Bazaar at Shorewood Elementary, November 12, 10-4

It’s that time of year for early holiday shopping. Local bazaars feature artists with home-made arts & crafts. I was lucky to get in (at the last minute!) to this growing Shorewood Elementary Holiday Bazaar.

I’ll be showcasing polaroid transfers, wooden photo blocks and my NEW dictionary art! Plus my signature matchboxes and new domino magnets.

It takes place this Saturday, November 12 from 10am-4pm at Shorewood Elementary, 2725 SW 116th St, Burien, WA 98146. I invite you to stop by!

Loving Our Landmarks

It was another successful fundraising event for the Southwest Seattle Historical Society’s 32nd anniversary Champagne Gala Brunch. Local ‘stars’ were out at Salty’s on Alki to help raise money for some of our favorite local West Seattle Landmarks like the Admiral Theater and Alki Homestead. Their latest campaign – “We Love The Junction” – is designed to landmark the Campbell Building (home of Cupcake Royale) built in 1911/1920 and the 1926 Hamm Building, home of Easy Street Records.

West Seattle may be growing by leaps and bounds but there is definitely a desire to preserve our local heritage. Be sure to visit the “Birthplace of Seattle” Log House Museum.
