Time Goes By So Fast!

Check out Denise's Short Hair

As we are getting ready for a busy weekend of shows I came across this photocopy of an article that appeared in the San Diego Union-Tribune on October 18th, 1998.  It's an article on Lampshade Designs featuring Denise and our gallery called Sculptchairs we had in the mid 90's.  We had a great retail space with a patio area out back perfect for workshops.  We had classes on all of the popular trends of the time, floorclothes, boxes, chairs, lampshades and more.  This article appeared the day my daughter Sophie was born.  We were so busy with workshops that 6 days after Sophie was born she went to work, literally!  I brought her along to a floorcloth painting workshop we were doing at the gallery.  Something must have caught her little eyes back then, all those days spent in a colorful art gallery, she now has her own line of accessories for girls and women -

It's scary to realize how much time has gone by, but it feels great to get back into creating and designing decorative pieces.  We are very fortunate to once again meet great, fun people who inspire us and encourage our work, so to all of those who supported us in the past and in the present we Thank You & Look forward to seeing you soon!

Countdown to our March Shows!

The sun is out and it's a beautiful Tuesday morning!  We are putting in some long hours on our artwork and it feels great to be creating!  Many pieces are getting final touches, but we wanted to give everyone a preview of what we have been working on, so we set out some pieces in one of Denise's courtyards this morning and snapped away.  We will be featuring a lot of our work at the Chateau de Fleurs coming up
March 4th & 5th and we will also be at the Irvine Flea Market March 6th and of course space H-148 at Long Beach every third Sunday.  Hope to see you or at meet you at any of these events!

My Lovely Ladies and I had fun at Long Beach!

The girls and I did Long Beach on Sunday, it was fun and NO RAIN!  Sophie did great with her things, Bella braved the 2:30 am wake up call and entertained us all day! 

Sophie found a cute way to use her flowers!

Getting Ready for Chateau de Fleurs-Topiaries, Furniture & More!

We're getting ready and excited to be a part of Chateau de Fleurs Marketplace March 4th & 5th! We've been busy creating new products, Denise loves the old world look and has incorporated it into unique topiaries.  She's been working on unique and fun pieces to fit just about any decor.  A couple of new chairs and the tables are in the works.

Looking forward to seeing friends and meeting new ones!
