The Glen Wild (an upstate NY Bungalow Colony) is looking to hire an Inn Keeper / Care Taker.

I’m obsessed with these crocheted Daniela Gregis bags. I want to learn how to make one. Can you teach me?

I will always love the minimalist pairing of Black and Tan.

This 336 SF cabin on 10 acres in Vinalhaven, Maine might be just what you need.

Garnet Hill in Exeter, NH needs a Design Assistant.

I’m on the hunt for the perfect secondhand button front jean skirt for Spring.

This made me smile. Which reminds me — Do you follow Beige Cardigan?

You know the 9th Annual Clothing Swap is on Saturday, May 12th, right? This year it will be the Connie Bean Center inside the Portsmouth Middle School.

This is going to be my song for the summer. I listened to it yesterday on my speed walk and I couldn’t hide my joy.

Genius! Buy a cream rug and paint it!

Anna Hepler

I wish I’d seen this Anna Hepler show at the Portland Museum of Art back in 2010.

Love her work, her style, her process. So inspiring.
Especially love the Double Hung wire sculpture from this 2017 exhibition. Cheeky.

It makes me think of Ruth Asawa’s work. There is a new book out soon about Ruth Asawa. We have it on order at the Portsmouth Public Library. You can place a hold on it here.

I was reminded of Anna Hepler’s work via a post on Remodelista about The Soot House on Spruce Head Island in Maine. Follow the links to a post about the 1754 Cape to see Hepler’s work in the wild.

Bring Men’s and Women’s Clothing. Don’t forget footwear and accessories. All seasons welcome. Bring winter coats and summer dresses.

This year, the SWAP will be held across the parking lot in the gym at the Connie Bean Center!

Participants are asked to bring a bag of gently used, clean clothing, shoes, and accessories, and leave with a bag of “new-to-you” items. In the spirit of giving, participants are asked to give more than they get. Remaining clothing and accessories will be donated to Goodwill.

This is a clothing drive. Please give more than you take.

 

 

The swap is a fun, social event helping people see fashion as an opportunity to give back to society. Donating unwanted clothing saves it from landfills, and a donation becomes an exciting addition to another’s wardrobe.

SWAPPERS
Bring a friend and a cloth bag to the swap.

The swap benefits Goodwill Industries of Northern New England, whose retail stores help to keep usable goods out of the landfill. Last year, more than 300 people participated in the swap, donating over 1,800 pounds of clothing. The sales of all un-swapped donations help fund Goodwill programs in the Seacoast area and throughout New Hampshire.

Goodwill Industries of Northern New England enables individuals with diverse challenges to achieve personal stability and community engagement. A social enterprise for over 100 years, Goodwill reflects the integration of economic, social and environmental sustainability, with a focus on connecting people to marketplace employment. Services are funded by revenue from retail and recycling operations, grants, fees, and philanthropic investments and gifts.
