I’m excited about being in the Alki Art Fair tomorrow, West Seattle’s great music and crafts event on the beach. It runs all weekend, but I will be there in Booth 19 just on Saturday, 10 to 6pm. The music goes to 9pm. It’s going to be warm and beautiful, so be sure to wear a hat and come on by. I’ll have lots of new designs of the sparkling Glass Tile Jewelry (sorry, jewelry not available online yet) that my daughter Lila and I make from the pages of my book, “Flowers of Volunteer Park Conservatory.”
The story of the jewelry: We were at a craft fair selling my books as a holiday gift item. Daughter Lila noticed all the traffic at jewelry booths nearby and said we could make jewelry from one of my books we had with a damaged cover. Me: “Excuse me???” Lila: “I saw it on Pinterest.” Next thing I know, we are in the jewelry business.
Linking to Monday Mellow Yellows, Today’s Flowers, Floral Friday, Weekend Flowers, NF Blo-Ma Tuesday, My Romantic Home, Macro Monday, I Heart Macro Saturday and Fishtail Cottage Thursday. Hope to see you at Alki Beach on Saturday, July 20th!
