Upon first glance Danielle Doyle does not strike one as an inventor. Nowhere are the thick glasses, the pocket protector, the pencil tied up in her hair. In fact, she has nothing in her hair but her latest invention, the FlowerPik.

Doyle has created a much needed item in the world of fashion, a personal, wearable bloom saving device.

Doyle was on a belated –11 years after the fact – honeymoon in Hawaii with her husband O’Donell and realized that she had a need to keep the flowers fresh that she was putting in her hair.

Before leaving Hawaii, the Doyles had formulated their idea for what type of product was needed and the FlowerPik was born.

Swart opens Snowdog, an eclectic gift shop in Brookings

A visitor to Snowdog, Diane Swart’s eclectic gift shop at 1105 Chetco Ave., will be greeted by two magnificent Siberian huskies, no doubt the reason for the shop’s name. A visitor need not worry about being greeted too enthusiastically. The dogs don’t jump up, bark, or try to lick hands. Mishka and Nukka are calm, quiet, unobtrusive, and beautiful.

Swart, who described her shop as filled with “primitive country antiques and collectibles, a bit of new a bit of old,” said she chose the huskies because, “I wanted dogs that wanted to exercise with me, and I surely got that. They’re a lot of fun.”

The name was appropriate at the time when the Dillons purchased the business  because bagels were the major draw.

Business owner keeps busy creating glass art

Ruth Stoner, proprietor of Glassic Designs, 1105 D Chetco Ave., has a small bathtub size kiln that she keeps busy slumping, shaping, and draping glass of all sizes, colors and shapes.

Ruth and her husband John moved to Brookings in November last year. She said she came to Brookings from the mountains of Colorado when John, a mental health coordinator, said he had been thinking about making a move and he wanted to live in a small town by the ocean.

After a bit of investigating, they decided to take a look at the Oregon Coast. “We came to look in May, and we liked it,” she said. “He was offered a job and we moved in November.”
