The only word that will describe this week.

To Celebrate the end of our 2010 season and the first weekend of summer, Sunday June 27, Tiana Gregg will be here playing music in the garden from 3:00-5:00 pm. This is also the release date of her new CD, 'ENDS MEET'

If you are free Sunday afternoon, I invite you out to listen to Tiana's music float over the garden.

Money to Haiti

During last summer's gift show I ordered wonderful, Haitian Fair Trade, metal garden art made from used oil drums. Using just a hammer and a chisel, the artists create these beautiful wall hangings . My order arrived 3 days after the earthquake. Feeling horrible and wanting to help, we made a commitment to donate 20% of each sale to Partners in Health for their continued work in Haiti.

Today I mailed a check to Partners in Health for $1390.00 !
We sold 128 pieces.
Thank you! Thank you, Thank you!
p.s. we have these 3 pieces left...

I'm in love...

After a month of wind and rain, yesterday felt like falling in love.
I was giddy, forgetful and felt as if I had viewed the world for the first time...and it IS beautiful.
