Listen to Scotland’s Natalie Clark, peruse the wearable art, then stop for a beverage in the Wine & Beer Garden before snacking on the Friends of the Sierra Madre Library‘s ever-popular sweet “quick” breads.

Ojai Marvels

Ojai Marvels

The lull after Christmas and before the new year was a perfect time to take a jaunt to Ojai. Though we were experiencing almost continuous rain, we managed to snag a few hours between downpours.

Ulla’s Spring & the Ancestors

Ulla’s Spring & the Ancestors

We admit, we’ve got it bad for Ulla. Let us clarify, Ulla’s Art. Ulla Anobile herself is quite wonderful with a dry wit, which is perhaps thanks to her Finnish origins and for which we then thank her Finnish ancestors.

Ivy & Bean Day

Ivy & Bean Day

Forget the perilous Elmer’s Glue, that sinful substance that stripped the finish off my dining room table after I completed my mobile solar system for the 4th grade astronomy fair. (Needless to say, my little sister was allowed only glue sticks.) This weekend, you can let someone else host the science-project mess if you bring your […]

Zinnia

Thanks to Zinnia, we may never have to set foot in the dreaded Michael’s again. This is a craft store with personality, flair and whimsy, staffed by people who are obsessed with this stuff.
