Music Grows Here

 

FullSizeRender(2) Living in close proximity to Nashville has its benefits, like having musicians everywhere you turn. So many people move here from all parts of the world to try to make it big in Nashville. The local people also are steeped in musical heritage from the day they are born.

Our little town seems to have become a magnet to musicians and producers who want to be near the action in Nashville, but live in a beautiful, peaceful town. Many musical venues are starting to pop up all over and opportunities for hearing great talents without having to drive to to the big city are abundant.

The most logical next step is to have our own music festival. Announcing the Muletown Music Fest! October 2 & 3 in beautiful, downtown Columbia, TN. Click on the link for all of the details. There are free venues all over downtown as well as 3 ticketed venues. There will be a variety of musical styles to choose from as well as activities for the kids, making this a great family event.

I will have some new additions to my offerings at Wall Candy Custom Framing & Gallery to celebrate the event. There are new mixed-media paintings and jewelry with a musical theme.

Wall Candy will be having its own musical talent there on Saturday. From 12:00-3:00 we will have the lovely and talented Callie Hopper and at 4:00 we will have Sarina Joi-Crowe, a top 12 contestant from American Idol at 4! And guess what? It’s free!

Country Roads

 As I drive down the road from my house…

  I start to see the old familiar sights…

  With new eyes. 

Salt and Light

 

After having lunch with a friend in downtown Columbia, we were looking for something else fun to do. We decided to look around in the antique store on the square for a while. I looked carefully through the whole store and hadn’t found anything that caught my eye and was about to leave, when I spotted a wonderful cache of tiny antique and vintage salt shakers. The glass ones have sterling lids. The wheels started turning in my mind and I snatched them up and brought them home to my studio.

These would make a wonderful place to store a small memento such as a lock of baby hair or to put tiny inspirational messages in. I’m sure your imagination could come up with something interesting.

Several of these are available at Wall Candy and Cliques Hair Salon in Columbia, as well as Heart and Hands on Main St. in Franklin Tennessee. You could also send me a comment or email and I can make one with your color scheme in mind.

 

 

Stained Glass Garden

Stained glass is another one of my varied interests. This is a piece that I created on a double-paned window in the style of a mosaic in which the glass is glued to the backing with clear adhesive and then it is grouted like you would a tile or stone mosaic. It is approx. 2 feet square. I can get you the exact measurements if needed. This piece is available at Wall Candy Custom Framing and Gallery in Columbia, Tennessee.

Back By Popular Demand

Well…back by popular demand and just in time for Mother’s Day, I am offering a jewelry class at The Royal Brush in Columbia Tennessee. Campbell Plaza, Suite 7E, phone: 931-223-5351. We will be learning to use pottery clay to create pendants and other jewelry elements, using stamps and molds. These elements will be fired by The Royal Brush and then we will return and use them to create our own unique adornments. The two days of the class will be Monday, April 23 and Monday, April 30 from 10:00 in the morning until 12:00 noon. The class may take a around two hours for each session, but if you like to take your time, we will take as long as we need. We will create at least two completed pieces, such as a necklace or a bracelet. You will also have several pendants or elements to take home with you and create your own jewelry at home.The price will be $35 and everything will be provided, but if you happen to have your own jewelry pliers, it would be good to bring them. Please either call The Royal Brush, or contact me at 931-987-9374. I would like to have at least 3 students to make the class and will take up to 6 people.

Here is some of the work of the students in my last class, some completed pieces and some waiting to be finished.

In Living Color

I was in the mood to mix it up a bit today as far as color was concerned, mixing my favorites with some contrasting colors and warm wood tones. These will be available at next week’s First Thursday Artisans’ Party at Wall Candy in Columbia, Tennessee.

The party is on April 5th from 5:30 -8:30 P.M. with live music by Cody “Cash” Huber, plenty of tasty food, wine and YOU!


 



 



Blooms and Green

I tried a little something new. The cabochon on this necklace is a stamped, clay piece from my new clay experiments, as is the toggle clasp. The clay was painted after firing, but I think my next ones will be glazed before firing. I’m really having fun with the clay. This Sunday afternoon will be my first class to be taught at The Royal Brush in Columbia, Tennessee. I think I have one more slot to fill if you want to come and join us. You can contact them at:  931.223.5351.

I also wanted to show off my amaryllis blooms. This is the most that I have ever had at one time. I put some coffee grounds in the soil. I don’t know if that made a difference, but I’ll try that again. A little taste of spring inside.
