New Swag at Arts Abound

We appreciate Sue Wheeler at Arts Abound for being so generous and willing to be the pickup point for the podcast prizes. It’s always a treat to stop by the store because there are so many beautiful things there, especially from fellow contributor Donna Ardizzoni. Sue showed me her brand new (not even on the shelf yet as I write this) Magnolia T Shirts. She and Deb Schradieck worked together to bring these awesome new T shirts to the store. I immediately purchased one each for Jim and I. Love the design, love the color! Get yours at Arts Abound on Lexington Ave in Magnolia. And pick up those prizes if you haven’t already……

Deer in the Neighborhood

It is not at all uncommon for a number of deer to make their way across the marsh behind our apartment late in the afternoon. It makes for a very pretty sight with the sun starting to set and the lush green grass so it’s quite fascinating to watch. So, I photograph them. Google very nicely created an animation for me using a series of photos taken of a leaping-in-the-damp-marsh deer and I thought it was cool enough to share.
