May 20, 2016- Songbird Artistry Grand Opening

 "A place where creativity is nurtured and developed.
A place where merchandise handmade locally is sold. "

                   Storefront "Songbird Artistry" excitedly opened their doors Friday evening on Penn Avenue in Lawrenceville.   Debbie, accompanied by her daughters Jennifer and Jacklyn, welcomed countless friends and family to kick off the grand opening weekend.   It's always so wonderful to see the same friendly faces showing their support and love time after time.    

                The space was nothing short of magical.   The front window invites the passerby with it's delicate and lovely charm.   Once inside, you're surrounded by this positive energy overflowing with hopes, dreams, and memories.  Larry, Debbie's husband recently passed after a long battle with A.L. S.   He was such a kind and giving soul, and loved these girls unconditionally.  Everywhere I looked, I could see little hints of Larry.  From mosaics that he and his family worked on together, to the soft sweet glow of warmth and love put forth in every slight detail. 






                             This last photograph was taken almost exactly two years ago at Jenn's Jems ALS Fundraiser Market After Dark, and remains my favorite picture of them to date.  If you have a minute to spare select the song link above; sit back and just relax.  Take that deservedly five and think of someone who has made you smile from ear to ear, and who will always be with you wherever you go.

         If you find yourself in the city, searching for that unique
            and locally handmade gift, or are looking to learn something new, stop in and say hello to these amazing three women, and the man they love so much.
