Thank You to the Art on Main Jurors

Art on Main celebrated their 50th anniversary this year.

They gave a Best of Show, First for Art and one for Craft and 2 Honorable mentions. My work got an honorable mention for fine craft.

Oops for leaving the glass cleaner in my photo!

58 booths were set up along Main St. The weather was nice both days and people were out all day. We stayed in a wonderful B&B, The Waverly Inn, on Main St so we could walk to and from the show. Made new friends, great breakfasts and social hour. Highly recommended as a great place to stay in Hendersonville!!

Best of Show went to a photographer Clay Thurston who does remarkable photographs.

Obayana Ajanaku received the first place for his jewelry.He does wonderful work with mokume gane.

Time to restock for the Celebration of Seagrove Potters. Hope to see you there!

The Gardens Loved the Rain!!

I took these this morning when I was outside with Bacchus and Rusty! The flower gardens still have a lot of color and everything is perky and dew drop covered!

The vegetable garden is more than thriving! There are two lovely eggplants for tomorrow night's vegetable stir fry, the peas and new cucmber are flowering, red peppers are still coming in at a rapid pace. Several rows of a variety of greens are getting big, some TOO big already. And how about that asparagus stalk at the end of one of the asparagus rows. Tempting to pick that one!! And now 37 days until the Celebration of Seagrove Potters. If you haven't gotten your GALA tickets, click here and buy them on line.

NCPC Fundraiser & Thanks to Those That Truly Care

Thank you to all that came to our party. We hope you enjoyed the night and
thanks for supporting the NCPC! It plays such a vital part of our community.

We had lots of food and beverages. As a compliment to what I had prepared we had some help: Meredith Heywood brought a pesto cheesecake and sweet tea, Bonnie Burns supplied bruschettas and corn salsa, Ikuko Hussy (Skoshi) brought her famous rum cake and sesame cookies, and Susan Greene brought a wide array of freshly baked desserts.

I am hopeful that we raised over $1500 for the NCPC but the total is not yet in!
