Big News: Farmer’s Market First!

It’s no secret or surprise or even anything new that I am somewhere around a farmers market, right?  Whether it was my days slinging veggies for Johnson’s Backyard Garden, doing my own shopping, or playing music, I’m no stranger to the markets around Austin.  The one thing I haven’t done:I have not attended a farmers market as a vendor for my own business. That is until now!!

Sunday, December 11th
11:11 AM- 3 PM
HOPE Farmer’s Market
Austin, TX

This is very exciting, a little nerve wracking, and a big step for my business and myself.  Thank you to all of you that have supported me along the way.

Whatchya got in those jars?

img_4754It’s that time of year…. the weather is finally cooling down.  The holidays are coming.  It’s time to stock up on gifts and my favorite, just eat.  To help you with both, I’ve got a selection of canned goods for this holiday season.

Brandied Apple Butter

Cranberry Orange Sauce

Cranberry Jalapeno Sauce

Pear Ginger Syrup

I’ve got them in 8 ounce and 4 ounce jars.  Perfect for eating out of the jar, spreading on turkey, mixed in a cocktail, spread on pound cake, the possibilities are endless.  I’ll have them available at the East Austin Studio Tours tomorrow and Sunday.  Whatever is still available on Monday, I will be glad to ship out!


The Ombre Affect

I have admittedly never played with this trend known as the “Ombre Affect” before.  Not with my hair, nails, eyeshadow, etc. I thought, maybe with furniture it would be a little safer or at least, less likely to have an effect on my overall appearence that might scare my friends and family.  That’s not to say that I wouldn’t rock it, but as bold as this piece is, I think my hair is just fine.

I played with a light green and bold turquoise latex paint, topped with a durable polyurethane finish.  I love it.  I wish I had a spot in my apartment for this bad boy (or girl).

Baby Step…. Stools

I always like to have a couple of furniture pieces going at a time. Sometimes it’s a nice to have a couple small pieces between larger pieces for a little bit of that instant satisfaction feeling.  Stools always seem to be a great candidate for this.  What better than baby stools?!

I got these pieces raw, no refinishing required.  I wanted to go for something playful.  I went for a much more textured baby blue and a walnut stained purple.  They make me wish I had little ones of my own to utilize them!

If you’re interested, these are for sale.  Contact me at lauraleeimhoff (at) gmail (dot) com

UPDATE: Wednesday, November 16 at 8:30PM Central, BOTH stools have been SOLD.


Studio Tour Galore!


Last weekend was the start of the East Austin Studio Tour.  Unfortunately, I was cuddled up with a box of tissues, tea, antibiotics, and an inhaler fighting off a case of bronchitis and walking pneumonia.  Not ideal for showcasing my work, but I’m slowly on the mend and definitely looking forward to sharing all sorts of goodies this coming weekend.  The weather is supposed to be gorgeous!  I will be there with my dear friend, Kat O’Day, and Nicole Parker.  I hope to see some of you out there!
