THE Wedding, Kane County, Vote for Sherman!

If I were not already a Francophile, I would definitely be an Anglophile. I'm not sure you can be both, as least not in one lifetime. But that isn't going to stop me from getting up early tomorrow to watch part of the royal wedding. I've got my crumpets, tea and strawberries with cream all ready to go! How 'bout you?
But I'll only be watching 'til it's time to head down to the studio. We have a GREAT load going for this weekend's Kane County Flea Market. Since the first Sunday of May falls on the 1st, the market is extra early this time. Click on the show sidebar for details.

We are working on lots of fun stuff -- garden, industrial, smalls, furniture, graphics and more. We will be featuring these wonderful journals, all made from vintage books by our awesome friend and customer, Tina Mullins, Coach House Drygoods. The journals make excellent gifts for graduation, Mother's Day, you name it. Plus you're sure to need one or two for yourself! And we've restocked our limited-addition posters, like the lovely French hot air balloon pictured below. They sold out early last month, so be sure to take a peek before they all gone!

Last thing. Many of you know our great show neighbor and friend, Mark McKee, of Gold Key Antiques. Well, Mark's partner, Mark (Sherman) Trombley, is one of 12 semi-finalists in the National Culinary Competition. He needs every one's vote to go on to the finals in New York. To view Sherman's short video, click here. To vote for Sherman, click here. Sherman's category is "Hospitals 2;" (you can ask him to explain!) and his recipe is Asparagus and Edamane Sformato with Wild Forest Mushrooms and Hazelnuts in a Caramelized Onion and Mushroom Demi-Glace. Fancy! You can vote only once per platform (phone, computer, laptop, etc.) -- so please pass the word! Best of luck, Sherman!

See you at the show! xo

I love that print of the Queen. I so need to be out at shows, but not yet as I'm still painting walls. :)
Hope your show was wonderful.
