Come Bless the Combines

Another post in less than a week! Just want to remind everyone that the 11th Annual Blessing of the Combines happens this Saturday on Green St. Snow Hill will be abuzz with the parade, all kinds of vendors, a car show, kids games and activities. Any kind of food you want will be available either from our 3 downtown restaurants, the Legion or vendors - our favorite food vendor is Tommy Mason and his barbecue. If you need to cool off, Bishop's Stock is a great place to do this - plus you can see the Charm of Chickens and our recycled farm equipment sculptures - plus a few combine paintings. The Gatski sculpture ( like the "Case" fish shown) and combine paintings will be discounted 20%. We will even show you other work by the Gatskis and special orders will be discounted as well - just this one day only!

The Blog Returns

No excuses - blogging is not my thing but I promise to make it a priority now that my website will have a new look and a tab for my blog. Nothing like old news - year old news! Summer is flying by with the most incredible weather. Sarge - our 6 year old Golden - is now my gallery greeter. We lost our dear Summoner in June so leaving Sarge home alone just would not work. Sarge was a perfect host at our July 3 First Friday reception! That was the opening for Phyl Whiton's feature - The Charm of Chickens. The show has been well received - lots of color and energy. Check out Feeding Time. The show will be up through next weekend. Come to the Blessing of the Combines next Saturday and check out the chickens! We will be offering 20% off the recycled farm machinery sculpture we carry.
