MEET ZIPPY

A few months ago, I agreed to foster a small Long-Haired Daschund for my Mother.  She works tirelessly as an animal rescuer for an animal shelter in North Louisiana.  After having success fostering and finding a home for a wire-haired Jack Russell Terrier, I thought I was really getting good at the foster home angle. Little did I know, that Zippy would steal my heart.  So now I have three dogs.  It’s a bit much but I couldn’t trade any of them for anything.  And now I have a shopkeep! If anyone is interested in a dog like Zippy let me know.  There are twenty small dogs that were rescued this week from a hoarder and they are all in need of love and homes.  Homeless adopted animals make wonderful companions and they will be eternally grateful!

NEW DIGS!
Last Friday, I officially became the owner of beautiful building on Magazine Street!! It is an 1840′s building that was the site of the first Federal Pharmacy.  It’s all brick and beautiful.  I have my studio and showroom downstairs with a courtyard and warehouse and my apartment upstairs with a wraparound balcony.  This is one of the main reasons I’ve been neglecting the blog.  Trying to move, getting set-up, and closing on the property took priority over everything else.  Now I can resurface! Please stop by and see the new space-it’s at 1382 Magazine Street, on the corner of Magazine and Terpsichore.  (four blocks uptown from the interstate) I love my new neighborhood and my new neighbors! There’s even a really great coffee shop across the street called the Corner Muse.  I feel so lucky and so excited!

PEACHES RECORDS

This weekend I made a trip down to the French Quarter to buy a record player.  I had met Kent (the owner) the afternoon before at the Chart Room and was excited to know he would be there the next day.  Peaches Records has been in his family for years and is the place to go for records here in New Orleans.  The Ion player that I bought can hook up to your computer so you can preserve your records and share them with friends.  I picked up a great Lou Rawls album, some Earth Wind and Fire, and some Hall and Oates.  Most new albums are coming out on vinyl too which is so fun! Definitely worth a trip, and ask for Kent!

INSPIRATIONS

I walked down to Bush Antiques the other day to bite the bullet and buy a French three-quarters daybed that had been haunting me.  I started to talking to the very talented Andy from the shop and he asked me when I was going to update my blog.  I was thinking the same thing and I promised I would post soon.  When I walked into the shop, I found my post.  Andy had just completed the top vignette and the colors and compostition were so beautiful.  I wanted to share it and thank Andy for inspiring me to get back into some blogging….Enjoy!
