Open House this weekend—December 3-4, Saturday and Sunday 11-6.

It's wonderful to be hosting an all new show and sale this year with the enticing work of Vivienne Jones, Brad Copping, Sue Rankin (and myself) on Saturday and Sunday, Dec 3 - 4.  I hope we'll see you! 

I've made new zipper bags, cozy up-cycled wool throws for the long winter ahead, fun tea cozies, new linen scarves, handy hand towels, sewing kits, aprons, lavender filled pieces and more cool stuff, just in time for gift giving or to treat yourself!  There's always a range of mixed media pieces on show as well. 

If you haven't been in the neighbourhood recently, Roncesvalles Renewed is complete—new restaurants, shops and cafes have opened.

Upcoming show

I've been so busy in the studio! My friend Gordana has invited me to join her as a guest in her home on the Open Rhodes Studio Tour (Art Show & Sale) on Rhodes Avenue in the east end of Toronto this weekend.

I will be at 704 Rhodes Avenue with artists Gordana Olujic (mixed media) and Bobin Dosic (painting).

I'm donating to the raffle in support of the Red Door and tickets will be available at the tour. More info appears on the invite...
