Red Carpet Awards Night Extravaganza

Imagine dressing up in your "Academy Awards" outfit and being whisked away to the most exciting event of the season in a limo. Now picture yourself getting out of the limo to walk the Red Carpet amid the staccato flashes of cameras as paparazzi record every step. Oh, and don't forget to stop a moment so the local press can catch a few words from you on your way in to the awaiting party.

That's what it was like for all of us attending the Red Carpet Awards Ceremony hosted by Lake Oconee Living Magazine last week. There were lots of hors d'oeuvres to eat and wine to drink while we surveyed and made bids on silent auction pieces, and visited with so many of the other guests attending that evening. As winners of the Best Art Gallery category, we were honored with reserved seating during the awards presentation.

It was a fabulous event and it made us appreciate all the more our gift of being voted number one.

Thank you all for your votes...
...you like us, you really like us!!!

Here are some pics from the evening.
