Up and Running

Mellwood Antiques and Interiors opened in March of 2014.  It has been a success from day one.  This winter my mother can tend to her booth from Marco Island, Florida.  I even got caught up in the excitement and have a small booth and a case.  I have my jewelry in the case and think I can get my loyal art show peeps to shop at Mellwood in between art shows.  So far my plan has not been working so I filled my case with other things along with the jewelry.  My booth will launch next month when I have a chance to finesse and paint.  I have been a collector all my life and this should be a good way to edit my collections.

Mellwood Antiques & Interiors will Open In March

This year the Goss Avenue Antiques and Interiors Closed its doors February.  My mother who had sizeable real estate at Goss opted to move to Mellwood Antiques and Interiors.  It has been a long hard winter painting and finessing the new space.  She has most of the large furniture moved.   New mall is wired and her chandeliers are hung and lit.   Soon as the construction dust settles she will unwrap all her furniture and retrieve boxes of lamps, paintings, etc...from two storage units.   Rumor had it earlier in the week that this weekend the mall would open so we are scrambling.

Happy Family / Marti McGinnis

This past summer I was next to Marti McGinnis at Art in Speed Park.  Marti is such a talent.  She does Whimsy better than anyone!  I have featured Marti's booth and Art Car in earlier posts.  So I was very excited when Marti wanted my painted horse necklace and ear rings.  Then she or it was probably me who said Wanna Trade!!!!  I told her that I LOVE everything she makes so she can send me anything. 

Last week she posted this adorable painting on face book and I loved it but didn't realize it was her impression of my Happy Family until it arrived in the mail yesterday.  Thank You Marti!!!  Every time I look at this wonderful painting it makes me smile.  That it is your impression of me and my family makes me smile more!  You Are The One!

Eternal Love/ Chalk Art/ Sam Alexander

Happy Valentine's Day! 
Sam has been reading about King Tut so his chalk board greeting to me this morning  was inspired by the King.  He even included our royal dogs.  Note that Bear and Kele are more robust than Zo.

Installation Art / Robbie Moriarty

In our home there is a tiny hall.  It gets a lot of traffic with 3 dogs.  I needed something that was tall and narrow.  I had the head collage.  Just needed to make a body out of found objects.
