We woke up to a fresh blanket of snow the other morning here in Rutland.  Vermont in the winter is one of my favorite things, and being greeted with fresh snow after only a short time here is a welcome start to things. Tonight, Miss G and I went to the opening reception at the […]

Loss and Found

This past weekend’s Open Studios event at Vernon Street was a complete success.  It was our last official event in the Boston area before leaving the area, and it was nice to go out on such a strong note. We had our best sales date in over a year, and we enjoyed having the opportunity […]
