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.

I have been teaching classes in the gorgeous gardens of Centennial Cottage for many years now and was the 1st to introduce art classes to the Historical Society.  This year I am excited to be teaching 8 classes. I love to share with you my love of the arts by teaching fun and creative classes, and hope that you could find a class or two to spark your interest and to possibly try a new craft.  It really is an enjoyable day learning a new hobby or craft and connecting with people from all over the tri state area and beyond. Many people come back year after year, and make a day of it.  After class you can get lunch in one of the many restaurants in town or a short walk to Asbury Park.  Ocean Grove has 2 great ice cream parlors, and of course the gorgeous beaches, so grab some friends and come get creative in the gardens.  I promise you that you will enjoy your day!!!
