I’d like to call my guests today the Queens of Glass! Meet Ms. Sally Pennington Moore, Artist and Owner of Three Dimensional Visions and Ms. Carol Simon, Artist of Carol Simon Studio. You’ll soon see why I want to call them Queens of Glass!!!
I like fun and whimsical….that is exactly what you will find in Diane Gelman’s studio at The Silos at Sawyer Yards in Houston, Texas at 1502 Sawyer Street, Studio 209, Houston, TX 77007 and did I mention mad talent? Yep…that too! 🙂
What’s better on a hot, Houston day than being in cool air conditioning? Seeing great art with the A/C blowing! Here is a little overview of my visit to Sawyer Yards last “Second Saturdays”…. guess it’s art week here at Houston Photo Journey 🙂 ! It was just such a treat for the eyes and imagination that I had to take you with me!!!
Remember folks…you heard it here first 🙂 … Today’s epic adventure took me to the Quirky Country Market. The business was initially named Industrial Country Market but too many people didn’t realize it was opened to the public, due to the word industrial, so they are changing over to Quirky Country Market. This place is ONLY opened on the weekends and is “off the grid”…there are a ton of solar panels to accomplish going off the grid – Love that!!!
I’ve shopped at Ann’s Fine Gifts & Clocks, Inc. for YEARS now!! It’s my “go to shop” for the challenging people in my life that are hard to buy for!
Birthday’s and Christmas time are my favorite times to shop at Ann’s Fine Gifts & Clock Shop as you can ALWAYS find something truly unique!!

I had no idea there was a Farmer’s Market near me until I received an email from Ms. Leah Stapleton of the SPR Agency telling me about it. Why not check it out 🙂 . I try not to shop/buy while getting posts ready, but I confess to leaving with 2 buckets of yummy tomatoes from Atkinson Farms 🙂 – yum!

Allow me to introduce Mrs. Ursula Sledge. Mrs. Sledge is from Hannover, Germany. She fell in love and moved here with her American husband. Her story is interesting as she managed to make her dreams a reality and I love that!! Ursula was once a customer at the German Gift House and fell in love with it. When Mrs. Sledge learned the owners wished to retire and sell the shop she enjoyed visiting so much, she and a friend decided to buy it! That was in 2008. By 2011, Mrs. Sledge became the sole proprietor! What a great story of turning your passions and dreams into reality – living “The American Dream”! (READ FURTHER FOR 10% DISCOUNT)
