Witness the Wonder of Color!   Trunk show November 8

Linda Nickerson and Susan Morgan bring their mutual sensibilities to their wonderfully colorful works;  Susan in quilting and Linda in glass painted ornaments.

We’ll host them both in house on Saturday, November 8 from 11:00 am till 5:00 pm.

Susan Morgan and Linda Nickerson collage

Susan Morgan (SEM Custom Designs) states that her work is aimed at promoting literacy, starting at the earliest age and in the most comfortable place… in the home.  “When one can associate warmth and love with reading, children will develop a fondness for this very basic life skill that will bring them great joy and success in the years to come.”   Snuggly readers are happy readers!

Linda Nickerson is a painter with a modern bent.  She has found a great way to apply her style to create fun and functional holiday art.  You have to see her ornaments to fully appreciate the play of bright colors that blend *inside* the blown glass balls.
Whimsical and delightful and utterly collectible!_____________________________________________________________________

Soft and Adorable meet Shiny and Street Smart!     Trunk show  November 22

Patti Haskins and Syd Justice (Maria Donaldson).  Crochet and sewn critters meets mixed metals in one fabulous day!

Says Patti about herself and her work, “I’m a self-taught artist and my work reflects my love of animals and my goofy sense of humor. Whether crocheted, sewn, painted, or computer generated, chances are the subject matter I portray will be animal. Most likely, cat or dog.”

Maria has a slightly different approach with her jewelry.  “The Syd Justice line is a hip and modern look that blends style elements of rock, jazz, rockabilly, and motorcycling with a sense of Native American. The cuffs are hand crafted and cut using only the finest leather, American made silver conchos, exotic skins of cobra, python and stingray. Each piece is designed to be distinctive, bold, unique and one of a kind. By using each of those elements, I have created a style that is uniquely Americana”
