Meal train request for family with new baby

Submitted By: – Click to email about this post
Introducing Marlo Belvedere McLaughlin, Chuck and Barbara’s newest granddaughter. She’s here!

Marlo means “drop of the sea.” Belvedere derives from two Italian words: bel, which means “beautiful,” and vedere, which means “view.” It’s also a gorgeous town in CA and a reminder that her parents met in the Bay Area.

Thanks so much to Brianna Rivers for setting up a July meal train for us: (Venmo option: @ kate-romanov). Thanks to anyone who contributes.

Sending lots of love from the North Oregon Coast!

Art in the Manzanita Library

Submitted By: – Click to email about this post
Manzanita Artist Kim Rosenberg will be displaying her at work at the Manzanita library in July and August.

“I like to make things that leave my mind free to wander and my hands busy”, says Kim.

“When I collage imaginary gardens and animals from wool felt and embroidery floss, I don’t use a pattern. I cut shapes free hand and put them together over time before I start to stitch. I like the feel of the felt and the rich colors available. I like how a few simple stitches can create details and depth.”

“Making a collage with existing images from books and magazines is a much faster process but similar for me. I cut out and place images together in imagined landscapes where babies can fly and people of many different cultures, countries, ethnicities, and time periods all exist at once.”

In this show collages were made from up cycled images taken from 1940 – 1960 National Geographic magazines Kim found at the Manzanita Recycling & Transfer station. The felt pieces were stitched “during the long rainy days of winter.”

Art in the Library is sponsored by North Tillamook Library Friends.
