It’s Stash not Trash – April 8, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. when Rhonda Langston will show you how she creates “A Message in a Bottle” as she converts a simple old bottle into a work of art. Rhonda is a celebrated local artist with decades of design expertise.

Mixed media artists thrive on a wide range of knowledge, skill, imagination, design, attention to details and lots of stash.  . . buttons, laces, ribbons, yarns, old jewelry, vintage post cards, silk flowers, tassels, pieces of fabrics, threads, shells, any size old bottle.  Just about anything you might find at an estate sale, garage sale, or in your mother’s sewing room is sought by mixed media hoarders.

Rhonda is a master stash collector. Her skill at converting her riches into artistic compositions is proven.  Rhonda’s silk purses and decorative bottles are beautiful additions to any ensemble, home or special occasion. Mark your calendar so you don’t miss this April Artist’s Demonstration.

The Gifted Gator Boutique is open Monday thru Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
