Happy Birthday Rosemary

Happy Birthday Rosemary and many more to come.

Rosemary and Lauren hope that our fans, readers, family, and friends had a safe and happy new year.  We’re keeping warm during this bitter cold winter and coming up with new ideas for work as well as our new business studio. Stay warm and be happy this winter.

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.

Hello And Happy Holidays 2017


Dear Friends:
Sorry Sow’s Ear Studio and I haven’t posted in a while, but we’re almost at the end of moving 1597 Union Street to 867 Warner Road. It’s been a long hall with the move and 20+ years of wonderful memories at a wonderful location. Now it’s time to make new memories with our online business back home. For the month of November, the Prock family had two wonderful Thanksgivings. First Thanksgiving was celebrated with the D’alberto family at Galway Lake, New York. Uncle Larry cooked the most wonderful meal and I brought mashed sweet potatoes and mashed cauliflower with spinach. The original Thanksgiving day was celebrated back home in Niskayuna and Mazzone Hospitality prepared our meal. A perfect meal for 10 people, we had lots of leftovers and enough for a few days. After Thanksgiving, it was time to get back to packing and cleaning up what we…

New Friend On The Front Porch, At The Shop


After stopping at Gershon’s Deli this morning to get a breakfast wrap, I was walking up the front porch of the shop a baby bird flew through the window and landed in the porch box.  The bird seemed a little stunned, but managed to stand up and stood up.  I looked to make sure it was okay and the bird didn’t seem to be afraid of me.  I was lucky I had my phone on my and I took some pictures of the bird in the porch box.

I was more curious, so the stroked the bird on the top of the head.  The bird seemed comfortable, so I stroked the bird on it’s head, back, and picked up the bird.  Placed the bird on my finger, and the bird felt comfortable enough to stay.  I grabbed more pictures of this lovely, wild, creature and decided to blog about it.  Now the…

Dear Facebook friends and fans,
Life is full of passages, and today we are announcing one of our own. After almost twenty years on Upper Union Street, Sow’ s Ear Studio is relocating the business to our home office.  It’s been a wonderful run, but this move is best for us.  
We will close officially at the end of July. In the meantime, we are having a moving sale, lots of great deals to be had. We will be here for Strawberry Fest on June 17th and during our regular shop hours as we prepare for the move. 
I will still be accepting orders for re -painting your furniture, and will continue to do so even as we transition to our new digs.
We hope you’ll stop by while we are still here to chat and check out our moving sale.
Thanks to all our supporters. Hope to see you soon!
