ETSY.com Philly Artist Treasury with My LOVE photo

My Promos Are Done!

Here are the upcycled mini card sets I made for the free tote bags the Philly Etsy team will be giving away at the Swap-O-Rama-Rama on Saturday.

Chanticleer Gardens in Wayne, PA

This weekend I visited Chanticleer with my family and we took a quick tour in the bright sunshine, but the garden is really wonderful. The gardeners are given the liberty to make changes to the beds and create furniture which includes painted pairs of Adirondack chairs to allow visitors a view down the hills.
View down the stairway into the tennis court garden.

The cutting garden and vegetable garden with two men talking on a bench at the end of the path.

Lilly pads on the pond.

Succulent plantings on the hill.

The ruins in the center offer great framing devices, creating windows onto the woods.

They'll only be open until Oct 31st when the season ends. They are on Church rd. in Wayne, PA.

Arts By the River East Falls

I showed my photographs at the Inn Yard Park today and it was really nice! The weather was beauuu-ti-ful and everyone was really cool! My friend Carrie came and helped my run the table expertly and I had a collector of my bird paintings show up to sweep four more paintings off to her home and I got lots of good advice for new places to take photos! Thanks! I'll be out there shooting soon! There were alot of dogs out with their people.
This set up was my most involved so far, but I like the look of it. It took a good hour to put together, though.
Carrie has such good sales instincts, she put the postcards in front and the cards in the lid of the box. We made the best of the time by making upcycled photo cards for the Design Philadelphia show and the Swap-O-Rama-Rama give aways.
Meeting all of the people and having fun made it all worth it! I also scored 4 vases made by kids in the Claymobile program for the Clay Studio. I love coil built ceramics and I can't pass them up! See you all in 2 weeks at 906 Christian for Design Philadelphia (Oct. 18, 10-4)!
