Well then!

Hi, folks!

Well, here in New England, the weather has been absolutely beautiful. Hardly a cloud in the sky for the past seven days! At times like this, I should be weeding the garden and getting it ready for the winter. However, I've been working a lot (which is good) and spending a lot of time relaxing (which is even better).

Anna and I went to see Taking Woodstock yesterday:

The movie was long.  Really long. It was more of a coming-of-age movie than a comedy, which was how it was billed in the commercials. It didn't spend much time on the concert; most of its focus was on the people around the concert. I would have liked to see more plot expansion and more depth in the movie's characters. There is so much to fit into a movie about Woodstock, though, that I'm sure it's difficult to prioritize.
However, that isn't to say it was terrible. It was definitely worth the $7.50 we paid to get in (thank you, matinee prices at Hollywood Hits!). The adorable Dimitri Martin was able to remain convincingly doe-eyed and innocent, even in the face of his first acid trip (a scene we maybe could have done without, suggested Anna. I concur). Eugene Levy and Emile Hirsch were both good, too - who could resist Eugene Levy, though? 
On no basis whatsoever, I give the movie 3.5 out of 5 stars. :-)


And now, here are a couple of items we sold and relisted:

A truly amazing handmade item. This Tibetan pressed silver-plated bookmark holds a surprise - seven pure rock crystal beads, for starters. Silver-plated, ball-ended head pins. A celestial motif.

At the bottom of the bookmark, though, is its crowning glory: a luminous, vintage, blue Venetian glass teardrop. The teardrop is almost 1.5cm long. Its origins are unclear, but it is likely to have come from an estate sale or a forgotten storeroom.

The bookmark itself is over 12 cm long, although we can't imagine that you'll want to keep it in a book for very long!
These are much like our Olive You More earrings, except that the components are silver and a cooooooooool blue!

Gorgeous, silver-plated kidney wires measuring a whopping 1-7/8" by themselves! Added on are ice blue, painted glass beads flanked by acrylic seed beads.

Whimsical sophistication at its best!

Comes boxed or bagged and ready to gift - free - as with all our items.

And finally, I'm working on a bunch of new pieces for Sisters We Three, a delightful new consignment shop in Newburyport, MA. I am privileged to be selling my work there along with 167 other artists and artisans. We're gearing up for the holiday season! If you're in the neighborhood, make sure to stop by - they have some great deals there!
Thanks for reading, and see you next time!
