beautiful paintings

I used to keep these two beautiful little paintings as part of my display at Ethical Clothing in Petaluma.  People kept asking to purchase them and I finally took them down because I was afraid someone was going to pinch them.  I love their sweetness and authenticity.  And they just plain make me happy.  Which is why, I suppose, everyone is drawn to them.  I asked the artist if she wouldn't be kind enough to paint some more that I could put in my little shop - and she did!  Her name is Phoebe Brookes.  I think she is an amazing artist.  And I am biased, because she is also my beautiful sister.  Here is a sample of what is available here.

back in the land of the living

It has been very, very busy around here, therefore, no blogging.  Getting ready for the UniqueSF show was a lot-lot-lot of work.  But, I did it.  And I had a great time.  It was, I would have to say, a success.  One of my bags was even featured in the Unique ad they ran in the SF Weekly.  So that felt pretty good.  I have enjoyed a couple weeks off with the wee ones playing in the beautiful California sun shine and now...back to work.  Starting on the 20th of this month you will be able to find my bags and some home furnishings at Loft1513 in Noe Valley, San Francisco.  And the new site with online shop will be up and running in a couple of weeks.  The online shop will be filled with lots of new designs and some brand new products which I am very happy with.  But, today, I am going to share some snap shots from around our home.  Enjoy the sunshine, wherever you are.

A new chair I have been working on for a while and a large stack of beautiful, over-sized floor pillows with leather handles - one of the new items that will be available in the shop.
