ROAM Treasure Trove

ROAM treasure trove

I’ve been thinking a lot lately (for a couple of years) about starting a pop-up boutique to sell vintage clothing, housewares, accessories and jewelry. I was excited about the idea and had so many thoughts rushing through my head about it. But one thing was holding me back. I didn’t want to do it alone. I pushed fear aside and decided to go for it- all by myself! It would be called “Rosa’s Picks”. In that same week, through having made that decision, I started telling people about my plan. Low and behold, a partner surfaced!! A fellow jewelry artist, and friend of mine, Sherri O’Neil, had been struggling with the same dilemma of not wanting to go it alone. So we’ve teamed up to create ROAM Treasure Trove. Our first pop-up stop is a fabulous little boutique. It is called Urban Gypsies, and it’s in Sedona, Arizona. We will be opening our doors- or should I say curtains?- on Saturday, June 20th. If you are in the area, stop by and see what treasures we have to offer!

Three Picks Today!

Sorry I’ve been a little out of touch! I’ve been in Northern Arizona and not near a computer for a few days… So, to make it up to you I thought I’d pick Three today!


I’m loving the looseness of this painting! The soft, but vibrant colors and light pen strokes… Who would have guessed that these were tulips?!

FOR WENDY by Oriana Kacicek

Pure, beautiful white slippers with twirling ribbons… But my favorite part is the ‘used’ inside of the shoe! I can just imagine the lovely movements that were made in these shoes!!

SATURNIIDAE by Duane Keiser

I have always loved those boxes with various beetles and bugs stuck on pins with little labels. This painting captures the amazement of the naturalist’s box with such a lovely palette! I particularly love the pale green blue moth on the top!

I just had lunch with my cousin. He is married to one of the most feminine, lovely women I know! I guess I felt inspired by her über-femininity! 


Which one is your favorite??
