Pop up this Saturday!

Chances are…

The local church is holding their annual carnival this weekend… I’ve added to the prize table loot with a mini-collection of summery bead earrings in white coral, rhodochrosite (pink), and amethyst (purple), $66.00 value tucked in a little terracotta pot. But there’s lots of great choices: restaurant gift certificates, florals, beachy & summery baskets, shiney […]

There to Here

Finally, a chance to clean out.  We posted our garage sale ad with this photo of fun vintage folding chairs leading the way.  Success!  A very nice young gal showed up toot sweet for her choice of chairs.  Why not the whole batch? I asked… turns out, she was tasked with locating props for a performance […]

Truth and Beauty

This past week has been a whirlwind here, polishing up the details on some holiday events and having a welcome chance to meet and greet some old & new friends.  The trunk show at the Store at MAM, now in the rearview mirror, was a lovely evening with over 700 attending Montclair Art Museum‘s December […]

Matisse is in the house

It’s here!  The paper cut outs.  I am hatching a plan to go, it’s been a long, long while but I will never forget the sense of wonder these amazing works impart.  The story behind them only adds to the experience.  Highly recommended for anyone in need of hope, or a reason to believe in […]


St Hubert’s annual Canine Cotillian, a festive vegetarian extravagance, happens this week!  April 11 to be exact.  Here’s my contribution: Years ago I made a ring like this, not quite the same, but close, a giant hunk of tigereye set in silver with secret cat eyes hidden on the back of the handmade bezel. It was […]
