From Our Hands ... and Hearts ~


The sleepy little town of Peninsula, Ohio
 is as quaint as any one depicted in the Currier & Ives prints from days gone by.

Church steeples reaching towards the heavens...
…charming-ly painted homes with gingerbread trim in
colors of red, mustard, brown & sage  heralded us from both sides of the road ~
both welcoming and guiding us towards the beautifully historic
Boston Township Hall
where we would be gathering for the show.

Friends & Folks were lining up early in the cold sunshine outside the hall,
~ down the sidewalk and around the corner.

{the PSS members were first in line, of course ~ chattering with excitement and anticipation}

Lori Ann & Rebecca were the perfect hostesses 
~ greeting us with their beautiful smiles and personalities...

here are photos of the artisan's booths before the doors opened ~
I'll let them speak for themselves….

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~::~~~~~~~~~~~~
I want to thank Lori Ann & Rebekah for all of their hard work & hospitality ~

I would like to thank everyone who came out to the show
for their smiling faces & support of what we do…




* Blessed be * 
Lori

If my voice wasn't gone I would be whining loudly. Thank you so much for the photos. What a gathering!

Jan said...

It was a great show ~ and so nice meeting you, Lori! I'm so lucky to live just up the street but it would have been worth a much longer trip. You should see us this morning, fully blanketed with a layer of white snow! Too soon, but very pretty.

How lucky you are to be a part of that wonderful group. Have seen so many of those artist here in the Northeast at one time or another. Wonder if you sold all your pictures. I would love the folk angel in the green frame.

It's times like this that I am saddened to be living the the South West ... We have NO such artists in this area. What a loss for us but for you... WoW! ALL so amazing and talented. Wish I could be there!

Peace to all,
