Good news! Our First Friday ever was a huge success!
Signs by Will Holman, Jewelry by Clever Gretel, and Jewelry and Journals by Up-cycle Specialist IAMTHEMANDY, gave everyone something to talk about.
At our First Friday for February, Grace Aberdean Habitat Alchemy played host to our guests from the Pie Lab and Rual Studios from Greensboro Alabama, along with Friends and family who came in from all over the southeast to celebrate art, fun and furniture. Bryant Saxon came in from Birmingham to spin records for the event and our own Mary Tubbs flip cameraed everyone! The conversation ranged from cocktails to fashion to world peace to food and farming!
It is my great pleasure to showcase all my artists this month. Will has shown foresight and growth by incorporating rustic folk art into sustainable original pieces of art that are entirely functional for the modern home. His pieces are one of a kind that add a conversation to any room. The designs are sturdy and in it’s classic design will remain in style throughout the years.
IAMTHEMANDY shows her finger is on the pulse by creating fashions from whatever she can find. Right now we are sporting her Up-cycled earrings made from tape measures, Cuffs made from buttons and fabric, her journals from old record covers (very popular) and her crocheted necklaces from t-shirts. We only have a limited amount of her goods so get them while they’re hot!
Clever Gretel charms us with her Up-cycled Vintage Button Earrings. So simple it’s ingenious! Using furniture buttons and actual buttons attached to vintage children book pages she tells a story visually. Very clever indeed!
Here are a couple photos from the party!

Thanks to everyone for coming out on Friday! We had a great, great time!!!
Hugs and High Fives!
