Very Ferry Debbee

























































Debbee Thibault in my town, now that's a treat.
Debbee in town to show the world her new line for Fall 2007...well, that's just 3 words FAB - U - LOUS...her new blown glass ornaments are divine, the new sculpts for her papier mache creations are magic...
Her work is something to behold, and our friendship is a rare and wonderful gift I treasure.
And like all friends, we have our traditions...one is to have dinner after the shows at the Javits Center where Debbee premiers her line to retailers...
So, Laurie Meseroll and I headed in to see Debbee at the New York International Gift Fair and my oh my, we walked our feet off...
(I should mention that Laurie wore cunning 5" platform, velveteen and oh, so strappy sandals for the occassion!)
There were many new creations and old friends to see throughout the show...Jo Packham,Darren, Danyel and Gianna of FG&Co, Caramia and her Hotcakes, Elaine from Atchoo, Jill Schwartz, and Lynsey Waters and of course, dearest Debbee. I'll have to post some more images from each of the artists to the website and blog to keep you in the loop!
At the end of the day I let the gals know we had tickets to ride...the FERRY! The busy day became sweet evening with the skyline behind us. Debbee, Carolyn, Laurie and I headed across the river to Ro's beautiful home on the Hudson for collections galore and more silliness than our fair share. Thanks so much for a wonderful get-together Ro...
and thanks to everyone for an inspiring day, a wonderful tradition
and new ideas...

Wish you were all there.
xxoo Jen O'Connor
PS...with so much going on I anticipate posting three times each week...Monday, Wednesday and Friday. My goal is to keep this blog interesting, inspirational and intimate. Let me know what you think and keep those comments coming.
