Jewelry Shopping Soiree’ Brunch

This past Spring I decided to go all out and throw my own personal home show and while I’m not the girliest of girls, I went all out and threw a garden-style brunch.

Of course I had to have door prizes.


Those who brought guests were thrilled with their free

Food of course was central to the theme, and I was quite proud of the tablescape I created.


Then again the entire purpose was for guest to get to try on,

model and purchase jewelry, which they had plenty of fun doing.



Friday Favorite: Monet in the Third Dimension

It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of functional art.  I love art that has a use, that has dimension, that belongs in a home.  While perusing Etsy I came across this divine waterlily tray by Blazer Studios.  The shape, structure and patina are absolutely lovely!

Beachcliff Art Walk in Review

Last weekend I had the pleasure of participating in the Beachcliff Art Walk. I wasn’t sure what to expect from the art walk, since this was the very first one, but all in all it turned out to be a lovely event.  The owners of Studio 22 arranged it, and managed to do an excellent job of running it.   We lucked out that the weather was GORGEOUS, they had an amazing lineup of talent, and a never-ending supply of water bottles.

I did manage to sneak away a couple times throughout the day, and thought I would share some photos of my fellow artists.  2lineartdudeJohn Musarra of ARC-REN, Architectural Renderings

He had some wonderfully detailed work.  I was personally thrilled to see that he had one drawing of Mahall’sBowling Alley in Lakewood, which is such a classic place!

I’m not sure why my husband didn’t tell me to fix my hair before taking the picture!  🙂  I was so happy it wasn’t a windy day!
