chicks RULE...Happy Spring...


Happy Spring...Happy Easter
I hope the new season is filled with glad days and good memories...

I love celebrating Easter with the family...

...and I will share a peek at that soon. 
I am cooking for us, I've made the place cards and wee basket treats for all with the help of the kiddos and, best of all...
I have decorated the table in all the colors of the season...with bunnies, and paper grass and wee CHICKS galore...

Speaking of chicks....I love antique postcards...
here's a peek at some of my Easter-tide faves...

Some collected... some as vintage objects others just as images, but this year, I've focused on CHICKS!

Just reminding you...chicks rule!





Happy Easter...Happy Spring...
enjoy the new season, however you celebrate it!

...I am smitten...HOTCAKES


 Warning...this is going to be a total swoon-fest...
I have to confess an utter addiction to
Caramia's new creations.


Now I have sold her HOTCAKES DESIGN work for almost 9 years, but these new pieces go way beyond...the palette the shapes...

they are so close to all the vintage BAKELITE that is just way too spendy...and somehow, her new pieces, are just so fresh and fun... 

SWOON....

I am willing to forgo my usual lust for new Spring fashion, and instead, treat myself to some new HOTCAKES...

Here's a peek at some of her NEW NECKLACES


 


 Then there's the florals...these two are MY FAVES

 The beads...oh the beads....the long and swingy...the chunky and the colorful...
 
I want these mint ones...I am in fact, 
green with envy...over this "Mint Grand Strand"...


Then there's the earrings...
 See them all HERE...

Thanks for letting me gush...

Caramia, you really did it this time!
Thanks for the fun

So a Happy St. Patrick's Day to all...


Maybe if you're not Irish, 
you'll celebrate with us anyway...

There's a whole lotta dancing of the jig and wearing of the green that happens in these parts each year...
so join us!


Anyone else out there Irish?  
Anyone else wearing green today???



Enjoy the holiday and

...will I see you in Round Top?

...so excited to share the news of the 
Where Women Create Reunion 
that's been scheduled for 
Round Top's Spring Antiques Week.

I will be making a very short trip to be a part of the events hosted by my friend & boss, Jo Packham...
I love Jo...and I love working for her as a contributor to her magazines. It's become a big part of my own journey, and I am grateful to her and all of the many women with whom I have been able to work.

It's going to be a special treat for me to step out 
(on my 47th birthday - woo hoo) 
to be a part of the gathering she has planned...

On Monday, 3/28...




Thanks in advance to my gal pals Holly Kuhn, 
Gina Galvin, Sandra Evertson, Tara Royer Steele, and Celeste Shaw for encouraging me to leave the work behind for a few days and make the time to be with them and share...without them, this journey would not be possible...
Hope to see some of you there at these events!
xxoo Jen

a peek at our "heART of winter"

....we've been flying south to Sanford, FL 
for 6 years now...

We're just back from our annual appearance at the Jeanine Taylor Folk Art Gallery.... 

....and it was never better.  
 
The show has truly taken on a personality of its own, maturing and morphing with the artists who participate and bring their energy and artful spirits to the venue each year.

And I am so very grateful to Jeanine Taylor and Gallery Manager, Mary Shaw, for hosting us...




We love being there...

The art is amazing, the venue is stellar, and the customers who come through the door -- many old friends, but so many more new to Earth Angels each year, impart their own flurry of excited and enthusiasm to the Artists' Showcase.

Thanks to all who made the show a wonderfully festive success! Olivia, Teresa, Jane, Val, Letty, Lucy and Bonnie...total WOW to all...


Here's Letty Worley & her Letty's Bears...




Here's a peek at Lucy & her display...



 And the wonderful world of Wee Forest Folk & Bonnie Petersen...








 ...and Valerie Weberpal and her Harvest Moon Designs...







And more from some of our fave Earth Angels Artists...





AND SAVE THE DATES FOR NEXT YEAR...we're already planning!!!!
and we'd love to see you there!
March 10th & March 11th...


Thanks again to all... and I cannot wait for next year...I love the town, I love the gallery and I love bringing the Art Girls' RoadShow to FL to see our many customer friends there!
