Grease and Grace go to the Emmy’s!

When we formed Grease and Grace four years ago, I don’t think we would have ever imagined our art on the red carpet.

Happy purses wind up in happy homes!

Every time I ship a purse (or any of our art) to its new ‘forever home’, I think about its destination, and what it will be like.  I  consider where it’s lived before, and who with (all of our handbags are vintage!)

At the time, when I shipped this pretty blue and black metallic baby to her new home three thousand miles away  in California, I couldn’t really comprehend how cool a life it was about to receive.

As the pictures rolled in from The Emmys 2016, I had tears in my eyes! What an honor, a real joy, to have a piece of our art on that magical red carpet of dreams. Beautiful and sweet Melissa of the Television Academy is the new owner of this pin-striped vintage handbag. It found its perfect home, and perfect owner!

Bringing the “Old Hollywood Style” back to Hollywood.

Just look at that! Bringing the “Old Hollywood Style” back to Hollywood.  Perfectly matched to her gown, it’s as if they were made to go together.

Thank you for sending us these fabulous and glamorous photos! We love it, and we are elated.

“Paper Moon” – Art Deco Style Print

I know there is somewhat of a resurgence of all things Deco era right now. I’m guessing the Gatsby film has a lot to do with it.  This is great for me, as I’ve long PMCloseup_1been a fan of silent film and early Hollywood. Shiny chrome, multiple mirrors, outrageous and sexy costumes, elaborate geometric patterns and those lovely silvery-black photographs.

More to illustrations to come, but as I delve in to the world before talkies, I’ll share this gal I created (who really could have come from the era slightly after – let’s say pre-code Hollywood era.)

 

 

“Paper Moon” is available for sale at our Etsy shop in the ART PRINTS section.
