Jester Love

41-JESTER-2 JESTER-photo_3-(12) jester-dogs-the-trainee jester4 jester3-fierce-swapped2JavaZarf digi6The holidays are behind us now.  Well….Valentine’s Day is coming up in a couple of weeks.  But the serious stuff is behind us.  Soon Spring will be here.  I am excited and happy about that especially since we have had about 19 inches of snow in the last couple of days.  Here just to cheer us up are some silly jesters.

Christmas is almost here

Merry Christmas from all of us here at the Charmed Gourd.  We are sending wishes for a happy and healthy holiday season.  Don’t forget our work is at Downriver Council for the Arts Winter Wonderland boutique through January 9, 2015.  That is at 81 Chestnut street in Wyandotte, MI.  Hours are Wed through Sat….9am-5pm.

3 little Kittens, The Claus family and all of us here want to say Merry Christmas.  Hope it is jolly, and everything you have dreamed of.


Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is the best holiday.  Not that I am a Grinch (well, maybe a little)…but Christmas is a bit stressful at times, especially for procrastinators like me….last minute Louise. And It’s a tough economy….people are struggling.    Even if you can afford it…there is the stress of choosing the right gift…you worry that it will end up in the “What was Aunt Maude thinking drawer” with the I Love Christmas sweater and the Hilary Clinton Nutcracker.  But Thanksgiving is different….no stress except for the chef (poor Laurie).  But no stress is why I love this day….on Thanksgiving there are no expectations…there is nothing to do but come together and share a meal and the company of our family and friends. That’s my favorite thing…that and the pumpkin pie.

The Exhibit and Boutique will take place between Dec 4 2014- Jan 9-2015. Downriver Council for the Arts is at 81 Chestnut Street (Masonic Temple) in Wyandotte, Michigan. The gallery hours are Wed-Sat 9 to 5 and until 8 p.m. on Festive Fridays.image
