You heard it here first. Jayson Werth’s new name is “Mick.” I can’t help it; it’s the artist in me. I see Mick Jagger every time I see Jayson. I may be biased because I love the Stones, but Jayson's nickname has been sticking. Whenever Jayson’s up to bat, my boyfriend yells, “Mick’s up.” Go Phillies!

New Goodies at Homespun

Here's a small sample of new paintings I just dropped off at Homespun in Jim Thorpe. Julius, of course, was not part of the trio of folk art paintings. For more information, visit

The sunflowers were painted with watercolors and were framed behind an old window from my friend Georgie's house. The next two paintings are framed with attic windows I salvaged from my brother’s house in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. I always look for ways to recycle and thought these rustic frames would go well with my original, folk artwork. Thanks for the frames, Mike and Shannon!
