Savannas Preserve Craft Show.....Uncharacteristically Cold!

Unseasonably windy...bitterly cold...OK, so we were only in South Florida, but still, it wasn't just me. Everyone was freezing. Even people from up north...Really (see, I'm all bundled up). And, I didn't have any Starbucks. And, I had to sit in one place, selling my favorite necklace. But, it was Valentine's Day, Sweetheartfest, and, as you can see, it is a beautiful State Park. And I had an amazing hair day. But, it was hard...Really...

OK, I can't wait to do it again!

Featuring Beautiful Bookmarks by Joyous Treasures!

When I saw Johanna's bookmarks, I thought they were beautiful!  For those of you who know my story, I love to read, and so does Johanna!  She also loves to make Crochet Jewelry,Crochet Bookmarks,Crochet Pincushions, and Crochet Hair accessories,
she also plays piano, and, of course, loves to read.  All her bookmarks are so great, but I think these one is my favorites...


How touching is it that Johanna carries on the legacy of her grandmother's talents in her own works! She says she likes to crochet flowers and butterflies, and other things that remind her of nature. Her grandmother was a great crocheter, and she left her many things when she passed away.  She says that she is always working on new projects created with her grandmother's supplies to keep and remember her by. ...and she even wears her beads all the time! Keep up the beautiful work! Check her out at her Etsy shop and keep an eye out for new bookmarks coming in March! or on her blog

My Necklace was Featured in an Etsy Treasury,

Called Lush!

In case you are unfamiliar with Etsy, one of the most coveted places to promote your work is in an Etsy Treasury.  A Treasury is a collection of items, curated by an Etsy Artisan with a keen eye and a heavy dose of patience, and they are very hard to get.  Loveartworks curated this dynamic Treasury, of which I am a featured artist.  See her lovely Repose ceramic bowl below!

Armchairs Worthy of My Studio

In my quest to feature chairs that appealed to my sensibilities and that I felt represented what was important to me, I found these representations, by very talented and generous Etsy artisans.  I hope you like them as much as I do. This Item Has a Very Cute Description and Benefits Cancer Research. 

It is done by loveartworks, and says ahhhhhhhhh...

Take a load off.....Have a seat....Rest your weary bones....Relax and stay awhile...repose.....

This is a unique black, white and 1 color "doodle" bowl, born out of a need to SIMPLIFY.  The artist says it is like a warm little hug that you hold in your hands....ORGANIC COMFORT BOWLS!  The inside of the bowl is a stunning deep reddish/orange with a black curlicue! On the outside is 5 little chairs: a super comfortable recliner, 2 different straight-backed wooden kitchen chairs, a thoroughly modern Eames design, and a caned rocker! Underneath... the word REPOSE and signed and dated. It measures about 6.5" in diameter and is 2 1/4" deep.  All proceeds from the sale of this bowl will be donated to the American Cancer Society for 'etsyprojectembrace' in support of fellow Etsy seller, Laura. Proceeds go to charity, and you know how much that means to me! This is a good sized bowl! I thought it would be great for my Nanny's cabbage soup (if I could ever find the recipe)!  There is nothing more comforting than that!


This Print is So Sweet and Benefits a Homeless Shelter! 

This one is a little print that was made to honor the Wellhouse Community and Homeless Shelter in Grand Rapids, Michigan. This cause is near and dear to my heart!  All proceeds from these prints are donated directly to Wellhouse, done by theantibride! It is a limited edition, hand-pulled linocut print. The print comes unframed, measures 4.5 x 5.5", and is run on white archival paper.
