Today we are at the Artists and Fleas market in Williamsburg (off the Bedford L stop). The place is full of gems of all kinds and the music is popping! We’ll be here til 7.
First, an announcement — next Saturday Blue Dot will be for sale at the oh so lovely Artists and Fleas market in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It’s a beautifully curated collection of vendors, if I do say so, and I’m honored to be included. If you’re a New York neighbor, come by and say hi!
And our Silver Starburst Earrings now come with teal blue highlights! Color is all different for us because we live in a silver world over here. More colors to come…
I revisited an old design this weekend… a quiet deer among the leaves. For this piece, the deer is always the centerpiece, but I like to change the scenery from piece to piece. I have also given this a wood-grained surface texture, which feels more organic than a high shine.
I know talking about spring won’t make it come any faster, but doggonit, I’m trying!
We took a late afternoon stroll through Prospect Park yesterday. The snow was mostly all trampled in the Long Meadow, which tells you just how many people had been out for a romp yesterday, but it was still a beautiful scene. Some sledders had figured out how to go SO FAST. There were tiny munchkins experiencing their first snow, nearly unable to move in their in puffy snowsuits, and adults zipping down hills (barely in control) on anything from food trays and inner tubes to good old fashioned toboggans. It was all a funny sight.
There was even a larger than life snowman dedicated to Ed Koch in the center of the meadow, which had a steady cluster of fans in attendance. There were snowpeople sneaking up on snowpeople. And the snow bear was my favorite sighting!
I had a lot of fun with this project. My sisters and I are big fans of dinosaurs and have been since we were little, like so many other kids. They are just fascinating. Today I like them for their different lines and shapes — true wonders of nature, better than fiction!
These will be silver soon. What better way to show your Jurassic love? 🙂
(P.S. I make no claims to be historically accurate. I just read this: The time difference between when tyrannosaurus and stegosaurus lived is greater that the time difference between tyrannosaurus and now. Jaw drop! I’m sure Jurassic doesn’t apply to all the above.)
