New Artist- Ellen Zilin

I decided to entirely rearrange the store 4 hours before our last FIRSTFriday celebration. NOT the greatest logistical move on MY part, but the main impetus was to showcase new merchandise that we received from out latest artist Ellen Zilin. Ellen lives in Woodbridge, VA and and does beautiful ceramic painting. She specializes in personalized pieces and does a substantial custom work. Her skills range from the painterly to the graphic. I especially love her baby birth celebration sets: bowl, cup and plate hand painted and personalized with the newborn's vital statistics. For those of us that are celebrating birthdays with more than one digit Ellen paints witty personalized plates and elaborate biographical "tile story" boards that celebrate the birthday celebrant's life and likes. We have her portfolio here at the shop where you can get an idea of how Ellen's creative brush can add to your next occasion. Take a peek next time you are in....
We had a great weekend! I have discovered that I am lousy at "hawking" postcards at the farmer's market, but woe to the person that gets in line near me anywhere else. We had a fun crowd on Farmer's Market Saturday a.m. including one couple that had to wear their purchases home as they were shopping via motorcycle! Other than that the family enjoyed time together at the neighborhood pool and Bob surprised himself by being able to maneuver the porch steps to get his second railing painted (finally!). Hope your Monday is as fine as the weather.
