A Post to catch up on, oh, I don’t know, the past SIX months

21 Jun

I’m pretty sure my last blog post was in January, and a LOT has happened since then, and I have more things coming to announce, but I don’t feel right about saying what’s coming up next without a brief catch up sesh!

The first Friday-Sunday of March was the Hampton Roads 3rd Annual Tattoo Festival, and I like last year had a booth AND a BLAST!!

My booth

but my most significant purchase from that weekend was a commissioned portrait of Wheeler.  Jonathan Aumen of Dog and Tonic creates the most gorgeous portraits of your canine companions on the inside covers of  antique books using fire and soot as his medium AND for a very reasonable price, and he was an absolute pleasure to work with! I think it turned out amazing and is definitely one of my most treasured pieces in my house!
