I am working on my invitations for something fun 7/22. Please email me your interest and I will add you to the list! .

Rays of light transformed by fabric and shaped into unique lampshades by Ruth Carter and her sister Carolyn Ellsworth will be on display and sale.
Music will join the light dancing around the room. Bill Carter and Gabe Rhodes will provide entertainment and feature songs written by Ruth and Bill Carter.
Refreshments and libations provided by many of RajiWorld’s local favorites and friends including Tito’s Vodka, Moony June from Bone Spirits, wines from Piatelli Vineyards, Souverain Vineyards, beer from South Austin Brewery including Evel Ale, Kombucha form Buddah’s Brew, bbq and dessert from Sum Pig BBQ, snacks from Snack Bar and Maria’s Taco Express, more dessert from Zuchinni Kill Bakery and coffee from Patika!!


I am proud to present the first public appearance of JANIS. She is a very magical lamp, named for, of course Janis Joplin.  “I loved her style and her laugh. She loved the outlandish and was larger than life.” This was written by her designer Ruth Ellsworth Carter. I think it is fitting to debut this work of art at Antone’s Home of The Blues where another work of Ruth’s found it’s first home. The co-write between Ruth and her husband Bill Carter for Stevie Ray Vaughan Crossfire went on to become a world-wide hit and Billboard #1 single for Stevie and his band Double Trouble (Chris LaytonTommy ShannonReese Wynans).

I think most music, pop culture and fashion fans would agree, Janis and Prince share a lot in the additions they made to the wonderful world of rock and roll and I could not think of a better place to show off this lamp! She is for sale for $2000 if you just can’t help yourself.
