Santa Fe Calling!

This is the third year in a row that I will be selling my artwork at the Girls, Inc. Show in Santa Fe.


My friend, Leia, makes this this road trip possible, because she has the booth, the displays, the “in.”
She also has room on the wall of her booth, which I fill up wit my rustic folk art…
a perfect combination!



Leia makes and sells the most gorgeous beaded necklaces, using turquoise, spiny oyster, silver, and other quality stones.


She also custom fits what I call gaucho hats…the palm leaf hats with the super wide brims, and sells handmade hatbands and hurricane straps to outfit them just right.


 After meeting up in Flagstaff, we always stop at La Posada in Winslow going both directions.
It’s a sin to pass by and not stop at the Turquoise Room for sustenance…
plus, I’ll sell art pieces at the gift shop on the way back through.



We stop in Gallup, then end our day’s journey in Bernalillo…
home of the Range Cafe and the Home on the Range Gift shop, where I have some more of my artwork.


The next day, after devouring huevos rancheros at the Range, we head up to Santa Fe, take a quick run to the Teseque  swap meet, set up downtown, checkout a favorite shop, and have a delicious dinner, and rest up to
work on Saturday and Sunday.


On Monday we have a free day to visit Leia’s friend, Heidi, at her gallery on Canyon Road, to wander, shop, and eat more delicious food, before returning home on Tuesday!

See you next week everyone!
