And I certainly don't have a 'look' -- just a mishmash of everything that somehow, by instinct, usually turns out to be a warm imaginative, 'living room'."
Sister Parish

I think I will enjoy this recently published book...hint, hint, double-clue.

So I did a little research and learned that book events were scheduled in my neck of the woods.
I could not attend the book event, but I discovered a new store called NEST in Dedham, Massachusetts.
So I jumped over to NEST's website, read a bit, then decided to pitch my frames to the five co-owners, thinking, if the owners like Sister Parish's style enough to have a book event, then they just might like my work, which embodies so many of the same characteristics as Sister Parish style: colorful, fun, unique, and handmade.
My instincts were spot on - I just sent an order of brown zebra frames and brown suede desktop memento boards.
If you live in the area, stop by Nest - the photos on the website show a wonderful assortment of goods. I wanted to stop by for a visit after my show last weekend but it was just too busy.
And to top it all off, my neighbor at the show last weekend, Church of the Redeemer Christmas Market, heard me giving my spiel to a potential buyer about how wonderful the frames are..."so easy to change the picture...just slip the photo in between the fabric and ribbon... the frames are in lots of fabulous boutiques... including NEST" - and low and behold, this gal's cousin is one of the co-owners of the store. Just goes to prove the old adage, the older we get, the smaller our world becomes. This same gal and I also went to high school together - imagine that - I ran into a lot of people at the Church of the Redeemer Christmas Market - it was wonderful to see old friends and to be back in the Boston area...

I was fortunate enough to meet Mita - the illustrator and she was so kind and so enthusiastic. It is always fun to connect with other artists and creative individuals.
