Hi everyone, I have been a very bad blogger lately but wanted to do a quick update to show some of the new items I will be selling at a sale this Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm at the home of my friend Joy. Seven other local artists will be selling too. Pottery, paintings, printmaking, handknit and crochet, books and illustrations, jewelry and more. Please stop by and have a glass of wine and browse or at least enjoy some of our cookies. Here is a sneak peek.

Since I closed my etsy store some time ago, you can buy pieces directly by sending me an email or commenting on my blog. Just tell me what the caption was or describe to me what you liked and I can give you price and availability. Many have figured this out but for those who have asked there it is. Art and Commerce are like a horse and carriage?

So a couple years ago I put an end to The Traditional Easter Basket and decided that entry to the family Easter meal (buona Pasqua!) would be a home made Peep’s Diorama. I had heard someone mention that the Washington Post or someone had done a story on these kookie dioramas, it sounded like fun. I wish I had taken more photos last year but I did snap a few this year. I think this new tradition has caught on! The entries were hilarious. They are truly an insight into the eyes of the makers… Who do you vote for? Please do not penalize contestants for the lack of photography skills on my part.
And yes, I do realize Easter is long gone…I am a little behind and out of sequence. Perhaps an insight into me.
So, About 7 weeks ago I was on SKYPE with my sister Lou and she was very excited.She had just booked a very last minute trip to italy to attend a conference with other bloggers interested in the region of Italy our mother’s family is from. It would be Abruzzo food and wine and travel lovers. I decided to join her for the trip! It was as I said all very last minute, and I am SO glad I decided to go. I will be posting some photos from the trip but if you check out the other attendees you will no doubt see much much more. Will put up some links as I go too. Keep in mind that ALL of these people are serious bloggers, not dabblers like myself. I hope you enjoy. This is Lou and Giovanni, we were having dinner at his daughter Cinzia’s and Lou was showing him old family photos on her iPad. The grappa was delicious!

I am so excited to spend this Saturday with my good friend Jean Campbell showing and selling our work in the Studio of Mark Teresa in The Casket Arts Building. Both of them have wonderful work and you might like some of mine as well. Please come by if you are in town! Here’s the link with details: https://nemaa.org/directory/10317.
