Announcing the PigtownDesign Pop-Up Shop!

For months, I’ve been watching a space at a shopping village close to my house play host to a revolving cast of pop-up shops. Last week, I signed a month-long lease for all of September for the second third Pigtown Design Pop-Up Shop!postcard smaller

After my recent trip to the UK where I visited the Wedgwood Museum, and realized how many pieces I of Wedgwood I have at home, imageand with my recent acquisition of a number of stellar Amish and Pennsylvania quilts, imageI decided that the theme of the shop should be Anglo-American! Amazingly enough, that’s my heritage – my father was British and my mother is American. I have dual citizenship throught the UK’s Right of Abode.Anglo American Flag

I will be selling a wide range of decorative items, including china and books (including some give-away Book Thing books!), image

We took a quick trip up to historic Odessa, Delaware, a completely charming village.image

It’s always fun to spot your childhood home on someone else’s Instagram feed!image

I was invited to a beautiful dinner at the Walters Art Museum. image

There’s nothing quite as refreshing as a gin & tonic on a steamy afternoon.image

Our hearts were completely broken by the newsroom murders in Annapolis. image
