Meet Madge!


Here are the latest pics of my store.

Included are  some pics of the Whimsy and grace trunk show I’m running this month through Sept 15.  There are gorgeous canvases that I want to show in more detail, so there will be more Whimsy and grace in a separate post later this week.

There are also some beautifully  stitched and finished models  in the glass enclosed case.

I also got my shelving in the back of the store and put some models up there.

You can also catch a glimpse of Madge in the gallery.

madgeMadge is quirky, funny, kind of a Gary Larson cartoon sort of gal.

She is a special order for a customer, and actually there is a whole series of Madges in various absurd situations.

For example, she’s wearing a bikini in one — in her mind, but  it’s really a modest one piece.

I think the glasses are so hip-looking, and the wreath sort of makes her look like a bit like lovely Cate Blanchett playing Queen Elizabeth.

She certainly is regal, in an off-the-wall way!

I definitely might have to get a few for the shop!

This is, of course, the Christmas Madge and I can see her made into an absolutely  splendid holiday pillow.

  1. They’re really nice and you can finish with a button or ribbons. I also have scissor cases, bookmarks, eyeglass cases, dog collars and belts! I look forward to seeing you!

  2. L-o-v-e the hatbands! Must plan a hat-shopping expedition before I visit the shop. 😉

  3. I am at the store most every day except Mondays. Tuesday store is officially open 11-2 (although I am there between 10 and 10:30 most days that the store is open and actually am there until 3 or so). Wednesday I will be there with George who is finishing up installs. You can always come in when George is working. Friday open, Sat open. You can also make an appointment and I will be there to meet you. I really like Madge, she’s great!
