I am so excited to have moved into my new shop location. handmade &found is now open inside When Pigs Fly Magic Happens in downtown Smithfield. The open house will be in February so be on the lookout for the invitation. New space, new designs.
SA and I had a relaxing weekend on the Eastern Shore in Onancock. We stayed at the lovely Charlotte Hotel and restaurant, and really enjoyed our visit to long time friends Nancy and Brenda and their wonderful new home and studios. Also, had time to stop by the new Shooting Star(who has some of my textile work available), in Cape Charles.
I have been inspired the last few weeks, by a little bird. SA made some new lights for the front porch. The old ones rusted and everything we saw at the stores were not interesting(this happens to me a lot). So this little bird decides to build a nest-this late in summer-inside the light fixture. We have two lights on the porch, but she had to use the one near our front door. So not we are dive bombed every time we go out the door, and we cannot turn on the lights. It is a testament to the dedication, in the beginning we tried to move the nest before it got to big. But the birds never gave up on using this exact spot. I guess we should use this lesson, even if things don’t quite work out you can still keep going. Still trying to figure what type of birds they are, anyone know what they are?
Holiday Ornaments now available at Blue Skies or contact me directly.
My new summer classes are now on the schedule. These are offered at my home studio in Smithfield. Please let me know if you have any questions. Look forward to seeing everyone this year. Angelia
