Outside Window Inside, Class area
**Important note: We will be closed Friday the 15th** Back on Saturday the 16th!
Have you seen our new window display…for summer? Only a tiny bit late, but it’s a welcome sight nonetheless. Soon enough we’ll be trimming the tree and hanging the mistletoe. But for now, we’re enjoying the bright pinwheels made from artisanal papers.
The last few weeks have been a whirl – between having a very succuessful ‘thank you’ sale for our neighbors (and everyone else who wandered in!) and meeting a bunch of new artists. We’ve also accepted a number of them into our shop, and will be sharing their work in coming posts. Here is one: Lacquer boxes by Susan de la Cerda:
We also welcomed Frida of Frida’s Fancy’s colorful wrap rings, Peggy Schmitz’s elegant statement bracelets, Linda Rolen’s yard art and upcycled table top pieces; Traci Hutton’s adorable soft dolls and zipper pins, plus aprons, oven mitts and towels by the team of Susan and Nancy of Out of our Mind. Also Samantha Abedin’s beautiful throw pillows, dog beds and Big Boy Bones, and Dammit Dolls; Rosemarie Zartman’s wildly colorful necklaces, Carmen Aberasturi’s clay and glass bird dishes, and will soon be adding Maria of Syd Justice Jewelry to our mix as well. Did we forget to mention hand beaded bracelets by Kimberley Moore and Kimberley Brown?!
Meanwhile, classes!! This little votive beauty was gold leafed by a student in Saturday’s glass class. We also did some terrific Mercury silvered votives. Amazing how well that process worked, but I recommend doing it outside as the fumes are quite bedazzling to the brain cells.
