Everyone who leaves a comment will be entered into a random drawing for an Arts In RI gift basket featuring goodies from many of our shops. (one entry per person per post. In other words you can enter once every time we post a new product!!!) Be sure to check back on the blog on Valentine's Day as we will announce the winner that day. Entries will be accepted until midnight February 13th.

Have you ever fallen in love with something at first sight? That's how I felt when I saw this classy Valentine themed clutch made by Linda of Alamodestuff. The fabric is velvet flocked red taffeta. Linda said of the fabric: "When I saw it, I simply had to have it. I wasn't sure what I was going to make, but I bought it anyway. After staring at it for days, I decided that it would make the perfect clutch for a little black dress. The shape was inspired by the purses of the 1940s. It reminds me of a time when women wore evening gloves with their fancy little bags." Check out Linda's shop for this item as well as other wonderful items with urban appeal.

Ice Storm

January 7, 2009

The weather here in New England as of late has been a bit crazy. It runs the gamut of warm one day and a couple days later it's freezing. Today was no different. We had an ice storm and while I could I popped out to snap a few pictures in my yard. I wish the sun had been out because the ice coated trees looked like chandeliers, and bushes were brought low by the weight of the ice and looked as if they were bowing in the woods. Very pretty, very dangerous. A quick run to the chickens and back inside to work on some pendants before I got bonked by falling ice. Enjoy!

My newest pendant of 2009. Her face is more muted than my other pieces and the softness was hard to capture.
