Window Two

On a sunny, sunny Wednesday the second window got a refresh with a nod to the outdoors and gardening. Heather spent hours double stick taping old book pages to the wall to create a sort of wallpaper. The day before that was my task with vintage music sheets. It has become a Watson Kennedy trademark of sorts. Ahhhhh, the wonders of push pins & double stick tape. We reach for them time and time again. Then out came the old ladder from storage as well as the French folding garden table. The shoe form lamp came down from the Market shop, as I thought it would be stellar in this window with the chicken wire shade. The shoe forms then became a running theme, pun intended, along the tops of both window units to unify them. Then my beloved green took center stage as goods began to get pulled and we once again were putting together a visual, layered puzzle.



Loretta Trevino Painting Raffle at WK

We had the great pleasure of having artist Loretta Trevino painting at our Anniversary Holiday Open House this past Saturday. A Pacific Northwest native who now resides in Texas, she charmed all who stopped to chat with her while she painted her iconic houses. In the spirit of the passing holiday of thanks, Loretta thought it might be fun to raffle off one of her works. “Washington Barn” will go to the lucky winner, chosen this Friday. Simply leave a comment here, or on the Watson Kennedy social media platforms of Instagram or Facebook, of what you are MOST GRATEFUL FOR this season. You have until the end of the day this Thursday to enter. Good luck! 



The Houses of Loretta Trevino

20151222-071931.jpg Just In, the lovely house paintings by artist, Loretta Trevino. I was so taken with these when Loretta first showed me images of her work, so am thrilled to have a good grouping of them gracing the shop walls at the Home store. Vivid colors set the tone for her sublime works. Art speaks to the soul. What I love most about original works is you get to see the brush strokes and feel the energy put forth in the piece. We hope to have a revolving grouping of houses, filling them in with more as they sell. Keeping the neighborhood ever evolving.
