Sidewalk Chalk Artist Reception

img_36664101img_36664114_thumbBirch St. House & Garden is excited to announce the arrival of a new photographer in April. Roslindale resident Jana McCarthy will debut her collection “Sidewalk Chalk: Images of Our Cities” at an opening reception on Saturday, April 12 from 5-9PM. Please join us for an evening of art, music and mingling.

Looking for that one-of-a-kind print that captures our City’s forgotten public art? Jana offers a permanent refuge for graffiti, murals, and sticker art in her self-curated photograph collection.

All images are for sale at Birch St. House & Garden from April 12 through May 30. A portion of sales from the April 12 free, public reception go to The City of Boston Scholarship Fund.

 

3/27 GNO is FULL!

I’m so excited! My first Girls Night Out: Craft Session tomorrow evening is standing room only. My rough count is that we are going to host 11 ladies on Thursday, March 27 from 7-9PM. We will be hand embroidering a towel.

WAIT LIST for APRIL — If you missed the boat, I’m taking names for an April GNO: Craft Session. You can email me at info@birchsthouseandgarden.com or send me a private message on facebook at www.facebook.com/birchsthouseandgarden.

Shop ‘Til You Drop (for a good cause of course!)

1798857_10101429628609619_594210137_nHave you been searching hi and lo for an excuse to do a little retail therapy? Look no further!

Shop ’til you drop on Friday, March 21st between 5-9PM and 10% of your purchases will be donated to the Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts. We’re helping former RVMS Executive Director Stephanie Cave, who is running the Boston Marathon for the first time next month. She’s raising $5K for the Girl Scouts.

To keep your stamina up, we’ll have sustenance in the form of Girl Scout cookies and milk. If milk doesn’t cut it for you, imbibe in a little punch with a kick.
