Jill is a Santa Cruz local, I met her in the shop, she buys a lot of my cool stuff and we got to talking one day about these stones she crochets. Crocheted stones!!! I told her she must bring them in immediately. I am so in love with the stones and the rest of her art. She is fabulous at painting animals, or even stitching by hand free form on felt. She volunteers at the Native Animal Rescue of Santa Cruz, and has five cats, so animals are near to her heart. I could go on and on about her and all of the other fabulous art she comes up with, but I'm hoping you will come in and see for yourself. She's also got an etsy shop if you can't make it in.
These mini bunnies paintings are so amazing,
I'm so lucky I get first dibs because I snatched them right up,
they are the perfect Christmas gift for a friend who I bet is not reading my blog so I'm not worried ;-)
I also picked 3 pretty nice stones for myself,
but there are plenty more for you here.
She is making them as fast as she can, and 70% of sales are going to this scholarship:
Health Care Endowed Scholarship for students enrolled in Cabrillo College’s Allied Health Programs including Radiologic Technology, Nursing, Dental Hygiene, Dental Assisting, Medical Assisting and other healthcare related programs in celebration of Cabrillo’s 50th Anniversary.
Saffron and Genevieve 910B Soquel Ave, Santa Cruz, California 95062 Inside a spacious and lovely Victorian with twelve foot ceilings and wood plank walls, Saffron and Genevieve offers a delightful mix of comfortable furnishings, antiques and offbeat gifts. I hand pick everything in the shop, and don’t tend to bring in anything I would not have in my own home. I sell both old and new, but the new better be very special because I have a connection with the old, the stories and soul of a piece are almost as important as the beauty (or ugliness). I design my own furniture and lighting, refurbish vintage upholstered pieces and repurpose any interesting treasures I can get my hands on. I am not trendy, and prefer a finished home to look timeless, classic, and whimsical. It should be comfortable and work with the way you live. There are no hard and fast rules in my book, I like to make them up as I go. This blog is about my shop, and me, the merchandise for sale, interior design, buying trips and special events. Most of the merchandise featured is for sale and shipping can be arranged. Please call or email for availability: 831-462-4506. Thanks for looking!
