April 2009


While setting up my booth for the Azalea Festival on Saturday April 18th, I spotted the best old house.  It had everything going for it: massive size, rundown, and all indications that it was once a gorgeous site.  This house demanded my exploration.  Apparently, the town uses it for a haunted house around Halloween.  Faux cobwebs draped the porch ceiling.  Danger! Caution signs were posted.  I need to know the history here.  It’s in Pickens, SC, directly behind Main Street.

This new mannequin arrived on my doorstep on Monday and I couldn’t wait to photograph some of my new necklaces on her.  I’m calling her Vivian and she’s very easy to get along with.  I will have her at shows this spring.
