i haven't posted in awhile due to our current crazy schedule but hope things calm down just a bit later in April
not that i am complaining...its all exciting stuff but i am looking forward to taking a breath and enjoying spring

we will be vending at a new event in New Jersey - you should come check it out if you live in the area
Art Opera - Red Bank, NJ
the Vendor Faire will take place at St. Anthony's Recreation Center on Bridge Avenue in Red Bank
Saturday 4/10 and Sunday 4/11 from 10-5
visit Art Opera for more information

we will be premiering a brand new line of goodies and will have a bunch of one of a kind treasures as well - we hope to see you there!

despite the busy schedule i am excited to host my family Easter celebration again this year
i love filling our large farmhouse with a whole bunch of people i love

every year i try to do something new and creative...and to my hubby's chagrin there is always a "theme" color
one year's theme was citrus yellow and orange with white polka dots, inspired by a set of adorable napkins
last year was aqua and white, inspired by my favorite vintage dishes
this year i think i may draw inspiration from the studio work we have been doing - aged cream, touches of chalk white and sophisticated black - its very vintage and more subdued then i normally go for in my home but i am really drawn to it this year

i will share photos - if i can remember to take some between the cooking, cleaning and merriment :)

bzzzzzzzy and bustling

we have been bzzzzzzzzy bees
many new and expanded things in the works - very hard work but so exciting!

we have been bustling around our studios creating a fabulous new collection of unique artful kits - I am gaga over these and can't wait to unveil them. We intend on premiering them at the Art Opera event in Red Bank, NJ (very cool event - check it out!)

we have been bustling around our barn expanding our antiques shoppe - last year was a great success and we have added a bunch of new dealer spaces. Signing/coordinating dealers, cleaning, organizing, decorating & setting up displays will be the majority of our April (the shoppe re-opens on May 1st).

we have been bustling on goodies, gifties, surprises for Art in the Rough - the art retreat we host, taking place August 13-16, 2010. sewing, painting, gluing, junking, has been a blast (but so much still to do!)

and last but not least...we have been bzzzzzzzzy planning garden improvements, starting seeds, expanding/improving our plant house (we sell perennials, annuals & veggies all summer long).
we have been officially bitten by the bug - Spring Fever is very strong in this house right now

do not play with my heart

march is such a tease
it brings with it a yearning

for green leaves
for earthy smells
for winged flutterbys

but it always leaves me
grey & brown
wet, drab, silence

oh april
do not
play with
my heart
