Happy Birthday to me!

Yesterday was my birthday and WHAT a great day! Started out the morning with the news that we made the "ShopTalk" blog on the Washington Post! Here's the link! Feel free to leave comments about how you like the new space. Thanks to featured merchant, Chris Novak of New to You. Aren't familiar with New to You? You gotta go, elegant high end consignment shop with "you won't believe it prices" for their designer wares. The dress collection that they have in house at the moment just makes you happy it's spring!
Other big news is that center studio upstairs is rented. I was contemplating making it a vintage shop but realized that upstairs needs to be "all artists, all the time". We have two of the smaller studios left, tell the world! I want to get a full house before June, if possible.

We sold six pieces of art yesterday! Three to a brand new customer too. HOW exciting!

Then I headed home to dinner with my and my sister's family. I am still whirling under the influence of my husband's chocolate ganache cake. Birthdays are one of the days I am glad Bob went to culinary school!

Happy Birthday to Sue, too!

Deborah Conn & "Red Herring" at First Stage!

Talk about a double feature! Bob & I took the family to see "Red Herring" at First Stage in Tyson's last night and had a blast! Didn't know that Northern Virginia had a theatre? You don't know what you are missing! No tortured ride downtown with 30 dollar parking,just a straight shot down route 7 to an amazing space that has been carved out of an industrial complex.

Red Herring was part love story, part murder mystery,part spy story and all well acted play set in the 1952 McCarthy era.

Tickets are only $25 and the show closes the 26th so see for all the details! While you are at the show you can see Deborah Conn's one woman show. It's astounding in its skill, variety & breadth. I am particularly taken with Debby's monotypes. Go to to sign up for her last watercolor workshop of the spring!

Klara Sever has brought in 2 new sculptures for Father's Day. Scope them out the next time you are in! Posted by Picasa
