Margaret Furlong Blog | Everyday Life & Porcelain Design Inspiration



Janet Yaugo and I go back a long ways. Janet and I went to Mount St Scholastica in Atchison, KS our freshman year of college and we have been the dearest friends ever since. Janet is now my Virginia sales rep and talked me into coming to Virginia to do several signing this November. These signings were very busy and it was lovely to meet and sign for my faithful collectors; some of which had every piece I have ever made and many who had entire Christmas trees of all of my angels and ornaments. What a great opportunity for me to say “Thank you”.

In the photo Janet and I are in the back yard of the Governor’s house in Colonial Williamsburg and even though it was 14th of November it was unseasonably warm, in the high 60’s, sunny and beautiful!

I love Colonial Williamsburg and have been there two times before and each time I have been inspired by the architecture, the interiors and most of all the gardens. My first visit in 1988 was a strong influence in my own garden design. The parterres, vistas, arches and gates of Williamsburg were inspirational then and still are today! These gardens were also instrumental in confirming my passion for boxwood hedges and topiary!

Margaret Furlong Signing Angels

Dear Friends,
I am headed to Virginia!  We have scheduled 3 events in Virginia this year so I will be looking for you to come and visit me and see the new angels.  If you have one angel or ornament at home, bring it to the signing and I will sign that piece for you too.  I will be giving a FREE 2″ Liberty Angel to the first 10 people in line who make a purchase.

Most of these retailers are now carrying my new jewelry line. Call the retailer to find out if they have my jewelry in stock!  Here are the signing locations:
