I've been wanting to add some new items to my Etsy shops for ages now, but have been bogged down with the paperwork and accounting side of business - inventory and taxes....not one of my favorite aspects of doing business!

So, it was really nice to get back to showing some new designs, most of which will be debuting at the upcoming Lone Star Ladies show in Austin on April 17th:

You will be getting more info on the show closer to the date, so stay tuned!

In the meantime here is this week's Turquoise Tuesday offering - perfect for Spring!

TURQUOISE TUESDAYS - Back from Dallas!

Friday night's reception at the Artisan Style gallery in Dallas, proved to be exciting with a larger-than-expected crowd to view our art! I finally met fellow artists, Gina Marie Dunn, Michelle Stroesu and Kate Wickham in person and was amazed at how great our art looked hanging side by side! The show runs through April 3rd, so for those of you in the Dallas area wishing to see it, be sure to stop by, or check it out online:  http://www.artisanstyle.net/  and http://www.artisanstyle.net/#/gallery/46/0

I visited Brandon & Steve, the owners of Artisan Style, at the Dallas Flea the following day & can't wait to get back up there for the next one - lot's of cool wares and vintage goodies - I spotted a really cute purple and white 1950's sundress and am kicking myself for not trying it on.....

Today's turquoise item? This very much photographed and painted truck that sits in front of the Arroyo Seco Mercantile, a favorite subject of mine:

Originally $40, offered for $28 this week!
