The 19th Hole

19th Hole Design WM

Sometimes it takes me a while to fineness a design. I will come across the sketch from time to time and ponder it while moving on to something else. Then suddenly it MUST take shape, come to life or find its voice. I love it when that happens. This bunny holding the 19th Hole topiary flag has been peeking out at me for years. So glad that he’s here now.

I personally am not a golfer unless you consider my Goofy Golf credentials (otherwise known as Putt-Putt golf).  I am killer at putting through the moving windmill… just saying.

Back to the design… originally he was a intended for a birthday greeting card (which is still in the works) but since then I have decided to offer him on other products. Wouldn’t a nice set of marble coasters or notecards with The 19th Hole design make a sweet gift for your favorite golfing friend? I thought so too.

Skaneateles Festival- Brook Farm

brook farm

” Tonight’s performance immerses us in the world of opera, and, at Brook Farm, opera is immersed in the world of nature.” (From the evening’s program.) How fortunate we are to have world class music here in the little village of Skaneateles.  Seventy-five artist from around the country and the world will be showcasing their talents during this year’s Festival.

The evening of the performance- A Night at the Met/opera was featured. Last year Gypsy music from Eastern Europe was the highlight. Nearly every year since the kids were tiny we have brought the summer to a close on the lawn at Brook Farm. Built in 1902, the home is on the National Register of Historic Places. The Metropolitan Opera sprano, Lisette Oropesa, the MET Opera Orchestra Musicians and the evening cricket accompaniment brought a lovely surreal quality to the close of the day. A special moment in time.

The festival will continue through early September. We have heard that this may be the last year that Brook Farm will be hosting Picnic Saturdays and the evening concert- so if you’ve never been and wanted to go… now is the time! You will love it. For more information go to Skanfest.org.

 

 

 

 

 




French Bulldog Design

Frenchies FinalWM

These little guys are so cute… this design was inspired by a friend over on Instagram…. @FiveFabulousFrenchies! Aren’t they precious!? Their mom gave me permission to use them as my models for the new design. Wasn’t that generous?! I was having trouble picking what color to show this sweet, clownish little breed.  After seeing these charming dogs and their fabulous poses it became clear! What is better than a plethora of pretty, posing Frenchies??  Not a thing.

This design is available on notecards, linens, prints, marble coasters and pillows. For ordering information click here.
