Red Glitter Wish Dog stars in our Wish Dog Christmas Special.
We had a wonderful visit from the ladies at Papery & Cakery, a lifestyle and design blog based in Boca Raton that features DIY projects, culinary treats, and everything entertaining. The blog is written by sisters Niki Kantor Rubin and Ali Kantor Shapiro, and I just LOVE their aesthetic and approach to design and edibles! I'm thrilled to see the feeling is mutual, as they featured my "Notebook Goldfish" in their "Sisterly Six" collection of favorite things. I'm right next to Cafe du Monde beignets!! That's saying a lot.
I'm so glad the girls had fun on their visit, and that they got a souvenir from Gallery B to remember it by!! With love to Papery & Cakery and Boca Raton xoxo :)
It was a quiet Tuesday and everyone gathered for a nice, relaxing brunch. Then the Saints and a whole bunch of New Orleans notables showed up and started waiting tables, competing for "tips" (Bridge Bucks), and raising funds for the Bridge House Grace House. The entire event, including live and silent auction, was made possible by Bridge House Grace House and Saints player Will Smith's foundation — When There's a Will There's a Way. Tons of funds were raised to support individuals working to overcome substance abuse and addiction. It was an incredible event, and I was honored to be one of the "Celebrity Waiters". How fun is that?!?!?!?
We all got sweet aprons. Included here with the Saints guys are legendary singer Charmaine Neville and fellow artist and supertalent Terrance Osborne!
FOX 8 was there and did a great segment on the event:
And if you're curious about who was there and the idea of Celebrity Waiters works, the Morning Show did a great rundown!
If you've been keeping up with the Gallery you know our Wish Dogs are really taking off!! We're having a great time sharing them, promoting them, and hearing rave reviews from people who've discovered them at Fleurty Girl shops, picked up a handful at the Gallery, or even got them as gifts from friends. And you can get them online and even get tee shirts and postcards!
We recruited our favorite New Orleans actor, Laura Flannery, to model the new tees. Stunning!!! (Cocoa and Director of Photography Ian Campbell even joined in the fun.)
Thanks to Laura for her talent, Ian for his skills, and Cocoa, for being as cute, fluffy, and orange as ever. <3 xoxoxo
