Downtown Petaluma just keeps getting better and better.

Downtown Petaluma just keeps getting better and better. One of the latest creative additions is the B Street Mercantile.

I love everything about this beautiful store, especially in that it highlights local artists & crafters. I am a big believer in supporting local businesses, especially the artsy-crafty ones!

I am enjoying seeing an insurgence of interest in handcrafted goods as opposed to  mass-produced, imported goods.

I hope people continue to be inspired and tap into their own creative side.

In the meantime, SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL CRAFTERS and check out this wonderful new store!

Get Inspired!

There are those who are talented, and then there are those who are REALLY talented!

Such a person is Cathe Holden, who I have known for several years. We met when I was a dealer at Summer Cottage Antiques in Petaluma, CA, and we became friends.

Shortly after that she also became a very successful dealer at Summer Cottage, and is now doing so many incredible things in the national crafting world I wouldn’t know where to begin.

Good things are meant to be shared, so I thought I’d share Cathe with you! Check her out at her website “Just Something I Made” where you can get all of her updates, including where she will be to do book signings for her new book!

FABULOUS Boho Chic “Glamping” in Style!

OK. so, for a long time now I’ve been thinking about selling everything and hitting the road for a “glamping” excursion (in a retro’d Vintage Airstream Silver Bullet, just so ya know!).

Then, I just happened to come across this website while on a random internet search. 

check out the Magnolia Pearl Clothing website if you haven’t heard of her clothing before. Now THIS is what I’m talking about!
