Family lured Jerrianne and her husband to South Milwaukee in 2002 from Southern California where she worked as, first, a journalist, then, as a court information officer. She now stays busy with media-relations consulting, playing with her three grandchildren (part of the lure), writing, discovering her new environs, and hoping her garden will produce before the first fall frost.
South Milwaukee Alderman Erik Brooks is starting a 12-days of South Milwaukee series on his southmilwaukeeblog.com. The first is Studio One Art Glass. Here's the link to his post:
If you've never been in this stained-glass wonderland at 1333 Milwaukee Avenue, you should give yourself a treat. Gorgeous eye-dazzlers abound. And the prices are reasonable.
We've bought Studio One art off the shelf and had custom-crafted creations made. They did a fabulous job of duplicating three pieces we bought at an art show in California more than 10 years ago.
Shopping for Christmas and other gifts and for home decor is a great way for folks all over southeast Wisconsin to buy local.
