Dear Swallow

No, this is NOT another picture of my grandmother…this is artist Ria Charisse’s card. And her  “Thorny Twig” cast, a present from my friend Bonnie. For years I have been eyeing Ria’s work, I  have a piece of her jewelry-but it is the casts that I love most. “The fascination with natural forms continues. After […]

Lobster Octopus Nutcracker

Look! Our framed Alphabet letters are featured in the latest Land Of Nod Catalog. I love that the stylist spelled out one of my favorite boy names-and then put these on a BINTH Green wall…FUN! ( Thanks Jamie, Lia and Nancy from LOD for letting us use the picture here.)

Montana “The Candy Emporium”

Another Red Lodge store we spent some time in. Well, they had the good black Licorice from Holland, the original, of course I spend some time in there…and went back to for more. Twice. Anyhow, this is heaven: taffy as far as your eye can see, home made fudge and truffles and pralines, candy bars […]
