Gallery Friday Coming Up

The world is so full of a number of things, I’m sure we should all be as happy as kings.”
Robert Louis Stevenson

Spring is so full of wonderful things that draw my attention away from the studio. The gardens call to me each day to see what new surprise is waiting for me and what weeds need to be pulled before they take over. I have managed to get in a bit of studio time. This Friday is the Artisans’ Gallery Friday in downtown Columbia, Tennessee, so there’s no time to waste.
Stop by if you are in the area and enjoy some wine, music and great art. This month we are also hosting the Advanced Placement Art Class from Columbia Central High School. There are some very talented students participating. Please help to spread the word.

See you there!

Land and Sea

I just finished refurbishing my herb beds and yesterday, while I was in Columbia I found the perfect ornament. I usually don’t buy on impulse, but these handmade clay mushrooms were tooooo cute. I got them at Loblolly Interiors Market Antiques. It is a gorgeous store with beautiful paintings, fun accessories, and antiques. If you are in Columbia, you should stop by.
Coming up this Thursday is Silo Studio’s Studio Thursday sale. This show has a beach theme, so I created some beach themed jewelry and will have it there along with my other new jewelry. The show is from 9:00 until 2:00 so don’t miss it.

Nashville Tennessee Flood 2010

In case any of you weren’t aware, Nashville and Middle Tennessee are going through one of the worst disasters in our history. I was away in Florida during the flood, and had no TV where I was and very little internet access. My husband was telling me about what was going on, but it wasn’t until Monday when I returned, that I understood the extent of the damage. When I saw the news footage of Nashville I was moved to tears. From what I understand, it got very little national coverage. Please watch the video and you will be amazed at the amount of water that inundated our state. My younger son is a fireman in Smyrna and was on duty all weekend as they helped evacuate people. Our home was unscathed, but I know several people who lost much in the flood.
I have posted some items in my Etsy shop for all proceeds to go to help the flood victims. Please remember the flood victims in your prayers and I’m sure any help would be appreciated. If you don’t see anything in my shop that is to your liking, just type in “Nashville” in the search box and you will find others who are also posting flood relief items. Thanks!
