Fall is in the Air!

Hello Autumn…Crisp evenings, and the turning colors of the leaves signal the seasons changing, and we love autumn.  In our fridge are a good selection of the season’s best apples, and a good stockpile of winter squashes.  Nothing more satisfying that baked apples, or pumpkin pie. And thankfulness is always in the forefront. We had a wonderful time at the Cleveland Museum of Art’s Textile Art Alliance Wearable Art Boutique and Fashion Show.  How lovely to see all of the ladies dressed up and to see all of the vendors with such great talent.  Thank you to my faithful customers who returned for this year’s wire crochet brooches, and a new classic – silk cocoon earrings.

So what is next on our agenda?

October 21st we are at Third Friday at 78th Street Studios – find us in Jeff Dube and Allen Kradlak’s studio (#203) featuring our amazing soap and limited silk cocoon earrings.  So much to see. Hope to see you there.

October 22-23 is the final weekend for the Golden Autumn Gallery show at the Log Cabin Gallery.  There is a goodly selection of my silk scarves, wire crochet brooches, silk cocoon earrings and solid perfumes.  If you are looking for something fun stop out to the Log Cabin Gallery in located at 1671 Main Street, Peninsula, OH  44264.  Hours for the gallery are    Friday, Saturday, Sunday   11 am – 5 pm; Monday – Thursday by appointment and Open during Exhibits Only.

  1. Hi, Just wondering about the essential oils you use. Are they synthetic or therapeutic grade 100% pure? Thank you.
