"The Beautiful Mystery" is the theme of my Chistmas Show. Here are some of the items I am working on and will be packing up and taking to Tinsel Trading this coming week, and also showing at my own open house. I am getting really excited about being able to spend some time in New York in the month of November! Monica (my 21 yr. old daughter) and I will be having lunch at Bergdorf Goodman, overlooking Central Park!

HAS ARRIVED!!! When I walk out to feed the cats in the morning, I can see my breath, and the patio is papered with little yellow leaves. The look and feel of the outside permeates my work at this time of year. Gilded oak leaves, and glittered acorns, and mirrored things that reflect like the pools of silvery rain. I am busy in the workshop making special things for my upcoming Christmas shows. First, on Fri. & Sat. Nov.14 & 15, I will be in New York, at my favorite store, Tinsel Trading! (212 730-1030) I will bring a trunk load of magic with me, including many of the items pictured. Two weeks later, I will be having my own Christmas Open House at my shop in Port Costa, on Fri, Sat, and Sun, Nov. 28, 20, & 30. (The weekend after Thanksgiving). Please call for directions to my shop (510 787-2164) I will post more pictures tomorrow, please check back!
