Cactus Miniatures

Cactus Miniatures

The title of this post is a bit misleading. It should read, but doesn’t because it’s too long, is “Cactus Gallery‘s 7th Annual Tiny Miniatures Show Opens This Saturday, December 8th.” Forty-five artists will be participating, exhibiting holiday ornaments; mixed media, acrylic, and oil paintings; sculptures and toys; and ceramics and jewelry. All the artwork [...]

Feynes Mansion Tours Begin

Feynes Mansion Tours Begin

We may be entering a Southern California winter, but why not come visit a “summer home”? The particular summer home we’re talking about would be Fenyes Mansion, which reopens to the public this Friday, December 7th, after a two year, $1.7 million renovation (funded by the Paloheimo Foundation). Docent-led tours—and these are very well-trained docents [...]

Yellow, Yellow

Yellow, Yellow

If you get a chance to amble down Huntington Drive just East of Garfield Avenue, you’ll experience a wash of yellow. The trees growing in the median catch the sunlight and dazzle, while the leaves that have fallen make a carpet underneath, creating the appearance of stripes against the green grass in between. Driving by, [...]

David Kipen at Literary Fest & Tree Lighting

David Kipen at Literary Fest & Tree Lighting

The holidays and literature seem to go hand-in-hand, so rather than ringing in the season with only the flick of a switch to “light” the Christmas tree, Allendale Public Library is adding a literary angle to the event. David Kipen, proprietor of Libros Schmibros (a lending Library and used bookshop) in Mariachi Plaza and book correspondent [...]

A Taste of Fall

A Taste of Fall

  It’s not an East Coast fall—with hundred year old maples blinding you with thousands of bright yellow leaves, or the next tree with mixes of oranges, or the one after that with shades of reds from raspberry to burgundy. Here in Southern California, we have to look for our fall. We found a patch [...]

Holiday Dinner à la Julienne

Holiday Dinner à la Julienne

Is cooking not your thing? Would you rather be gift shopping than thumbing through cookbooks and braving the grocery store? Rather be relaxed, laughing, and chatting with a cocktail in hand than cringing and frantic as the green beans get cold, the mash potatoes gluey, and the filet is a 20 minutes away from barely [...]

SGV’s Holiday Lights & Fun

SGV’s Holiday Lights & Fun

We are simply suckers for holiday decorating, whether it’s inside or out, one tree on a small lawn, or a mansion decked to the hilt. In case you do as well, here are some holiday “holiday lighting” sights to see, as well as local holiday events. Do you have any experiences to share? Events, streets, [...]
