Thanksgiving in New Orleans

Hi! How are you? Did you enjoy Thanksgiving weekend? We sure did!

Early Thanksgiving morning, we hopped on the Amtrak bound for our 2nd annual trip to New Orleans. This year we got smart and paid for a sleeper car on the train.  It wasn't spacious, but it made a world of difference! 

As usual we did our fair share of exquisite eating and drinking.......

.......And saw plenty of weird. 

On Thanksgiving night, we saw Rebirth Brass Band. Awesome!

We walked a ton and I managed to snap 100 pictures on my iPhone along the way!

We attended a pop-up bar in the backyard of a Garden district home and drank fancy cocktails made by two well known Nola mixologists. 

As usual, New Orleans did not disappoint. Looking forward to next year! 

Ta-Ta for now!

The Tuesday News: My Holiday Specials

Hi there. How are you? 
Can you believe that it's almost Thanksgiving? 

We're heading to New Orleans again this year for Thanksgiving weekend. Can't wait! Since we'll be out of town for the whole "Black Friday/Small Business Saturday/Cyber Monday" shopping extravaganza, I've decided against doing my usual sale in my etsy shoppe. But don't worry, that doesn't mean there aren't any deals/specials to be had!

Shop Specials:
  • With every purchase between now and December 19th, I'll include one of my gift tags, so you can snazzy up your gift.
  •  I'm also offering a $5.00 discount on any purchase of $20.00 or more.  Just use code "SHOPEARLY" at checkout. 
  • As always if there is something you've seen on or at an art fair that you'd like to purchase, and I don't carry it in my etsy shoppe, I'll still honor the discount!)

Shipping Deadlines:
  • All orders must be placed by Thursday, December 19th to ensure Christmas delivery. 
  • Between December 20th and January 2nd, I'll be on vacation and will be unable to fulfill any orders. So get your shoppin' on now! 
Early Thanksgiving blessings to you! 
See you next Tuesday. Ta-Ta! 

The Tuesday News: Baltimore Oriole Print

Hi there. How are you?
This blog has been long neglected, but I'm to try to step my game. My plan is write a new post every Tuesday. Can you help me stick to it? You have my permission to publicly flog me if I don't post! 

I have to admit, I play favorites. My Baltimore Oriole is so my fave of my bird series. My husband thinks he looks mean. I think he's full of personality! I was thrilled to sell the original Baltimore Oriole piece a couple of weeks ago at holiday craft fair. Now, I can offer the little guy as a print!

The 5" x 7" image is printed with archival pigment based inks on artist quality heavy matte paper. There is a small white border around the print for your matting/framing convenience. It will be signed and titled on the front. At just $12, he'd make a nice holiday gift for any bird nerd. Get your very own Baltimore Oriole print HERE.

One more bit of news....I've got a shop set up over on for the holidays. There's a COUPON CODE over there just waiting for you to use in my shop!

See you next Tuesday. Ta-ta!
