Fall is in the Air!

 

 

Hello Autumn… with the cooler temperatures and the vibrant colors we welcome the change.  You know its fall when Steve begins wrapping Pumpkin Spice Soap bars, and our latest seasonal – Autumn Breeze with notes of spice and a hint of sweet tobacco.  I have been painting fall themed scarves, and thinking of apple cider and pumpkin pie.

We had a great weekend at Tremont Art and Culture Festival, visiting old and new friends alike.  And yes, in typical tremont fashion we had a bit of a downpour – but it was at the start and we the hearty artists rode it out… to have a wonderful weekend.  Thank you one and all who visited, and shared your lives with us.  We felt so blessed.

Steve and I are taking a couple weeks off the shows just to tool up for some big events coming soon:

October 8th we are at Lakeside for the Lakeside Lighthouse Festival, and our shop will be out front of Idylwild Bed and Breakfast in Lakeside itself.  We are praying for no rain because we cant set up a tent on the front lawn – so join us in hoping for wonderful weather.  Otherwise we will be hiding on the porch.

October 16th is Textile Art Alliance’s fall boutique and fashion show at Landerhaven and i am delighted to be back there again this year.  I am working on some unique signature pieces in silk cocoon, and some special pieces of silk.  And a new series of wire crochet bead embroidered brooches.  As we get close i will post more.

Also, As we get closer to the holiday season how would you like to make your own gifts?  I am offering a series of silk painting classes that will show you how to paint your own scarf.  It can be quite a lot of fun and you will have a wearable piece of your own art.   See below for details!

Our schedule is always being updated on the schedule tab of this website.  

New or trending products for us include :

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