Peacock Promenade Saturday in Coconut Grove

Peacock Reflections
archival print by Debra Cortese  is now on display at GroveHouse Artists.

I mentioned in previous post (see below) that the Peacock Casual Tote and matching Clutch Purse would be ready for the launch party this Saturday.  I really lucked out because this is my designated week for the window easel and of course just had to frame a Peacock Reflection design 😉
Here’s the rundown on the Peacock Launch Party: (I ran into Heather Bettner just as I finished placing the art and bags in the gallery and she was delivering the cards for the event. Perfect timing!)
