Vintage2Glam is my idea of reusing vintage goodies, and turning them into something Glam. I love taking vintage finds, and make them modern with wonderful colors and a vintage twist..... love to incorporate them into my own vintage inspired art an accessories. Pleased to say that my jewelry was worn my Ellen Burstyn in the movie "GRETA" starring Ellen and Hillary Duff filmed in historical town of Ocean Grove N.J.

Summer Teaching in the Gardens

I am so happy to be teaching again in the gardens of Centennial Cottage  in Historic Ocean Grove New Jersey.

 I was asked by a dear teacher friend of mind Mary, who works at the cottage, if I would be interested in teaching in the gardens and coming up with a few classes......

I thought why not...give it  a try...Well that was 5 years ago  and each year the cottage hosts a variety of interesting classes, taught by local artists.

the classes are held in the gardens weather permitting.....and moved into the museum if the weather is bad....which has never happened in all the years I have taught my classes.....fingered crossed for another great year......

 students are offered lemonade, ice tea or water and a cookie or two, and if you need to bring your lunch you may..   Many go for lunch after the class, we can supply a list of places all with in walking distance.....

it is such a nice relaxing day.... there is no pressure if you are a are there to learn a new craft and enjoy the day......

classes start at 10:30 am and run till 1:00pm.  We have women from all over and children as well attend.  They bring their friends and make a day of it......

PAPER BEADS Monday July 8th students will learn the art of paper bead making, then use these beads in interesting ways to create jewelry.

We will be crafting in the beautiful gardens weather permitting, however bad weather we will work in the museum.  You can plan on a day of crafting in Ocean Grove, then you may hit the beaches, have  lunch in one of the many great eateries, then grab an ice cream in one of the 2 quaint ice cream shops in town, do a little shopping….everything is within walking distance…  I promise you will be hooked on crafts and this adorable town….
