Vintage Photo Friday - Crazy Auntie Style

Last night our WeHo SnB group met at Barnes & Noble at The Grove to see and hear our ol' friend, Laurie Perry, read from her latest book, "Home Is Where the Wine Is: Making the Most of What You've Got One Stitch (and Cocktail!) at a Time." It was such a fun evening. We've all missed Laurie. She used to attend our SnB get-togethers, but for the past couple of years she's been working furiously on her writing. Laurie has promised to return to our future meetings.
The new book is a collection of essays....funny, pithy and embued with Laurie's special insight and humor.
Many of us brought our yarny projects

After she read a chapter, we asked a few questions and then everyone lined up to have their books signed by our very blonde, rock-star friend!

The blondeness of the evening was startling!
Laurie and Molly


Vivian (yet ANOTHER blonde) helped Laurie sign books

Uh oh...did you think I forgot Vintage Photo Friday? Not quite. I "borrowed" a pic from Laurie's blog. This is one of her "hairstory" pix from the 80's.

Partial Mohawk?! We prefer the current, flowing blondeness!
Much success to you, Laurie Doll on your latest tome.

Hee! I read both of your blogs and was really amused to see you in her picture of the audience from *her* blog post about it. Between this post and that one, I feel like I was practically there! (In a vaguely creepy, across-the-internet sort of way...)

Laurie did a great job last night and I am looking forward to reading her book on my ski vacation.

I'm so sorry I missed the book signing. What a great turn out and how wonderful of the WeHo SnB to be so totally supportive.

That really was a lot of fun. And Vivian is such a hoot! She really gave CAP a run for her money. Thanks for the pix, and have a great weekend!
