Christmas 2017 In Troy, New York

Happy Holidays near and far and for those who are no longer with us, the Prock family did a family tradition.  Alternating Christmas with mom’s cousin Deb from her house to our house has been a tradition ever since I can remember.  The last couple of years we’ve spent Christmas with Deb because mom has had a few surgeries and with moving Sow’s Ear Studio back home.  Nice food, conversation, laughter on Christmas.  I love taking pictures of the Christmas trees, Santa Claus, food, and sometimes us.  This lovely Christmas tree was taken in the living room.

Of course no Christmas is complete without some snow.  A beautiful white Christmas.  I personally am sick and tired of snow and would rather be on the beach, but I’m blessed with what I’ve have.  Five inches of snow, and I feel more on the way.  I’m thinking of the fact that this is the first winter without not having to shovel home and the shop.  Further more, I’m looking forward to not having to pay to have the parking lot at the shop plowed.  Just dealing with shoveling at home.  Now that Sow’s Ear Studio is back home for good.  See our new studio come alive at home along with Rosemary’s new Etsy shop.  Sow’s Ear Studio’s Etsy shop won’t be open until after the first of the year.

From the Prock family to yours, MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR.

Bittersweet Day, Moving With The Next Chapter

Today was a bittersweet day for both Rosemary D’Alberto Prock & Lauren Prock of Sow’s Ear Studio. We’ve said our final goodbyes and we’re officially out of 1597 Union Street. With the final move and unpacking at our new studio at home, we’re gonna do a huge mailing after the first of the year. Stay tuned as our new online business comes alive at our home. Rosemary D’Alberto Prock will still be doing painted furniture, accessories, and Lauren Prock will be doing crochet items for the home. It was a sad goodbye today, but we’re looking forward to the next chapter of our business as well as the next chapter of our lives.

Winter Solstice Prayers 2017

As a child, I celebrated Christmas, was raised as a Catholic, and now I’m finding a whole new perspective in spirituality, crystal powers, tarot cards, believing in God and Goddess, and sharing solstice prayers with everyone in Christmas cards and blogging.  This is my winter solstice prayer for 2017.

Favorite Christmas Movie: It’s A Wonderful Life Movie Clip Dance Scene


With the holidays on the way, mom and I love watching the 1946 classic, It’s A Wonderful Life. One of the best Christmas movies that teaches all of us that we have a good life no matter what happens. This is my favorite part of the movie when George meets Mary at the dance. For a good laugh, click on the video.
