My sweet husband, Robert, is getting ready for his 2nd art show! He has been using his talents to make leather goods for 5 years now – ever since retirement. Time flies.

Today is the big day, December 3 / 1-5pm!

Robert’s booth will be at 1228 Shirley Street, Columbia SC. (803) 360-3144


Here is a link for the show with more information.

Since he was so busy getting ready, I was feeling a little underfoot. I decided to go to the studio and paint. Guess what was there? The Annual Midlands Clay Arts Pottery Sale!

This is a very popular sale, and there were people everywhere!

Still feeling somewhat underfoot, I went into my cozy studio and painted some.

Progress being made.

Come by and say hello tomorrow, or go online and leave him a note. It is really heartwarming to see him enjoying his retirement. He earned every minute.

I’ll be right there too, underfoot!

Thank you,
