A Casa

Home again. There is always a reentry I must go through when returning from the US to Italy. An adjustment of sorts. Language changes, weather changes, food changes, hour changes, you get the picture. I have no idea if this happens to others who share their lives between two different countries...but a metamorphosis of sorts must occur with me to get back on track.

I had a wonderful holiday filled with family, friends, trips, food, wine, art, a card game or two. I saw those I had not seen in many moons and shared lots of laughs and even a cry. To be a little was filled with every emotion possible...and I loved every minute of it. To say that the trip was not long enough is an understatement, but then again, it is always like this...better for it to be too short than too long in my book.
Nephew Big Al is continuing to grow and now walk and even a one year old supposed to do this? My sister and her husband hosted our Christmas to perfection with family meal traditions and "Flo stockings"...thanks you two. I traveled around the Carolinas searching for mountains and you all may know, it was not all that hard to find. I rang in the new year with crostini, rose spumante, and a dance party. I swam with sharks and brightly colored things...or at least I had the sensation. I braved the cold for my special Laura Fair reception at one of my favorite places on the Savannah River, the Morris Museum of Art. I was so happy to see old friends and new faces and to meet some amazing children...I should say teenagers...who blew me away with their confidence and grace (and even called me ma'am!) I fell down...twice to be exact, in the treacherous ice storm of 2011 in Atlanta...and nervously drove through it to make client meetings. All worth it as good things are coming down the line amici...I am beyond happy with the results and will update you on new product soon. Now I am back to it...refreshed and revived with ideas and inspiration...of course some walks through the countryside did not hurt either.

Buon anno di nuovo a tutti...happy new year again to all of you. May you see all your dreams come true in 2011. I think it will happen...starting to feel it already...

Morris Museum of Art

I am so happy to tell you all about something really special. I have been meaning to mention it for a while now, but my holiday goodness got in the way. Now that the new year has begun, it is time to get back into the swing of things.

This Sunday, January 9, 2011 from 2:00 - 4:00 pm, the Morris Museum of Art will be hosting a "Meet the Artist" for me at the museum in downtown Augusta, Georgia. This is especially touching to me, as I have loved the museum since in opened its doors in the early 1990's, and even contemplated working there right out of school. It hosts a stunning art collection specifically dedicated to Southern Art and Artists of the United States...isn't that great? I hope that anyone who will be in the area will come by to see me...and I will be sure to update here with pictures soon after the event. Thank you again to Kelly Catlett and the entire Morris crew...I am beyond appreciative for this opportunity!

Buon Anno

Happy New Year, Buon Anno a tutti...I hope that all of you had a very festive holiday! Just in time to assist me in my battle with writing 2011 instead of 2010, here is a little peek at our new Laura Fair Perpetual Calendars with matching Month and Day Patterned Glass Magnets debuting for January 2011! They are made of antiqued metal and come in a box set in two coordinating colors. Shown above is the celery green version, and there is also one in turquoise blue! Cannot wait to get my hands on one so I can get my studio life organized...

On my way to the Atlanta International Gift and Home Furnishings market again where Lone Elm Studios will be selling these, along with all the other items in our Laura Fair collection, in their showroom in Building 2 #1363B. So, if you are attending the Atlanta sure to stop by. Better yet, let me know so I can meet you there!
