Vignettes from Vermont: Psychedelic Snooki

18x80 silver Oscar Dot Wrap $135 ... scarves available HERE

BENNINGTON -- Your ears light a cigarette seconds after Caron Miller fills them with a swirl of breathy words. "I'm crazy, I'm fun, I'm vivacious," she declares on the other side of the phone line, on the other side of the country, on the other side of the universe.




... "My purpose in life," she continues, "is to support women who are fabulous."

Which women are fabulous? and Caron answers "All women are fabulous."

And so...

Fiddlehead at Four Corners art gallery received a box today from paradise -- Santa Barbara -- and inside of it were 21 folded scarves with names such as Le Groovy Single Silk Marrow and La Wrap Her Mesh and Oscar Dot Wrap and Her Party Girl Crushed Organza and La Wrap Her Shim Angle Marrow and even Blissiousness Wrap.

Caron's website says: Go with what you've got and show it off. Caron's accessories are designed to embellish your basics (big, small -- bodacious, or itty bitty). "Wearable art" is the way she describes all this craziness. "It's like painting with fabric."

Her name has been accented 4 ways depending on her time in Canada, Wisconsin, Jersey and Cali. The Santa Barbara version is "like Corona beer without the A at the end." She's "52 and fabulous" and her tits galore highlight a 5-foot size-10 frame -- "it's all about the boobs" -- as evidenced in the photo above, taken during her Ken and Barbie summer solstice party last June. Psychedelic Snooki is probably the best way to characterize that picture, in a good way. Seriously. Hey, some guys think Snooki is hotter than Georgia asphalt.

Caron Miller entered the world in Canada before the family moved to Wisconsin, then Jersey. She hit the road in the '80s and stumbled upon Santa Barbara "And I knew I was meant to be in California." The website chronicles her story, vision and list of values.

The 18x80 silver Oscar Wrap Dot you see wrapped around Art Gallery Dude's neck at the top got its name, Caron said, "because they're using that fabric for the Oscars." AGD asks if her threads have been spotted at the world's biggest award show and she answers "I'm just waiting for my moment, love."

All of these scarves modeled by Art Gallery Dude will appear at www.getartbehappy.com by Noon tomorrow. If you want one or more today call (802) 447-1000 by 6 p.m. or email getartbehappy@gmail.com by midnight and we'll waive shipping costs.
