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!

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.
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.
The Glass show is still up at Gallery JanJoBe. Stop in to see some of these incredible artists.
Dog days of summer are here!! It is soooooooo hot and humid! I have optional wednesdays in June. If I am at my store I am open if not I am closed. Catch me if you can.
Getting ready for Francisco's Farm Art Show, June 26 & 27, Midway, KY. One of the top 10 shows in the country. Kentucky is lucky to have three of the top 10 shows. St.James Art Fair in October and Kentucky Crafted / The Market in February. And I am even luckier to be in all three. We do have it going on in Kentucky!
Friday night Rick, Joy, and Ann share a laugh at the Glass Hop. Joy and Ann are two of the owners of Gallery JanJoBe. Both are glass artists. Both make jewelry and other cool glass items. Both were happy to see Rick who displays his wonderful woven belt stools in their Gallery.

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:)
Had a delish breakfast @ the Farmer's Market in BG. Stuffed french toast with homemade butter, whipped cream, strawberries, and sausage. Yummmmmmmmm! Also, some local artists rounded out the mix of veggies and flowers.
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 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.
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.
