News from the Salvage Studio

Hope you are all enjoying our long-awaited summer!

We have some big news for you – we are retiring Salvage Studio. We have both decided to focus on new directions, are still good friends, and don’t want to lose track of you. We had the time of our lives doing Salvage Studio together, and are so grateful for all the friendships we made with our customers. We hope to stay in contact with each of you through our new endeavors.

Lisa’s new blog,, will keep you up to date on all her activities and plans.

Beth’s new blog,, will function as her website/blog combo. A sidebar calendar will have the venues she’ll be appearing at for speaking engagements and teaching workshops.

Both blogs will soon have a section to sign up for our new email newsletters. You’ll also learn more about our new businesses.

We’ve also decided to cancel our Art Party that was scheduled for October 2. If you signed up and paid, you will be receiving your refund soon.

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for all your heartfelt support!
Beth and Lisa

Carla's Cat

One of my 2010 goals (yes, I have them and yes, I am still working on them!) was to take some workshops. For the past four years, we have been teaching up a it is my turn to fill myself up. Plus, being a student makes a better teacher.

Carla Sonheim is an Art Girl (a once a month meeting of some of the kindest people and most creative minds we know) and she recently moved back to the Seattle area. She is also one of the most delightful artists. I have been wearing her little cat charm on my Fork Pendant Necklace for years.

You may remember it. I love it!

She is teaching an online class...I signed up the minute I read about it. You can find the information on her website here. Care to join me? -- Lisa

Birds and Blooms Magazine

Our book is featured in the April/May issue of Birds and Blooms Magazine. We haven't seen it yet but Stacy Torino, the editor of the magazine, says it looks "phenomenal". For a sneak peak, you can see one of the projects here.

My Favorite Spa

I returned just recently from a week-long visit with my mom in Dayton, Washington. We call her place our favorite spa. We sleep good, eat great and relax.
Mom is famous in our family for her homemade bread. She has been making brioche dough lately and 3 out of my 7 mornings I awoke to fresh, hot beignets. Oh. My. Goodness.
We tried to get artsy with our shot. I juiced some organic blood oranges and we had that with champagne with our light as air pastries. -- Lisa

A flower for you!

A 'friend' (she is shy) sent us these photos of flowers made from cut-up, painted plastic bottles from the downtown Anthropologie. She knew we would enjoy them and we hope you do too.

Wouldn't it be a blast to spend a day with the creative team that puts these ideas together. Hint, hint! -- Lisa

ps...even though she is shy, she asked permission to take photos...always good ettiquette.
