Spotted this large rock on the beach the other day. Folklore says that if you find a rock with an uninterrupted stripe all the way ‘round that you have found a “wish rock.” 

You pick it up, make a wish for someone other than yourself, and throw it into the sea as far as you can. It is said that if you do that then all of YOUR wishes come true...I think it’s working.

Happy Wednesday, all!

SAVE THE DATE. ✔️

Sculptor Larry McLaughlin will be in house all day.  Drop in to meet the artist and enjoy his work in this last show before he returns to Europe this year.

All day viewings mean no crowds. Masks, of course.❤️

Not sure if I would reupholster this chair or leave as it is. What about you?

This image from current CABANA magazine. Fresh copies of Cabana magazine just arrived. I think this publication has the best photography around.

I am excited to host a very low-key opening for the talented Larry McLaughlin on Saturday, May 1.

To keep a roomy and covid-safe atmosphere, it will be ALL DAY so folks can come and go at their leisure. Masks, of course.

A few private appointments also available before and after. Call to reserve. 206.728.6564

Placing the hand on heart with gentle pressure is a simple and effective way to exercise calming self compassion. Try it. ☺️ 

I’m thinking that is what this old saint is trying to convey.

He’s missing his forearm and hand, but he’s lovely. Carved of wood. Chippy original paint. 18 inches tall. DM or call for more photos.
