OOoo...I love my new-again lamp!

well all...Things have been busy again here at the studio! So much info coming your way over the next week or so. Summer seems to be gearing up to be a busy season. So much so that I seem to be doing so much of my computer work late at night from the comforts of my bedroom...often even my bed! Don't we love the invention of the laptop! This is when I felt compelled to revamp my beloved bedside lamp.
As you can see from the pics...the lamp had a bronzed finish to it and a great "bulb" of purple glass at the base. That little bit of purple glass is what made me fall in love with the lamp when I first bought it years ago...you know me and glass! I deceided to paint out the bronze with an antique white latex paint and to highlight the detail work I did a little distressing. To bump up the lamps' funk factor I added a chartreuse tassle! I have already enjoyed my new again lamp by reading "The curious incident of the dog in the night time" by Mark Haddon...a recommended read by my physician.

Canadian Bloggers take note!

Hey everyone...

I have been hard at work this past week tending to the new flowers which are popping up in our new yard! One of the things that I love about spring & being in a house that is new to you. It is like little surprises with each season. LOVE IT!

I have also been busy preparing a collection to submit to another local business. Can you believe it...? This time I will have to take pictures prior to "letting my pieces go" to their new home. That way you all can see them!
Another exciting new bit that is happening here at the sutdio is that I have found a directory of Canadian blogs! That means we Canadians can be in touch with other Canadians super easily...not that we don't love all of our fellow bloggers & followers. http://www.blogs.ca/ describes themselves as a social network and directory for Canadian bloggers and their readers. You can submit and promote your own blog, follow other blogs and comment on your favorite sites. Studio Equinox Glass is listed as an "Approved Blog"! Lets see some votes...

tweet!

Hey all...



Well my posts have been few and far between as of yet but that doesn't mean that I have forgotten you! I have been hard at work renovating my kitchen...oh the nightmare....

And, I have been scouting out shops around this beautiful town to sell my wares. I came across the lovely "Willow" in her shop House of Indigo in downtown Nanaimo BC. I am pleased to say that Studio Equinox designs are now available for purchase there! Yay, to new partnerships!

I have also been busily setting up Studio Equinox's new facebook page & a twitter account. You got it...I can now be followed on Twitter!

Here are some examples of my work:
