The Queen

Say hello to the new addition at our house! The painting was done by our friend Stephanie. I just love the expression on her, the queen’s, face. I had a hard time deciding between this one and the Alice in Wonderland painting, which is done in a similar style.

Of course, now I need a collection of these. We’ll see if Stephanie can tempt with paintings of other queens. Especially since we’ve discovered a shared love of Lady Jane Grey, the “9 days queen.”

I’m not sure I could resist a painting of her in this style.

You can check out Stephanie’s work on her blog and buy many originals and prints at her Etsy shop. Buy now before she wises up and starts charging what she should for those originals!

This spoon was inspired by one of the greats of woodworking, Wharton Eshrick. Apparently, according to Art, whenever Mr. Eshrick was invited to dinner he’d bring a handmade spoon instead of a bottle of wine, flowers or a dish. He’d never sell the spoons, just give them as gifts. This fabulous mahogany spoon is Art’s first “gift spoon,” and was made for an upcoming invite.

So, if you’d like to get your hands on one of these A. Drauglis originals — you’ll have to invite us over for dinner!
