Post Francisco's Farm

Anna Bella poses with the hat she designed at the Kids/Art booth.

Thanks to everyone who came out in the heat to see one of the top 10 shows in the country. The art was outstanding!!!! Sales were great! FF staff pampered all the artists by serving dinner and breakfast each day in air conditioned comfort. I was able to spend the evening catching up with my Goddess friend Jamie. And it was so good seeing my other artist peeps!

Dog Days of Summer

Our new Bear is adorable. He is a bundle of energy. Loves to cuddle. Loves to eat. Loves to go on walks. We love him. He is helping us get over the loss of BearII. We miss our old boy so much. Getting another dog ASAP and naming him Bear has filled the void. Just like Bear II filled the void when we lost Bear I. We will always have a Bear in our life.

Backstage / Wicked / Sewing Center

All you fiber folks will love this....when a broadway show travels they have costume repair dept. Included are samples of all the fabric in the costumes, buttons, acessories, etc...This is the Thread Center that closes up and is on wheels.

Galley M / Fish Plate / Glass Artist Clair Raabe

Clair has a glass studio at Mellwood Arts Center.

Always love seeing Clair and her two adorable doggies who assist her in her studio.

Clair's lovely daughter, Roxanne is also a glass artist and has a clever line of glass jewelry where she makes glass into squiggles like wire designs only in glass.

So glad these talented women relocated in Kentucky to share their glass with the masses.

Cool Clock

Jenny manages to find cool in Cracker Barell...Sweet Sue purchased this clock for her as a housewarming for her home. I thought it was cute...But in Jenny's home it become ultra cool!!!

Jenny Elkins Angelton / Indianapolis

Jenny and Ed just moved into a new/old house. No matter where they live Jenny manages to make it a showplace with her wonderful collections. Just a few photos of the things I love in Jenny's home.

China cabinet filled with white stoneware Jenny has collected for decades.

Their last name is Angelton so Jenny collects the letter "A".

Love the school map and the entire wall collage.

Jenny & Katie Elkins

Jenny Hosts a bridal shower for her adorable niece Katie. Who is engaged to a man named Robbie..Bet they name their kids after me:)

Jenny's new abode. Sooooo Cute! Great food! Great time was had by all!

KT's favorite color is and always has been orange! The bridesmaids will wear green dresses with ORANGE flowers. She thought orange dresses with black tuxes would look Halloween....Don't get me started on the things she doesn't like...she has a list:)

Favorite Things in the Newell's Bowling Green Home

This adorable sailor suit has a history. The photo on the right is none other than Gordon Newell and on the left is his grandson Nate. I love this! They both are the cutest babies in the land...or it may be the sailor suit that makes them both adorable:)

Every where one looks in the Newell home is a still life waiting to be photographed or painted. I had to do some major editing to choose 3 and I still may not be done.

The man on the back stairs has a name but I can't remember it. Will get back to you on this.

The Newell's Interior Shots / Bowling Green

This home is perfect for entertaining.

Conga lines form around the dining room table with Aunt Alice and her tamborine leading the way.

A Thomas Porter "racu" vase resides on the coffee table. The Newell's found Thomas at the KY Guild of Artist and Craftsmen Art Show in Bowling Green this past weekend.

The Newell's Yard Art / Bowling Green

Great minds think alike....Regina and Gordon have a bottle tree too!

The Newell's Garden / Bowling Green, KY

The Newell's Lovely Home / Bowling Green, KY

The best part about our Kentucky Guild Show moving the venue to Western Kentucky is that I get to visit the Newell's, Gordon and Regina. Who I might add, are on my short list of favorite people in the world. I insist on staying in the Molly Newell suite when visiting.

Gordon and Regina purchased this home in the 80's. Then proceeded to completely renovate from top to bottom. Many improvements have been added along the way...Martha Stewart is a Regina Newell wantabe. Her gifts in taste, decor, etc...stand the test of time.
