New Navigation

On the drive home from the beach yesterday, I was listening to a podcast and had a revelation. For years, I’ve struggled with how to categorize my business. I say struggle because categories have evolved (and no doubt will continue to evolve) over time. There are vintage paper and vintage smalls, journals, drawing, coloring products and other artistic creations. But it occurred to me that all these things fall into two categories: Vintage Finds and Artistic Pursuits. So, moving forward, when you enter the Shop portal, you’ll find these two categories. Looking for vintage? Click on Vintage Finds. It will lead you to All Vintage Finds (to see the entire vintage collection) Paper (to see just the vintage paper) and Not Paper (to see all the other vintage items that aren’t paper like keys, metal letters and other smalls plus home decor) Feeling artistic and want to create or purchase completed artwork? Click on Artistic Pursuits. It will lead you to All Artistic Pursuits (to see all the artistic offerings), Coloring (to see the coloring products), Journaling (to see products for art journaling) and Handmade (to see items made by me).

I feel this is a good direction, but welcome your feedback once you’ve navigated through it. I’m always open to positive suggestions! #VINTAGEFINDS #ARTISTICPURSUITS

Jubilee Flea has a little brick + mortar home!

Starting Wednesday, May 10, Jubilee Flea will be taking over an upstairs room at Belle Jar Design in historic Clifton, Virginia!

This space allows me to offer the large vintage pieces I find for home and holiday plus old paper, fun things to color + my little artistic creations. You’ll find it all in this one little space that promises to bring #CelebratingTheCreativeJourney to life!

Belle Jar Design is located in a little old yellow house (dubbed “The Pink House” because years ago an owner painted it pink and the name just stuck) and offers unique vintage furniture pieces and accessories. Co-owners, Heather Taylor and Laura Jane Cohen have long shared a passion for seeking out and refurbishing furniture and vintage items.

You’ll find us all at

Belle Jar Design

An interview about coloring + creativity

IMG_6472
Last year while on my beach vacation, I created most of the drawings for my coloring journal that was released last fall. Fast forward to today … I was just interviewed by the local paper, The Island Packet, about my book and creativity! One of my best cheerleader/friends set it up. Link to the video and print article coming later today or tomorrow. Link to purchase the coloring journal here. To celebrate, I’m taking $5 off each copy through July 4th!  Talk about things coming full circle … #CelebratingTheCreativeJourney in my southern makeshift studio-by-the-sea

Spent 3-1/2 days at a music festival. I’d never done anything like that before. Ever. Spent time in shady spots drawing, listening, eating and even a little shopping. Saw bands I had never heard of before. Even danced a little. Did *lots* of people watching. It was like Halloween and Mardi Gras all rolled into one. When I was sitting on my fabulous beach blanket with art supplies all around me, several people asked to see what I was doing. Two people even asked if they could draw in my book. Of course I said yes.
