so here it is, the reason that i've been neglecting this blog
(and many other things in my life, just ask the cat fur tumbleweeds in my hallways)

it's a store! it's my store! mine and kristy's and kelly's.
it's at 149 main street in beacon, ny, where kristy and kelly live.
no, i'm not moving to beacon. i'm just going to become very friendly
with the metro north conductors. and do a lot of work from home.

this whole project began with an idea to start up an online store, and
ballooned into a brick + mortar shop when this perfect space came up for rent.
so now we're on line and live and in person.

we're focusing on handmade housewares, plus unique craft supplies.
there will be craft nights and crafty classes coming soon.

our grand opening party will be on saturday october 10th.
there will be homemade pie, live music, and face painting.
and in the meantime, we're open noon-7 thursday - sunday.

ps - you can become our fan on facebook!

i spied these gorgeous quilt squares from shanelily rain's shop
featured in the storque, etsy's blog, and just had to have them.
i still have to figure out what i'm going to do with them...

that's two, count 'em, two orange treasuries in one week that i've been included in.
so exciting that my favorite color is getting the props it deserves.

introducing . . . penelope.

i was featured in a gorgeous etsy treasury today, featuring my
most favorite color combination: blue and orange!
you can see it for real and click on the items here.
thanks to muppetloon for putting it together and including me.

this was my birthday present from stephen.
i think it's the best birthday present he's ever given me.

isn't it beautiful? it's a home for barbara.

sarah and i bought barbara from a homeless man in the
2nd ave subway stop, on her birthday, 10 years ago.
her original bag—purple vinyl—was lost in a basement flood.
this new one is even better.

i have a new job: assistant coach of the t-ball yankees of the inner city little league.
thirteen 5-year-olds in high socks and jock straps. at least half of them have no idea where second base is. hands down the best part of my week.
