Texture tenure

Bob Gillis’ maturity is showing in his mini-retrospective, “Work After 70 Years,” at Art House Designs in Olympia.

One small step for Vicci Martinez

Pelusa, Chuck Pyle and others

Friday, May 11 Skeletons and the Kings of All Cities I think I’m pretty darn clued-in about music, as I listen to almost everything and have soaked in data about pert near every genre there is over the years. However, while I pride myself on having a vast Rolodex of musical knowledge

Trouve and Urban Gourmet and Garden

Mommapalooza Yeah.  Mother’s Day is imminent.  Embarrassingly, I must admit I have made no purchases for either of the mothers on my list — neither his, nor mine — and time is running out.  Enter the Francophile-ic lovey-ness of Trouve, which, yes, will be closing, but not until July.  A recent

Sling back flats

The greatest benefit of this summer is the new sling back flats. They’re adorable shoes that go with anything: a pair of shorts, Capris, skirts, and my favorite skinny jeans. At school I have seen them in different styles and colors. The sling back flats have an elegant look. You can
