New Jersey artist Joanne Miller Rafferty’s work has been seen in museums, thousands of public collections, in film and television. Her work is ethereal, full of light and depth. She layers textures of exotic papers, acrylics, polymers, metallic powders – things that re...

When my local friend Shirley first walked into our newly completed kitchen she hushed, “Shhh, I’m taking it all in.” After 4 months of renovations and hours upon hours of sourcing, our kitchen is operational. It’s creamy and shiny and dreamy. It’s full of drama and sub...

When I was growing up my brothers and I had the enormous privilege of travel, which my parents adored. They took us on some wonderful vacations including Northern Europe, Spain and Morocco. Often we’d be touring an ancient abbey or a historic site and sometimes (let’s...

Moving to a new state requires obtaining a new drivers license along with re-registering your car. Generally, a necessary nuisance. When I looked into where to find the Department of Motor Vehicles in Savannah my GPS took me to a building with the letters TAG (in capit...
