Friday & Fabulous: Keeping it local.

My apologies for taking such a long hiatus. Most of you know we have been doing our "PCS" (militarycorrectness) move back to NY from Oklahoma. One month later we are still in hotel, waiting to close on a home and I am trying to get all of my ducks in a row for the store. Having that said I don't have a ton of blog time but I really wanted to feature this artist. Leaving NYC and coming up to Northern New York really has me on a mission to utilize local farmers, artists and vendors in every way that I can. He is a Watertown, NY native and an unbelievable talent. A local here (thanks Deanna) sent me his way as he does really ornate and unique cake toppers. We have since chatted a bit on fb and I am excited share his work with all of my friends back in the big city...;)

The artists name is Eric Zabriskie. I am clearly not a journalist so I didn't even attempt to do some sort of interview with him. Really, I am going to provide all you need to know..... check him out, commission his work or buy his stuff on etsy. fabulously home grown.
