home sweet home

We have been enjoying home since we got back from our last crazy road trip.  Settled in at our beach house, we have been spending some time in the ocean- the water is phenomenal!  Lots of shells and manatees on our last visit.  Soon I’m getting back into the studio, but I plan on making more time for us to spend afternoons like this.

 

We can’t spend all of our time in the water- so I spent a while updating our website with our current inventory while enjoying the air conditioning (it’s HOT down here!).  Check out our latest at barbaraumbel.com.

from the beach, to the city… to the beach

We’re almost ready to leave Florida to head for the Windy City- Chicago is on our minds.  The Old Town Art Fair is this coming weekend, June 9-10.  It is staged in a lovely neighborhood in Lincoln Park, a stone’s throw from Lake Michigan.  The Old Town Triangle Association sponsors the fair and a Garden Walk in their district of historic homes.  The show is a Chicago tradition, drawing a knowledgable and engaged audience. It’s a pleasure to participate in this event, a great kick off to our summer season.

 

From Chicago we cruise to Virginia Beach, VA to show our jewelry at the Boardwalk Art Show sponsored by the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA).  This was one of the first shows of my career as a jewelry artist, and it holds a special place in my heart.  We look forward to spending 4 days with the Atlantic Ocean as our backdrop, greeting old friends and meeting new collectors.

 

If we don’t see you there, we will see you here when we get back!
