The Halloween Costume!

Wilson has discovered Bugs Bunny, he LOVES the classic cartoons, and that is what he wanted to be for Halloween this year! I painted a plain white mask, and glued the bunny nose on. Then I couldn't find gray ears,but, I was able to find white ones (Bugs is a gray bunny) so I had to paint those. I have a gray sweat shirt that I will attach a fuzzy white tummy, and a fluffy tail too. Add gray sweat pants, and you have Bugs Bunny! He will also be carrying an Ithaca Farmers' Market bag full of (fake) organic carrots.

Last Sunday Market!

I'm trying to get things painted for my last Sunday at the Ithaca Farmers' Market. My inventory is a bit low, but I have plenty of switch plates and a selection of Holiday Bobs (ornaments)! Life has been a bit hectic with openings and the Art Trail the last 2 weekends at the Gallerage. I need to get my kid's classes and a floor cloth class organized. I am working it!

Let the Sunshine IN!

It is supposed to be a warm day, I look forward to opening the garage door, and letting in the light- I just hope we don't get a hard rain!

New Wilson YouTube!

Wilson knows how to party at a wedding! This video is so funny, I almost wet my pants laughing so hard! Take a look at a REAL dancing fool!

Don and Wils are home! They went to our niece's wedding in Baltimore this past weekend. I was very sorry not to be able to go, but I had signed up and paid for the Art Trail before we got the invitation. I really would have LOVED to have been there! Congratulations Lauren and Ian! I heard it was a great party at the Modern Art Museum on the Inner Harbor! My guys enjoyed their "all boy" road trip anyway.
Today I will shopping for soup supplies and whipping up a batch of sausage tortellini soup for tomorrow at Bun Appetit. Then at 2:00 Gary is coming over with new pots! A new supply of Gary Rith pottery will be on display at the Gallerage! I hear he is bringing cows, and much more!

Happy Holidays!

I guess the holiday shopping season has started! I sold a bunch of my "holiday Bobs" yesterday, and I am cooking a couple of more up for today. The Gallerage had a nice turn out for the Art Trail Open House, and today is the last day- stop by and say HI! You can also pick up a brochure with a map and listings for all the other open studios on the Art Trail. It is a fun way to spend a fall afternoon.
I will be unpacking my power miter saw this week. I need to start stocking up on my spindle Santas. Last year for my Birthday I got a saw, and I haven't used it yet. I made a bunch of these little guys last year (cut with a hand miter box) and they were very popular. It will be a lot easier to produce them with a power saw!
Now I have to get set up for the Art Trail, it runs from 11:00-5:00.

Made the news!

I just saw the Ithaca journal check it out!

Big weekend coming up!

The Ithaca Art Trail open studio tours are this weekend. I am on the trail! Stop by 215 Main st. at Thou Art Gallerage! I am not sure how much traffic I will get, I'm a bit of an island here in Groton. I will also have Alice Muhlback's opening reception for Heart is in the RIGHT place. Maybe I can "bribe "people to come out for free food and wine!
