If you’re enjoying shopping in downtown Beaufort this week, stop in and say hello! I’ll be open Wed. through Friday afternoons from 1-4 pm, and possibly Christmas Eve too. 811 Bay Street #3. Look for my sandwich board sign on the sidewalk. If it’s out, come on up. (If you don’t see it, save yourself the climb – ;0) ).
Time is running out to order an artsyletters gift for Christmas! I’ll make mail runs in the next couple of days. If you’re a Beaufort area local, I’ll keep afternoon hours in my studio on Bay Street the last few days of this week. Happy Holidays!

Some weeks there’s some cross-pollination between my writing blog and my art blog. Today for Poetry Friday, I featured a Christmas poem by George Cooper from the December 26, 1896 edition of GOLDEN DAYS for Boys and Girls published in Philadelphia by James Elverson. This is the newsprint magazine that yielded those mini-ornament found poems I featured on my author blog a couple of weeks ago. (And promptly sold in my Etsy shop to my online poetry friends!)
I found one more teeny frame in my studio this week. I’m certain this is the last one (would love to come across more either online or in a thrift store!) . This one was missing its wee bit of hardware, but I improvised.
Here is the highlighted text:
For this one day,
be merry with heart
and here are a couple of pictures of the ornament-in-progress.
For a slightly more detailed “how-to” with actual words, click here for my account of making a small batch of these year before last.
Whatever your faith tradition, I hope you FIND much to be merry about this holiday season!
Hi, Friends! Happy to be featured on my buddy Elizabeth Dulemba’s terrific blog today (waves over The Pond to Scotland). Be sure to check out the vast treasures at her place if you click the pic above and go visit!
Also, I’ll be hanging out at my studio in downtown Beaufort this afternoon – drop on by if you’re around.
There’s a nip in the air, and the calendar says it’s time to do some holiday celebrating and shopping! Come by and say hello if you’re out and about in downtown Beaufort this weekend. (My A-Frame sign will be down on the sidewalk when my studio is open.) I’ll warm up some cider and have some goodies available Friday night, 6-9 p.m.
