Denise Fiedler Dog or Cat Collage Workshop at WK

So happy to report another fab workshop coming up! Renowned collage artist Denise Fiedler will be in Seattle on Saturday the 23rd of November at Watson Kennedy teaching a dog & cat collage workshop. What an amazingly cool piece of art to create of your pet. Either as a beloved gift or to keep yourself. My hope is we fill up two classes that day, beginning with the afternoon session, from 2 o’clock to 4. If that fills up we will do another from 10 to noon that day. Price for the class is $125, which includes all materials. Please call or text me directly at 206.617.9678 to reserve your spot. Class size is limited. That also happens to be our Holiday Open House that day too, so stop in for a glass of bubbly! As a little gift from me to you, collage class participants will receive a 20% off discount on WK shopping at either or both shops that day.



Denise Fiedler Collage Workshops May 11th

Excited to have my friend, the incredibly talented artist, Denise Fiedler, back up from San Francisco for another round of fab collage workshops. You might remember she was scheduled to come to Seattle over Valentine’s Day week-end, but our big snowstorm thwarted that trip. We filled up an afternoon collage session then, which will happen this trip. We are hoping to fill up the 10 to noon workshop this go round. Flowers, among other things, will be the emphasis. Denise has such a wonderful way of connecting with and teaching folks her sublime method of collage. Layer after layer of beauty to create a one of a kind work of art. That you created! Last year was a huge hit and all the participants had a grand time. The cost for the workshop is $95. You also get a 25% discount that day while shopping at Watson Kennedy. It also happens to be the Mother’s Day Open House–lots of activity and fun stuff planned. So grab a friend or come solo for a lovely morning in the Market. Your spot must be reserved and paid for by calling me directly at 206.617.9678. Quite possibly the perfect Mother’s Day gift! I so hope you can join us.

Random Thoughts

We head to Hawthorne early tomorrow morning. The day before we leave my mind is always a jumble of thoughts and task lists. Much like the post today! For those of you new to following along on daily blog, you can watch a fun video interview I did awhile back with Susanna Salk on Stacey Bewkes’ beyond lovely blog, Quintessence. Their At Home with series is not to be missed, as they are a creative feast for the eyes with lots of inspiration & design tips along the way. Click here to watch.

The above a bit of the view from my shop in the Market. Autumn has started out with a glorious bang here in Seattle. The crisp days and cool skies something else. The below a cherished piece by Denise Fiedler for our upcoming 20th anniversary of Watson Kennedy on November 23rd. Lots of fun stuff planned. Details to follow. So this Hawthorne stay will be a major rest up for a super busy few months the moment we arrive back in Seattle. I am incredibly excited for both!



Denise Fiedler Ships

Just In, a fresh round of Denise Fiedler ships have sailed into the shops. They found their way up on the wall almost instantly as these gems have been the runaway hit this Summer. They combine vintage papers that she cuts out and then draws on to create truly special one of a kind works of art. The simple thin black frames allows you to prop them up in a bookcase, hang them on the wall or lay it flat on a coffee table as a conversation piece in place of an art book. Stylish and versatile.

Denise Fiedler Original Dog Drawings

Just In, just the sweetest drawings by one of my favorite people ever, Denise Fiedler. We have carried her cut-out pieces for ages, which I have long adored. So we jumped at the chance when she told us she was adding original drawings to her mix. For all of us pooch fans out there, these are whimsical & fun works to place or hang here and there.



My Favorite Things Today

Summer is such a busy bustling season for us at the shops.  So many folks in from all parts of the globe, which makes each day incredibly interesting & full. Box after box arrives each day keeping our shelves nice and full.  A quick walk around, I snapped away some of my favorite things of the moment to enjoy on this Sunday.



My Favorite Things Today

A quick spin around the shop on a busy day produced some really fun new stuff that has shown up recently. Along with a few tried & true that always just make my heart sing. These are a few of my favorite things at the moment. Little delights that caught my eye.

20150617-052203.jpg I like this image on just about anything. A Scalamandre classic. Who knew paper napkins could be so chic.



20150617-052431.jpg A variety of peppy and preppy picture frames that I found at the New York show on this last trip in May.


20150617-052615.jpg Maps, boats, shells and overall beachy things always make me smile.

20150617-052728.jpg As does a good travel journal.

20150617-052830.jpg The Summer issue has arrived. Be a smarty pants with your beach reading. Equals out the People magazine next to it in your beach bag.

20150617-053124.jpg I mean seriously, these are so good they bring a tear to my eye. Just lovely. A dish towel but would be swell as an oversized napkin for alfresco dining.

20150617-053350.jpg Sweet, sweet, sweet little Denise Fielder gift tags to make any package special.

20150617-053502.jpg For a stylish quick roll of the dice.

20150617-053708.jpg Santa Maria Novella pot-pourri has become a Watson Kennedy staple.

20150617-053812.jpg I know I had this image posted last week, but I am still a bit weak in the knees over all the Livia Cetti flowers dotting the displays, I just had to add this to the list.

20150617-053950.jpg And lastly, QUIN Candy assorted bags of their delicious sweet edibles. Bumps up the flavor quotient for a candy dish. My grandmother Watson always had a candy dish on the coffee table when I was a little kid. This bag of treats makes me want to do the same.

Happy, happy Wednesday everyone! Hope all is swell & dandy in your part of the world.
