Are you getting a sense of the place???
Really quite small, filled with pieces having lived life alongside their owners, now waiting to bring new life to another space.
Focused, carefully curated, each piece an individual treasure.
Always such a joy to visit Miss Vicki – to see beauty through her eyes.
I’ll be back in August for another family event in Crossroads!!!
Delighting in the signature neutral palette so seamlessly woven throughout the shop, as well as the paint brush bouquets….
imagine my surprise when these artist’s palettes were produced from behind the counter!!
Homepieces: always a place to find inspiration!!!
No window into, or expression of the soul matches that of art…
art in the most broad sense…in this case: art of brush, pencil and pen
The process is soothing, purposeful, joyful…
bring sunshine to yourself and others!!!

Although John Nava’s amazing tapestries lie 90 miles to the south in the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in Los Angeles, a full size test for the north wall 5 tapestry, along with small survey of John Nava’s work has been on display at the Santa Paula Art Museum.
The test tapestry from the Communion of Saints Tapestry Cycle measures 192 x 82 inches.
stunning, moving, captivating
Nava, a graduate of the UCSB College of Creative Studies, went on to earn an MFA in Florence, Italy.
Commissioned to do the tapestries, teaching himself to work in a new way, he paints his subject, then sends the image to be loomed in Belgium.
Although the exhibit ended on November 8th, Nava’s tapestry “Lizzie with Knit Cap” has been sent to a permanent home at the Museum of Art, Design & Architecture at UCSB.
Well worth a visit to see this extraordinary art!!!
So grateful to live in a country committed to individual freedom, founded on Judeo-Christian principles…and to all who have served in the military – and their families.
‘Right in my own back yard’…a cliche, yes… but so true!

Marie, at home in Santa Barbara with two small children; her husband John called to duty in World War II,
Marie Gorham began creating ‘Zig Zag’.
At war’s end, Lieutenant Commander Gorham returned to their historic adobe home in Santa Barbara.
A third child was born; together John and Marie finished the concept book as an original work of art.
More than 60 years later their oldest daughter and her husband published ‘Zig Zag’ – dedicated in loving memory to her parents.
A story within a story…a delightful read!
