Saturday in Portland!


It turned out to be a wonderful Spring weekend! Bright and early Diane (Molly Mo's) and I attended the second event at Flourishes in Mt. Pleasant. Aleta and Bill Breese created another lovely setting for antiques, collectibles and the work of area artists (including me)! Aleta's umbrella and raindrop theme was so sweet. Polka-dotted paper umbrellas with suspended crystal raindrops. My picture doesn't do it justice.







This picture is a grouping of my work. I looked at it for a minute thinking that's really nice - then realized it was my mine! She makes it all look so nice! Thank you, Aleta.

After leaving Flourishes, we visited the Monticello Antique Mall. They were having a Garden Sale. We found a some treasures there - actually it would be hard not to find something there! Most of my purchases were bits and pieces to make other things. Not too exciting to picture at this point.

From there, we landed in Sellwood and wound up the day walking through the three STARS locations. Of course we found some lunch and had to have coffee for the trip home!

I must get busy and place new items on my pathetic website. It has been so long since it has been updated. I promise to get some new items pictured and - if you see something you can't live without - you can purchase it by contacting me by email. I'll let you know when it is updated! I will also be listing future shows that I will be participating in throughout the summer and fall. Hope to see you there! M.

Hi, Martha -
I did see your sweet things at Flourishes. Ask Betty to tell you about our day. We had an adventure everywhere we stopped. And found treasures. Oh, did we find treasures. I'll share them on my blog soon.

I wish I were closer so I could visit. It looks divine. I had a flood of memories when I saw the asian parasols from the ceiling. Many years ago I did the same thing in my bedroom in college.
