The Sunday Night Digest = me + glass of wine + reflection on the previous weeks ongoings and a glimpse into happenings next week. You're Welcome.
Happy Full Moon. This week I have been painting up a storm and yes, I have even started on holiday ornaments and pulling out the decor. When I think about our annual holiday party on Saturday, November 30 (save the date!) being about a month and a half away I just can't totally wrap my head around it, but I’m excited for the scent of our Newport Tree Lighting candle to be ever present along with a wreath pop-up with greenlion. More details to follow in the coming weeks, but don't mind me if I am humming White Christmas already.
After some seasonal cleaning I am ready to do another auction starting this Wednesday. I am so thrilled as the last one in July was great fun and this one will have about twice the content! Stay tuned Wednesday - Friday this week.
As soon as the temperatures drop and really Columbus Day weekend itself, sends me into organization nation. I watched the Bill Gate three part docuseries on Netflix and found some serious inspiration to get a few things in order, starting with my website. I know, I know, it’s not saving the world from Polio or climate change, but I have to start somewhere. Find a whole easy to view selection of artwork here, objects here and the things I am really loving for fall here.
A big thanks to everyone that sent in images of art installed in their homes and businesses. I have been able to use so many of them to show what a difference art makes! Going through them all I find them all so inspiring - so thank you!

Speaking of inspirational, here's a list of a few dozen Instagram accounts in Rhode Island I find inspiring. I hope you find a few new creatives to follow and be sure to leave your recommendations in the comments!
Our fall hours through October are Friday & Saturday 12-4pm and Sunday & Monday 12-3pm and online always. We will be open a bit more for the holidays in November and December but in the meantime I am taking some extra time to get more painting and more candles and ornaments finished in time for the the busy shopping season ahead!
