even if we will never wear anything like this we can appreciate the artistry & beauty.


As I've mentioned, I'm in the Texas hill country with my daughter for awhile.
We both have so many ideas, none of them alike.
We want to open a shop for her & are looking around to see if the
right location & ambiance is available somewhere, so a lot of exploring.
Real estate prices both for sale and rental vary widely as so many things are
owned by individuals whose needs are so different.  We've decided the only factor
to consider is if we "feel it."  

She wants only Texas artisans.
I'm thinking a bit more eclectic, with everything in the shop being for sale, 
including the rugs, the display tables (which would be beautiful old pieces),
the armoires which would hold goods, etc.
Fresh flowers abounding.  Planted containers filled with blooms, which would be
suitable as gifts or as an instant adornment to any room in your home.

And, of course, Splenderosa jewelry in a small unpretentious spot !

And, maybe my son's photography.

BTW, Houston people, there is a new restaurant just opened in the Montrose area

(like the underbelly of a city only the insider's know).

Totally cool place with fabulous foods, the owner had the impeccable taste
to choose Steve's work to hang on the walls.  Is this wonderful or what?

Thank you to everyone who has ordered our jewelry recently.
I, me personally, am overwhelmed with joy that you like what I like.

Please know how much I value your comments. I read every single one and do hope you will take the time to leave your thoughts. I think InstaGram with the Emojis have taken a lot away from blogging, but I love IG too.
