Hot Stripes At MaJe Gallery

Hot Stripes Are Fun and Bold

Hot stripes are featured in this Megan Wrap from Florida's Inside Out Everyday.
Hot stripes in multi-colored splendor

Sizes



The Megan Wrap from Florida’s Inside Out Everyday is now available in this colorful striped fabric. Yes, it’s great in summer, but it might also be just the thing for the dreariness of February. Circular hem is shorter in front and longer in back, reducing the appearance of hips. Manya’s modeling it in these photos above showing the variety you can get when pairing it with different colored tops and black leggings.

Instead of leggings, how about a blue skirt?

Pair it with a long, blue skirt and white top for a refreshing look that will be perfect for your next outing. All three items now available at MaJe Gallery.

Introducing Our Newest Jeweler

When Christine Busch Lyons was still in college she found some old circus animal stamps in her grandparents’ basement one summer afternoon. As an art major with a specialty in metal work she found the stamps inspiring and used them in her work. These charming shapes can now be found at MaJe Gallery in Edmonds.

Light-weight and shiny silver, these are sure to attract admiring comments from complete strangers.

According to Christine, “I had the idea for the PussShe Cat design early one morning when I was half asleep. I got up and did a drawing and told my husband Glenn “we’ve got to make this!” I was so inspired by the Women’s March and the whole “Pussy Hat” phenomena. Also I love the design and quite frankly thought it might sell. Because of what we believe in, a portion of our sales of PussShe Cat jewelry will be going to Planned Parenthood and the ACLU.

Pendants also available.

A new box of the awesome basic T-shirts from Halo is arriving any day now, so stay tuned! Find out first by following us on Facebook!

Sky Blue Summer Jackets and Pants

Sky blue is an excellent color to include in your summer wardrobe. It’s fresh and clean, and looks great with at least half your closet.

The Reba jacket quickly rose to become Testimony’s most popular jacket. Why? Because it’s gorgeous, that’s why! And now, for a limited time, it’s available in this lovely shade of blue called “sky.”

By the way, I also have several pairs of Testimony’s narrow leg “Betty” pant in sky as well…. Don’t wait long if you want some!

Introducing New Artist Kathy Walker

It might not be sky blue, but this purple art box by Kathy Walker is just gorgeous
Art inside AND out!



Edmonds watercolor artist Kathy Walker launches a new line of art boxes using her exquisite watercolor paintings. Available only at MaJe Gallery, these meticulously finished boxes feature Kathy’s art both inside and out, as you can see in this box with a drawer and mirror. Each box is signed by Kathy, making it a collectible piece.

The above box in purple and gold measures, when closed, 5 3/4″ long x 4″ wide and 3″ tall.

It's not sky blue, but these are the best cards around.

Not All White Tops Are The Same

Simple. Elegant. Fun.

Sizes



Three cut-outs at the neck transform a simple, half-sleeve white T-shirt into an elegant yet fun summer top.

Not all white tops are the same, like this super fun tequila top from Inside Out Everyday.
White tunic with cami included

Sizes



A sheer, textured white tunic over a simple cami makes an elegant statement with a dash of sass. Better yet, it’s aptly called the Tequila Tunic! Pair it with jeans for casual, a skirt for a party, or something in between for a day out with your girlfriends. Machine washable and great for travel, this summer top will get a lot of wear and enjoyment. Just $84 and nearly all sold out. Only size large remaining.

Check out these two subtle and beautiful new pieces composed by our own Shari Both. On the left, sparkly stones wrap around a silver oval frame, topped by a sapphire. An unusual chain mixes with more of the sparkly stones for a cohesive design.

On the right, wrapped labradorite chunks and hand-wrought silver squares and other stones form a lovely whole in oxidized sterling. Beautiful.

Shari is inspired by vintage jewelry and I think we can all see that influence in this lovely new design.

Art For Home, Kitchen, Body – Made in the Northwest

This week, new art for home, kitchen, body has arrived – and it’s made right here in our own backyard! No, you won’t find these items in a mall. Ever. Northwest artists making lovely things for our Northwest lovers.

Art For Home

Art for home, kitchen, body like this panoramic autumnal view of a Northwest scene

Now retired, former Mukilteo schools art teacher Rolf Oversvee heads out to a great view, gets out his painting gear, and paints the scene. This is a larger painting, measuring 24″ x 48″ – often the perfect size for above a fireplace or sofa. His use of warm and cool tones together create cheerful yet peaceful works that celebrate the natural beauty of our surroundings. $998.

Art For Kitchen

The "Garden Goddess" tea towl by new artist Debbie Tomassi
The “Garden Goddess” tea towl by new artist Debbie Tomassi

We are thrilled to welcome a new artist to MaJe Gallery this week – Debbie Tomassi (from Seattle) brings her linen tea towels to Edmonds. And these aren’t just any tea towels either.  Starting with an original painting, Debbie prints that image onto linen using ink with intense saturation to capture all her glorious colors. Precision is key, so lining up the image properly is just one step in the process. Once printed, Debbie then hand-finishes the edges and seals it all in to create a luxurious, vibrant linen tea towel that will withstand many washings and bring you joy for years to come.

We have five designs in Debbie’s delightful tea towels for you to enjoy. Art for home, kitchen, body likes to offer options!

Puss-and-Birdy-Tea-Towels
Two linen tea towels. “Puss” on the left, “Hello Birdy” on the right

Here’s a pair of tea towels, sold separately, featuring more of Debbie Tomassi’s vibrant art. Who knew a kitchen tea towel could be so beautiful?

Another pair of Debbie’s cheerful tea towels. This time on the left we have a bluebird belting out a lovely song, while on the right we have a whole crazy flower festival! 100% linen towels are dyed with high saturation, and each towel is meticulously hand-finished. Great quality and just $28 each.

Just $48. (Update: This pair now sold)

Our outfit of the week features the Megan Wrap

In rich tones of magenta, teal, and olive with accents of charcoal and black, you can throw this on over whatever black basics you have in the closet and turn the day into a sunny one. Made of rayon, it’s machine washable too.
