Full Swing into the Shopping Season

Hard to believe we are almost through November! I'm currently offering free shipping on all new purchases from my etsy shop through the end of the month (Wednesday!) You can use the coupon code "yipee" at checkout and save a few bucks...

For those in the Portland area, I'll have my work at a fabulous Art to Wear holiday show next weekend, 
Dec 2nd and 3rd at Ann Williamson's in NE Portland

AND, if that weren't enough, you can find me at the LOCAL 14 pop up gallery in Lake Oswego through the Holidays 

and always at The Real Mother Goose and David Frank, both in Portland.

Autumn's last gasp

Last night we had a pretty big wind and rain storm in the Portland area. I had just remarked at how pretty the Japanese maple looked this year. Seems like the red was extra intense, but then again I think I say that every year... Alas, that windy night did a number on the trees. 

The back yard, where we have an old big leaf maple is carpeted in yellow. Bruce has that job, I cook.

The Art Spot - Pop Up Gallery in Lake Oswego

LOCAL 14, Lake Oswego Arts and Crafts League is approaching it's 45th year. Once a year, in October, the women's art group puts on a big art show and sale at the World Forestry Center in Portland, OR. Three and a half days, and then it's over... 
Now, for fans of the group, you'll be able to continuing shopping right through the Holidays. L14 is taking an empty storefront in Lake Oswego and turning it into The Art Spot pop up gallery! Things have been slowly coming together the last couple of days in preparation for our opening day on Friday. Painting is done, lights are being set and art is filling up the space at 1st and B Streets, Lake Oswego. It's like a concentrated L14 Show! Currently, gallery hours will be Wed - Sun, 11am -6pm. Dates are being set for a grand opening celebration. Please stop by if you're in the Portland area!

                                                             Lots of elbow grease getting the place in shape.



Still putting on the finishing touches

By Friday, perfection!
