I am super late with this post like I have been with every post lately, but since most people have on-demand, you can catch up if you have missed the first one or two episodes. These are some new shows that are getting attention:
Some of my early followers will recall my OBSESSION with Janet Hill Studio paintings. I stumbled upon her Etsy shop through a mention on Whitney English’s website. I was instantly attracted to her work and began stalking Etsy around 3 pm, waiting for her to post an original painting. When she did post, it would last about 8 seconds, so you had to be ready and then pounce on it! I was lucky enough to snag three and then had to put a stop to the madness. I had my three paintings framed and they look so beautiful in my apartment. I have been itching to get some more, but now Janet’s work has increased in value and price, so I am safely looking in her shop at her prints. Her previous art is now sold as fine art giclee prints on watercolor type paper. The prices range from $16 – $55 for the prints. There are so many that you could group together. I just LOVE them. These are a few that I have my eye on…
The Wild West
Lady Gertrude’s Decadent Brunch with Flora and Fauna
Black Walnut Manor
The Dogs Of Black Walnut Manor- Gertie, Douglas, and Little Bess
Red Roses and Dark Horses
Emily Wondered Off
The Feline and the Fox
Check out the fabulous Janet Hill Studio on Etsy.
Today was my Back to School Trunk Show at my amazing friend Becky’s house. I was a bundle of nerves last night worrying that I didn’t have enough jewelry (always my fear), didn’t have everything organized (I am not the most organized person…) and just general nerves about no one showing up (never has happened in 10 years of trunk shows). So, when I finally went to bed around 2am and made sure all 3 alarm clocks were set for 7am, I was so tired and fell asleep immediately. Then around 5am, I woke up in a panic that I would oversleep..I mean I have had about 100 trunks shows in my life and this amount of anxiety is a little overboard.
I had dropped some stuff off last night but got to work setting up this morning. Becky had two amazing tables for me to use, one large round table that fit all of my paper/gift products.
It looked like a paper store..so cute.
And a large rectangle table that fit all my jewels and Alphabet Plates.
and I tested my willpower all at the same time by staring at a delicious platter of bagels and smelling a scrumptious lemon pound cake. It almost broke me.
My amazing hostess Becky was so great..I had so much fun and can’t wait for all the holiday shows to start. I think in November, I have 8 booked so far!!!
So excited that I signed on to participate in the most amazing event in New York on the 24th. I am setting up a “store” at an event instead of a silent auction. I have two other trunk shows before I leave, so I am sitting on my couch making jewelry every night. So much new stuff.
Here are some of my favorite new things…
Would love to meet up with any local bloggers while I am in town the 22-25th. Anyone around??? Alice, can you sneak into town from Greenwich? xoxo
So excited for tonight’s festivities at Neiman Marcus for Fashion’s Night Out! There are so many events in Miami but this is where I will be. To celebrate FNO, I am offering a 20% off coupon on my website for 24 hours. There is a bunch of new things on there so check it out!
Coupon Code: FNO
I was lucky to snag a seat for the fashion show..chock full of awesome clothes and some of the highest heels I have ever seen.
I ran into VIP KPD customer Cecilia on the way out!
Such a fun event…I hope there was lots of sales tonight..a portion of the proceeds are going to Beaux Arts and our programs with the Lowe Art Museum.
I really should be a paid advertiser of The Gap…seriously. They have a bunch of stuff on sale this weekend for 40% off. One of those items is my favorite super soft tee, which is back in the stores. Comes in so many colors and it is my go-to long sleeve t-shirt for everything. I own so many at this point, I could give them their own drawer. So, $19.95 with 40% off is $11.97.
These are the colors..this round, I got the green and navy.
