Remember to visit Garfield Conservatory: Silver Linings


You must travel through the West side of Chicago...


...to arrive at Jensen's Jewel.


Be sure to see this fun show and breathe it in!


Channel the cloud with a Silver Lining: Gratitude.


You may even be able to time travel. This enduring place has worked its magic for people since 1908.
AND here's a question: don't the arches in the photo on the above link look like Louis Sullivan???

The Landscape of Felt


Since the flowers are dormant, I thought I'd show some beautiful colors and textures that I see coming and going from my office. These felt marvels are in the Evanston studio, Ausrine's Arts Room, of the wonderful artist, Ausrine Kerr.

Little Free Library Landscape


Recently, I was so delighted to run into a former client about whom I had written an earlier post. That post talked of her enthusiasm about her worm bin in the basement and how she shared it with other kids at her daughters' schools.
This time, she shared an addition to their garden which you can see above. I was thrilled to learn about Little Free Library. Hope you are too!

Ezra Siegel: "Best of Show" Evanston Big Fork Art Festival Sept. 27-28, 2014


A big sister must brag...


I selected the shots that show Ezra's paintings in his booth. To see a much more thorough representation of his work go to his website.


Blame me for making him pose under this hat painting. I prefer the abstract works but I believe his hanging this literal piece amidst them brings out their abstraction.
