What a surprise!!! Finally open mail to discover this toooooo cute birth announcement for our Bear. I didn't expect an announcement of his birth since he is 3 years old yet newly adopted by us; However, Susan had other ideas. She put Bear in the stoller and LuLu (in a flattering, bejeweled, yellow dress that matches her head band) pushing the buggy.
Jeanne Holland, T.R.Reed and adorable dog that I forgot name.
Jeannie works in clay and I sell her mini dresser dishes in my store.
First discovered this dynamic couple at Francisco's Farm. Love their work. And keep meaning to purchase more. So I was delighted to see them again, this year at Art in Speed Park. Rick and Kent fell in love with T.R.'s clever ornaments. I fell in love with one of T.R's mobiles. And their cute dog. See Above.
Who knew that David Sedaris is a Rock Star of the the literary! He filled Whitney Hall @ The Kentucky Center For The Arts last night as he delighted his fans by reading from his new book. Kept us laughing for two hours.
Years ago Patti Charron gave me a little ditty by David called "Holidays On Ice" and I have been a loyal fan ever since. I keep his books on my nightstand to read over and over. My tradition is to re-read Holidays On Ice every christmas.
I have a few of David's books on tape that I listen to when driving my Art Truck to Art Shows. All I have to do is think the words "Stadium Pal" and I start laughing. He continues to inspire me with his humor and words. Rock On With Your Bad Self David Sedaris!
Went on a drive yesterday to go for a hike and see the leaves. LuLu couln't resist the water and Bear followed suit. Both loved the muck along the shore. Baths all around when we returned home.
Our New Bear is really cute. He barks more than we want. He still jumps up on people. He may or may not bite. He eats everyone's food. He has alergies. He demands attention and gets it. He is adorable and we love him!
The Ky Guild Show @ Indian Fort Theatre was delightful.
Wonderful Weather! The leaves changed overnight. Sales were brisk. A perfect combo.
Stayed at Deb's Tree House. Great time with friends.
Every Year Sam finesses his scarecrow. He has a Jack Pumpkin Head outfit that he also wears. However, since we no longer have trick or treaters it may not see the light of day or even the dark of night this year.
Jill and Chad from Kansas City were next to me again. Love them! Jill does wonderful mosaics and has developed quite a following in Louisville. All day long she had repeat customers coming back to get another Jill fix!
Kim Johnson stops in to say hi. Love the new necklace and ear rings that she found on 3rd. Street which just happens to rock her outfit.
St. James was so fun this year! Sales were great! The weather was cooler and it rained long enough to get rid of strollers and the guy standing on the corner of 4th and Magnolia shouting that we were all sinners going to hell. The cooler temps will assist me while I am in Hell.
Thanks..........You help me be a full time artisan and I never take that for granted.
Savvy Susan on your right could not be more adorned and adored if she tried. She has on artwork from several artists each day. She works for clothes @ Hand Jive during the show...Has a house full of artists stay @ her lovely home on 4th St. Hosts parties during the show. Wine and Cheese event Saturday night. The list goes on and on..............Wonder Woman!!
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.
