Adorable Betsy George and the cute guy she married
Tonight there was a bridal show at Mellwood. There were some girls in my store discussing how everything is booked 2 years in advance. I started thinking about my own wedding where Sam and I eloped, Sent postcards notifying family and put "Going to the Chapel" on our answering machine. My only regret is that I didn't know how to save all the messages people left on our answering machine. But here's the funny part....we were planning on eloping in June. My drivers license needed to be renewed by the end of May. So while there I asked for a marriage license too. Well the woman behind the counter said..."Honey you can't just come in here and pick up a marriage license alone...you have to have person your going to marry with you!!" She acted as if I just wanted the license handy in case... so maybe I could trick some unsuspecting person into marriage. I encouraged the girls in my store to elope and save the $ for a down payment on a home. But cautioned that unless things have changed in 24 years....you better take your fiance with you to pick up the license.
I have been interested in ART all of my life. I studied art in college and opened a porcelain restoration business in Louisville which combined my interest in art with my appreciation and love of detail. I have always been a collector of many things, amassing hundreds of thousands of buttons, trinkets, charms, bijoux, beads, found objects, and all sorts of fun things. I currently produce a line of whimsical art jewelry which I wholesale and retail across the country. I've been married to Sam for 20 plus years and we have 3 rescued Black Chow Chow's. Bear, KeLe, and Zoee my children with FUR! I will be sharing my various collections, art shows, artists, friends etc. And any thing else I think is cool will be in this Blog.
