Treat yourself and your teenagers to Manchester Girl this weekend in Los Olivos. You won’t “regret a minute spent in her company,“ said LA Times about this Edinburgh Fesitval Fringe Award winner. Says creator and star Sue Turner-Cray: “I decided to volunteer to perform at St. Mark’s in Los Olivos, as did my lighting and sound crew, Carl Mahoney and Oscar-winning film editor Richard Harris, to help our community deal with the challenges of growing up, of making painful choices, and then regaining wholeness after suffering seeming losses,” Turner-Cray said in a statement released by St. Mark’s. “I hope that these shows will inspire communication and empowerment.” St. Mark’s-in-the-Valley is located at 2901 Nojoqui Ave., Los Olivos. Tickets are $25 for adults, and free for youth. More information is available at 688-9533 or smitv.org. #whattodothisweekend #santaynezvalley #losolivos #manchestergirl #sueturnercray #tourdeforce #mustsee And then pop by and see Sue and her fabulous vintage boutique @sueturnercraythestylejunction in Los Olivos.
My “Oscar dinner” table from above. Was just two of us so I didn’t bother to clear table of books and things. Flowers and a few votives made it sparkle. The napkin rings are silk flowers glued to grosgrain ribbon., which I did a hundred years ago. The result looks like more of an effort than it was. #tablescape #tablesetting #dinnerparty #dininglibrary
The happy breakfast room of my Beaufort, SC, cousins and my darlin’ godmother Caroline, whom we visited last week. She was cousin and great friend to my mother, whose 87th birthday would have been today. Happy Birthday, Mama.
