lot of fun. A whole lot of people came by to celebrate with us and see the new digs that night. Thanks to all who joined us, we appreciate your support!

OK, so this upside-down picture was actually taken this way by my friend Peg…it made us laugh so why change it? That’s the fabulous dress my clothing designer made for me for the evening. Vintage fabric from the early 70′s. Loved it!

You may recall that we were on the Akron ArtWalk that evening. The city arranges for the free city trolley to shuttle people from spot to spot during the ArtWalks. Here’s the trolley pulling up with one of the first loads of people who came to visit us that evening.

The featured artist for the opening of Hazel Tree is Ed Cebula. Here he is standing next to one of his beautiful paintings…it sold on our first day open in July, along with two others of his.

We had food and beverages up on the third floor in Jon’s framing studio, along with live music by Jim Marron. A good time was had by all!

It was a special evening made even more special by the fact that my sister and her family were in town from Texas and could be there with us.

If you haven’t had a chance to stop in the Hazel Tree yet we hope you’ll come down and see us soon!
